Dropfleet Commander Boot Camp – Saturday

Dropfleet Commander Boot Camp – Saturday

Supported by (Turn Off)

We're now getting stuck into some more gaming for Dropfleet Commander at the Boot Camp this weekend. Hawk Wargames have some neat ways for folks to get stuck into the game and we'll be following along as the Boot Campers learn the tactics and techniques needed to survive.

Comment To Win Awesome Goodies This Weekend!

It will be interesting to see how these first battles play out as we look at some simple scenarios and learn the rules. Of course, there's much more to come too so keep an eye on things as they develop throughout the day.

Admirals Diving Into Their Games

With a bit of rules chatter out of the way we're getting stuck into some proper games now as folks learn about the basic mechanics of their fleet with an introductory scenario.

We'll be chatting with some of the folks we caught up with yesterday and then will find out how their first games went!

Food Arrives! A Hot Dog Dropfleet Break!

Food has arrived and Mother Justin is making sure everyone is fed and watered with some rather awesome looking hotdogs and chips.

Yes, we're aware there's still not as much colour here but we do have Lance's fruit stand as well! No scurvy here!

Until we do reveal our plans make sure to get commenting below with what you think we're up to!

A Teaser For What's Ahead...

The PikaHR Of Dropfleet Commander

89 Comments

We said there would be a price. It seems like when victory was given to Justin Andy decided to give his ships a make over and now this Pikaship is beginning to find its way into all manner of situations.

Is this heresy or awesome in ship form?

Gaming Begins In Earnest

43 Comments

We get stuck into some more gaming this evening as the Boot Campers are really getting to grips with some new rules and working together on tactics and tips for their games.

It seems like folks are starting to learn more about how it all works and the fluid nature of the game is coming to life.

The Big Game Continues...

49 Comments

We're looking at the game as it continues to power on. Ships are moving into position and space stations are getting blown up.

A lot of assets are also hitting the tabletop and trying to harry other larger ships. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out as the PHR are focusing in on some tactics through mutters and whispers!

I should have driven up to Coleraine and banged pots and pans loudly from 06:00 and screamed ‘The Scourge are coming!’

So what other game would people compare this too?

It shares a lot with other large space fleet games such as StarWars Armada and GW BattleField Gothic. The difference being the orbital nature of the game and the objective taking.

But it is also very different.
The fact that you don’t have fixed ranges for weapons do change the game a lot, compared to BFG.
So this do have some elements of Submarine games/sims… since your actions do have a huge impact on how close the enemy need to be able to target you.

Loving the look for the entire game 😀 . I don’t know what fleet i would go with, they all look so good.

Looks like a combination of Leviathan and Battlefleet Gothic.

Let battles commence… Shortly!
Still getting my head around force organisation to sort out which variants to build.. Groups/tonnage groups then battlegroups.
E.g. If a Cruiser is G:1-2, do those two cruisers have to share the same class or just the same tonnage group?

The yellow ship going across the screen had me laughing so hard..

Curse my bank account! Why do I have no money then a bootcamp is announced? It looks so much fun. I am determined to get to a bootcamp with my wife (and I will apologise in advance for the poor sods who play against her… She can be soooo vicious in wargaming). Hope all have a great weekend (by the looks of it, Im sure you all will). 🙂
