Hoping to have more. Looking forward to next Sunday's game. If there's a large enough turnout might start doing this more often.

I used to go to Articon out there at the Caisson Rec center decades ago. We played at Gameshack there on north Ft Sill Blvd. This was like 93-96ish.

I may have another old friend that played in highschool talked into coming by.

Awesome. The more the merrier. Every time I've stopped by Carolina Comics there's been some one different saying "you're running a Battletech game?" and then getting a nostalgic look in their eyes. So I'm cautiously optimistic for a good turn out.

Hope it works out for you!  I'm from Clinton (hour north, give or take a few minutes) and played ball in Lawton/Altus a few times in high school;  never knew there was much of anything down there.  Did the OKC scene for a bit but am now down in DFW.  Good luck!

That would be amazing. I keep meaning to make a trip down to Dallas for one of the games down there but never seem to make it.

It would probably have to be something like the 2009 GarageCon or everyone meet up at SoonerCon or TexiCon (OKC or Ft Worth respectively.)  I love me some BattleTech, but I don't even drive down to Arlington (about an hour plus for me from where I live in Prosper TX) as the drive isn't worth the time I get to actually play.  A big planned event?  Yes, I'd easily be more tempted!

Back in 2009 GarageCon was held in an events center in Plano with Charlie Tang and William Pennington running several events as well as a painting contest and we played until eight or nine with a start time of nine or ten in the morning IIRC.  The WoB vs DCMS/Nova Kittens vs Ghost Bears was a very memorable game for me  :D

Those are the worst type of deer. Glad to hear you'll be there. Also, Carolina Comics is now stocking several more books, miniatures and hex packs!

Have not yet decided point values, but Faithless has volunteered to do a Binary or Trinary of Clan Jade Falcons vs some of my WOB Shadow Division forces. I may be also designing a few other armies for other players/scenarios etc. I'll update more as I drill down on the specifics. Any tips/suggestions/questions are always welcome.

I will see if I have the proper mechs to represent one of the premade house units in alpha strike as well.  If Dave is able to play I can put together sheets for his Clan Wolf star I just finished.

225 points per army, with a cap on units of around 12-15. Sounds reasonable. I think. What do I know, I enjoy a faction that venerates toasters.

I'll be providing House Liao, Steiner, Mario and Davion forces for people to use that don't have any forces ready. I may be able to cobble together a pirate force or two as well.

Event has been postponed until a later date due to inclement weather. I'll let everyone know the new date when I get a chance to schedule it.

Once it is rescheduled I will see if I can attend. I will try to have more tea light smoke markers made too. I ran out of hot glue after about 2 when I was at my mom's.

Sorry for the short notice. Sunday, March 9th, 1-6 PM. 50006000BV per person, objective-based game. Not giving any details on the objective(s) though. It'll be a surprise.
