Holy RAD!

OMG! Nerd moment here – I played BattleTech like a thousand years ago. It was my first foray into tabletop gaming and it was GREAT! Well, the memories are, anyhow. The mini painting? Not so good. But it was a hoot and now it’s BACK!

BattleTech has been dormant for years (it’s best to just ignore the boring Xbox 360 remake) but according to this Wired Article, it’s getting a dust off. Dude, the idea of piling myself into a pimped out Marauder and dropping my lance right into a hot LZ to duke it put with some enemy Atlas mechs makes me very, very excited.

Alright, nerdy moment over, just ignore this nerdy rant and carry on doing whatever it was you were doing on the internet.

    Wow. I had a copy of the game when it was still called BattleDroids.

    I had a few friends that would play BT all the time. I even created a campaign for them when MechWarrior (the RPG rules) came out.

    Wow. Now I find myself reading the wikipedia page.

    Heehee! A friend of mine is an avid mini-painter/player and just got into WarMachine. Think BattleTech but steampunkified. Seriously cool minis… cool enough that I’ve thought about giving it a whirl myself.
