Catalyst Game Labs: BattleTech Clan Invasion box set

Recommended Posts

I was at the track all weekend, so just watched the tracker go higher and higher.

Stayed at Star Colonel but have enough pledged for x2 or whatever the next level is, or just many add-ons (or all the Urbanmechs!! ).

 

Hope it all goes smoothly from here.  Big stompy robots and multiple waves makes me slightly nervous for some reason.... (Robotech)

I expect CGL to do a better job of this than Palladium did.  I also expect CGL to do a better job of this than they did for Sprawl Ops.  Not only have they learned from that KS but this KS is really important to the future of the BattleTech line (whereas Sprawl Ops looks like a side project for the Shadowrun line).

 

(Although I also expected Ninja Division to ship Relic Knights, so I don't have the best track record here.)

The fact that CGL listened to the problems from Sprawl Ops and changed things is a good sign. While nothing and no one is perfect, they are at least trying to make this work better.

I'm not exactly a fan of the dual waves of shipping since it means I'll be paying an extra $25-30 USD on top of the previous $50 USD, but on the flipside if it gets me the first quarter or third of my things, it does let me get started on building up a force... 

 

I just hope I can shoehorn a few of the books into that first shipment, as I like larger books and need something new on the shelves ^_^

 

Now if only I could be fully decisive about what I'm getting and who I'll be painting O_o

Well I doubt that the shirts in the fan pack will come in my size, so a friend will be getting mine. Wish we could swap that out for mech credit!

Shouldn't they come in Light, Medium, Heavy and Assault sizes?

There was mention of eight SKU's, so hopefully they have some of the larger sizes ^_^

 

I'm looking forward to my two shirts, although now I'm debating between Coyote and several others (kind of contemplating Jade Falcon, oddly enough)

No knock on Catalyst, but that's a reeeeeally low bar.

Okay, I might have to look into a few more packs than originally expected...  These are gorgeous...

Especially that Nova Cat and I don't remember what it's packing... 

 

Edit: okay, that's a hefty hook it packs... 2x ER PPCs and 3x ER Large Lasers, niiiice.

Novacat Primary was 2 ER PPCs and 3 ER Large Lasers. Yeah, you could cook yourself right off!

I quite like the Linebacker too, although the lower legs seem a bit weird.  I like the big bulky mech look though.

My decision process for what to get will be to start with one of each and go from there.....

That's pretty much my thinking.  Problem still is do I paint one faction per side, or multiple.

The Linebacker has always been weird. As concept art, I’m calling this an improvement that doesn’t abandon the original look.

      YOU asked for it! DUCKQUEST FANTASY ROLEPLAY. This is the cover, with gratitude to Jon Hodgeson the illustrator and Rom Brown (Whippersnapper Artworkz) for the logo design and layout. What will be beyond the cover? As much as we can pack into it! It's Time for Epic Adventure!
      Time to explore Duckwyrld... where four valiant Heroes of Quackmoor have been summoned by Mandrake, founder of the Guild of Delvers, to do battle with the nefarious Mordux and his evil minions. Seated upon the legendary Throne of Bones, the power of the Duck Lord grows with each passing night. You must boldly descend into the darkest dungeons of Castle Greyduck, defeat the Champions of Chaos and end the wicked rule of Mordux!

As the campaign develops, expect to see new creations appear here... I can't wait to see what we come up with!

      Kamigakari: God Hunters is a tabletop role-playing game set in modern-day Japan that combines centuries of Japanese mythology with a modern-day setting and urban fantasy action. You play as a God Hunter, a being wielding supernatural strength, magical abilities, and reality-warping spiritual powers. Your mission is to protect an unsuspecting populace from evil beings known as Aramitama, and to prevent the supernatural from leaking into the public eye.
      Originally, the game was released in Japan by Arclight Games on November 2013 as Legendary Arms RPG Kamigakari, to great popularity. In January 2017, a text-only fan translation appeared on the internet, exposing Kamigakari to the attention of English-speaking RPG fans world wide, and creating a thriving fanbase that continues to grow to this day!
      Serpent Sea Games is a team of experienced RPG translation and development professionals, including the creator of the fan translation, who have licensed Kamigakari from the creators at Arclight Games for publication in English and want to bring the game officially to Western audiences.
        But we need your help to bring this book into existence!
      The Game
      The world of Kamigakari features a distinctly seinen action anime  and style to it. With crazy abilities and flashy powers, it's an over-the-top world where you can battle kaijus, giant robots, gods and demons all under the same umbrella. The system is designed to keep interactions as simple and intuitive as possible, for an easy pick-up-and-play. Kamigakari splits its play up into "scenes", which are short, episodic and will often split the focus onto individual players. It's a different experience compared to western systems that often assume the party is always together, which allows for more varied and engaging character focus and development.
      So what is a God Hunter? A God Hunter is a person who, through one means or another, has gained supernatural powers by possessing a shard of a legendary weapon, relic, suit of armor, or maybe even the crystallized soul of a legendary hero. These powers can be anything from a master of the sword or magic, transforming hero, a living avatar of flame, or the ultimate hacker. Instead of a familiar class-based system, Kamigakari uses its own character generation called Styles, which lets you mix and match your power sets to create a gun-slinging samurai, a chainsaw-wielding magical girl, a hacker who codes his magic into existence, or a hunter who stalks his victims through the shadows.
      And it's not just limited to your class: weapons and gear are utilized under the Arms system, a mechanic where a base weapon is upgraded over time by using materials or spending gold. Two basic swords, in the hands of two different god hunters, can end up very different weapons after extensive modification!
      An average God Hunter on a normal day. Does being a God Hunter mean that you hunt gods? Of course it does! With concepts rooted in Shintoism and traditional Japanese folklore, a God Hunter is tasked with tracking down dangerous beings known as Aramitama - a dark god that is born and grows in power by devouring the souls of its victims. Aramitama come in many forms - from recognizable Japanese icons like oni and tengu, mythical beings like the Pegasus or Griffin, to eldritch monstrosities made of gnashing teeth and glowing orbs. Upon defeating an Aramitama, God Hunters can use their remains to create stronger Regalia - magical weapons and equipment, in order to face even even more powerful Aramitama. It's not just a fun gameplay loop, either: These creatures threaten the sanctity of innocents and the world in their lust to reach their ultimate form, the Avatar of Ruin, a true god of destruction capable of ending the world. It's up to the God Hunters to prevent that!
      An Aramitama awakens. Kamigakari utilizes the unique Numen Dice pool. Numen Dice are resource wherein you roll a set of dice and use it to pay for abilities or change the outcome of a roll. There's many ways change, swap and spend dice. Players must be careful how they manage their Numen Pool to both survive the battle and save the perfect set of Numen Dice to activate their ultimate abilities!
      We'd like to support this game far into the future, and plan on translating and releasing supplements if financially viable. Arclight Games has also requested the creation of original content exclusive to the western release, but that can probably wait until we have a few expansion books finished, we're only mentioning it now in the interests of full transparency.

      and much more. You can also get character models and army units à la carte   (that's what I'm going to do). I backed his halflings and was extremely happy with what I received.
