Catalyst Game Labs: BattleTech Clan Invasion box set

Recommended Posts

My interest is more to the human-level anyway, so I want the fluff as much as Mr. Thorne wants the 'Mechs. 

But.. we're up to Bloodnamed!. Might pick up another of those, once pledge manager is out... we'll see what we end up doing.

Unfortunately the main BT forums are a hotbed of trolling and jerks. I never go to that forum because of that. Sad, really.

Are we talking about the same forums?  The BT forums aren't as nice as Reaper's (but whose are?) but I don't think the BT forums are that bad.

It has been years since I left. This is good news. I may log back in again and try it out.

There is a Merc unit called the Black Thorns...

 

Weren't they wiped out by  a continuity "oopsie" during the Word of Blake's 10 year temper tantrum?

I've seen some of your questions there. I am Kevin Collier in other questions.

So who else is posting there and what are you posting under?

 

I post under this name in all three forums, but I am rarely in the Kickstarter comments. If I post, it is usually just for a one-off question.

They might have been, I don't have the Jihad books.

I use the same avatar. >.>

But I don't comment often; mostly because I rarely have anything useful to offer.

 

Aside from a not-so-thinly veiled reference, that is. <.<

I'm Weirdo on the KS and the Battletech forums.

 

As one of the mods over there, I'll admit that we've had issues with trolls and such in the past, but I feel it's much better now. These days, our issues are usually with newcomers who haven't internalized the rules yet, or those who take umbrage with the idea that when they agreed to follow forum rules during signup, they might actually be expected to follow said rules.

Hey, here is a really hysterical scenario to run. This is where the Intentional Skid rule came from when my players asked during this event I was running at a Con. It's called "Icecapades". The entire playing area is a glacier with some elevation changes. Any mech that walks must make a piloting skill roll +1, if you run +2, jump +4. Due to extreme cold you gain +5 cooling each turn. A deliberate skid on ice  doubles distance traveled. Straight line, always full distance. If you hit another mech, their piloting roll to dodge is a +2 to remain standing and then they have to roll a skid of at least 2 hexes determined by a D6 roll, 1-2 to left, 3-4 straight, 5-6 to the right. Mechs may not shoot while skidding, jumping or running.

I don't suppose you own a copy of the "Boreal Reach" map from the Solaris VII box, do you?

 

Solid ice, and the giant crevasse could be an endless source of fun.

As someone who helped run a BT forum 20 years ago, somethings never change. :rolleyes:

Well, this has prompted me to get going on a long overdue painting of nearly a Battalion's worth of mechs I have had sitting around unfinished for way too long. In my own defense, we have been worn out the last 4 years as our parents failed and we lost them all. We were their caregivers so gaming and other hobbies were stored. Now I am debating over stripping 2 more stars of mechs for repainting, based on what I will be doing with all the goodies from the KS.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 5 Kickstarter.

      This is the thread for conversations, enthusiasm, and commentary.
        
      This thread will be lightly moderated to ensure forum rules are followed and specific questions may be relocated to the Official Information thread.
