Got the whole of February 5th cleared for Battletech.

Barring unforeseeable circumstances, me, my badly painted miniatures, and at least one friend who’s getting a crash course in the lore and rules will be there!

Really looking forward to increasing the number of tabletop games I’ve played by about 33%. ;D

HUZZAH, HUZZAH, HUZZAH!!!!

new arrivals: Blade Runner Black Lotus soundtrack, Tamar Rising hardcopy (w/map  8)), 30 minute model (Gundam store)   :D

Sorry for the late response, may I suggest Axis & Allies (forgot the build points)

on a related note, the Normandy Beach map set DID survive the sacking of my storage unit.  :thumbsup:

A&A works for me. 200 points? Since you and I are the only one with a collection likely to show up, that'll give us enough for other players to join in.

I'm finally seeing some light and progress on the end of my tunnels.
My wife switched jobs, now she's going to be on a more typical Monday through Friday set up, meaning she has weekends. Which means I can probably get a few Sundays where I'm not holding down the house with kiddo.

Yes one day he'll need to meet the crazy uncles (you all) but at 7 and energetic and grabby at minis I'm all no no no not yet bucko.
Stone wasn't cryo frozen. He just got stuck in a freezer Hans Moleman style and we felt bad about it. So we made up this lie.

Just warn us beforehand, and we can have a plastics-only day. :)

Looking forward to seeing you at the games again!

Would be nice to have the old crew together. Or at least what *I* think of as the old crew. Still need to do the Tanksgiving game as well.

No idea if Sunday will work for me, but likely not.

Just a heads up for the BattleTech: Succession Wars this weekend at Texas Toy Soldier.

While I am, at this time, still planning on running this event, I will be keeping a close eye on the weather and driving conditions.
Depending on how things shape up, for safety, I may cancel the event and reschedule it for our March Battletech event.

Stay safe, stay warm.

Cidayrbourne, will it be a problem if players have to bow out early?  The weather has thrown a kink into some family travel plans.  I’ll probably need to bail at about 1530.

If you have to, you have to. We can always adapt. Worst case, I can play as a ringer. Being an introductory event for many players, I was not planning on playing, to be available to help.

https://bg.battletech.com/forums/fan-articles/recognition-guide-mech-reviews-alpha-strike-edition/.

This guy's reviewing every mech released in the Recognition Guides, rating them based on their performance in Alpha Strike. It's all very subjective, but also consistent and a good read overall.

By the afternoon/evening, the roads looked fairly clear. While there is some concern with possible freezing and icy overnight, right now, everything appears to be good.

I will take a look in the morning, and say something if I have concerns for safety. Otherwise, for now, the Fourth Succession War is still on.

Thanks for organizing last Saturday’s 4th SW event!  Had a blast even though I could only stick around for one game (and had to play Capellan  ;D).

That was my first time playing in the bustle of a game store as opposed to online in Megamek.  Really a night and day difference in the experience!  I think I was only saved from a rout by some lucky rolls.  Puts me in mind of Han Solo’s line: “Good against remotes is one thing.  Good against the living?  It’s something else.”

Can hardly wait for the chance to play again!

I need to make an appearance at least so you know I'm alive.
The Patton of wargame design, the Berg himself, is being immortally quoted elsewhere.

Newly returned to dfw. Sold all my tabletop stuff years ago.

But I went ham at Gen X today and picked up a fair few lance\star boxes and some paint. Now I just need to work on getting Sunday's off so I can get some gaming in.

I have my Battletech gear in the car, but if it looks like just you and me I can toss in the Duke and /or my Ogre stuff.

For those that remember, I found a video of GenCon back when the Blakist secrets book was debuted.

I think one of the guys raising his fist in the background was me.  ;D

If anyone is interested in an Alpha Strike game I will be hosting a scenario I have written this Sunday at GenX in my capacity as a demo agent.

Below is the post from FB since I know you guys coordinate here instead.

A new custom written scenario using the Alpha Strike ruleset for 3D Terrain.
Models, stat cards, terrain, rules, and dice will be provided to play.
Just bring yourself and be ready to have a good time. No previous game experience necessary. Game will likely run 3-4 hours.
At the end there will be a giveaway of a custom made Battletech themed dice box.
