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.

I purchased a bunch of them when I got back into the game a few years back when i needed to buy new minis. If I remember correctly, The minis are basically the same Ral Partha / IWM sculpts, just in plastic. So the difference between CBT and AS should be minimal.

I've never had any issues using either IWM minis or the normal AS ones CGL sold a while back. They are pretty indistinguishable to me once painted.

The AS miniatures are a bit smaller than the IWM/RP mechs, not by much but a bit. Then again scale has changed agian with the KS mechs being 1/256 vs the normal 1/285 that is the industry standard for 6mm. Also keep in mind that scale is not a factor really since you can use what ever you want of the miniatures, it's the record sheet that's important.
