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.....

Park lower half in water, alpha strike doesn't burn you up as much? :p

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.

      Queen Titania will be cast in resin, 15 part kit, coming with a textured base. At an impressive 160mm height to the tip of the horns she towers over mere mortals on your battlefield unleashing nature's wrat
      h!
      The kit can be assembled in two variants: with an ornate bikini armor or savagely topless.

      Midlam keeps doing exactly what I want. Rounding up my collection with original miniatures that pairs up well with the original.

      A Note on Metal
      We moving onto a lead free high quality pewter from a reputable metal dealer.  All our past metals had a high Tin content, but could contain a small quantity of lead (typically no more than 5%).  Even still, we cannot guarantee that any of our metal will be entirely lead free.
