Heartly thank you for your proposal, AMT, but, I think, I'll remain in the ranks of DCMS.
Repainting of 36+ mechs from red paintjob can be very time-consuming :)

Greetings, after much difficulty with the registration CAPTCHA, I finally got on!
Over 20 years ago, this game was my gateway drug to Miniature Wargaming, and now my local friends and I are returning to our roots.

Greetings from Singapore :D ,

Long time fan of the stories but only got into the game recently with a couple of friends. Been looking for Battletech resources online and found this great site. Being new to the game, we're running a sort of mini-campaign set in 3047 with some house rules. For those interested, do check out the link in my sig.

Cheers,

Hello gentlemen, and ladies; gutten abern mein damen und herren. My name is Dwayne Dees, and I first started playing BT back when I picked up my Battledroids boxed set in 1985. I played steadily up until enlisting in the Army in 1990, and by the time I got out in 1996 I didn't have people to play with any more, so I ended up giving away all my stuff in 1998 (still kicking myself for that!). When I discovered that BT was not only back in print, but that there were communities of players online for it as well, I immediately got back into things and have been working on learning the new technologies and such as time and money allow! I am very glad to be a part of this community and am looking forward to talking to you all about something that has always been one of my first loves in the sci-fi world!
My character, Jonathan R. Nathans, is the commanding officer of a mercenary unit called the Crimson Ace Dragoons, of which I am having to start from scratch building again (started out the first time with a battered old 3025 Commando, and am doing it the same way again) and am currently only up to a Commando, Assassin and Urbanmech, but with a little luck and some decent contracts, I plan on rebuilding what had been a unit of 3 combined arms regiments and 1 armored cavalry regiment of hovercraft with aerospace support, and judging by the looks of things on this forum, there are a LOT of new designs and ideas to look forward to learning as I go along!
Again, nice to meet you all, and glad to be here!
