Games Workshop aren’t the only ones running a little pre-Christmas advent calendar.
Hawk Wargames – the minds behind Dropzone Commander – are doing one as well, releasing teaser-images for a host of new miniatures that will be revealed around Christmas.
I briefly dabbled in Dropzone Commander, though I admittedly haven’t played it since. The one thing that does keep my looking in its direction are clearly the cool miniature designs.
Have a look!
#1 – UCM – Weaponised Condor
UCM preview. A weaponised Condor for the UCM with missile pods and railguns.
#2 – Shaltari – Anti-Grav Tank
Shaltari preview. A heavy skimmer for the Shaltari with long-range anti-tank weaponry.
#4 – Sourge – Assault Dropship
#4 – PHR – Anti-Aircraft Skimmer
PHR preview. A new Support choice anti-air skimmer for the PHR.
#5 – Thoughts
Plenty more renders on Hawk Wargames’ Facebook page, if these whetted your appetite.
I like the fact that Hawk Wargames appear to be mixing things up a bit – pure gunship flyers, heavy-duty Shaltari-tanks, etc…
If I found one thing odd about Dropzone Commander it was that it felt too symmetrical, too balanced, in ways that didn’t give the factions (especially the two human ones) the differentiation to truly “feel” like their own thing.
Hopefully a greater choice of (awesome-looking) units can break things up a bit.
What do you think of these concepts?
- Do you play Dropzone Commander?
- Would any of the concepts above (turned into miniatures) tempt you into the game?
- Or do they leave you cold?
