Do folks use the lance sets that were sold or the regular mechs for Alpha Strike?

Battleforce lance packs? Or Alpha Strike lance packs?

There's no significant difference between the AS lance pack minis and individually packaged minis. I use individual minis and others I've played with use those plus AS lance pack minis together.

Any of them. I am asking because I have seen many who seem to think that WH40K style rules apply to BT, and watched one group at a local gaming store get upset because of an Alpha Strike game was being run with regular BT miniatures vs the Alpha Strike ones.

The AS line is quite small. Do they get upset when someone uses a Daishi in AS? There is no AS mini for it. There are no official rules limiting the miniatures you can use, save for "official minis at official events."

IWM produces the metal minis that the AS minis are copies of (the old Beginner Set minis). The only difference is the material used to make them.

And IWM also has Battleforce miniatures of the mechs, some of which I used for my groups as Protos or Powerarmor for different factions.

These were box sets of four mechs sold for a while. The Battleforce ones were and are smaller versions of the normal mechs. These were supposed to be used with the Battleforce game and show the scale of that game, which was if I recall Brigade and higher.

The Alpha Strike Lance packs were sold for a while and you got four mechs that were slightly smaller than the normal IWM mechs, had bases already attached and were plastic vs the metal of the BF ones and other IWM mechs.
