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.

WOW I just saw the new 3D render of the Stormcrow/Ryoken, it looks great! I really hope that the rest of resculpts turn out so well.

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.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.

      I backed the first Killer Rabbit Kickstarter and really enjoyed the figures.  A follow up one was just announced by Skull and Crown on Facebook:
