Not sure what we have planned this weekend, but I will suggest you track down all of your loose Hot Wheels, Matchbox, and other assorted vehicles. Terence has an AWESOME game called Gaslands. Think Mad Maxx custom rides.  :thumbsup:

Stuff. And things.

I genuinely have no idea if I'll make it this Sunday. On the other hand, I've managed to pick up enough CAVs for some decent-sized games if folks are interested in that. Also have Post Captain, an Age of Sail ruleset that's roughly Battletech-level in complexity, but uses movement templates to take a lot of the work and confusion out of wind-based movement.

Alright, I need to get up and look for them or I'll fall asleep in my reclining chair.

How do you guys feel about Alpha Strike this weekend? I've got a 500-point force I'd like to try out.

Do you think you could bring your metal IS mechs box, please? I'm running a different faction than usual, and am certain you've got the mechs I'm missing. :)

What do we normally play with, 300pts? How big is the force, because it sounds like a big game. By no means impossible but maybe just 500 per side, your force vs the rest?

But yeah I'm down for some Alpha Strike :D. I haven't gotten my box yet, still waiting for it to get into the store :/

Our usual games are 400 points. This one isn't VERY big, at least not by my standards.

Any BV that's been settled on or should I build an army there?

My wargaming role will be the Sick Man of Irving, since Sick Man of Europe was taken by the Ottoman Empire.  See you next week.

My PM was wrong. customerservice@catalystgamelabs.com is the correct one to send to if a box set has a damaged mini.
