'Alpha Strike is a new, fast-playing form of the BattleTech game of futuristic, armored combat. Developed for the modern tabletop miniatures wargamer, this book brings players the ability to wage war on land, sea, and air using the Quick-Strike game system first devised for truly large-scale play, re-scaled to the tactical level of â€œclassicâ€ BattleTech'.
Above is an example of what each unit will look like (in this case a Timber Wolf-Prime). This is about the size of an index card so having hordes of full size record sheets are no longer needed. Although Catalyst Games Labs will also be releasing a set of 90 pre-laminated colour cards from the sample forces found in the Alpha Strike rulebook with more to follow. Here is an example:
Everything will be provided on the day so it is just a matter of showing up and jumping right in. Even if you have never played BattleTech before these new streamlined rules will get you into the excitement quickly. Games will be short which leaves plenty of time for players to do other things at the club.
It's BattleTech like you have never seen before....WITHOUT the hexes!

The complete rules will be released in hard cover and is available for pre-order through Alpha Strike now. Visit the website HERE
