An official Catalyst Game Lab rep will be giving a demo for the BattleTech miniature game on Tuesday the 19th at 6PM.

“The BattleTech/MechWarrior universe is a dynamic setting where star empires wage endless war for domination, sending MechWarrior-knights and their armies of giant, humanoid BattleMechs to clash across alien worlds. A place where heroes and villains bring the universe to life, spawning a host of games, novels, toys and more.”

Fanelli returns

The Battle of Bushy Run took place August 5-6, 1763 in western Pennsylvania, between Pontiac’s Indian confederation and a force composed of Highlanders and the 60th Royal American Regiment.

On Saturday the 23rd, Bob Fanelli will be running his famous home-brewed miniature game system so you can fight this battle. He can handle up to 10 players, spaces will be given to people that reserve a space in advance, then first come, first served.

This week

Coming up on Saturday January 30th we will be running a Warmachine
