Set Condition One: Reinforcements Inbound 

A number of months ago TTcombat released experimental rules for a new class of ship useable for 2 factions in Dropfleet Commander (UCM and the PHR factions).

Myself and others threw money together to avail of their free shipping offer at the time and ordered a bunch of stuff. Personally I got my self 2 of the new Centurion Cruisers and the Command Cards for my UCM fleet.

I’ve a large backlog of mini’s of the minute so it has taken me a while to getting them painted up.

I love the design aesthetics and fluff behind the Centurion and can’t wait till I get a chance to put them on the table.

Until next time, I’ll see you at the table.

Set Condition One: Dropzone Commander and Dropfleet Commander


A few months ago, it was announced that Hawk Wargames, the company responsible for the excellent games of Dropzone Commander and Dropfleet Commander, was purchased by TTCombat.

This took a lot of people by surprise, especially considering that Hawk Wargames was still in the process of fulfilling orders from their successful Kickstarter for Dropfleet Commander.

To TTCombats credit, they have, and are working hard to finalise the shipping of all product to Kickstarter backers.

And as of Friday just gone, they have launched both product lines of Dropzone Commander and Dropfleet Commander on their Website.

In celebration of this, TTcombat are offering till Sunday Febuary 4th, free shipping on orders over £100, and have made available all of Hawk Wargames past and present (we’ll get to this one in a bit) show exclusive models, Preoders for Famous Commanders from Dropzone Commanders Reconquest Phase 2 Book, and the Kickstarter Exclusive models from Dropfleet Commander.
I’ve thrown together images of the preorders, show exclusives, and Kickstarter exclusives for you to have a look at.

Myself and a few others have gone in together to order some things. Myself personally I wanted the new ship for Dropfleet Commander.

Fluff wise it’s one of the few remaining types of cruiser that escaped the Scourge Invasion of earth.

Well until next time, I’ll see you athe table.

Dropfleet Commander – Battlegroup Typhon, Task Force Theta 

So a few months ago I received my Kickstarter pledge for Dropfleet Commander from Hawk Wargames, and shame on me I’ve been letting my fleet sit in space dock.
But no more, we’re pulling the Fleet out of mothballs and powering up the main reactors.

It’s taken a couple of days but I’ve finished magnetising my UCM cruisers. Currently Battlegroup Typhon, Taskforce Theta consists of:

• 1 Avalon class Battlecruiser 

• 2 Heavy Cruisers chassis 

• 2 Cruisers chassis 

• 2 Saratoga Class light cruisers 

• 8 Frigate chassis 

I’ve been lacking in games so far (with only about 2 under my belt), all the games I’ve played so far have be at the Skirmish level (lists up to 999 points).
The last game I played I used the following list:

————————————–Ucm 1000 – 981pts

UCM – 3 launch assets
SR12 Vanguard battlegroup (241pts)

1 x Moscow – 163pts – H

2 x Taipei – 78pts – L

SR12 Line battlegroup (250pts)

2 x New Cairo – 176pts – M

2 x Lima – 74pts – L

SR8 Line battlegroup (228pts)

2 x New Orleans – 64pts – L

1 x Seattle – 132pts – M

   + UCM Captain (20pts, 2AV)

1 x New Orleans – 32pts – L

SR11 Pathfinder battlegroup (242pts)

2 x Rio – 210pts – M

1 x New Orleans – 32pts – L

————- dflist.com ————- 


For a tournament level (Clash level) list of 1250 pts I have the Avalon Battlecruiser and an unbuilt cruiser and frigate sprue, as well as the ships meantioned earlier for me to play with to get me up to the 1250 pts level.


Out of the remaining Cruiser and Frigate sprue I have I cant decide what to build. Do I want an extra Seattle class carrier, or another Rio class cruiser, or even a San Fransico from the Cruiser sprue? And for the Frigate sprue do I want more Strike Cruisers or Attack Frigates? Currently I’m thinking of adding 1 Strike Cruiser and 3 of the Attack Frigate chassis.
Ahh hell, I think I’ll just magnetise the lot and be done with it.

If you happen to have a 1250 pts UCM list, why not share with myself so I can give it a whirl.

Until next time, I’ll see you at the table.
