BATTLETECH Is Back Baby!

BATTLETECH Whoop! I am so excited! I have loved BattleTech since the eighties when I used to spend hours filling out stat sheets, then hours more placing pieces on a board and then knocking them over every time I moved something.

That's right, in a move that surprised absolutely no-one, the Dredge will have their butts handed to them in the successfully Kickstarted Banner Saga 3...by Ubin the Scrivener!
