Dropfleet Commander Boot Camp – Sunday

Dropfleet Commander Boot Camp – Sunday

Supported by (Turn Off)

As we move towards the final day of the Dropfleet Commander Boot Camp we're getting to check out some bigger games, some more in-depth tactical talk, and much more besides as we get these fleets ready for the tabletop once again thanks to Hawk Wargames.

Comment To Win Awesome Goodies This Weekend!

It's been an utter blast so far and it's been fun seeing how the Boot Campers have been getting stuck into their fleets and exploring the possibilities open to them. Of course big games go a long way towards making things epic too.
