Howdy all.  Sorry the last game had to be cancelled.  Hopefully we can get together this next month.

December 11 is shaping up to be a good day for a game.  Three of us are in already.  As far as to what we're playing, votes are for Classic this time so far.  I'll give it to the end of the weekend, but unless a slew of votes for Alpha Strike come in, figure on this one being Classic.  Details will be out after this weekend.

Hope everyone had a great Turkey Day!  :thumbsup:

Cheers,
Valkerie

Well, with no votes going any other way, we're playing Classic on Saturday, December 11.  Everyone bring a lance.  Details below:

Lance Composition: one mech of each weight class
BV limit: 6000 BV (Final unit BV must include the cost of skill upgrades)
Year Limit: 3080
Tech Level: Intro, Standard, Advanced (no experimental tech)
Mechs Allowed:  Canon Mechs only (no customs)
Lowest Skill Allowed:  Gunnery 2, Piloting 2
Game will be played on my new 4' x 6' neoprene hex mat and with some hex terrain as well.  I'll be at Game Empire at 10:00 that day to grab a table.

As to the game scenario, figure on a mix of objective points and points for damaging/killing mechs.

Depending on how many folks show, we may have to adjust forces a little to keep the game within a reasonable amount of time.

Send any questions my way.

Cheers,
Valkerie

Good game today.  My Loki's right torso and right arm armor was held together with bailing wire and chewing gum with just a little bit of duct tape.  One more hit on the right side and he would have lost the right side.  The other mechs had little or no damage...    Sorry no pictures, hope someone else took pictures.

So good game everyone.  Some fun times, and nothing like an Urbanmech putting a head shot into a Royal Highlander (good job Baijiu!) While it was a team game, it quickly boiled down to some one on one brawling.  Between objective points and general slaughter, 2nd Dragoon and my buddy from up north won the day over Baijiu and myself.

We’ll get something going again next month.  I would like to start a new campaign, so let me know your thoughts on that.

Till then, Merry Christmas everyone!  Pics are attached.

Cheers,
Valkerie

Happy New Year everyone!  Hope you all survived the holidays and things were good.

Looking to get the games going again.  With all the COVID stuff going on right now, I'm leaning towards a tentative date of Saturday, January 29 for the next game.  That should give us some time to see where this latest surge is headed and then plan accordingly.  Thoughts?

Next game will be Alpha Strike.

Cheers,
Valkerie

Howdy all.  Game details for the 29th below:

Year: 3078 (Word of Blake Jihad)
Factions: Devlin Stone's Coalition vs. The Word of Blake
Max Force PV: 600 (this is per side, not per player)
Max Force Unit Count: 12
Units Allowed: BattleMechs, Combat Vehicles
Lowest Unit Skill Allowed: 2
Scenario: King of the Hill

Devlin Stone's Coalition has access to these factions (from the Master Unit List): IS General, All Houses (except Liao), Mercenary, Clans Wolf, Ghost Bear, Diamond Shark, and Nova Cat.

I will be running with the Word of Blake.  Let me know what side you would like to play and I'll get all the assignments out.  At this juncture, we're at four players.

Map will be city/industrial with a big fat hill in the middle.  Send any questions my way.

Cheers,
Valkerie

Got it.  We are set to go for Friday at Game Empire.  It's going to take a bit to set up the board, so I'll be there at 10:00.  Should be rolling dice by 10:30, 10:45 at the latest.

And to anyone out there watching, you are welcome to come by and check out the action and join in, or just enjoy the view.

See ya all Friday!  :thumbsup:

Great game today and I hope everyone had a good time.  Excellent king of the hill match.  Glad to meet some new players as well.  Those of you who stopped by, we hope to see at the next one.  :thumbsup:

Pictures coming shortly.

Howdy all!  Hope the weekend is going well for everyone.

For the next group game, I'm looking at March 26 at Game Empire.  Game will be Alpha Strike, but the exact scenario will depend on how many folks are able to make it.  Map will be a city setup regardless.

Once I have a head count, I'll send the scenario out and the team info.

Looking forward to another good game!

Cheers,
Valkerie

Oof, been a bad boy and not updating this.  Back to it!

Howdy all!  Next game is going to be Saturday afternoon on July 30th.  Exact time TBD, but figure somewhere around 1:00 or 2:00 at Game Empire.  This one is going to be set in the current timeline, so get your ilClan on.

I will send out game details by the 16th.  For now, expect the OpFor to be the Lyran Commonwealth.  Player side will be a faction yet to be determined, but will likely be a mix of mercs and local forces.

Let me know if you can join in on the fun!

Cheers,
Valkerie

Howdy all.  For the July 30th Alpha Strike game we're going to keep things simple.  If you are coming, bring a couple of 150 PV lances.  Era is open.  The rest:
Tech Level:  All but Experimental
Units Allowed: Battlemechs, Combat Vehicles, Battle Armor
Skill Limit: None
Location: Game Empire, 11:00 AM

Game type will be determined on game day.  Not sure how many folks are coming yet, and we may have multiple new players this time.  Looking to make things easy as possible.  Figure on going head to head, or a simple objective game.  I will be bringing extra lances that fit the bill if anyone just wants to show up and roll dice.
Map won't be anything crazy.  Few hills and forests, with a little bit of shallow water mixed in.

Looking forward to another good game day!  :thumbsup:

Not sure yet on the 30th, but I did have another question: is anyone going to Comic-Con?  I noticed that there's going to be a group running Battletech there, at least on Thursday (the only day I have tickets for).  Also, if everything goes well with the painting phase of things, I'll be dressed as a Griffin.

Extra lances and dice will be available if anyone just wants to step in and play.

Good game today.  Only three of us  made it, but we had a good battle, and had a new player step in and join us today.  Decided on a simple objective point capture scenario with four different players fighting over it.  My whole force bit the bullet, but I did win the title of most mechs to die on the objective without capturing it.  ;D

Next month’s game will be at At Ease Games this time.  Date to be determined.  Till then, stay frosty all.  8)

Hello, my pal and I are new to the game. We were hoping we could stop by and check it out. We have some Clan minis painted up as well. Sounds like a ton of fun!
