Good to see the Com Guards live on. Thinking about running something with some fanatics.

Though its surprising they are willing to go back to the teachings of Blake.

TtS: Regis Roost is a neat product. I've never seen that governmental style before.

And the Spotlight On Unending Faith shows a lot about how the ComGuards were reconstituted. Really good work on both.


Edit: Though the angel's face on Unending Faith's cover reminds me of a grey alien. Weird eyeballs.

Thing is, the Republic stomped out the Blake infused chunks of ComStar inside the Fortress . . . but nothing gets mentioned about outside the Fortress, and Buhl specifically mentions how getting cut off has affected their resources.  Melissa was negotiating with someone to fund ComStar after all.

There's been lots of mentions about ComStar outside the Fortress. They are pretty much defunct there too. Defections, sell-offs, takeovers, suicides, massacres, etc. And there were no additional troops outside the Fortress either.

huh?

If ComStar was infected- which Buhl, Patricia Harwell, whoever Buhl was playing internal politics against, and the new 1st Div imply- then it would be logical that SOME part of the organization was outside the Fortress since ComStar was a human-space wide organization leaving out Clan OZs.  From what I recall Buhl implied there were others outside the Fortress and knew about the debt to Melissa though I do not think either one ever discussed when the loans started but that repayment was due soon or the Lyrans would gain some control.

Now, was most of the ComStar organization like Tucker Harwell- innocent and thinking Blake's followers went away after their defeat in the Jihad?  I am sure that the majority of the organization was not Blakist- but what does it matter if you are not part of the conspiracy if your boss is and gives you directions that can be explained as in the business interest but really further the conspiracy's goals.

roosterboy, we have had mentions of ComStar outside the Fortress- never said we did not.  But we have not had any concrete mentions of the Blakist conspiracy inside ComStar for those portions cut off by the Fortress.  No one outside the Fortress, before the Wall came down anyway, knew about the Blakist resurgence in any manner.  I also never suggested they had military forces of any size outside the Fortress- I think that is unlikely though it would be easier to have BA units, especially any Spec Ops group outside the Fortress.

Blake's followers (really Toyama's) are never going to be wiped out IMO, just like similar underground organizations IRL.  Some deep cover Blakist ROM agents in the ComStar organization that survived the Jihad and dis-armed to become a corporate entity is probably where the infection sprang from . . . and will again.

BattleTech Boxed Sets Update #2 - Oct. 30, 2018

No tricks this Halloween, but a small treat for BattleTech players - we've got some new information about the much-anticipated "BattleTech Beginner Box" and "BattleTech: A Game of Armored Combat" boxed sets.

We have confirmed that the full run of both sets has been printed, and shipped from China on Tuesday, Oct. 30. They're making their way across the high seas, and are expected in port on the East Coast of the United States on Nov. 26. After about a week to clear customs, they're scheduled for arrival at our distributor on Dec. 3. At that point, we should be able to offer a more specific street date for these products.

Remember that these dates are estimates only--things like weather and other physical delays can and do occur in maritime shipping. We'll keep you updated as we continue to track the shipment's progress.

In the meantime, we recently announced a full slate of mini-PDF products to tide you over. The next one, Touring the Stars: Hall will be out Nov. 9--check out the full slate here!

Good question. I'm betting not, but checking with management now.

Per management: "Highly doubtful, unfortunately."

BUT, the full production run is on the move, so the wide release shouldn't be too terribly far off.

Question: Is the full run of these boxes the same as that of the previous box (7,500), which sold out in two days?

Last printing of the box set (Alex Iglesias Atlas art). Print run of 7,500. Battleshop sold out in two days.


Loren quoted that number at Gen Con that year, saying it was 50% bigger than a standard BattleTech print run.

7,500 would be 50% more or the standard run for the box.
I also believe he said it.
I recall “it” selling out over a weekend—I also recall that it was part of some deal or bogo or incentive.
I do not believe that “it” was 7,500, but only the portion allotted to the store.
My recollection is that particular time was a partial run.

Again, I can readily believe that was said.
But…I can tell you there’s no way we sold out of 7,500 boxes in two days. Something’s conflated.

Rather hoping that it's more than a 5K run. I wouldn't expect that to run out in two days, but (based on my arse-pull estimate) if it survives two months I'd be surprised.

Given that this order is 6 odd months later than expected, that's a lengthy restock.

And if they're at mech-con I would probably grab.

I'm sure the lion's share of the run went to the distributors and some were set aside for convention sales. What was allocated to Battleshop to sell lasted two days.

That sucks that the China freighter has to go to New York not LA.

Very glad they are on the boat and on the way. Now to figure out what ship they are on and stalk the ship on Shiptracker!!!
