April 2016 — Worst Timing Ever!

For actual BattleTech news coverage we’ll cover the recent Q Workshop announcement (Dice for the people!), and a preview for the First Succession War book (pun intended).

April 2016 — Worst Timing Ever!


  1. Regarding the Liao dice; I would go Capellan Hussars, Northwind Highlanders (understandably forgotten as a Liao line force), St. Ives Armored Cavalry, Death Commandos, and McCarron’s Armored Cavalry (they’d be the mercs in 3025). Other Liao mercs could be Laurel’s Legion, Hampton’s Hessens, 15th Dracon, or the 4th Tau Ceti Rangers.

    Do you have the link to the BattleTech PC game? Sounds interesting.

  2. Its too bad you decided to take a political position on this podcast, and come to the defense of a anti male feminist gaming troll. These people pray on are collective good intentions. Next your tell me that the model train hobby is misogynistic, and racist because its a predominantly white and male. Sooooooooo just like tabletop it’s clear they got gate keeps pushing women out of the hobby as well. Sorry this kind of argument doesn’t hold water.

    btw, How about just try to stay out of e drama all together?
