    Damn, they are perfect villains and they have more decal support than the Rasalhaguans, and their color scheme is easier.

    But then there might come a day that I have to actually play the bastards. :?

    Also I'm considering getting shark teeth for the Oosik Catapult, because drunken mercs. Damn these decals.

    They also have the Kentares flag, which I'll have to research more since you folks mentioned it.

    Alpha strike question:

    Assuming 2 mechs are exchanging fire.

    Are the terrain to hit modifiers the same for incoming and out going fire? Even if at the edge of the woods? Same with partial cover?

    +1 for woods for standing in or intervening when attacking
    +1 for shooting at a target with partial cover. If you have partial cover you don't get a penalty for shooting at something that doesnt

    The Sword of Light regiments are the main Heels and Jobbers for the Draconis Combine.

    Main exceptions I think are 1st and 5th (Sorensen’s Sabre’s parent unit) who tend more toward being Faces (in the event that the Genyosha & Ryuken are too busy or didn’t exist yet).

    So I had this thought, but hadn't gotten around to it yet, then saw it on Reddit:

    Holy fuckballs. I mean, I intuitively knew the new AWS was Chonky, but damn.

    Now the scale modeler part of me is screaming inside, because I can't reconcile which size is right anymore. So I need to go back to burying that part of me in model terrain work to make it feel better.

    Actually, that's close to the scheme I would go with if I made them those Kavalliers or whatever!

    Maybe I'll make a lance of 2nd Swords and a lance of Rasalhaguans and call it a day.

    @Nips @DaMoonRulz If you ran a game of Alpha Strike on Tabletop Simulator like HOTAC would you have each player be one mech in the lance, or give each player their own lance for a campaign?

    Based on their finish I think you'd be good to go with a fine wet erase marker, like a Staedtler.

    Edit: I tested with a small dry-erase marker, a thin Staedtler Lumocolor wet-erase, and a thicker Expo Visa-Vis wet-erase. The dry erase left more residue when I erased them one by one. The finish is cardstockier than I remembered, so you could always just sleeve the cards and draw on them with anything you want. I think I'll do that.

    Just do what I do:

    Always print off cards from the MUL, and never use the nice glossy color ones I bought, even though I've bought like four different packs of the things.

    I have always based my miniatures before painting. Doing it after is, like, a Pro-grade skill that I haven't worked myself up to yet.

    Also, for figs like the IK minis, that lets me anchor them soundly to the base so I know they won't be top-heavy versus the base size or loosely-connected or something.

    Like that Kodiak I just posted; that sucker's just about welded to that base, and it's on a larger-than-normal hex. I'd hate to have to figure that out after the paint's on.

    Hooked my young Mechwarriors with a game of Alpha strike. Basically gave them the start to Crescent Hawks, they are in the training school, little do they know the clans are coming to ruin their day.

    The Locust survived way longer than I thought it would, that +3 to hit is nice. But... when their Thunderbolt punched it in half was when their light switch turn on. Next round they took down the opposing Catapult with a 12 roll and an ammo explosion. Next mission is lights taking down an assault.

    It is fun when the kids are built in Battletech buddies!

    I’ll admit that I’ve always wanted to sit down and read through that scenario pack for the alternate history Star League

    The one where Kerensky sticks around? It's pretty neat, and not super long to get through. It's also cool to see how they handle the tech curve; IIRC things don't necessarily reach Clantech levels, but stuff that naturally came out of IS tech advances (RACs, MRMs) show up when they do in the main timeline.

    Iirc he gets assassinated before the exodus happens but yeah, the SLDF never leaves. Mostly because I keep hearing about how certain character show up in alt universe interpretations (like Ulric Kerensky).
    Also the fridge horror moment when you realize the PCs may have jumpstarted Clan and Omni tech depending on what mechs they brought back with them.

    Wait, what is this you speak of? Is it something I can go read now? Or purchase?

    Not sure how you folks feel about linking third party stores, but is this thing cute or what?!

    Also linking the alternate history or far future texts...do people mostly just ignore the Dark Ages stuff that happened after the Jihad and stick with Battletech's version of Game of Thrones Season Four? Or is it because the Dark Age look and mechs are pretty far outside what the majority are into?

    So do we think there's any chance they'll release the 3d printing templates for any of the 'mechs? Or is there a chance folks with 3d scanners may scan them in and upload them somewhere? Random thought.
