Nice to see the Wave 2 minis on the march, a broader shot would be nice.  I understand why they are not painted, hopefully others who it casually catches their eye understand.

To which I'd add, while it's fun to see the devs and management talk about what's coming out, for BattleTech at least there are no Great Revelations nor any Shocking Announcements at this time. The Coming Releases page has basically everything that we're able to talk about publicly at this time.

Awwwww! But how am I supposed to scream like a little girl at a BTS concert and throw my boxers at Ray if he isn’t trapped in one of those little conference rooms!

This is the txt version rather than the caffeinated YouTube version, but this is what I came across when hitting up the GenCon booth. I have no idea what is Wave 1, 2, etc., so I'll just post product names (at least from what I can remember from memory).

Force Packs: Clan Command and Heavy Striker, IS Command and Battle
IWM: only one I saw was a Mad Cat, but I also didn't look too hard.

Other stuff:
--Everything nckestrel/Brent Evans posted
--An interesting new box set of 200+ standees to go with the Clan invasion box set (think it was called Clan Invasion: Reinforcements. Grognards can call it BT: Reinforcements 3)
--lots of cool dice sets for Clans, Mercs, etc.
--lots more print fiction (mostly paperback; I think all the hardcover is in the pic nckestrel posted)
--multiple nice map sets

Do they have any new faction dice?  Specifically, I'm looking for the Magistracy of Canopus.

It looks to be 8 standard map sheets, so it looks like I won't be getting one. The biggest table any of us have can only handle 6 maps (or 3 standard sized neoprenes).

Couple other things I noticed: a hexless alpha strike battle mat (normal size) and they had baggies with plastic bits they were calling salvage for $10.
