I started playing about 17 years ago. I was saddened by the collectable, clciky version.

This I am excited about. First new rules in YEARS. Combined ops. New vehicle rules (improved) can now use aerotech fighters as well. All combined arms.

Even rules for nukes.

I also like the historical sourcebooks they are putting out.

Now I have to go in the attic and dust off my mechs.

Played Classic BT, had the rules for Heavy Gear - I'd pick up the new version of either if I had opponents nearby.

Yeah, I think I'll stick to Heavy Gear for mecha. Battletech is great for that nostalgic game now and then, but the ruleset itself is nothing too impressive. The new HGB rules, however, are great.

I didnt know heavy gear was still around. What was that other ruleset, CAV? Any relation?
