Great work on these minis. When I was getting into Battletech I faced the same problem: I couldn't find anyone to play with. I had pretty much all the books and roleplaying material but I guess I came to the game too late. The big thing had become Mage Knight, and of course, Magic: The Gathering. I think if FASA and Wiz Kids did what Games Workshop did with Warhammer 40K, then Battletech would have dominated the scene.
