Hello,

As stated on the files section, I am currently pimping this game to give it a more "pleasant" look. Pity that it doesn't receive as much love as it deserves.

Pimped rules including "Player's Ed" additions is already up in the file section. I just wanted to upload a sample of the Event Cards. Currently finishing the work on them and thought I shared to see what you guys think.

The next step will be printing 3D small mechs (I am thinking 16mm at most for assault ones) and re work the Inner Sphere map.

So please leave any feedback.

All art belongs to their owners.

Great work! RESPECT!

As for the mechs and other units, i am currently in process of upgrading my version with pieces from RISK 2210 because it has 3 types of "mechs" which is good for light, medium and heavy/assault units. Fact is that they come in 5 colours of which 4 match with Battletech houses (only MArik needs to be painted in purple, and Comstar in white.
As for conventional units i have tank pieces from ordinary risk in various colours to represent.
Jumpships will be represented with spaceships from one of my space games such as Twilight Imperium.
So if you have some old risks available then maybe you can canibalize them instead of "printing" them.

That was one possibility, but given the relatively "cheap" 3D printing costs, the fact that Mechwarrior Online has revamped and made gorgeous mech models and that I have enough spare time, I really want to go the extra mile.

I think small 15mm mechs, that we all can recognize will give the game the perfect touch

Awesome!

This game clearly needs a rework. It's a great scenario and I'd love a reimplementation 30 years later with newer mechanics.

Ok i can see the point in printing the mechs.
So you will not use the original game counters for units but you will use mech figures.
Do you have plan then to print some tanks also for conventional forces and jumpships too?
Which models will you use for leaders and factories?

Tanks and dropships (raid markers) too. Factories can be good old wooden meeples and fo rleaders I think the best is to use updated counters. Jump ships...thinking about it and toying with 3d models

Next steps:

.- Start the work on the Inner Sphere map. I am toying with some ideas in my mind but don't know yet where or how to start.

.- Work on mech 3d models: I am between choosing 4-5 mech models (light- medium- heavy- assault) to represent forces: 1-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10. After some reading maybe, and if available, "typical" mech models for each house (i.e. Raven for Marik, Dragon for Kurita and so on)

.-Tank 3d model: I am working on some mechcommander 2 files

.-Dropship: Have already a scaled 3d model.

.- Control/ Piracy counters: 90% done

Some more eye candy : (15mm warhammer classical prototype painted)

cool

Keep up the good work!

As far as i can recall from the books i have read from the Battletech series (some 20 years ago), typical Kurita light mech type was Jenner, Commando (produced somewhere in Donegal district) was Steiner typical Light Mech, and Zeus was Steiner typical Heavy Mech. Valkyre i think light mech was Davion's design but i'm not 100 percent sure on that.

I'm pretty sure that Locust and Wasps light mechs were the most common Mech types for Bandit kingdoms and other peripherial States

If something more comes to my mind i will post it

i have found my Technical Readout book from 3025, and according to it i agree with lycanthropos, but just with one remark.

HBK-4G Hunchback is House Kurita typical Medium Mech design (Manufacturer: Komiyaba/Nissan General Industries)
