I never really noticed it before, but it's basically a Clan Atlas isn't it?

I actually don't really like that take on a Howler. It's absurdly, comically broad shoulders was the whole identity of it, to me.

It isn't bad though, I wouldn't be mad if I got one, but I don't think I would really buy that willingly. I just would rather the flat/broad look, like this.

More importantly, Halloween at the latest. Hoping to get them in by my B-day(first week of October).

We just had an AWESOME meeting with Quartermaster Logistics and everything is moving forward smoothly. We also heard from our miniatures manufacturer in the past 24 hours and they confirmed that all product scheduled for July 31st is DONE and being packaged for shipment to the local hubs!

You do know that the Kickstarter isn't just Clan 'mechs?

Yeah, I've seen that now.

Clan tech is fine- it's those pilots..... Gotta throw a little shade....


On a serious note, how do Catalyst's rules compare with CBT?

They are the same rules.

BTech really hasn't changed all that much. Things have been tweaked here and there, but really you can pick up and play with any of the older rulesets and you'll find things are much the same.

The more recent Catalyst releases are more about streamlining and clarifying (presentation wise, not streamlining rules).

So I literally just filled out my canon character survey where I had the option to take the credit. Now that they are locking down wave 1, I wonder what form that credit is going to take. If it will be like a card refund, or if I will just get to add like an extra model pack or something.

You can either take it as catalyst store credit, or use it on wave two stuff.

I went for Star Colonel, so the rebate is $75. I think that the rebate for the higher levels is more as the character design was more involved.

I'm using it to get a couple of rulebooks and take advantage of the free shipping, getting them direct from CGL to the UK is off-putting normally.

I wouldn't mind a pack of Elementals and another Mappack while I'm at it... Curses! KS creep strikes again!

The Highlander really looks better than its art. I'm also loving the Black Knight's globose style chestplate. It will contrast nicely with the typical chest heavy mechs, and looks like a solid menacing design.

Art is crazy expensive. Looks like they're getting their money's worth this time though.

Anyone care for the Legendary mechs? The Mad Cat is fine but the others.....just seem really bad.

I don't know about everyone else, but I've always seen Battletech as a "my guys" sort of game, so no interest statwise. Though alternately posed mech models isn't a bad thing - as long as they don't cost extra. On the KS previews, I like the Marauder and Mad Cat. Obvious problem with the Dire Wolf's gyro, and the Archer somehow looks "wrong" - too bulky.

I like the Legendary 'Mechs as they're different poses (and different in armament, in case of Kerensky's Daishi).

I've never been big on WYSIWYG in BTech, but having things that a visually distinctive from one another makes them easier to identify on the battlefield.

Sorry, what part of the Dire Wolf model is the gyro, and what's obviously wrong with it?

It's a joke about how the model is pointing up to the sky. Though, to be serious, I think in BT terms it's part of the (internal) lower center torso, possibly around the joint between the legs.

It's short for gyroscope (and not a Greek sandwich ) and is what is responsible for helping the 'mech keep it's balance.
