We'll, it's passed the magical $1.442M mark...

That's it. It's all going to go to pot. Looks like we're only going to get wave 1, delays, radio silence and no wave 2

Tell me about it.


So, $150 is pretty much the sweet spot, is that fair to say?

While you can't buy those STL files, I believe the designs from the Mechwarrior Online game were put out for free more or less. They're extremely similar.

Oh, I know, and some are similar. Others, not so much.

Still, I like 3d printing and I'd like to show CGL that I like the new direction by being able to buy some more of their stuff.

Did not back that project but the number is still infamous to be recognized at a glance.

Hopefully getting an update and breaching 1.5m soon will keep us on track for the 2m unlock.

$300 pledge is best I think, more mechs and more swag.

Other than the "Do it Yourself" spreadsheet, has anyone posted a calculator to add up the loot yet?

I'd consider bumping up to the $300 level but I frankly doubt CGL's ability to meet these goals that they've set within any reasonable amount of time. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it took them 2+ years to deliver on all of the kickstarter components.

I meant to make them myself (thought it was clear enough from the context). I am already backing, but 3d printing is also a hobby, and a pretty fun one at that.

BTech Kickstarter Update #16 wrote:Ad Hoc Clan Star Pack

The Formation Building and Formation Building (Redux) updates have generated a combined 1,600 comments! That’s in addition to other discussions in our official forums at bg.battletech.com, Facebook groups, and more. As I mentioned in those previous posts, that level of enthusiasm and focused interaction is fantastic.

We’ve heard you regarding the ’Mechs which were ultimately voted off the DropShip. With that in mind, the following Ad Hoc Clan Star Pack will be added to the miniatures we’ll produce in plastic. As usual, this Star Pack may be selected with any Star/Lance Pack reward, and is also available as an add-on.

Kodiak

Fire Falcon

Hellion

Pack Hunter

Howler


If your favorite didn’t make the cut, never fear: ’Mechs that did not make this Kickstarter will still be fair game for redesign down the line.


YAY!

Bumped my pledge up to Star Colonel as if the double forces goal is met, then it becomes cheaper to get the Star/Lance packs that way and I get the Strana Mechty map thrown in for free.

Good to see it got back in. Squeaky wheels and grease... squeaky wheels and grease...

Unfortunately, it ended up with 4 other mechs that I have practically quantum scale levels of interest in! D'oh!

This is going to be one of those Kickstarters where I pledge enough for my "must have" sets and then have a serious think about the pledge manager.

I don't care much for the Howler or Pack Hunter either, but man, that Hellion. That's one of those Clan machines that just proves how superior they are. Something that small shouldn't be able to carry that level of firepower.

According to the latest update, now that we've hit the $1.5M (yay!), the $2.0M stretch goal will have the community "frothing with excitement".

I'm calling it now.

It's a non-sucky remake of the BT cartoon.

So who's dropping @$500 for all the dice and coins?

Coins are cool, but to me the dice are Must Haves.

Also, no T-Shirt Add On? Weird.

Well, I hope they really ARE streamlined. Just got the Shadowrun 6th World book from the same company and with the same claims... And well, it didn't exactly fill me with confidence. Not only the rules seem to be an unholy mess, maybe even messier than 5th, all the while claiming it did get a streamline... It also followed tradition, with 10 whole pages of day one errata, with anything from typos to full blown missing tables (yes, multiple).

That's a "wait at least for a third printing even if you liked the reviews" game if I ever saw one...

You can already get faction dice from Q-Workshop. Just saying...

I just spent way too long considering if I wanted to upgrade to the $300 pledge only to remember that I still haven't played battletech yet and have no reason to buy 12 lance/star packs at this time.
