Historic Turning Points – Misery

So, I ordered the PDF versions of the BattleTech Classic’s Historic Turning Points: Misery and Operational Turning Points: Death to Mercenaries books to build on the fluff of my Wolf’s Dragoons army. It was very interesting reading through the missions that were laid out for the Chaos Campaign rules.

I read through the Misery book last night, I was a bit shocked at the size of he armies that the missions were talking about fielding – entire regiments at times! I just don’t see how that is feasible in BattleTech Classic, the missions would take a whole day maybe more! Of course, not having played any classic games I may be way off in my time estimations. I think that they could be used in an Alpha Strike campaign with very little tweaking.

The size of the missions have me thinking that I want to paint up a Company from Alpha Regiment, Gamma Regiment, Zeta Regiment, and the Black Widows. I will paint all the combined arms (infantry, vehicles, and such) in a color scheme that will allow them to work for any regiment/faction.

I can’t wait to read through the Death to Mercenaries book!
