Dropzone Commander: Rare But Not Scarce


Something I've been considering lately is rare units.  For being rare, there sure seems to be a lot of them on the table sometimes.  Maybe if rare units were actually rare, we'd see the basic units (from the original book, or just plain non-rare units) come back to the game a bit more.

Inexpensive Hard Case For Your Figs


My wife and I were strolling through Harbor Freight (a chain hardware and tool emporium that might as well be named ACME) when she points at an aluminum tool travel case and says “Could you use that for your armies?”  Kneeling down next to it and feeling the cool, bright aluminum beneath my greedy fingers, “Yes, I could.”

Host to a Xeno-parasite


I actually got to play my new Scourge army a couple of weekends ago.  That was eye-opening!  To have transports that can reach the mid-line on T1 is incredible to me.  I never realized how SLOOOOWwwww PHR are until I started zipping around the table as an alien host.

Resisting the Resistance




by Novus

I've recently had a bad time against the Resistance.  Of all the Dropzone factions, the Resistance are the ones who tend to steamroll me somewhat consistently.  I can play around the Shaltari.  I'm golden vs PHR.  The UCM are not at their most powerful, right now, so dealing with them is not bad.  The Scourge can be dicey, but they aren't crazy powerful at the moment, either.  My problem on the tabletop is definitely the Resistance.

Escalation League - Round One


Dropzone interest has been falling off in my area, lately.  To help combat that trend I decided to organize an escalation league over at Endgame in Oakland to encourage new players.  We had 12 folks signed up, but only 6 showed to play.  Which for a free event, is to be expected.  Unfortunately, 5 of the 6 were our die hard players.

Back From LVO 2017


by Novus

My posting has been few and far between lately.  Mostly because any spare time I had was spent either getting my fleet painted for Dropfleet at LVO or getting product ready for the long drive and subsequent marathon that is the LVO.

Fleet Rumble - Dropfleet Commander Meetup


Last Saturday, the Dropzone guys at Endgame Oakland got together to play some Dropfleet.  We had 11 players show up (The One Who Is Late was late, of course) but only 3 of the 4 factions were represented.

Fall Brawl 2016 Has a Champion!


For organizing my first tournament, it seemed to have gone pretty well. Our local Meta/attendance has dropped off dramatically so I'd hoped to try and breath some life back into the area by hosting a tournament at Endgame in Oakland, CA.
