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!

July 19, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Dawn of Rebellion, a new sourcebook for the Star Wars Roleplaying Game line.

Dawn of Rebellion is the first sourcebook of its kind, designed to be used alongside any of the three core roleplaying lines. Campaigns using Edge of the EmpireAge of Rebellion, or Force and Destiny—or any combination of the same—will find a wealth of valuable information within its 144 pages. Primarily focusing on the years preceding the Battle of Yavin, Dawn of Rebellion features descriptions, context, and statistics for many of the iconic characters and vehicles appearing in the Star Wars: Rebels television show and in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The might of the Empire is at an unprecedented peak and a successful rebellion seems like a fever dream to all but the most optimistic. Even those who have no personal stake in the Galactic Civil War feel the tremendous impact of this new order.

Allies of Necessity Come to Star Wars TCG

July 10, 2017

Allies of Necessity, the first Force Pack in the Alliances cycle for Star Wars: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games

Chief among the new cards it introduces are its ten new affiliation cards. And just as was the case after the Death Star first unleashed its superlaser upon Jedha City, the galaxy will never again be the same. These affiliation cards don’t just encourage the exploration of new deck archetypes; they reward your exploration with immeasurable power.

While the Force Pack’s eight new objective sets (two copies each of four different sets) each suggest different ways you might explore alliances between your side’s affiliations, these affiliation cards actually mandate those alliances. Then they offer you extra card draw, extra resources, or extra actions.

Star Wars: Armada Wave 6 Available Now!

The sixth wave of expansions for Star Wars: Armada is now available!

Comprised of the Imperial Light Carrier Expansion Pack and the Hammerhead Corvettes Expansion PackArmada Wave VI hits far above its weight class with its surprisingly potent star ships and an array of upgrades focused on close-quarters combat.

Imperial players gain a medium-base ship that elevates their squadron game to new heights, making it easier than ever to wipe out Rebel fighters with your TIE swarms. More than this, the Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier even makes it possible for your TIE swarms to chew through your opponents’ ships’ defenses, leaving them completely vulnerable to the thunderous volleys of lasers and missiles unleashed by your Star Destroyers. And the ship itself is no slouch either; it can even equip and discard a set of Disposable Capacitors to surprise opponents with heavy volleys of red and blue dice from long range.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Cyphers and Masks, a new sourcebook for Spies for the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Roleplaying Game. This 96-page rules supplement comes well stocked with options for players and gamemasters to introduce and enhance the contribution of the clandestine arts in their campaigns.

Far from the battlefields of Hoth and the skies of Yavin, the Rebellion is waging a secret war. While it is not completely free of bloodshed, this war is fought primarily with information, deception, and lies. The spies of the Rebellion infiltrate every facet of Imperial life, working alone or in teams to accomplish feats a traditional soldier could never hope to perform. An imposter at court can sow discord among a feudal planet’s noble houses. A disguised assassin can silence a critical Imperial mouthpiece. An overheard conversation can warn of danger and save the lives of thousands of Rebels. A single data drive can reveal the secret to bringing the Emperor’s greatest achievement to ruin.
