Camlann Lancers ready for battle

Four posts in four days, and more to come after the weekend. Don't let this become a habit or people will expect the same level all the time!

Off to Galway for a spot of BattleTech with these guys. Classic heavy 'mechs with some real personality - though I have no idea what they'll be facing...

Scenario writing for Gaelcon is coming along nicely. Got an order from S&S Models last week (great service by the way) so I want to paint up their hotspots and IEDs as well as finish painting a few buildings. So (fingers crossed) in pretty good nick as far as preparations are concerned.

Results of the Poll on using casualty figures are in:
Absolutely - The more flavour pieces, the better 12 - 46.15%
I Should - But usually I can't be bothered 6 - 23.08%
Maybe - If they're available 5 - 19.23%
No - Don't see the point 3 - 11.54%
Never - I don't want to be reminded of the realities of war 0 - 0%

Interesting. Personally I love the flavour they add to a game, and if they're available I try to use them. But I would never not play a game or think the less of a setup if it didn't have casualty figures.


  1. Well old spoon, at least you're gaming - even if it is TubbyTech.

  2. I am envious of your unseen lance. Highly envious.

  3. Thanks Arquinsiel,
    We are (very) old school BattleTech hands, so I guess we don't quite appreciate what we have on the unseen front!
    Battle report includes a Crusader and a Phoenix Hawk so I expect your envy will spike to '11'
    See you at Gaelcon maybe?

  4. Yup, I'll definitely be there for one day at least. I've got a 3rd ed plastic Crusader and Archer, with a PlasTech Locust and Valkyrie (ugh....) donated by a kind veteran at Gaelcon last year. Someone sold a Griffin to Gamer's World and I was given a Battlemaster by the guy who owned a comicbook shop in Connecticut when I visited almost a decade ago.

    Given that I only started to collect around that time I think I've managed to gather a decent few of them really, but only some are useable.
