Catalyst Game Labs: BattleTech Clan Invasion box set

Don't forget the Ghost Bears have an entire Galaxy of Elementals...

They're getting a star of mechs because of various reasons, one of them being a different paint job, another to deal with the salvage packs, and a third because hubby kind of likes them. ^_^;;;

 

I'm not too certain what my thoughts are on clan murder fuzzy wuzzy bear arms of doom is.  Much higher than squawky green-ish pigeons of noisyness naturally, and also higher than smoked spotty boots of spotted ferocity (Smoke Jaguar), but I've never really felt much for Ghost Bear oddly enough.  Such could possibly be due to not looking into their info, not having really played the first four Mechwarrior games (after Crescent Hawk's Inception, I didn't touch a BattleTech universe game until MW2:Mercs), or ah unno. 

 

Besides, I'd have to properly commit to that insane idea first. Gawds, four Star Colonel pledges would be insanity personified... But it would definitely get me two of every mech (so one of each for Wolf and Coyote, the two main clan factions hubby and I chose), so there is that. 

 

Now, assuming I did go that route, if you were to suggest a trinary of mechs for Ghost Bear and then matching amount of elementals, that could possibly be an idea... And I'd still be able to give some to Wolf, some to Coyote, and naturally a decent amount to Hell's Horses as well (assuming I go the plastic elementals for them - they are cheaper when you factor in the bases, not to mention assembly time).  Hmmm...

Y’all make me feel downright restrained. ::D:

I think that closet full of goodies is why some of us have been going in so heavily.  I always did want a bunch of BattleTech stuff, and now, fairly soon, I very well may have that desire.  I'm strongly suspecting that I might wind up spending significantly more than I was originally expecting though *laughs nervously*

I've shown off a large chunk of my collection to a couple people who are interested in starting mini games lately. One the one hand it's pretty good sized with well over 1,000 (honestly never totaled it all) man sized minis and a bunch of larger things. I explain that it took 30+ years at roughly $2-300 a year (less in the beginning, trending more lately) to get it. On the other hand I know of people who's collections dwarf mine. Always wanted Battletech minis and now seems like the right time to jump on it. The last couple years have been about finishing/fulfilling lifelong wants for my collection. Castle, check, spaceships, check (although would love more than 2 fleets), mechs, check, fully painted large armies, getting there. :;): 

 

The one guy said it was a bit overwhelming and expensive to start on minis. I told him I had enough leftovers to get him started on fantasy or ancients skirmish games for less than the average boardgame (he buys a lot of boardgames) and everything needed to make terrain fairly cheap. I could supply both sides for him to try out a bunch of things before jumping in buying anything.

So, no word on extending the closing date for the pledge manager?

I should probably lock in my pledge then, before I forget and the deadline goes by.....

Sadly no word yet.  Some are hoping they say something on Friday's update. Myself I'm still uncertain as to whether or not I want it open longer, got other things I want to put money towards for a bit (and then I want to save up for that CAV dropship, second wind of BattleTech PM, and someoney for Bones V too)

So watch your totals if completing your pledge this weekend.

I had a $75 credit, so selected one extra pack of the legendary mechwarriors and 2 starts of elementals.

Got to the total screen and owed $50.  So I removed everything I added and am only showing a credit of $25. 

I go to the last page and the total of items plus shipping don't equal the total, off by $50.  So I managed to break something.

Have messaged both the Catalyst and CrowdOx.

I'm rather surprised we didn't see much in today's update, especially with the pledge manager closing.  We still have several wave 1 items that they haven't talked about or shown (patches, pins, the other four Tukayyid maps), and while there's been some commentary regarding ideas about whether or not they'll open longer or when the second+ Canon character surveys will go out, nothing more than the occasional comment has been said. 

 

I'm also curious about the dice that were redesigned, as the shirts too, since some of those had changes done to them.

I made some minor last-minute updates before things close down. I think everything I am still mulling over is wave two, and can wait.

I think after going back in I sorted it out and I was just getting confused with "you have 1 in your pledge" thing.  Maybe.
Would help if I could find the matching email, but I don't see the one for the last time I completed it for some reason.

I'll assume it is ok and complete it. And if they figure out there was an actual issue I'm sure they will let me know.

Yeah, that little glitch is annoying, since some things where you have 2+ it still just says you have one, and you look at it like it's speaking in a foreign language or something.

So they finally sent out the survey for if you got extra Star Commanders (or whatever). But the pledge manager is currently closed.......so if you opt to cash him out do you just have to wait for it to open again for wave 2?

There's two options being talked about, but neither confirmed

- a chance at it being reopened for stuff to arrive in wave 1 shipment, or

- use in wave 2.

 

Hopefully the next update or two will have something regarding this in it, although I'm suspecting wave 2 usage is the more likely option.

      Right now it's just a Notify Me page.
      Not sure when it goes Live, but it's set to let me know.

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.
