Paul Grover
40th Anniversary Set

I’m really happy to add this to my collection, while we all know the only difference is the box art and the ILClan primer (which I’m looking forward to reading), it’s enough to make me want to add it to my collection.

Knocked it out of the park

Shipping was fast and the box arrived in pristine condition.

Ian Baxter
Perfect box set to get started

The new starter box for Battletech is a great step up from the beginner box and the inclusion of new era specific content is a nice bonus. Fortress, as always, delivered earlier than anyone at a great price and I can't recommend them enough!

Jimmi Kristensen
Great box set for the price

It is a great box set for a reasonable price (and i have to admit that i am a "box collector nerd" who like to have different box set in my collection), with some interesting new content (compared to the old set with the same name).
