Catalyst Game Labs: BattleTech Clan Invasion box set

Recommended Posts

I had one once that I gave to another player as a gift. It was painted up like R2D2 and had a Wyvern with it as C3PO.

Also, if you want to drive someone nuts in an urban fight, run 4 Urbies, 4 Hunchbacks and 4 Hatchetman mechs.

Ohhhhh, that sounds like an evil team full of hurt for an urban fight...

have you considered painting fake wood slats, a cork and a metal ring on the body of the urban mech to make a bourbon mech? (I'm saying make one a barrel) 

That.... I might have to buy an extra one just to do that...   I'd prefer the AC20 version for that, but still..... :p

I love the "Bourbonmech" idea. Fit it with a RAC 5 and a spigot!

And paint it up like a bottle of Maker's Mark...

I have decal printing paper so it could be done!

Is it bad that I'm actually starting to get excited over the trashcan of doom, and how I'll be getting three of them? ^_^

 

I can't speak to the (surprisingly large) cadre of urbie fanatics, but I have always felt that it had a certain amount of adorable underdog charm.

 

They are even reasonably useful in defensive missions, where the enemy is constrained by terrain to come to the urbanmech, rather than the other way around.

1.932 with 53 hours to go. I think we're gonna make it.  Went to the LGS today with a bunch of odd books I had wound up with that were just taking up space. Got enough in credit for the old Wolf Clan Sourcebook and 4 mechs. They are now assembled and primed.

 

I'm gonna have to do the Bourbonmech...

Snippets from the AMA on YouTube so far...

 

Mention about first wave packs....

Very confident in addition to the clan invasion: Clan Commander Star, Inner Sphere Command Star, Clan Heavy Star

Hoping to sneak in: Battle Lance, Clan Fire Star

 

Also mentioned - there's more than likely going to be an Iron Wind Metals buy four get one free "classic" Clan Star in the pledge manager offered up.

 

Quads and vehicles are coming.  Quads didn't happen this time because they don't fit on a hex, and they wanted retail-friendly stuff first.  LAM and Aerospace fighters are currently outside of the scope of the expansions.  Will they happen?  If this one's successful, they are tempted to do such, but are also tempted to do it with Iron Wind Metal instead.

 

Alien Worlds map will be available in pledge manager, uncertain about whether wave 1 or wave 2.

 

New Zealand shipping will be similar to Australia, looks like AUS + $3-5 on initial overlook.

 

Got an answer about Crescent Hawk - not this time around.  Next time, mercenaries, periphery, and minor factions are definitely in the plans.  Crescent Hawks are also getting a bunch of attention too, whoo!

 

Magazine will be open for fan submissions.  More information once the goal is reached, and guidelines will be posted.

 

Can stores be listed?  Looks like they'll talk with the various stores, and if they're okay, they'll put out a list of the stores that supported the Kickstarter.  One or two stores listening in said they loved the idea, and how they could definitely use the support.

 

There are plans for Eridani Light Horse apparently.

 

Gray. Death. Legion.  Blaine and... Brent... Biiiig plans.  None for this Kickstarter just yet.

 

Someone jokingly is pushing for a Natasha Kerensky body pillow case in the comments, and Brent is having fun teasing it, and how it would probably help clear 3 million.

 

Alpha Strike and Total Warfare are the two main rulesets they're looking at keeping the focus on.

 

 

To Ryan P. in the comments... Is that someone here? :P

I'd trade 1 urbie for a firestarter, but yeah

At the Gencon 2015 "Masters and Minions" event, one table had a force of 2 Urbanmechs and 2 Imps, all painted up as Dreamworks "Minions".

 

That was commitment to a theme.

      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.
