Battletech: Best Mech In The Game

This week’s BATTLETECH poll- your vote for the BEST mech in the game? If we take into account the equation across all wight classes: battle value + speed + armor +weapons, which mechs come out on top? Which mech is number 1. My vote? The Jenner. First we look at battle value: 875. Perhaps a bit high for a light mech, but the Jenner easily performs as a medium mech for 200-300 battle value less. Read more…

We both agree how much BV we want to play- pick our mechs and support units- tanks, infantry, etc. and roll for a mission.

The Oldest Necron Army On The Internet

What is the oldest army in my collection? My Grey Knights are old- when Grey Knights used to be under the Daemonhunters codex. My Necron Raiders army is the oldest in my collection- from 1991.

LOTS of warriors, immortals, and scarabs lead by the Egyptian Read more…

Tyranid Army: Hulknids

Our numbers will blot out the stars… …if Tyranids could talk. This is the army that got me started with Tyranids. I never intended to play space bugs, but had a chance to buy the army years ago for a price that could not be passed up. Some interesting models and conversions in the army reflecting the history of it and the gaming club. The army started out somewhere in 4th edition with lots of Read more…
