Rounding out the trio is Snord’s Irregulars Assault Lance, which comes with four larger mechs: Spartan, FrankenMech, Guillotine, and Highlander, along with four MechWarrior cards and four Alpha Strike cards. MSRP is $29.99.
BattleTech is enjoying a renaissance in popularity following very successful Kickstarter campaigns, the most recent supporting the BattleTech: Mercenaries release (see “Adepticon 2023 News: Catalyst Launches ‘BattleTech: Mercenaries’ Kickstarter”). ICv2 had a chance to chat with Catalyst’s owner Loren Coleman about the resurgence in the game (see “ICv2 Interview: Catalyst Game Labs’ Loren Coleman”). Catalyst has also launched a line of BattleTech plush toys this year (see “Two More Adorable ‘BattleTech: Plushytechs’ Head to Retail”). Alpha Strike, a skirmish-scale version of the game, released last year (see “‘BattleTech Alpha Strike’ Boxed Set Storms into Retail Stores”).
