There once was a magazine called The Techfactory.  In it, i remember a couple of articles about LOS.  DOes anyone else remember this?

I vaguely remember it...was it the Global Games magazine.

I always wanted to get my hands on the Abyss Carboard towers

Naw, it was a Battletech magazine that branched out to other games as well.  I think the first LOS article was in number four.

Crashman is right about the magazine. It was a Battletech fanzine originally.

Hi All!
I was the editor of The Tech Factory.
You are right it was a BattleTech Fanzine, but we branched out and started covering LOS.

We did have some new units we created and even got Clark to provide BPV for them.
If you have any questions or are looking for anything let me know.

Hi Gregg,

Do you have those old articles? And would you be willing to let us put them in our downloads section?

As long as he's willing, I believe I already have those articles in electronic format. Even if I don't, I have the original magazines and can scan them.

That would be great to see some 'new' old articles - I never had any issues of The Techfactory.

I think I actually have all but one magazine (I.N.F.E.R.N.O.) that appeared with LoS content in it. I'd be willing (time permitting) to put all of it up here. Are there any issues with that?

I have the articles however they are all on 3.5 " floppies ...
If you want to scan them and upload them that is fine with me.

If anyone actually wants to buy an issue.  Let me know, I have a bunch of back issues somewhere...

I was just looking through my box and found some old print-outs of several TechFactory articles! I forgot I even had 'em!!!

I have a few pages from #4 that contain product reviews and the scenario 'Unite', some pages from #5 with product reviews, errata & the scenario 'Pinning Action', and pages from #7 that contain stats for new UNE & Machine units, and the massive looking scenario 'Clash Of The Titans'.

Unfortunately I don't have a working scanner right now or I'd get 'em up on here for everyone else to enjoy. Are there more articles available than what I have??

I'll have to check my physical copies. In the meantime, I found the .pdf files I had; they are from the old Yahoo Group. They should now be awaiting moderator approval here.
