One of my favourite games of the last few years has been Dropzone Commander this game is pretty straight forward to play, easy to get into and the starter sets for all Armies are nicely balanced whi you start adding them up, and with a faction for everybody.
So to reboot my playing time with DZC I am talking a look at the races available starting with the Scourge.
So Invasion 2016 is underway at the moment. Here we have a selection of previews that have surfaced on Facebook
Using the power of Salute to chat to the guys on the Hawk Wargames Stand I have completed building my first 1500 point list for Dropzone Commander, so I now have 1500 points worth to build paint and play test and name.
Well the stand was busy everytime I walked past it, Andy Chambers escaped me everytime I tried to talk to him about the new upcoming game (to be released q4 2015 q1 2016), that much I did manage to find out the massive starship was there again this year, if you havent seen it you really must no photo is ever going to do that model justice.
Hawk Wargames have released images off thier next scenic pack. Slated for release at the end off the month.
So in conjuction with Hawk Wargames I present.
The underground hanger. I wonder if the doors are positional? But just incase you were wondering how big the hanger is, we have another picture.
Looks like condors can get through it with ease. Possibly a few at a time. So for £40 your getting a nice big scenic piece that will look awesome and hopefully disrupt some LOS for your opponent.
Underground hangars are an extremely common feature on both the Cradle Worlds and the Colonies. Their primary purpose is to protect and store military assets beneath hundreds of feet of solid rock in much the same way as the concealed submarine bases of the 20th Century. In the past, these installations were built primarily to preserve the beauty of the Cradle Worlds from defilement by unsightly military structures. In the war-torn 27th Century, they are built by the UCM for their excellent defensive capabilities and to protect their personnel from harsh surface environments.
These installations usually feature large mechanical apertures which open these cavernous spaces to the surface, allowing aerial assets to strike forth or reach safety. Although these are large structures in themselves, they are merely a visible clue to the vast complex of hangars, storage facilities and living quarters lurking beneath the surface.
The gateways to the subterranean world have often been the focus for bloody battles during the Reconquest, as they can be choke points, supply gateways, entrances and escape routes to both enemy and friendly forces, depending on the mission and who has control of these crucial structures.
New scenarios to be used with this model will be coming soon. Although I for one am hoping if your enemy drives over it you can open it and send their squad smashing down to the bottom off a large cavern.
Last night I took part in my first demonstration game of dropzone Commander. Needless to say as in all demo games I have played I won, unfortunately this doesnt translate into wins after I have the game myself, dont know how that works.
Playing as the bad guys for a change was quite liberating and apparently I have a devious underhanded mind when it comes to tactics. Needless to say this game has jumped up on my wishlist having seen some of the miniatures available.
So its nearly the weekend what are your plans for world domination?
