Battletech: Lyran Alliance

Battletech has always been close to my gaming heart.  It is one of the first gaming systems I participated in during my childhood days.  The novels were also lining my shelves as a teenager as well.  So it is only a natural progression to find its way back into my gaming world now.

The background story of the Battletech universe is well established and well developed.  You can find numerous sources on the web at these sites:
Recently I pulled out my Citytech set and main rulebook and began refreshing myself to the universe.  Ebay then was the source of a recent purchase of the Lyran Commonwealth source book.   I just got it in the mail and can't wait to dive into it.

Stay tuned for updates and force building of BATTLETECH !

  1. I have a fondness for House Steiner too, which I think comes from reading the Grey Death Legion books as a youngster.

  2. I heard that the Michael Stackpole books are worth the effort, but that the others aren't quite as good.

    Any advice on which book to start with for someone looking to read into Battletech?

  3. @ Ashley ... Welcome to the blog. Those are great novels.

    @JMHahn ... His books are always great ! Start from the beginning; you can see the "order" via the wiki link provided. Let me know what you think !

  4. I remember playing in H.S. and loving it. We used the buildings from my micro armor game (1/300) annd terrain. IIRR it was classic. Once I find some miniatures to paint up a few of us will probably get heavy into it. Im just not sure who makes them. Oh and I need to re-purchase rules LOL
