Hawk Wargames are continuing to show off some of the miniatures on their way for Dropfleet, recently bringing out the renders for the two alien races contesting for the human home worlds.
The Shaltari are the most technologically advanced of the Dropzone races and this is more than evident in their space ships, as shown in this new cruiser.
The Shaltari have always focused on swift maneuverability, aided by the fun tricks they can get up to with their portal technology. This cruiser, despite being a far larger class of vehicle, keeps to this style, looking thin and streamlined, bristling with cool tech.
The Shaltari are my race of choice for Dropzone, and I fully expect them to be for Dropfleet as well. This almost knife-like design for the cruiser is something I find very promising for the fleet as a whole.
Just ahead of the Shaltari, a Scourge Frigate popped up from Hawk.
Once again, we see the race’s iconic style transferred well into the new system. This time the frigate keeps to the Scourge’s almost organic appearance, with everything looking like it has been made for speed.
Even as scifi aliens go, the Scourge are pretty disturbing, made all the more frightening by how devastating their technology can be. They’re often the faction I’d be most worried about going up against in Dropzone. But I can’t help but think their Dropfleet models are some of the best.
Which faction do you want to side with in Dropfleet?
