The Basics Of Dropfleet Commander

119 Comments

Here Dave and Darren from Hawk Wargames take you though the basics of Dropfleet Commander with a few sample turns looking at movement, firing and some of the more technical aspects of battling on the tabletop.

We'll be diving into more detail as the weekend progresses but this gets everyone up to speed for their first game.

Fair play to the guys from hawk war games that’s a long time to talk about these scenarios. I’m loving this video.

Oh! an idea stroke me! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a campaign mode like bloodbowl?
i Mean to allocate resources, spy on enemies, build new ships, scavenge, train… and so on?

That’s the point of the bootcamp, plenty of toys and the guys who show you how to use them.

But not always the main man like Dave, but with the size of Hawkwargames there is not many others that are not stuck in the warehouse packing. ..

watching the basics makes me think this will finally scratch my itch of a good space fleet game

I just want the PDF of the rule book, this is turning into the best space tabletop miniature wargame.

I think it is fair to say that if Carlsberg make spaceship games, this would be the one

Thought of the day: having the point defence of a battleship with Aegis support doesn’t mean a thing if you cant roll 5+…

Same goes for any weapon needing a 2+ to hit. 1’s seem very common all of the suddon…

got to love the engagement in “local” content from Hawk. I have to lure him to Denmark to show me the game 😉

Du skal da bare ta’ til Colraine eller Croydon – I can recommend the Hawkwargames open day (and the Invasion Tournament )

If I can’t read the rule book yet I can at least learn through the wonders of videos!

Well Dave needs to play his own game more I see! 😉

He needs to do that for all of his games. He needs to play with the more experienced players to get a real feel

rasmus

That would mean that he can’t CAD up some new toys for us

I am so sold on this game. Hawk has really outdone themselves. Thank you BoW for putting in all this work to bring us (those that can not be there) into the Boot Camp.
