Best IS APC?

Posted by wars128 on March 3, 2008

thisthread on the official forums lends to an interesting question. i’d take out the standard APC immediately, since most BattleTech games use platoon size or bigger, they are impossible to use in things like Mega Mek. I favor IFVs over APCs but thats just me. What about you?

First Real mech battle!

Posted by wars128 on March 2, 2008

Played my first real mech battle( I. e. on a real board, human opponent,heat, IS etc.). We each had a custom 70 tonner. My friends was suspiciously like an Archer K,4/6 with 2 large lasers and two LRM 10s. (He had asked me for suggestions, and thats what i came up with). Mine went 4/6/4, had a PPC, LRM 5, and 3 medium lasers with an insane number of heatsinks(21 total), and a lot of armor. I didn’t realize until after the game that I nearly made a Grasshopper. The game was only 4 or so rounds, and we each only hit each other once. He won the initiative most of the time, but in the end, it was me who got lucky. I roll for the PPC. 12. Headshot. I roll for the critical. Cockpit. I wished it would have gone on longer, so that he could see how much damage mechs can take, but oh well. Then I went on to play warhammer 40K(His preferred war board game of choice), but he is interested in forming a mercenary unit, so I guess that means he wants to play again. We might play later this week, and I’m planning on introducing him to Vehicles next.
Ill have a more in-depth report of the next battle I do.
