Dropzone Commander


Dropfleet Commander First Impressions

I didn’t really mention it much and we don’t talk much about Kickstarters and what we are backing on the show, but I backed the Dropfleet Commander one and it has recently made it to my door! If you don’t know what Dropfleet Commander is, it’s a space ship miniatures game intended to similulate fleet actions attempting to land assets on planetary locations for the purpose of defending or retaking planets. The game is by Hawk Wargames and their other big game, Dropzone Commander, is a 10 mm combined infantry/land/air assets attempting to retake stretegic locations within a small area of a planet.

Gen Con 2016 in Photos

Gen Con 2016 was great and I had a blast. This year was the busiest year that I have ever had with three True Dungeon runs, seminars, hobby events, and other craziness. My biggest three highlights for the show were:

  1. Going in with the rush at the opening of the vendor hall and buying the new Malifaux Crew Box, The Queen Returns for Neverborn.
  2. Doing the Hirst Arts resin casting class. Short and fast, but I learned so much about resin casting. Both safety tips and product tips.
  3. Being a part of the Infinity Seminar for what’s new that was done on Saturday and then walking away with a model for free. I had no idea how cool the seminar would be and actually walked out of their pumped about my PanOceania troops (which then got me to buy more models…..hmmmm…I see what they did there!!! Hahaha)

So we’ll be talking about this on the show I am sure, but in the mean time here are a ton of really quality pictures to tie you over!!!

Episode 63: All Over the Place

Episode 63

We are all over the place on this one with lots of things we want to talk about and just not enough time to get it all in. Yeah, we probably should have just gotten together sooner, but that bum Conesy had to have a little surgery in there that stalled things out for a bit.

In this episode, our hosts discuss Dreadball by Mantic Games, touch on Dropzone Commander by Hawk Wargames, catch up on some big Warhammer news, movies, campaign wrap up and even some listener questions at the end. Yeah, there’s a lot of stuff packed into this episode.

By the way, as promised, here is the link to the campaign that was just run here in Madison at Pegasus Games. Overall, as you’ll here, we all had a good time with it and it was laid out well to go with our pick up games on regular game night.

Game Review: Dropzone Commander

At Adepticon this year, I decided to go all in and purchased a VIG badge. Largely this was to get the extra swag, and boy was there extra swag to be had. One of the extra items was a United Colonies of Man (UCM) starter box for Dropzone Commander. After sitting there for a couple of months, I was just looking for something else to work on. Popped on a couple of YouTube videos of a couple of the free games I received at Adepticon and was intrigued by this game. What the heck, time to start putting it together!

What I realize, as I do with a lot of games, was that the best chance I was going to have to get other people to play is if I have enough stuff to run some intro games. Looking at the deals out there, it seemed best to pick up the 2 player starter set so I would also have a copy of the rules. As pictured above, this is the full contents of the 2 player starter, which is a lot of stuff including the terrain.
