Dropfleet Commander on Kickstarter
Hawk Wargames has their new miniatures game, Dropfleet Commander up on Kickstarter. It’s an orbital space combat game set in the Dropzone Commander Universe. It’s designed by Andy Chambers (Battlefleet Gothic, Warhammer 40,000) and David Lewis (Dropzone Commander).
Players command destructive fleets of void capable ships and battle for control of planets, fighting for the future of mankind itself!
There are a bunch of pledge levels available including a 2 player starter set. That starter set contains 2 fleets, one for the United Colonies of Mankind and the Scourge. Other fleets will become available as extra purchases if they are unlocked through stretch goals. The campaign has already been funded and looks set to reach a number of the stretch goals. Estimated delivery is June 2016 and pledges start at £45 with the starter set costing £60. You can check out the Kickstarter project here.
Starter Set Contents
The 2 player starter box contains everything you’ll need for a game of Dropfleet Commander. Here’s what you get:
- 7 plastic ship miniatures for each of the Factions
- Including: 6 Cruisers, 4 Frigates and 4 Fleet Carriers (UCM and Scourge) . These have multiple possible ship variations, and integrated-dial bases.
- A full sized (A4 Landscape) Rulebook
- A full colour 4ft x 3ft (approx.) gaming mat
- Cluster Development Pack
- Token Sets for each race
- Dice and a tape measure
The models look great and hopefully we can get a few more fleets unlocked through the stretch goals.
