It's time to follow along as these captains begin getting their vessels ready for war and maybe we'll even see the first few games getting played too, later on tonight.

We're kicking off here at the Dropfleet Commander Boot Camp alongside Hawk Wargames, and as the members get stuck into their models we're seeing people building and even considering painting their models too!

Our Lovely Display Table!

One of the things we always try and do is put together a display board. In this case we took one of the mats from Deep-Cut Studio and then whacked Warren's massive Space Station on top of it.

You can see some of the ships floating around this mighty space station here in the images below. The question is, what kind of game are we going to put together featuring this?

What would you plan?

Justin’s PHR Fleet (Banana Fleet)

106 Comments

Justin has actually got some time to get involved with this particular Boot Camp. So, he picked up the PHR Fleet and has been gleefully putting it together.

He also has some plans for the paint scheme but some of us think it might make them look like a bunch of space bananas!

I’m hyped for the event. Just got my starterbox and I’m looking forward to see what you guys are doing while I paint my lovely scourge vessels.
btw Is there a plan where we can see what will happen over the weekend?

hmmm still waiting for my KS Stuff und I see here a lot of painted fleets and a lot of Space Station.
No more support for Hawk KS from mine side, next time I wait for retail, because you get it faster than from a Hawk Wargaming Kichstarter.

Agreed, I’m pretty salty about not having my Commodore rewards yet. Seeing the pop up store kind of pisses me off.

That being said, looks like a great weekend. Hope you guys have a blast!

Yeah its unfortunate how long it takes. I just got my stuff this Weds (commodore level same as dahob). Retail is definitely faster but it will come. Have faith.

Very jealous of the participants….have a great time.
BTW, the clear base on the ‘Monster-Station’ looks great! I’m thinking custom clear bases for all the ships might be a cool idea!

Ah, wish I was there. Have a great time everyone! And where the fudge has Justin’s beard gone? Only yesterday he said he was keeping it. Enquiring minds need to know!

Somone needs to houserule rules for the resistance, let them start on the ground, give them lots of atmo craft, then they launch boarding actions up to orbit and use space stations. Somewhat reversing the way the game would play out.

Yeah, I’d love to see the resistance addded.

Yeah. Something very early on. Dave said they don’t have space faring capabilities. But that could always change.

Great idea. They would make great boarding teams.

I’d have no problem with a house rule for something like that on a one off, but I sincerely hope Hawk don’t add the Resistance to the game itself as it sort of goes against the background.

These are people who don’t have access to that sort of technology generally. I think the best way to incorporate the Resistance is to have them act on the ground targets in some way. If there are command cards similar to DZC then they could be incorporated in that way – as a bonus on ground assaults.

I think I’ll enjoy this weekend, really must try not to fall too far behind on the videos this time though. It’s much more fun to watch as they come on than cram them on Sunday night.
