Get Ready for BattleTech: Mercenaries

Well well well… time moves fast. Yesterday CGL already shared details on the Battletech Mercenaries Kickstarter.

At first I was all „oh no! the last KS was much cheaper“. And *technically* I am correct. My last pledge was:

Clan Invasion:
Pledge US$ 50 or more

Command an entire Star of the Clans‘ finest war machines. This pledge rewards you with a new piece of BattleTech fiction (digital format, delivered during the campaign), a copy of the Clan Invasion box set, and your choice of available Clan Challenge Coins.


Free Short Story (digital format, delivered during the campaign)
Clan Challenge Coin
Clan Invasion Box Set

So ignoring all the stretch goals that was 5 mechs for 50 USD

Now if we take a closer look on the Merc box picture we see:

Vehicle count: 4
1 Challenge Coin
„Double Blind“ digital novel
4″ Timber Wolf

That is 8 ‚mech for 80 USD (same price per mini) PLUS you get 4 vehicles and a 4″ display Mad Cat/Timber Wolf.

So did the „base pledge for new product“ get more expensive? Yes. Do we get more stuff? Also yes. It’s still „more money“ and there is no news yet on what shipping and import fees might add up to.

But I am excited!
