Not true- where is the Ostwar?!

Devlin Stone converted it into the Ostpeace IndustrialMech. It looked really stupid and they are currently working on changing it back...

is that the Ost-Scout in the back?  Cool.  Reminds me of a grown up and mature Fireball (which looks like an Urbie put with the polar opposite mission profile)

Essentially all the classic machines that appeared in previous issues of technical readouts 3025/3039s have been revamped except for maybe the LAMs visually.

The Ostscout had an IWM mini done several years ago. It was in CM: Mercs ~2015

Yes.  I don't know if they've appeared anywhere official yet, but yes, they've been redesigned.  The Vindicator is MWO-like except with more conventional legs.  The Assassin is now pretty clear about having a front-mounted cockpit with a top-mounted electronics hump that does not look like a fighter jet canopy.

Hi everyone, wonder if you can help, I got a force pack from my FLGS and wanted to download the record sheets, but I can't remember where I saw them, thought I'd downloaded them all, it appears not :D I know there's a page on the catalyst store, but I can't find it

Is anyone else still missing their pledges? I still haven't seen anything: I'm in Australia, and our distributor has a reputation for subpar service... but I'm starting to get pretty frustrated that there's no indication when anything might arrive. I understand I was in "wave 2.5" but this was supposed to be in my hands before the Christmas holiday, according to the email from Catalyst. ):

I saw this on Facebook today:

"Hi,

We have shipped everything to ShipQuest EU to get them  out to our customers. They were supposed to start shipping in November,  but, honestly, with the holidays and all of the holds up with global  shipping, I don't know how much they got done. The last email I have  states that they are hoping to finish in February."

So I guess CGL has already shipped missing items to the distributors but the global shipping problems have made it difficult for the regional distributors to fix this. Regardless, CGL should probably make an announcement about this so that people are aware that their stuff is on its way.

At this point, should we just accept we're never seeing anything for the dice? Even if they DO finally award CGL store credit, the shipping costs make it less than ideal for those of us overseas.

RS WD ... very cool! thanks all who put that together!

[edit: Archer w/Clan tech] now call me an armchair mechwarrior, but I think I would have upped the Streaks to 6's and dropped the PL to ERs.  25 rounds of Streak ammo sounds high ... just seems like it won't get used up in a standard battle (longer haul campaign however, different story).

4/6/4 is not fast enough to avoid lights, the pulses help a lot. Plus it needs to be WYSIWYG for the BJ-2, can’t do to much there

They're looking to establish a EU hub. The original deal with a distributor as supposed to launch in October/November, but it fell through and they're looking for someone new so the whole thing got postponed.

If I'm saying anything incorrect, please advise.

Yeah, offering the record sheets as free downloads is a really, really, really excellent move.

I pledged through the CrowdOx site and received an email from Quartremaster Logistics on 01/21 to confirm my address, so hopefully everything will be on its way to me soon.  :D

One kind of odd thing is I got an email today from Rather Dashing Games saying they’re shipping me “some items from the Clan Invasion Kickstarter I never received”. I’ve never heard of this company before or heard of their involvement with the KS, does anyone know what is coming from them vs QL?  ???

Right, but at the same time its not to far of a stretch or eye-squint to justify a 6 for a 4.  I mean if those arm lasers could pass for a M PL, ML, ER ML, any SL, any LL.  No complaining here, just wistful thinking.  Love it either way.

There are a couple of Box sets that I havent seen in general release. From FLGS to online mega stores...all are out of stock. Is there any word of when they will be released??

Which box sets are you talking about?  Everything from the KS has been released for general distribution at this point and have had multiple production runs.  You just have to keep your eyes open because some things sell out quickly.

Depends on the distributor.  My local brick and mortar store is getting the Clan Support Star and Inner Sphere Urban lance this week, and still has yet to see the Clan Ad Hoc Star, Inner Sphere Support Lance, or Comstar Battle Level II become available.
