Here’s what they had to say on the matter…
“For the past few month, we have been talking to Hawk about handling their logistics. The difficulty of off-site production combined with fulfilling one of the most successful UK wargaming Kickstarters of all time was putting strain on their business.
David Lewis is one of the most talented designers in the industry; he’s made two amazing games and a beautiful range of miniatures to support them. However, as time went on, David found himself spending most of his time running a company and dealing with the fall-out from the Dropfleet Commander Kickstarter.
After discussions on how to best move the business forward into 2018 and beyond, we both came to the conclusion that it would be better for Hawk Wargames to become a part of the TTCombat family.
David is of course staying on as lead designer and will now have his time freed up to do what he does best: design breath-taking miniatures.
The TTCombat team have been working on a range of buildings and accessories which will launch alongside Dropzone Commander 2.0 at Salute in April, and there will be plenty more before then!
We have a lot of moulds that require remaking, so some supplies may be a bit short while we facilitate the transition, so we please ask all the DZC and DFC fans to be patient with us during this time.
If you’ve followed TTCombat in the past, you’ll know that it won’t be long before everything is up and running.”
The team will be making sure Dropfleet Commander Battle Fleets are going to be available as well as that which is outstanding from the existing Kickstarter project.
“The Dropfleet Commander Kickstarter still has some items outstanding, and we at TTCombat will be ensuring that all backers will receive all of their rewards promptly. If we have to make your toys from scratch then we will get pouring resin!
There are also some outstanding vouchers, which of course we will be honouring via the TTCombat webstore.
Once we have organised the stock we have collected from Hawk and got it all listed, you’ll be able to choose from any Dropzone Commander or Dropfleet Commander products, or the full range of TTCombat games, scenery, and accessories!”
Make sure to keep an eye on things as they push forward with this project and give them time to get up to speed.
What do you make of the news?
