Yes, the New Release Discussion thread is extending here. What's not going to extend is the discussion of the extinct mechs. Just don't. Seriously.

Yes, and i'll keep making noise about them every now and then until they get announced or we get told "not happening, not now, not ever".

TROs without record sheets are borderline useless, especially if there's variants around. I mean, sure, fluff and art's fun, but hard to play with just those.

Honestly, i'll settle for official stats somewhere, i can fill record sheets manually on paper if necessary, just need stats for that.

Not gonna buy another TRO without record sheets or stats for all variants.

IWM has four of the 3150 NTNU record sheets (Pendragon PDG-3R, Thor II E, Thunderbolt IIC 2, and Vixen 6) available for download in their Downloads section.

I'd really like to see the full RS 3150 NTNU release too.  (If nothing else, so I can use more of my cache of plastic Shoguns...)

Yeah, the last time I remember someone shaking that tree we got a few RS dumped but I know I saw comments questioning their 'officialness' at the time.  I still want the Clan ERLL Juliano . . .

Sartis, I think the mentioned ebook & PoD for Anthology 6 also counts.

Do you also have a list of the new positioned fiction with Kickstarter?

New sheets?  Going to have to grab those to go with my Orion C and others that were leaked.

I've got...

Proliferation Cycle 1-6 (BC stories)
Honor and Glory I-IV (Based on Backers' Characters, unwritten)
Founding of the Clans I-III (III, unwritten)
Den of Wolves (WD Origin Story, unwritten)

and the MW: Legends book but that's more like the 25th anni art book

Yeah, not counting the BC stories . . . Founding the Clans 1 & 2 are written, 2 was just never released.  I would have to dig but I want to say . . . 2?  Was set for Dec 2019?  Dragoons origin story was Coleman/Stackpole and I figure that is 2 years out at least if nothing has been done.

Outside of Prolif Cycle, all of that was to be general release IIRC.

With all of the material we already have on the Dragoons the writing of the book may take less than 6 months if they have no other projects they are currently working on.

Technical Readout: Clan Invasion is now available in print and PDF formats through the Catalyst Game Labs store!

INVADERS FROM BEYOND 

On 27 September 3048, the ComStar Explorer Corps JumpShip Outbound Light stumbled onto the Clan Homeworlds, setting in motion a massive invasion of the Inner Sphere by the Clans. At first sweeping all before them with their advanced technologies, the Clans met defeat at the Battle of Tukayyid and were stymied by a 15-year truce. With the clock ticking, the Inner Sphere’s elite took the battle directly to the Clan Homeworlds. There, the destruction of Clan Smoke Jaguar and the defeat of the Clans in the Great Refusal ended the invasion.

In their absence, political machinations continued across the Inner Sphere. As the victorious forces returned home, the mighty Federated Commonwealth tore itself apart in a titanic Civil War spanning a thousand light years as Houses Davion and Steiner pitted brother against sister. These large-scale conflicts accelerated technical advancements, as a new generation of BattleMechs and weapons appeared on a hundred worlds of conflict.

Technical Readout: Clan Invasion builds on Technical Readout: Succession Wars with ’Mechs previously found in Technical Readout: 3050 Upgrade, Technical Readout: 3055 Upgrade, Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade, Technical Readout: 3060, and Technical Readout: 3067. This volume features some of the most common ’Mechs from the Clan Invasion and Civil War Eras, each illustrated in detail and accompanied by a description of its history, capabilities, and game stats, along with their most famous pilots.

Yup, that's the back cover copy. (Easier to c&p than try to rewrite it all in my own words!)

I think its good simply b/c if it is on the shelf, or someone is browsing the listed TROs trying to figure out which one to get its going to indicate Clan Invasion is the best choice for their next step- "I can get the mechs from 5 TROs?  What a deal!"

yeah, that's fair.

i think the Prototypes Unabridged volume was announced in 2013. still waiting on that one too.

Honestly Prototype Unabridged and RS 3150 NTNU are the two things I wish they would release out of everything they've announced. (Even more than ilClan.)

Seconded! And they need to fold all the missing record sheets from the year of the Star League products into Prototypes (It will be a bit on the thin side anyway).

assuming it's a thing, a while. after he's done the concept art he or someone else would have to do TRO quality art. there's going to be some writing as well as some of those clan second line units haven't gotten a write up since the original tro 3055. editing, fact checking, layout, printing. put it on a boat. Q4 2020 at the absolute earliest based on all the other stuff they got going on?

If it's not a state secret how can we get the Orion C and an other "leaked" sheets?
