Warm ginger ale + vodka just sounds like trolling.

So you've never heard of a Moscow Mule?

I work at Rocket Fizz, a candy store that serves genuine cane sugar, non-retro, soda pop from almost every brand known to man in the free world.

Mexican Cola = Throwback Real Sugar Coca-Cola and Pepsi ( respectfully )

Moscow Mule = ( not kidding ! ) ******'N Bull Ginger Beer ( some say Ale, but it's made just like Beer - fermented ) [ We sell the original bottle, not cans... ]

A Moscow mule needs lime juice (and ice!) to be worthy of the name, imo.  It’s in the buck family of drinks: liquor, citrus juice, sweetener, soda.  Without the lime juice it’s just ginger beer that’s been watered down, in terms of flavor and carbonation, but now with alcohol.

=== MODERATOR DISCUSSION ===

CGL was running a Kickstarter for Clan Invasion miniatures, not mixed drinks.  Get back on topic.

Speaking of which, I'm thinking we should be hearing some delivery estimates soon.  As in, we should get some kind of announcement, not product being delivered.  :)

Looking forward to painting up a Centurion and Enforcer for my Davion Guards formation!

So are the Wave 2 mechs currently(?) on the high seas just for Kickstarter backers or will some of that batch make it into retail stores?

They said in the last update just waiting on 4 boats to go out. Last one should leave today.

This is all Kickstarter stuff.  Unless stores bought from the Kickstarter directly they probably won't be getting any of Wave 2's stuff in until the fall or end of summer.

The container ships are definitely not going to get hit by the Chinese rocket falling out of orbit, right?

I'd be more worried for the port than the ships.

But yes, can't wait for more mech goodness.

Guys, the worst the bits of the rocket that survive re-entry can do will be equivalent to one light airplane crash, scattered over potentially 100km. The ship will be fine. Containers? Mebbe.

Wondering if CGL any closer at all on Battle of Tukayyid DL codes for non-Star Captains?

I kinda had my hopes raised when they responded to my Feb 15th email to the CGL store on May 1st asking if I still needed it, but nothing since I responded same day :(

You could say it's doing great considering the amount of globe spanning BS that they had to push through.

A couple of other Kickstarters I backed were trying to get stuff out of China before New Year and were unsuccessful.  Of them only Wave 1 of Nemesis Lockdown has been confirmed to have gotten out of the country - apparently there's a shortage of available containers even before the Suez lockjam. 

I should have my bits in a couple of days, it's taken about six weeks to get from leaving China to being handed to the courier. Presumably we'll see a similar timeline for the BattleTech stuff when it's confirmed on the way.
