At the end of August I posted some of the hints and tidbits Hawk Wargames had been dropping for their upcoming space game, Dropfleet Commander. Over three months and one very successful Kickstarter later, and we are that much closer to the final product hitting the shelves!
Here is a link to the Kickstarter page - just don't read the comments section.
|The UCM Starter Fleet|
|The Scourge Starter Fleet|
|The Shaltari Starter Fleet|
|The USM fleet - fantastic looking ships very reminiscent of the Sulaco from Aliens|
|The Scourge ships - sleek and deadly, but I will need something to differentiate the different classes!|
|The Shaltari fleet in profile - spiky jewellery!|
|The Battlecruisers in profile|
|The Avalon-class Battlecruiser is subtly different to the Atlantis-class Battlecruiser, featuring a different weapon along the underslung mounting. I like that they already have so many different loadouts and classes!|
|The Scourge Battlecruiser looks decidedly aggressive|
|I'm not a huge fan of the Shaltari aesthetic, but this is a lovely ship|
|The Leonidas-class Battlecruiser is packed to the gills with broadside batteries!|
|Interceptors, bombers, troop transports and even huge torpedoes, the Launch Assets set gives the fleet all they need|
|Launch Assets look great alongside the larger vessels|
The PHR fleet has not been fully revealed yet, but they might be my favourites, underbite and all. I love the sleek hulls combined with the rows upon rows of broadsides, their their beautiful propulsion systems.
|Kickstarter Exclusive - a giant Ajax-class Cruiser. I am very tempted by this one, and run it as a Battleship or Dreadnought|
|The smaller PHR vessels are sleek, matching the aesthetic of the larger vessels|
|Some of the ships have very large "underbites" but I think it looks great|
|Like the Scourge, the PHR exhibit natural feel to their ships - like fish rather than buildings in space|
|The Commodore Pledge Level includes even more than this by now, as the last stages of Kickstarter saw even more extras|
Now the long wait begins...
Thanks for reading,
