Hawk Wargames Announces Dropzone Commander 2nd Edition

July 24, 2017

Hawk Wargames is excited to announce Dropzone Commander: 2nd Edition!

The current Dropzone Commander system is highly regarded and we are working on bringing you a new edition that retains its excellent core mechanics whilst improving many aspects to reflect warfare in the 27th Century.

We are in the stages of alpha testing the proposed changes and a closed beta will also take place with our Hawk Talon scheme. We expect a release in Q4 2017 with a release date announced closer to the time.

2nd Edition will bring balance to existing units and enhance a player’s collection, not invalidate it. We want every unit to be playable. New units are in development which will be previewed over the next few months.

Beasts of War have interviewed Dave and they will have a video for you on Monday with more details including proposed changes and even more new artwork, including this incredible Archangel squadron!

Litko introduces new Dropzone Commander accessories

September 29th, 2014

Litko will be helping Dropozone Commander players upgrade their game soon with a new line of gaming accessories compatible with the popular miniature wargame. The line will include Tactical flight bases which have the firing arcs laser etched into them, Blast/LZ Templates, Goal Oriented scenario tokens, Building Damage markers, and Faction specific activation tokens.

Working directly from gamer feedback, Litko has made each blast template to incorporate all firing arcs and center cuts to fit around the flight stand pole for perfect centering on flying models. The Goal oriented tokens will include the proportionate number of double-sided Possible and Revealed Objective tokens for both Objective scenario types. Over-sized and reverse etched for high visibility, the Building Markers won’t ever be overlooked across war-torn skylines. Each faction specific token set strikingly features a unique icon and color for activation tokens along with Forward Air Controller tokens for your forces.

Hawk Wargames taking pre-orders for Resistance faction

August 12th, 2014

Hawk Wargames is now taking orders for their newest Dropzone Commander faction, the Resistance.

The Resistance is a complex, characterful and disparate assortment of human survivors on the Cradle Worlds and Earth itself, currently occupied by the dreaded alien Scourge. The very existence of the Resistance has shaped UCM military planning for its Reconquest, which became a war of liberation rather than simply a war of revenge as soon as they were discovered. Indeed, the Resistance alone are responsible for a reconquest being possible at all, as they were able to activate and maintain foldspace nodes on all but one of the Cradle Worlds, allowing UCM invasion fleets to jump to their locations accurately. Theirs is a tale of loss, grit and determination to survive in the face of insurmountable odds.
