  1. Hey everyone! I'm hosting a Battletech tournament at Mindtaker on May 26th! Here's the deets! https://www.mindtaker.org/event/mindtaker-miniatures-solaris-stock-series-battletech-tournament/ Come on down for some stompy robot action!
  2. They are definitely strong. I was on the receiving end of one from a GSC gang once... utterly deleted my dudes. They're basically a cheap, short-ranged lascannon.
  3. Ooh, this sounds fun! Question, though, about the scarcity of items - certain items in the house equipment lists are not listed in the trading post (E.G., the arc hammer for Orlocks) and the house books don't list their rarity. How to handle that?
  4. I might be able to commit to something in spring and summer (the hits have just kept coming this fall and winter... life just doesn't stop, it would seem.) But I'd love the opportunity to model up some rides for my Orlocks...
  5. So my birthday is coming up, and with it, my partner is bugging me about gift ideas. I'm starting to think I'd like to upgrade my FDM printer; that stupid Ender 3 Pro I have spends more time just sitting there doing nothing because it's constantly in need of tweaking and tinkering and calibrating and god only knows what sort of dark voodoo to get it to work right. I'm thinking about asking for a new printer, since tech has advanced considerably in the last 5 years or so since I got it, and I'm looking at other options for something more reliable and plug and play. Budget is preferably less than $300; I'm looking at a Sovol SVO6 right now, but the Elegoo Neptune 3 has caught my eye as well, as has the Anycubic Kobra 2 Neo (just for the price, but I see a lot of negativity around the original Kobra Neo, so I'm kinda steering away from that.) Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
  6. Thursdays will be rough for me, but I could probably handle Tuesdays at WoW. Might be able to schedule other games at different times, too, depending on life. Can probably do a pre-scheduled thing, if that's the direction things go. October would be a good start for me, as I'm pretty much down for the count for the next three weeks or so (hernia surgery next Monday, and feelin' it pretty bad in the meantime.)
  7. I, too, would love some more details... I have a lot of models I need to prep, so it would help to have some advance info about which ones I need to do...
  8. It's official! In the interest of planning ahead, Mindtaker Miniatures has blocked out the second Sunday of every month for Battletech! That means that our next BT day is August 13th from 10 AM to 5 PM. We'll be running our standard Classic Inner Sphere grinder (stock Succession Wars mechs) and an Alpha Strike table, but we're planning on running something more interesting and in-depth in the near future, so if you have any suggestions or ideas, feel free to hit us up! Come join us for some stompy robot mayhem!
  9. Battletech is back at Mindtaker! Sunday, July 16, from 10 AM to 5 PM! We'll be running grinders for both Classic Battletech as well as Alpha Strike, with plenty of room for open play! $5 cover gets you access to the tables for the whole day! Rumor has it there will be a large lot of second hand Battletech minis, books, and accessories coming down the pipe soon, so come on down and play with us!
  10. So after running an exposure test, it looks like a dying LCD screen is the culprit. It's flickering and not projecting a clear image. The printer is a year old, so I suppose that tracks, even though I haven't done much printing with it for the last six months or so.
  11. It's a finished basement, and I don't think the humidity is significantly different from the upstairs of the house. But I could be wrong.
  12. Okay, tapping the hive mind for wisdom - I moved my resin printer down to the basement and ever since then, the prints have been failing. Every single damn time. I put a heater on the resin vat, because the ambient temperature down there stays consistently around 65 degrees. I tried using fresh resin, I've re-leveled the bed half a dozen times. I can't for the life of me figure out what the hell is going on. I get bed adhesion for the first layer or so, and then it just fails to cure. If I had hair left, I'd be pulling it out. Halp!
  13. So a grinder is a free-for-all event wherein everyone starts in a light mech, then after they get blown up, they move up to a medium, then a heavy, then finally an assault. We'll likely be having no more than 5-6 people per table with it, because otherwise it can bog down quite a bit. We'll have loaner mechs available, but if you want to bring your own, any stock mechs from the Succession Wars TRO or A Game of Armored Combat are fair game. There will be tables for open play as well, depending on what folks want to throw down with. This is our first Battletech day, so we're still trying to feel out what the community wants.
