For all my misgivings about Kickstarter and the horror of backing Alien Versus Predator, I have fallen to flashy advertising, pretty pictures and awesome stretch goals for the new game by Hawk Wargames - Dropfleet Commander. Here's a direct link to the Kickstarter.

Dropfleet Commander promises to be somewhat different as well, set in close orbit with battlefields that show the surface of a single world rather than a huge starscape. Information about the game is intriguing, but still fairly light, even though I heard the designer himself speaking at Autumn Invasion about it. The miniatures alone sold me on the game, and as the Kickstarter plays out, we see more and more pictures with greater detail and more information. It looks mouth-watering to me.

|Kickstarter-exclusive Battle Cruiser, with others for the other Factions on the way|
|The Shaltari have been unlocked and will be on offer|
