Battletech

for what its worth I've managed to dig up "Citytech", though only the "Citytech" rulebook and not the beautiful hard backed rulebook which has to be somewhere else.

does mean I have the Mechs though, while a tad crude I think they will paint up pretty nicely and not too difficult either, 16 Mechs, 8 for the inner sphere and 8 for the clans, with each side getting two each of four sculpts.

Which suggests two inner sphere and two clan colour schemes to have enough for a four player game, hopefully the mechs and formats are still supported with the revised rules:

Inner Sphere:
- JVN-10P Javelin
- CN9-D Centurion
- ON1-M Orion
- VTR-9K Victor

Clan
- Uller
- Black Hawk
- Mad Cat
- Daishi

also counters for a range of vehicles and infantry units

Had a go at paint some of the models, if I'm honest the models are terrible, went with a plain colour scheme as it hides some of the "issues"

Four Clan Omnimechs, left to right:
- Uller
- Daishi
- Mat cat
- Black Hawk

next for of the same will be coloured differently, and then the Inner Sphere ones will also be in two colour groups

How on earth have you never played Battletech?

Models are pants but the game is pretty good

Important lesson of the day:

when you are facing a mech 50% heavier than you, don't run up and kick it in case it kicks back
