Anyone with a beemer doesn't count due to insider connections.  Therefore I'm first.

Dear friends, while we are willing to accept typical forum silliness, like snagging the first post in a new thread, you are rapidly approaching a point that will test the limits of Rule 8's "the odd frivolous post".

There was a little momentum on the mini-PDFs in the late spring, but I think it was consumed by getting physical products ready for con season. It's on my list to inquire about once the GenCon hangover is past.

What about the first mini preview of the upcoming?

Not sure what you mean? The upcoming...box sets? We posted some close-up photos on Monday, you can check them out here.

Is there any way to get a shot of the 'Finished' Minis?

i.e. It looks like some of these are multi part minis assembled and glued to base. What I am curious about, is are these minis single cast molds? or were they multi-part casts that are then assembled before putting into the box?

Think previous Box Sets BATTLEMASTER versus ATLAS.

Single-cast molds, as far as I know. These are the production minis.

Ah, okay. I understand, he was asking about a "mini-preview" i.e. some teasers, not "a preview of minis."

Still working on that. I need to give Monday's news some time to breathe, and there may be something else coming first. Not trying to be cryptic, but con season is busy and I need to plan out news and info so each gets its full impact.

That's going to be the name of my tell-all expose about CGL's freelance writers.

...moving on. So core rulebook reprints and the new boxed sets are confirmed and being printed and happening. What's next?

Hopefully, Shattered Fortress.

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.

Coming releases page seems to indicate the Alpha Strike CE and the pdf exclusives like brush wars. Shattered Fortress (“final final stage”) and maps are still on the table for this year.

It will be very impressive if they can pull it all off but I am currently pleased that they were able to get the box sets to gencon

Not sure why people keep thinking the new minis are assembled from parts, it would be more expensive that way . . . and you can also see them online painted for promo materials, I think a Catapult, two meds? and a heavy? for a lance of blue w/gray or silver highlights.

If the new BattleTech boxes are out in the next couple of months, I might be forced to buy some for people as Christmas presents. Life is a vale of tears.

It's more interesting than optimal, and therefore better. O0 - Weirdo

Because if you compare this commando (new)

https://bg.battletech.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/BeginnerBox-Miniatures3_w-Basecoat.jpg?x64300

to the attached commando image the attached is obviously a single cast mini, while the new one, definitely has deep recessed shadows at the Shoulders, hips, and under the feet.

Of course there is also this line from the box set description:

8 high-quality, fully assembled (unpainted) miniatures:

Which is a departure from the previous Box Set's decription of:

24 unpainted, ready-to-play plastic BattleMech minis

The inclusion of the phrase "fully assembled' does lend itself to the interpretation the minis are a multipart casting as opposed to a single-cast mini.

We have had pictures of them single piece and I would swear they answered the question several times in the last thread- to the point of a couple pages of discussion of the virtues of single piece vs multi-piece molds.

Maybe, but they have yet to show a picture of the actual in box mini, all mini pictures have been the production models not final release.

Does that mean I'm not gonna buy? No, still gonna get them, but if the are 'fully assembled' minis that means they may be easier to deconstruct to mod as opposed to a single piece.

Well the 25th Anniversary ones, yes, but not the 2nd printing High Quality/Lance Pack ones.
