BattleTech: Total Warfare returns with a new cover, presenting the core BattleTech rules as a useful reference.

It is the 31st century, a time of endless wars that rage across human-occupied space. Star empires clash, winning and losing these epic wars using BattleMechs, 30-foot-tall humanoid metal titans bristling with lasers, autocannons and dozens of other lethal weapons; enough firepower to level entire city blocks.

Your elite force of MechWarriors drives these juggernauts into battle. They proudly hold your faction’s flag high, intent on expanding the power and glory of your realm. At their beck and call are the support units of armoured vehicles, power armoured infantry, aerospace fighters and more.

The skilful MechWarrior can command all these units to aid him in ultimate victory. Will they become legends, or forgotten casualties in this time of total warfare? Only your skill and luck will determine their fate!

The product of more than twenty years of gaming experience, Total Warfare presents the rules of the BattleTech game system as never before. For the first time, all the rules for various units that have a direct impact on the deadly battlefields of the thirty-first century appear in a unified rules set: from BattleMechs to ProtoMechs, Combat Vehicles to Support Vehicles, infantry to aerospace fighters and DropShips.

Interwoven and meticulously updated, Total Warfare provides the most detailed and comprehensive rules set published to date for BattleTech—the perfect companion for standard tournament play.

Who is This Book Intended For?

Total Warfare is the single-source rulebook for people who play BattleTech. It’s an ideal reference book once you’ve learned the basic game rather than the best to teach you the basics; all the extra technologies and expansive rules that aren’t in the boxed set are in this book. The ideal introductory games in the BattleTech line are BattleTech: A Game of Armoured Combat and the budget-conscious alternative Beginner Box which just features two BattleMech models. New players should ideally pick up one of those boxes before diving into this one.

Shiny Games on BattleTech Total Warfare

BattleTech is one of the all-time great miniature games, playable either on a hex-board or a gaming table. It is not a complex game at its heart, however additional technology adds rules as well as depth. New players will find it best to start with one of the introductory sets first. These give you streamlined rules and a good set of starting BattleMechs and map sheets to play with.

    A great book for all things Battletech. This has rules for Mechs, tanks, infantry and planes. It loses one star because it doesn’t have quite as much info for mechs as the Battlemech Manual does.

    Despite this, it’s perfectly good for starting out with the game and a great follow on from the Starter Set or the Game of Armoured Combat box!

    *The* rules reference for BattleTech. I’ve owned many editions over the years and was happy to pick up this latest printing with the new cover art. If I had to nitpick (and the only reason I didn’t rate 5*), it would be that the weight of the paper is lower than I expected compared to other editions of the book (the last I had was 4th printing; this is the 7th) and other recent Catalyst Game Labs books I’ve bought.
