So, here's hoping for the Annihilator, Imp, Falcon and... Hornet. Two very big 'Mechs, and two very small 'Mechs.


Anthony just posted the Firefly on his Patreon.. together with the Annihilator and Hoplite posted earlier, that gives us 3 candidates for the Wolf's Dragoons ForcePack. I'm guessing Imp for the 4th slot..

Firefly's an interesting choice. Hoplite is a weird 'Mech.

Finger's crossed on the Imp though. Would love to see a proper redesign of that thing.

hoplight makes sense as the hoplight is one of the 'goons unique designs.


my guess is the 4th mech will be the Shogun. 2 hundred tonners in one box seems unlikely.

No word of any follow up Kickstarter of any kind, or more fighters. Someday, maybe. But I wouldn’t bet at least until next year, or later. The Shilone fighter was a good choice for a gift, given its deep tie in to a major event in the Clan Invasion storyline.

I know the Hoplite is one of theirs. Doesn't make it any less weird.

And the Shogun, possibly the rarest 'Mech in the Inner Sphere? Might as well throw a Rifleman III in there for good measure!

Designer said that the Shilone was not a harbinger of things to come and was just a one-off design unrelated to future plans.

this, I think the shilone was more a "passion project" for the designer. for those unaware the shiloine was used to ram the bridge of the clan flagship that killed the ilkhan and stopped the clan invasion for a year. was pretty epic stuff.

... course if you don't know this means you've not read the blood of kerensky novel trilogy, which are worth reading.

its incorrect to say theres no word of a follow up kickstarter. They told us about a year back that they plan one which will be focused on mercs. whether thats imminent or something that they are going to take some time to develop and work on is unclear.

Doesn't that run the risk of leaving popular factions out of stock and unpopular factions sitting on shelves going nowhere?

I mean, Loren can't by all the Cappie boxes himself.

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

The Vindicator was a very obvious omission from the Kickstarter, for such a common mech.

Pre-clan I identified as a Cappie.

I mean in fairness if the cappie box had a raven, a vindiator a cataphract and a cyclops I'd proably buy one or two of those myself.

the capcon is also, bafflingly popular among the Btech community, although I wonder how many of those people are real capcon fans and how many just pretend to be so they can be edgy anti-fedsuns

I have a small Cappie force as well. I like a lot of their designs, like the Jinggau , Lao Hu and Sha Yu. And the Ti Ts'ang is a monster.

So the dropship landed

I seem to have gotten lucky with the regular Salvage boxes, as out of 14 I got:

2 Dragonflies
2 Man O'Wars
1 Shadow Cat
1 Koshi
1 Grendel
1 Fenris
1 Puma
1 Black Hawk
1 Daishi
1 Mad Cat
1 Loki
1 Thor

So not bad at all, I'd say

I'm a CapCon for the silliest reason. Back when I bought my 1st Btech box I saw the little black mech arm holding a katana over a green field and I decided I wanted to join that faction.

And the Ti Ts'ang is a monster.

Does anyone know if the Urbanmech will be available outside of the salvage box? One of my merc companies makes exclusive use out of them, and id rather not pay the scalpers $40-50 a potato.

They just want the Maskirovka to believe that they're supporters of Sun Tzu and they're very good at it.

The answer is simpler. That saw how much better CC mechs are over the FedRat ones once they split with the Lyrans that decided to rejoin.
