They're packing them one at a time, ensuring not a single one is packed less than perfectly.

You can get the mechs off the bases with a heavy bladed craft knife and some carefully directed brute force and ingnorace.

In fairness if you ever find yourself in an urban fight with a scout lance the Urban mech is terrifying.

Recognition Guide Vol. 19 Now Available; Multi-part Plastic Stormcrow TC and New AMA Coming Next Week

The fourth and final cycle of BattleMech Recognition Guide: ilClan kicks off today with Vol. 19, featuring the rare Iron Cheetah and a host of redesigned classics!

As a reminder, the Rec Guide series will run through Vol. 24, currently slated to come out on Friday, Dec. 24.

We’ve also got a sneak preview of an item coming out next week, so scroll down for more…

But before all that, we wanted to let you know about our next AMA session, happening Saturday, Oct. 23 at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time (GMT -5). Join Tex from the Black Pants Legion, members of WolfNet Radio, Death From Above, Arbiter Studios, CamoSpecs Online, Renegade HPG, Battle Bound, and Ray Arrastia and ask them anything about creating and sharing content for the BattleTech community.

(Please note the slight time bump here to accommodate the participants. it’s gonna be a packed house, we’ll try to keep the chaos to a minimum!)

Recognition Guide: ilClan, Vol. 19

PDF: $3.99

The march of technology across BattleTech’s eras is relentless—but some BattleMech designs never die. Each installment of this PDF-only series not only includes a brand new BattleMech or OmniMech, but also details Classic ’Mech designs from both the Inner Sphere and the Clans, now fully rebuilt with Dark Age technology (3085 and beyond).

Allowing beloved units redesigned for the BattleTech: Clan Invasion crowd funding campaign to be competitive on “modern” battlefields, this series also includes in-universe development notes, battle histories, notable pilots, and record sheets for each ’Mech. Released as a series of 24 PDF-only documents through the end of 2020 and early 2021, many ’Mechs featured in this series will be collected in print upon its completion.

Catalyst Web Store: https://store.catalystgamelabs.com/products/battletech-recognition-guide-ilclan-vol-19

DriveThruRPG: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/374037/BattleTech-Recognition-Guide-ilClan-Vol-19

Available Next Week: Multi-Part Plastic Stormcrow!



Debuting next Friday, Oct. 22 exclusively in the Catalyst Game Labs web store is the plastic, multi-part Stormcrow TC! This high-quality model allows you to build your ’Mech how you like, with many different possible poses.

We’ll have several hundred miniatures available in this first wave of release, with more Stormcrows and a restock of multi-part plastic Black Knight expected soon. We’re limiting orders to one Stormcrow per person, and they’ll go live in the web store at 2 p.m. Eastern Time (GMT -5) on Friday, Oct. 22

First seen during the battle of Tukayyid, the -TC Stormcrow offered the Clans a configuration unique to this legendary battle.

This premium variant uses new modeling techniques being employed to update all BattleMech designs. It comes unassembled and unpainted – and includes optional parts (4 arms), allowing you to decide between the -TC and the -B variants of the Stormcrow!

Supply is very limited, so orders are currently restricted to one model per person.

NOTE: This premium item is the second (of two) created as a test run to gauge the level of interest in the market for premium figures. Due to the success of the first miniature we have asked the supplier to make every effort to stock this item in more quickly and in sufficient quantity. They are already working on how to increase their production. Thank you for your patience!

Price: 24.99


Also available next week will be the Tukayyid Salvage Bags, a collection of bits from the plastic Stormcrow and Black Knight production lines. They’re perfect for modding your mini, or using as battlefield salvage or objective markers. Like the Stormcrow, they’ll be available at 2 p.m. Eastern on Friday, Oct. 22.

Production lines are far from perfect, even in the 31st century. Which is how Battle Salvage, Inc., a junior division of Kai Allard Enterprises, acquired a contract with workshops producing both the Black Knight Clanbuster and Stormcrow-TC to sweep up the cast-off pieces and parts for the first battlefield salvage kit. (Unconfirmed reports claim there may be salvaged items from other Mechs, specifically the UrbanMech and Crusader.)

*This package contains miscasts, imperfect parts, and other remnants. Modify your existing TO&E, build something completely new from scratch, or just litter the landscape with a graveyard of previous battles. Each bag comes unassembled and unpainted – and includes a random assortment of approximately 10 pieces which may include torsos, arms, legs, hands and heads.

Note: This product will be listed on an as-available basis, and relies specifically on workshop parts that failed QC inspection.

Price: 9.99

Seeing that unglued stormcrow almost makes me wish they all came that way. I've had several minis come with their arms glued in at an odd angle or bent weird, not pleasant to fix.
