Battletech Alpha Strike June 09 Update

The crew over at Catalyst Game Labs posted the table of contents for Alpha Strike - I like what I see here.  I'll show you the basic contents. Here is the Battletech blog entry for the full table of contents.

I know only a couple of you are interested in these, but if you're into the system, what do you think so far?

Welcome to Alpha Strike!

I like that in the advanced version they get into different weapons and types of movement.  I also like the use of buildings and the campaign system.  It will be interested to see the price of the book.  I wonder if they'll come up with any packs of minis for the introduction of the rules?
