Hawk Wargames have given us a little of their thinking behind the contents of their Dropfleet Commander Starter Box which will be available through the Kickstarter. Here’s what they’re saying could well be the contents of the UCM and Scourge based Two Player Starter Set…
- The Full Dropfleet Commander Rulebook, and Fast Play Sheets,
- UCM and Scourge Frigate and Cruiser Sprues, (with construction guides),
- Innovative Dropfleet Commander flight stands,
- Double sided fold out map,
- City markers,
- Token sheet,
- Tapemeasure and Dice
There will also be single fleet choices for both the Scourge and UCM alongside the new Rulebook for the game. The Shaltari are also primed to be an upcoming stretch goal in the campaign and they hope to bring us a plastic fleet to match up against the UCM and Scourge.
Rules-wise the Shaltari will have lower signatures than other ships, making them harder to hit, and when they are struck at they will have the ability to ‘Raise Shields’ but this makes them a rather bright target on the tabletop for other ships.
What do you think?
