Catalyst Game Labs have taken to Kickstarter to expand their BattleTech range with a new set of miniatures and more. BattleTech: Mercenaries comes packed with lots of content for those wanting to dive deeper into this Sci-Fi wargame.

At the heart of this campaign is the new BattleTech: Mercenaries boxed set. This is a supplement to the BattleTech: A Game Of Armoured Combat box which is needed to use this set and comes with twelve new miniatures, paper maps, counters, a rulebook, a primer on the Mercenaries and a lot more. You get Alpha Strike Cards, a whole darn novella and much more!

As well as the new Mercenaries set, you can also get your hands on a whole bunch of additional packs and more. This means that across the board, there are around fifty or so reimagined mech miniatures, support vehicles and VTOL elements.

All of these miniatures have been designed to allow you to dive into the game nice and quickly. Pop them out of the box and get going. I sense that John might find himself doing a lot of painting before that happens though.

As well as being able to get some of the new expansion content for BattleTech, there are also plenty of ways to get yourself started in the game too. You could get some neat Add-Ons like Alpha Strike, the BattleTech Techmanual and more.

The world of BattleTech is much more than just its miniatures games. There is SO much lore and background for BattleTech that it most likely dwarfs that of Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Fantasy Battles combined! The Black Library has nothing on the novels, stories and more that you have to dive into with BattleTech.

BattleTech Pledge Options

There are quite a lot of options for those seeking to pick up a pledge and get stuck into BattleTech. I've picked out just a few that might be worth looking at.

Recruit Pledge Level - BattleTech

At the Recruit level, you can get your hands on a Beginner Box and the Double Blind digital novel which is a good entry point into the game. You also get one of those neat Mercenary sets which could give you some extra firepower.

The Veteran level gets you the Mercenaries box and would be a good way to start if you've already been playing for a bit.

If you want to go all in then you can get your hands on the Big Kappa set. This is pretty wild and comes with a LOT of BattleTech content.

You'd be playing games for a long time before you ran out of things to do with this set. I don't know if this is going to be the pledge level that many folks will go for but it's worth showing off! Could you be tempted to dive into BattleTech with some of these new sets from Catalyst?
