Terence, you were looking for record sheets for the Sea Skimmer(s), 1 Monitor, and 2 Neptune Subs, right? I DO have a file from Tom with those ships. I will bring the flash drive to next week's game.

also, I can run a 4/4 Grand Titan for 1,999bv :thumbsup:

I know I'm a little late getting this out this month, but the Texas Toy Soldier BattleTech Demo is this Sunday from 12p-5p, 2540 Marsh Ln Carrollton, Texas. Next month's is already scheduled for April 19.

BattleTech Classic and BattleTech Alpha Strike demos will be running continuously all day.  All materials to play will be provided. Play as little or a much as you want.

If you already have Battletech minis, and have played Alpha Strike before, put together a 200 PV Introductory level list. The only special rules available are those found in the Quick Start rules. Tables will be setup for open play, in addition to the demo tables.

You can create Alpha Strike lists and cards using the AS Builder on the Master Unit List.

((This Alpha Strike event is intended for players new to the game, that have previously played in demos, and want to get games in with their new models, and for veteran players to help ease the new players into the game))

We've already got a mass game planned for this Sunday, but I hope yours is a blast!

At the Battle Royale at GenX, will Total War-level ammo be allowed?

I'm planning on something significantly cheaper, since we also have to pay for any pilot improvements in that 2,000 BV.

(Remember, the MUL has a convenient gunnery/piloting chart at the bottom of the page for every unit. Gunnery is the vertical axis, piloting horizontal.)

Yeah, I figured it out. A Grand Titan is 1817bv with a 4G/5P. Maximizing the BV gets me a better PILOT (4) for 1,999.

Given that places are increasingly going on lockdown and/or prohibiting large gatherings... Do we want to go ahead and cancel this week's game?

well SHEESH

L.A. Fitness is closed 'til April 1 (at least) so no workout, but I get to sleep an extra couple of hours

Dallas Maker Space just decided to close for two weeks, so no anime club meeting this Saturday, but I COULD go work some overtime

Church services just became livestream/ radio broadcast with communion distributed OUTSIDE (weather permitting), so shorter mass(?)

I did stop by HobbyTown Tuesday, and picked up some fresh paint brushes and extra super glue (just in case)

I suppose we could call the store and find out their current plans are.

Yep, I think Texas Toy Soldier is the only one not shutting down their game area or haven't announced it yet.  And I bought extra glue myself so I can st...finish the minis I bought.

Yeah, I figured that would happen; I might still run by there anyway.

I was talking with the wife and we could play at my place, five minutes from the shop. Would you guys be interested? It would be bring your own food and drink though we could do a large pizza order for dinner or something. I may we'll check with you all individually but just throwing it out there.

Beats sitting around the apartment, but I will need your address.

In regards to the brief discussion about GHQ at today's game: they are actually donating 15% of any orders made thru March 31 to a veteran's charity, not having a sale.

 (my bad)

Well SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE in my company, convinced SOMEONE ELSE within the powers that be, that my company is an ESSENTIAL BUSINESS; so despite the stay-at-home orders, I still get to go to work. To avoid possible legal ISSUES, all employees have been given a letter to explain our being on the road.

OH YES...…. we have "papers"...... ;D

HUZZAH....with the extra time I currently have, I FINALLY mounted my new boats to plastic strips AND found a few names for them. So next time we play Naval Command, I will have a better selection for my fleet. (but still no carrier, yet)

Battletech. Mostly Marians, though there's a lance of Marik Stygians finally finished, as well as a couple RotS Rangers.

I'm building airplanes and battlepods.  And trying to get these VASSAL modules working.  Otherwise, I am fielding student comments and given them what they consider as too much work.
