  • The first all-new map set in nearly twenty years, Map Set: Grasslands ($29.99) will be available in the Catalyst Game Labs store, with a street date of April 17 to retail outlets. The perfect expansion to either the Beginner Box or BattleTech: A Game of Armored Combat boxed set, these six two-sided paper maps include 12 battlefields of the same high-quality, modern art of those box sets, offering new tactical challenges and opportunities.
  • The next all-new, 35th Anniversary celebratory item will be four all-new BattleMats (29.99 each), available exclusively in the Catalyst Game Labs store. These double-sided high-quality neoprene maps are durable and highly detailed, and will make an eye-catching addition to your gaming table. They’re only available exclusively through the Catalyst online store, and they’ll go fast! A future release of these products to retail outlets is possible depending on customer response. The mats available include:
    • Grassland & Lunar
    • Grassland & Desert
    • Grassland & Alpine
    • Grassland & Savannah
  • Another commemorative product will be available: lapel pins! Wear your BattleTech love proudly with these enamel pins bearing the 35th Anniversary logo and Warhammer.
  • The first volume in the long-awaited trilogy of Kell Hounds short stories by legendary BattleTech author Michael Stackpole, Not the Way the Smart Money Bets ($3.99) will be available in ebook format.
