Heavy Metal was the first episode to enable me to test out the mecha/engels rules, set in New England in the US. It went fairly well, but highlighted a steep learning curve with the Framewerk rules. A lance of Claymore mecha pilots (plus a Cherub Engel) are sent on a simple search-and-destroy operation. The target: an EOD (Esoteric Order of Dagon) armoured column. Initially a success, events take a turn for the worse when a heavy Migou presence moves into the area, and the lance races to their pick-up point with Bugs hard on their heels, including a heavy Mantis mecha.
