It is simpler yet, the renegade St Ives province finally saw through the New Avalon running dog media. So when his Celestial Wisdom offered mercy and reconciliation to his wayward kin the province saw fit to return to the Confederation.

stackpole's a novel writer. Doles was a sourcebook writer who mostly tried to retcon history to make his faction look good etc.

I got a couple of print on demand source books from DriveThruRGP in the mail today, First and Second Succession Wars and Golden Century, and it got me thinking, why the heck are the modern books so hard to find? I would love to get a copy of Operation Klondike and the other Historicals but they are just like, non-existent. Why aren't they all available in print on demand like these couple were? I could get PDFs but I'll never read them in that format. It's been easier to collect a near complete set of Rogue Trader books this year than it seems to be to find any of these Catalyst source books from the last ten years. I don't see any of that content listed on their planned releases and reprints.

part of what makes finding them so hard is that old books don't become "obselete" every few years when a new edition rolls around. my fedcom civil war sourcebook (just to name a random example) is as relevant today as it was when it came out.

This is not quite verbatim but this comes up with CGL and their response generally boils down to having limited resources and all POD conversions taking resources. They have mentioned that Klondike, Brush Wars and I think some others will go POD soon though so at least parts of the back catalog will continue to go through that.

This is perfect news for me! Is there anywhere that Catalyst actually posts news and more of a roadmap? Their site seems... poor. Knowing this is enough for me to know not to spend a huge chunk if one of these books came up on ebay so is really useful.

It would be very difficult to be better. I would swap that lot for some Mist Lynx and Gargoyle spam.

Say, is there a good iphone/ipad app for tracking at least a lance for battletech. I've got a bunch of laminated sheet, but I figure in this day and age there ought to be a way to do it on the computer/phone.

<edit> I found there’s an official one, but it only appears to track one mech at a time.

The Tukayyid Salvage Bits Bags at Gen Con and Beyond - BLP

The Tukayyid Salvage Bits Bags at Gen Con and Beyond

Our company, Creative Juggernaut, has been busy leading up to Gen Con. First, we produced hundreds of Stormcrow Tukayyid variants and shipped those to Catalyst for them to sell on their site. Second, we produced a batch of Black Knight Tukayyid variants and got those off as well. For Gen Con itself, we assembled Tukayyid Salvage Bit Bags, (around 700) as a convention release.

We jokingly called these “dime bags” in-house. They are parts and pieces of ‘Mechs that were unfit for release to the public. Some parts are partial casts, some are deformed in some manner, others have air bubbles (which look like damage). Our company believes in being green and rather than send these off to the landfill, we packaged them for resale. Each bag is the same size as the Black Knight and Stormcrow, but are crammed with random parts. The parts are from these two ‘Mechs, as well as some prototypes we did for a Marauder IIC, an UrbanMech, and a Crusader…but mostly Black Knight and Stormcrow parts and pieces.

So what good are they? These bits can be used on bases as battlefield debris for your ‘Mechs to be standing on or next to. The bits can be used to make fallen ‘Mech objective markers for Alpha Strike games. My personal use of these is for when a BattleMech is destroyed in a game. Rather than tip over a model I have worked hard to assemble and paint (risking damage), you can use these parts to mark dead enemies and comrades on the field/map.

I met one person that bought a few bags in hopes of getting enough to assemble a battle damaged Black Knight. No guarantees on such efforts, since the parts are randomly stuffed in the bags. I appreciated his ingenuity and creativity.

We didn’t announce these would be available at Gen Con because you never know until the last minute if they are going to be suitable for sale, etc. As it was, Brent loaded up a piece of luggage with Tukayyid Salvage Bits and lugged them personally to Gen Con. Things were so last minute, I don’t even have a photo of the bags right now.

Eventually, once the dust settles from convention season, these will go up for sale on the Catalyst Game Labs website – along with the Stormcrows and Black Knights. And yes, we are going to produce more ‘Mechs. No, we cannot solve international shipping prices nor are we selling these directly – you have to order them from Catalyst. Catalyst sets the sales price on these. There is no way to preview them online, so there’s no picking and choosing – you get a random bag stuffed with random parts.

We will do some social media posts when we know when they are for sale; but that is handled by Catalyst and there is no guarantee that we will gets a heads up. I would recommend watching their web site since you now know that they have stock of our products.

So what it next? I’m sworn to secrecy, but there are some big things coming from Creative Juggernaut…BIG things.

Very likely the Archer is the 2W variant with LRM20 and SRM4 in each shoulder pod.
The Archer has a different pose and the shoulder pods are raised at the back. I think that is the SRM4.

The Rifleman is also a different pose, however Wolf's Dragoons did not produce Riflemen. They had a small mobile mech production facility with them from the start, but it only produced Archers.

I don't mind additional sculpts of 3025 mechs, don't mind at all, but this makes three Archers so far.

I'm guessing it's a business decision to get more mechs into a box, but isn't it kind of weird that they're mocking this up as a Star?

The Dragoons used lances while they were blending in with the Inner Sphere. It would have been an even bigger headscratcher to all the Noble Houses if some mercs turned up with new tech and a weird combat organization.

The Rifleman may be there for John 'Gentleman Johnny' Clavell, although he seems to have only piloted one pre-3031.
