Fast and Dirty

BattleTech: Alpha Strike contains rules for using Battletech minis (or whatever you want to proxy with) for playing fast, table top miniature style skirmishes using 3D terrain scaled to 6mm (or whatever you have on hand). This strips back the granular nature of the core game almost to its bare bones, and there are no traditional hex maps in sight.

The book is fairly easy to navigate with a lovely print quality. The rules still amount to a good bit of crunch, however, catering towards combined arms warfare if that's your thing.

If you're a 'gear head' (like myself) and enjoy the simulation aspect of BattleTech then this may not be for you. However one of the joys of BattleTech is how scalable it can be with the huge offering of various rules and play styles on offer. If you want to play a company level game but don't have much time? You will likely find value here.

And if you want a miniatures game that's a break from something like Warhammer with a good amount of detail, you'll probably find something to like here to.

COMMAND YOUR DESTINY

In the BattleTech universe there remains one constant: the drums of war. And where there is war, valiant military commanders from the Great Houses, the Clans, and other interstellar nations lead the charge of hulking BattleMechs, brave infantry, and daring aerofighters to certain victory or crushing defeat on the sprawling battlefields of distant worlds. Rally your troops onward into the fray, and surge forth to triumph over the enemy.

Alpha Strike: Commander's Edition collects into one handy volume the revised fast-play rules from the original Alpha Strike and the expanded rules from Alpha Strike Companion. Take command of large-scale engagements with tabletop-miniatures gameplay designed for the modern wargamer. Use the force-creation rules to marshal your armies, charge them into battle, and either reap the rewards of conquest or taste the bitter pill of defeat. The future of the Inner Sphere is in your hands!
