When I was a wee lad I got into some table top gaming action in a big way. I got right into it with painting detailed miniature models, ravenously go over rules sets, absorbing all the stats and reading every novel linked to the universe. Most people will say wow you were into Warhammer but they would be wrong. I was into the the big arse robot equivalent called Battletech. No hammers and swords crap here just Mechs with PPC, lasers, autocannons and machine guns beating the crap out of each other.
I got older and moved on from this hobby but managed to dabble my toes in the Battletech universe every now and then via computer games with the name most people are familar with, Mechwarrior. Mechwarrior though was a big arse robot simulator, which was fun but I missed the turn based strategy that drew me in to the table top Battletech universe.
Fast forward to 2018 and we have coming in April a full realisation of the old school Battletech rule set in a shiney new game by Harebrained Schemes available on Steam or Greenmangaming. This new version now includes a single player campaign along with PvP multiplayer. So if turn based strategy with mechs is your thing, grab a copy and come beat the crap out of me in a big arse robot 🙂
