Hey Gents,

It's Corey. Longtime no see.

Finally at a point in which I have time and money to start playing Battletech again. I was wondering where we are meeting up these days. I am in Denton still, but I don't mind driving for a game a couple times a month. Alternatively, if anyone is up my way I would love to found a sub-group up here for us to meet up.

I will be at Gen X Sunday; I'll bring some mechs and sheets. I am good for playing other games as well.

Hey dude, been a while indeed :)

Not gonna make it tomorrow. Ice T and I were talking about a Battletech scenario for next week using our box sets. We can figure it out later on though.

OH GOOD.....I can leave my CBT gear in the car. Sammy and I played an A&A air combat scenario today. Yamato's transport survived; so did the Rookie Zero pilot in a crippled plane  :thumbsup:...…….(promotion)

Here is the initial Japanese setup and endgame.
The Patton of wargame design, the Berg himself, is being immortally quoted elsewhere.

The greatest blame does not lie with the oppressors.  It belongs to the silent majority.

The idea for next week is that we will only need my and whistler's AGoAC boxes. Since we usually have four players, that'll give us a lance per player. The idea is to play with quirks and as many TacOps rules as we can.

Just read through Turning Points: Orbisonia  :yikes:   Talk about BRUTAL; linked scenarios with no repairs for any units that are carried over; new units take damage in all locations (except head) ranging from 1/5 to 2/3 initial rating.

I plan to be at Gen X. I still have my CBT gear in the car, but I was also going to bring "The Duke" (Lord's Legacy edition) as an option.

Thoughts for this Sunday? I'll bring a Battletech scenario, but it's a small one, best for just two players.

Do the SPAs in Alpha Strike operate the same way in regular play?  I ask because the "Jumping Jack" ability in AS gives a ' -1 to-hit modifier' for any weapon attack when using jumping movement, not reduce the jump move modifier from +3 to +1.

They are different sometimes, probably to better suit the two rulesets.

Well, due to the constant flux of my job I haven't been able to get a weekend off to head down to GenX.

However, I mentioned Battletech to one of the cooks working for me and he sounded interested. So yesterday I scheduled both of us off so I could show him a game. We wanted to go big and I set up an epic 17k BV vs 17k BV clash. Word of Blake's 36th Division vs my house brew DCMS command.

https://imgur.com/a/XTytF3U <<<< link to pictures from the game

The game was epic as Battletech usually it. I was testing an objective system I have been working on for some time now. As well as porting command special rules from the old field manuals and new combat manuals into easy to use cards. It was really fun to face off with two very distinct forces and play a game that I savaged the Word of Blake, but overall they won after achieving more objectives than I did.

Hopefully I will get to show y'all the system I created one day. Until then I will keep recruiting more BT fans.

Whistler you will be happy to know he is pledging loyalty to the Lyrans. I showed him their lore and tactics. He is sold. Damn social generals.

We're playing a big X-Wing game. Sevengates and Whistler are each bringing Resistance units, and I'm going to bring a double-sized Imperial group to face them.

There was a mix-up and someone has my AGoAC rulebook, right? Could you bring it tomorrow if possible, please?
