So Ben (not the hairy one that likes Dwarves, but our son) is jumping for joy to be seeing more releases in the works for his all time favorite miniatures game Battletech.
This time they have released a Beta version of a new source book for the Alpha Strike rules called Combat Manual: Mercenaries. With this new beta testing they have created a forum where they will be monitoring it until early December look at suggestions for rules improvement from the testers.
They do not have much to say about the actual material in the source book, but one could surmise that it would allow certain miniatures to hire themselves to the different houses to improve their odds in winning a battle.
With this new announcement, Catalyst Game Labs is offering special packages of their PDF version of Alpha Strike Rulebook and Alpha Strike Companion. If you love your Battletech like Ben does and want a more streamlined game than check out Alpha Strike and help steer the course of this new source book.
Are your mechs up to the challenge?
