"THE GAME OF ARMORED COMBAT"
Developer: Catalyst Game Systems
Battletech is a tactical game where you are a pilot of a "battle Mech", massive 30-foot tall robots piloted for battle in the 31st century.
Miniatures are purchased pre-built and un-painted on hexagonal bases.
The two main game types for BattleTech are called "Total Warfare" and "Alpha Strike".
"Total Warfare" is the most traditional game mode based on a hexagonal map with a immense depth in technical readout sheets.
"Alpha Strike" is a quicker, more streamlined version of BattleTech where movement is based on inches rather than hexes, and loadouts are far simpler but less immersive.
