And we have a winner! Yes, it's the new Condor with the weapons rescaled to match those found on the new 'Mechs.

Didn't see this one coming. From the Official BattleTech Forums:

Death_from_above wrote:Anthony just posted Mobile Long Tom Artillery concept art on his Patreon.

Model will come on 2 bases : artillery vehicle and ammo/crew trailers.

Also : "So this one falls really nicely into the map objective token category for spicing up your games"

He's allowing the image to be shared, but requests we wait till Aug 4th (GenCon start).


Some more snippets from various comments on his Patreon :

Q : Is the Mobile HQ going to be in a ForcePack like this one or a stand alone product like the Shilone?
A : It'll be in a pack that is more objective focused.


So possibly : Mobile HQ, Mobile Long Tom,..


Q : Have the Imp, Falcon and Hornet been updated yet?
A : They won’t be making the cut this time.



Q : What a journey! My heart wants Reunification War-era mechs, like the Toro. My brain says it'd already be a slight stretch to ask for the Merlin. I think it deserves a little more attention as the first new mech in a while, and this focus on the 3025 era is probably the only time it'd make sense to do it. Also, it really, really needs some work. We could use a Karnov, too. It's the other VTOL that I think gets a lot of use.
A : Might have one of those for you


Since he confirmed the Warrior would be the only VTOL, that leaves the Toro or Merlin. Personally, I'm expecting the latter..


Q : "So, what is everyone looking forward to seeing from me the rest of the year?" Hatamoto-Chi, Manticore, Vedette, Hetzer.
A : I can get you two of those.


Since the Vedette has since been shown, my 5 C-bills for the remaining design are on the Manticore.


And now for the Long Tom...

Has the Counters Pack been brought up?

Five punchboards representing two armies of nearly eighty Unit and Command counters each.

Two maps that form a large Strategic BattleForce map; laminated, the back side can be used to create your own worlds.


Looks cool for planning your own overarching Theaters.

Some pics from GenCon are starting to show up on the BattleTech Forums. The orange vehicle to the left of the 'Sneak Peek' sign appears to be the Mobile HQ, while the orange 'Mech in the second pic could be a Chameleon (looks too big to be the Spector).

I should have waited a few weeks before asking about smaller unit focused rules/games apparently! Is Destiny scale for the RPG or a separate tabletop game?

BattleTech presently has two RPGs. A Time of War is the 4th edition of the older, 'crunchy' MechWarrior RPG whereas MechWarrior: Destiny is the rules lite RPG based on the Cue System.

Does Catalyst do a formal Gencon presentation like Paizo, Corvus Belli, and others do to show off upcoming products?

Thanks to you both for the info on the scale belonging to the Destiny RPG. I can't see why they wouldn't come out with a pure tabletop minis game as well if they're going through the trouble of making the minis. YMMV. Fingers crossed!

I like the pilot fig. Is that supposed to be one of the genefreak elemental pilots? If so, they really kept it toned and muscular but still proportioned realistically so it can be used as a normal human as well potentially.

Oh, 28mm BA, very nice. Now let's hope it's not that good so I can skip it.
I also want that Timber Wolf now, damn.

Considering they are both holding what looks like neurohelmets, they are very likely Mech pilots.
