New Battletech Kickstarter

Post by Lars Porsenna »

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/45 ... n-invasion

Its for a new Clan-themed starter boxed set, with some plastic Clan mechs.

I got the new beginner's box with 2 plastic mechs. The plastic mechs this time around are better than in the last boxed set. There is also a new starter set too, with even more plastic mechs.

The stretch goals are pretty yummy. I pledged $1 but may up my pledge later... & definitely get some of the add-ons...

Brendan and I ran to historicon Sunday for some last minute shopping. Saw the Iron wind guys selling battletech. We both thought about it... but man they really have to find a better way to pull players in. Even the two of us didn’t know where to start. That two mech starter is underwhelming. Hopefully this new set helps because we would like to play a bit more.

The Game of Armored Combat is probably where you guys want to start. IIRC it retails at $60 & has a bunch of plastic mechs.
