Battletech Table
« on: January 22, 2023, 08:37:50 PM »
Gearing up for a game of either Fistful of Mecha or Alpha Strike with my son, and have some fun new buildings to fight over (fueling station, dropship, and some alpha strike buildings).



She does the job, even if not the most glorious dropship build:



Road into town:



Some hex based tree tiles (thought that was apropos given the old hex maps):



Downtown:



I have to say, I do like having the cars.  They help immensely with sense of scale/ambiance. 
On time, on target, or the next one's free

I think it's a great table, and I rather like the dropship too - well done!  :D

That looks just great!  8)

And I agree: the dropship is cool; not often you get to see a full sized one on a table after all :)
Miniatures you say? Well I too, like to live dangerously...

Thanks all.  My son seems to be enjoying playing it so far, so we'll see how it goes this round.

Nice work, I did something similar back when I was using Elbowtech, lol.

I think Battletech, of all the old school IP's is in dire need of a modernization refresh.  I know some people like the ancient clunkiness of it, but it's such a cool IP and they finally have decent minis (both the new production plastics and the availability of 3D printed minis).

Nice table!  And agree that tree hexes are suitably thematic.

A wonderful table.  The cars add scale as well as potential targets.  lol
