Welcome to Mod Monday! One of the best ways to make your force stand apart from the rank and file and attract new players to the table is with creative and unique game pieces. While Battletech and Alpha Strike aren't WYSIWYG (wee-see-wig, "What you see is what you get") like other games, modifications, reposes, and creative construction enhance the gaming experience. In Mod Mondays, we look at cool modifications and tutorials to build dynamic poses!
This week, we'll look at prototypes of the upcoming Newseens releases!
Nostalgia his hard in soft places.
Of all the bits and pieces of Battletech history, none are quite as legendary as the tale of the Unseens. Suffice to say, for those who don't know, you can learn all you need to know about the Unseens by spending a few hours around a classic, Total Warfare-style game with the "Old Guys" who played "Back in the day..." (If you must, you can read a bit about Unseens at Sarna.net and the Battletech forums.)
But what was seen cannot be unseen--at least, not forever. With the release of Alpha Strike, Catalyst Game Labs has torn the sheet off these venerable pieces and given them new life as the Classics--also known as the Newseens.
While so much more can be said for these, lets just enjoy the warm fuzzies of nostalgia with this workbench photo.
What is to come of these? First, [redacted]. Second, I plan on [redacted]. As for the [redacted], it will eventually be [redacted] into a [redacted] because who doesn't love [redacted]. Finally, [redacted].
For all players, new and old, the Unseens will continue to be the stuff of legend. Like a real-world Lostech Cache, the original models will continue to hold our collective nostalgia hostage. With the amazing work coming from the Newseens previewed in the Alpha Strike Combat Manuals, as well as the Primitives and Reseens, players will be able to have a small taste of the excitement of opening a new Marauder or Warhammer at their childhood friendly local game store.
