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.

      Hi All!
      I happened to come across this project and instantly got sunk into the world of Obsidia.  I thought I would share it here with all the Reaper folks! 
      I'm sorry for bumping my own post a few times.  After backing this project, I learned that these are first time game creators and they were turned down by some high end famous reviewers at the very last minute due to the COVID situation... Which, in my opinion, is super lame!  I don't see how you cannot do a review unless you actually got the COVID!  I hope that this post gets Obsidia to more people which would bring many hours of fun and enjoyable play!
       
      "A dark fantasy tabletop game with spell casting & area control.  The fate of the colony is at stakes; build your empire & rule the realm!"
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joshbeck/obsidia
       
      1-4 PLAYERS, 90 MINUTES
      Players take turns exploring the dark realm of Obsidia by placing terrain tiles to create a dynamic and treacherous landscape. They'll send travelers from their home colonies out to found new towns, battling any enemy players or creatures in their path. Players will also cast spells unique to their colony class in order to gain the advantage. When all of Obsidia’s terrain has been discovered, the class controlling the most towns wins the game.

      This is a new project from Heroforge for precolored or prepainted custom minis. It also has an option for those with 3D printers to buy a pack of 10 of their custom minis as STL files.

        My name is Bruno and I recently decided to use my (few) graphic skills to design my own waterslide transfers, as I could not manage to get the details on my miniatures right. Especially the parchment, scrolls and purity seals never quite looked as good as I wanted. After sharing some of my work on Reddit and Instagram, I discovered many more miniature hobbyist had this same issue, which lead me to this kickstarter! Besides sharing my own designs, these transfers will be screen printed by industry leading professionals to the highest quality possible.    The first sheet The finished product will be an A5 (210x148 mm) transfer sheet printed in 3 colors: White, Black and Red. The sheet will have hundreds of different designs to give you the most flexibility possible when personalising your mini's. I will regularly add new designs to the sheet, taking into account the backers feedback, until the sheet is full.                      Now while this seems geared to Warhammer 40K at first glance there is going to be a lot that's of more general interest, how many minis have you got with open books, parchments etc that just don't look great when you try and do it yourself?
       
      seems well worth a go, and not bad price wise (if you've ever tried to make your own waterslide stuff)

      Story
      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!
