So, unless they change my schedule for the third time this week, I have this and next Sunday off. I'll try to read the gaslands rulebook, but I'll need to borrow cars from someone since I haven't played it. I'll bring the stuff we talked about last time as well, including some goodies I had printed for you guys. Also, if someone has a laptop, it might not be a bad idea to bring flash and portable hard drives 8)

Hey guys, thanks for the birthday game this past Sunday.

Thanks also to Evan for the Ogre game and the mech mini. Today, I went to Hobby Lobby to find a carry-case for it and the re-enforcement pack I have. While there, I also found a 1/144th scale model kit of the Gouf Custom from "08th MS Team" series.  :thumbsup: (another kit to build)

so current forces: (Zion) Gouf Custom, -06 Zaku, (x2) Wappas, (x2) infantry figures;
                           (Feds) -79 [G] Ez-8, -79 [G] Ground Type, -79 [G] (GT) with optional head and extra weapons,
                                     (x2) 615 MB Tanks, (x2) Blood Hounds (1 command, 1 cargo), (x8) infantry figures

Reposting here, so everybody has the rules available. I'm working on trees right now, and I lucked out and found a set of trees that should be good.

Battletech grinder and swap meet.

Have extra stuff from your clan invasion kickstarter? Too many metal miniatures? Come join the DFW mechwarriors guild for a mech grinder and swap meet this October 10th.

Location: Generation X comics and games, 3504 Harwood Rd, Bedford, 76021.

Time: 12pm, Sunday, October 10th.

Rules:
- Total warfare with some additions from tac ops.
- Battletech Initiative deck
- One mech from each weight class.
 - No BV, tech, faction or tonnage limit. Cannon mechs only
 - you can bring an extra set of four mechs just in-case you lose your starting roster.

Special note: The store is nice enough to put up with us, so please consider a purchase while you are there. They have some Battletech product alongside other merch, so factor that in for any trades you may do.

Thanks for the game.  Learned a whole lot on how CBT works.  Any weeknights coming up that anyone would be up for another game?

Weekdays are usually completely out for me at least, but maybe someone else will be available sometime. :)

I've worked with Brian at Texas Toy Soldier. We're going to be Tuesday Night Battletech every week. We started last week.

For now, it's for demos of Classic and Alpha Strike, and free play, knowing that there will be other players there. After the first of the year, when new people have had a chance to get more games under their belt, we're going to start doing organized events.

I do plan on making it out there occasionally, swung by the other Saturday when y'all were playing.  If anybody else in mid-cities would like to carpool over to TTS I don't mind driving.

How do folks feel about Pirates this Sunday? I can bring several fleets for folks to choose from.

HUZZAH!   

My TC Stormcrow came in today.

I'm good for just about anything (except X-wing, that's still a mess)

How about that Machine Gun game I was talking about earlier?

Here's how it works:

Any unit we normally allow is allowed, provided one of the following is true:
1: It mounts at least four machine guns, by which I mean Machine Guns, Light Machine Guns, or Heavy Machine Guns.
OR
2: The machine guns it does mount add up to at least 1/3rd of the unit's maximum non-melee damage. (Think original Locusts, Stingers, etc)
OR
3: It is an infantry unit(conventional OR battle armor) carrying at least one machine gun.

Because this fight might drag compared to our normal games, let's slim things down a bit, for a max of 4,000 BV.

Does this sound fun?

Hint: While they can be found everywhere, there are three categories that are particularly good when looking for lots of machine guns. IndustrialMech MODs, Battle Armor, and Clan OmniMechs. :)

I am having trouble locating the TRO that has the "big" list of battle armor.

I am also having trouble putting the Stormcrow together; I can't seem to find a glue that ACTUALLY WORKS. :ticked:

The vast majority of battle armor record sheets will be in 3058(Clans) or 3075, unless they're from a more recent TRO.

Don't forget, looking up any unit in the MUL will tell you which which TRO or other product it's featured in, and which one the record sheet is in. :thumbsup:

WHOA!

Just checked the CGL website. Looks like the Urbies are sold out as well as the star packs. Only the Elementals and "blind draw" Legends salvage packs are available.

(and of course, the Urbie plushie  :thumbsup:)

Sorry for the late reply.

I can be at Gen X at noon if need be. What should I bring?

(I'll throw in Ogre just in case)
