Battletech Jackets and Hats On Sale Now

They also have Banners, patches, keychains, pins and dogtags

They come with a turn based tactics game based on Battletech as well, on the off chance that you care about that sort of thing

A wise Surface to Air Missile once said about marrying 9 year olds in Saudi Arabia "Its pretty hard to tell if a 9 year old is going to be hot when she grows up, kids change a lot, usually, seems like a bad system. That cute little nine year old you married could end being a fat, zitty teenager."

See, I'm dumb or something. You said Battletech quite clearly but my brain still went to this.

What does Macross have to do with Battletech?
Not a winner anymore.

We have a campaign. Only another three quarters of a million and it might even be interesting.
If they get one and a half million more they might finally be able overcome decades of technical problems and invent a way to play a turn based game over the internet.

Can't be done.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Fallout 4 eat your heart out

Customizable Home Base Unlocked! It Might Be Humble - But It's Home! And… Another Backer Mission Reward Unlocked!
Well, that was fast! Thanks to your generous support (and our new INITIATE OF THE ORDER reward level), we’ve unlocked the Customizable Home Base funding goal. HUZZAH!

It Might Be Humble - But It's Home

The Order of Valhalla rallied our forces to make a Customizable Home Base a reality. As we discussed before, our current idea is that you're refitting a derelict ship one module at a time, expanding its functionality based on the needs of your mercenary outfit as you go. (We know many of you are interested to know what sort of ship to expect and we are exploring the possibilities. That will be a topic for a future Kickstarter update some time during production.)

Just like construction in the real world, refitting will take money, time, and judgment as you figure out how you want to allocate the space available for the modules you want to add.

We are just starting to work out the different types of modules, but here are some that we think will be available:

  • ’Mech Bays are the heart and soul of your operation. We see having two types of 'Mech Bays - repair bays and refit bays. One Repair Bay is required for each ‘Mech in your outfit’s inventory where your MechTechs can perform repairs to the internal structure, components, weapons, and armor of the resident ‘Mech. Refit Bays are required for the much more intensive work needed to change a 'Mech’s weapon systems and/or internal components.
  • Space can be dedicated to 'Mech Simulators instead of housing more real 'Mechs or vehicles. During travel, and/or instead of being deployed to the battlefield, MechWarriors can be assigned to the training bay in order to improve specific skills.
  • Adding a MechTech Fabrication Bay will increase your technical teams’ ability to jury-rig, repair, and even improve your 'Mechs.
  • A Sick Bay will treat MechWarriors’ minor wounds, but a Ship’s Hospital will be required to stitch a seriously wounded MechWarrior back together and then convalesce enough to return to battle ready condition.
  • Among others!
We want the design and construction of your home base to be fun, to provide interesting choices, and ultimately to provide long-term benefits to your mercenary outfit.

The next target of opportunity on our march to Stage 4: PVP Multiplayer is…

 $2,150,000 - Legendary 'Mech & MechWarriors: In addition to the game's standard 'Mechs and customizable, procedurally-generated MechWarriors, we'll include rare legendary 'Mechs to find, and rare hero MechWarriors to hire - including some famous characters from BattleTech history. Such legends may not stick around for long, but will be well worth hiring if you can afford them.

We’re ridiculously excited to announce that thanks to our friends at Piranha Games, we’re adding two reimagined classic BattleMechs from the original boardgame to our BATTLETECH game - the Marauder and the Warhammer!

COOOOOOOL!

I think I may throw 25 bucks at this and get in at the base tier. Looks good and I've got a good feeling about it and the team.
