    Not true. A handful have sold on eBay in the last couple weeks, ranging from $60 to $90 a pop.

    Those valuations are making it really hard to justify holding onto mine.

    Oh shit are they really selling for that much?

    I'm either going to sell mine then, or I'm willing to trade it for some stompybois.

    Edit: Added a category for trading the Shilone to the sheet.

    So factoring in my Salvage Boxes and trade with Hydro, that leaves me with these Clan mechs still available to trade:

    - 2x Mist Lynx
    - Ice Ferret
    - Viper
    - Adder
    - Executioner
    - Grendel
    - Nova
    - Piranha
    - Horned Owl

    And I think at this point my want list (for Clan mechs at least) is probably in order of priority/want here:

    - Mad Dog
    - Linebacker
    - Warhawk
    - Crossbow
    - Kingfisher

    On the Inner Sphere/Comstar side my list is just a Griffin and maybe a Mongoose?

    Might just be me but the poses look identical to the .stls that were ripped from MWO and put out by Syllogy a while back? Pretty certain I have a 3d printed Atlas that looks exactly the same. Edit- looks like it's pretty much just the Atlas and Bushwhacker. Black Knight is similar but slightly different.

    But now I want to print plates full of 25mm minis.

    You're probably not wrong. The Syllogy MWO models have gotten a ton of use out in the community, and have been used as the basis for kitbashes and alt sculpts and the like. That, and the base MWO models are ubiquitous at this point, so it's definitely one or the other.

    Random trivia update.

    Battletech, the tabletop miniatures wargame, exists within the Battletech universe.

    So the question is- Are you simply playing through the battles of the Fourth Succession War leading a Davion force to victory or are you a Capellan nerd roleplaying as a FedSuns General because the bad guys are always cool?

    edit- it also means that this is within the possibility of canon.

    edit 2- Oh if you enjoy the Battletech Audiobooks you may hear a familiar voice soon. It seems student vouchers are not enough to cover booze expenses.

    As promised, shots on the Z scale table:

    Stills from a recently discovered training simulation carried out by Comstar forces on the eve of Operation Bulldog, circa 3059:

    A ComStar Level II is baited into an ambush by a lone Hunchback IIC

    With the arrival of Wave 2, and nearing the tail end (spoiler: it's a remarkably long tail) of the task, Project Build All The Things takes a....kitbashed turn.

    On the left, a pristine SLDF King Crab.

    On the right, slightly unfinished and cobbled from all sorts of parts, a King Crab.

    While most may choose to pilot the former, I believe in the build of the latter for the simple fact it could torso twist more than five degrees off center.

    Truly, a build of Periphery inspiration.

    These are all awesome. #1 and #3 with the hatchetmen my favorites of this bunch. Such good storytelling going on.

    Reminds me of a scenario in the old battleforce book. Basically it's you vs your opponent with salvage markers scattered on the map. You gotta fight to collect the most.

    Turns out a couple centuries ago the SLDF fought a battle in a valley on some backwater Periphery world. A stray shot destroyed a large dam and flooded the entire place under a couple hundred meters of water and mud. Everything was lost. Fast forward to present and that lake has dried up considerably and some random farmer rediscovered the battle site. Star League era mechs ripe for the taking! Sure they're a bit water logged and still buried in mud, but easy pickings otherwise!

    Get in, secure the area and defend our salvage team.

    Though we're not going to be the only crew out there. That damn farmer told everyone from here to Terra about it.

    Finally consolidated my Wave 1 and Wave 2 boxes together so I can store them easier.

    Somehow I wound up getting two Mercenaries II pilot decks.

    During Wave One (or those with Single-Wave shipping) we produced and delivered three MechWarrior Pilot Decks:

    Champions of the Inner Sphere I
    Mercenaries of the Inner Sphere II
    Warriors of Kerensky I

    As part of Wave Two we were supposed to produce the following decks:

    Battle of Tukayyid
    Mercenaries of the Inner Sphere I
    Warriors of Kerensky II

    What no one foresaw was how insanely complicated these decks would be to produce. Custom art, based on backer photos or description. Rendering of the art for the units with appropriate colors. Collation. Coordination. We stressed out our pool of authors, artists and fact checkers; just about killed out Art Director who still rolls into a fetal position any time we bring up doing new custom-art card decks.

    In the end, with the clock bearing down on us and no leeway from our factory (at that time) for error, we chose to focus our efforts on the miniatures, maps, plushies, and so on. So, instead of three decks, we took the best of what we had ready and produced one new deck: Heroes of the Clan Invasion.

    Everyone who purchased any of those decks will receive a credit in the coming weeks. ALSO, you should receive a free copy of Heroes as our way of making up for any inconvenience.

    As with the faction dice, above, we hope to revisit these decks in the future.

    I think everyone just got a 2nd copy of Mercs II instead. Which I'm extremely annoyed by. They made three decks for wave one yet somehow "no one foresaw was how insanely complicated these decks would be to produce" when it came time for wave two, so instead of warning us they just changed it on the fly.

    Going into the same pile as Card #65 of the Alpha Strike Lance Pack cards. There were 8 Lance Packs with 8 cards apiece totaling 64, but they're all labelled as "n/65".
