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.

Special Thanks To

What has been your highlight from the weekend so far?

Second Spot Prize – Ramming Speed

72 Comments

See how things worked out when the Boot Campers got obsessed with ramming speed and going head long into the enemy!

It might mean the death of your ship but you can do some dangerous stuff as you smash into the opponent.

A Civilised Prep Chat With John…

80 Comments

Ben sits down with John to have a think about exactly what he's been up to behind the scenes as he tinkers with a Battleship from the UCM.

Do you think our cultured chatter might be good form for an upcoming airbrush tutorial?

Some Evening Painting Of Fleets

48 Comments

As the evening continues we're painting a few more ships with people out in the quiet area surrounded by tea and coffee.

It's neat to see how the fleets are coming together so nicely with plenty of interesting schemes.

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?

It’s awesome being in the US. I watched Friday’s blog yesterday and was sad that I’d have to wait for today’s, but no! 6 hrs ahead in the UK.

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). 🙂
