One thing I like to add into every game of Classic Battletech (yes RTVoril & Neverness, you can stop reading now...) is infantry. No Battle armor, as...well, I've never gotten it to work efectively. Kinda odd as there are so many variants of it. True, foot slogging infantry or worse yet mechanized infantry is even less effective for the most part. But you get what you pay for. That said, some infantry units are actually quite good.
|GHQ Micro Armor FTW!|
|A mix of French and Chinese vehicles will have the historical gamers up in arms I'm sure!|
Currently I have 6 Inner Sphere mechanized infantry platoons. I have a single tracked machine gun platoon posted some time earlier. The other 5 are wheeled LRM platoons. Dirt cheap, sorta mobile, and have a 9 hex threat range. Damage potential however is piss poor, but no matter I like them.
|Dirtside minis are the same scale!|
|They'll ride around in some GHQ made Israeli Namer APCs, posing as Heavy Tracked APCs which are out of production it seems.|
|Conveniently they all have a missile launcher...of some sort.|
None of these will be game changers, but nothing is more gratifying to finish off a crippled mech with a worthless unit!
