For those of you with a freshly-minted copy of the Alpha Strike PDF, take a look at one of the thumbnail images on page 157...

Has it been said anywhere that when the limited edition to printed TRO:3145 comes out at GenCon, weither the PDF version will come out at the same time?

What limited edition? I've never heard anything that the print 3145 would have anything other than the standard TRO.

Sorry, I meant limited prelease printing of the book before the regular release gets to everyone else.

Um, sorry if this has been brought up before (and it probably has...always late to the party :-[), but just reread the write-up on ComStar in ER: 3145. And noticed something I didn't before...
Is anyone else wondering if we will see ComStar's new toys in TRO: 3145? (Supposedly a Medium and Heavy 'Mech, and a DropShip at least.)

I'm really hoping we will see Comstars new Toys, I really am. I'm really hoping they also have more than a few regiments too, enough to keep them from going the same way as the old Comguards did. Never sat well with me that the Comguards were painted with the same brush as the WoB and were forced to disband. Must have been all the white mechs.
I don't set an example for others. I make examples of them.

I was asking about that in a BattleChat a while back, and Herb stated that if there were to be any new toys for the re-formed ComGuards in 3145, they would go in the same file as the RAF (since they count, more or less, as an "associated faction").

So, I'd expect the print edition to be the best/only shot ComStar has at getting something new to play with in the Dark Age era.

Who said that, even? The question you want to ask is: "Will TR3145 be available at GenCon, and if so, will the PDF be available at the same time?" You've been here long enough to know where to ask those questions and get a proper answer.

FWIW, ER3145 lists at least two unknown ComGuard 'Mechs, one a Medium, one a Heavy. There could be more.

Now if there were, say, six of them...

And this response is constructive and helpful how, exactly?

Great wisdom, as always, Kitsune.  I'm hoping we might get something this week (TRO 3145 Clans); it seems reasonable to expect they'd want all the pdf's out before the print TRO.  Then again, that could just be my wild hope talking.  :))
Thanks,
Kamose

Is TRO Clans the last pdf? or are they planning a ComStar and a periphery one too?

Periphery was part of the Mercs TRO and Comstar should be included with the RotS (aka The Print Version of the TRO)

Ok, i caved and bought the TRO 3145 this past friday, and rumaged throught it while waiting on The Boy at his after school Bowling league... i have one question: i've noticed several designs that look suspiciously like reworked older models (The Gauntlet looks very much like a bipedalized Bushwacker, all of the Not-WoB Celestial machines)... why is their TRO entries so... lacking in obvious comparisons?

I noticed the same thing and well just thought the older mechs were inspirations

Well, the Gauntlet does look like a Bushwacker that was told to stop slouching and stand up straight...

The gauntlet is an omni bushwacker.

There are are alot of reworked designs. Alot of them are the mwda mini stats. So they have a new look and new stats but they are based off of older mechs.

the thing that dissappoints me about the Gauntlet is that I can't fit a Bushwacker's loadout on it.
