As we enter the holiday season, all of us here at Catalyst Game Labs wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all BattleTech fans for another amazing year! Your passion and enthusiasm continues to fuel us, and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in store in 2023.

To show our thanks, here are a few products we know you’ve been waiting for…

Alpha Strike Box Set

Price $79.99


The commline ablaze with determination. An army of war-forged metal titans on the heights.

The enemy entrenched in the valley below, weapons charged and loaded.

Then you give the order, and armies surge toward each other banners streaming as lasers, autocannons, and missiles sear and shatter! Will your star-spanning empire win the day? Only you will decide!

It is the 32nd century. For a millennia, mankind has waged wars across thousands of worlds in human-occupied space. The Great Houses. The Clans. The Periphery. A myriad of star empires claiming ascendance, as others wane or fall. They marshal MechWarrior who owe them fealty, each one the master of a towering avatar of destruction: the BattleMech. You are given command of these modern-day knights, dropped onto a battlefield: use your wits and acumen to bring victory or end up a casualty on a forgotten world.

BattleTech is the world’s greatest armored-combat game. In Alpha Strike, you take command of large-scale engagements with tabletop-miniatures gameplay designed for the modern wargamer. Inside includes everything you need to start tossing dice and charging toward the enemy on your gaming table.

Eris ERS-2N Premium Miniature

Price: $14.99


It’s time to come together for one of our own. One of the owner/operators of Iron Wind Metals, a BattleTech licensed product line since the FASA days, is still waging her own private war with cancer. To assist her family, we are once again dedicating profit from this month’s Premium BattleMech Miniature to her health care expenses.

Built by Kallon Weapon Industries, the Eris is a mobile skirmisher perfect for the perpetual low-intensity conflicts in the former Free Worlds League. Now, add it to your own TO&E!

This premium variant uses new modeling techniques being employed to update all BattleMech designs. It comes unassembled and unpainted. 

This premium ‘Mech ALSO comes with an extra torso for the previous release, the Hammerhead! The Hammerhead originally shipped with the wrong torso. So replace it with this one or just kit bash yourself a new FrankenMech with all those extra parts you’ve been collecting!
