ClanTroops: The Ugly Cousin.
I never had or played ClanTroops as a kid, so I was not quite sure what to expect. It seems like a very well executed expansion. I will likely not throw Elementals or any of the other optional rules into the mix until after I have played through a few of the BattleTroops Scenarios, just to reacquaint myself with the system. Since using Elementals lowers the unit count even further than standard BattleTroops, however, I am sure I will graduate to it soon. Many of the scenarios seem to require using 'mechs though, which, again, I do not want to integrate until later.
In any case, I figured ClanTroops is an interesting enough find to merit a post of its own, rather than continuing to live in BattleTroops' shadow.
