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!

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.

Collectors Edition 30mm Scale Ares Battle Walker pre-order

June 3rd, 2014

Hawk Wargames has started taking pre-orders for their new Drop Zone Commander Ares Battle Walker in 30mm scale.

This imposing model is the very first kit in our exciting new Collector’s Edition range. It is a complete 3x scale up and re-working of the original 10mm scale Ares Battle Walker – be sure to check out the gallery for this product, as it illustrates just how much bigger a 3-up is! Although this model makes a fantastic display centrepiece, it is cast from the highest quality tough resin and is more than suitable for gaming, should you wish to use the model for skirmish-based systems.

This finely detailed resin kit is far from a simple scale up. Many new features have been added and most of the original detail has been re-mastered to suit this scale. We have ensured that this kit delivers the level of detail that fans of our DZC range have come to expect. The legs have also been made completely posable – right down to the toes! This makes all sorts of dynamic poses possible, allowing you to make yours truly unique.

Hawk Wargames announcements – Reconquest : Phase 1 DZC Expansion and more

April 18th, 2014

Hawk Wargames  announced the “Reconquest: Phase 1” DZC expansion book.

Reconquest: Phase 1 will advance the storyline of DZC and will introduce a new faction; The Resistance. The book will include full background and army lists for this vibrant and varied faction as well as printed rules for all our new releases and some unseen units for the existing factions. The book will also include many new scenarios, rules and campaign info to add further variation and narrative to your games of DZC. Reconquest: Phase 1 will be available in Summer this year.

They also officially announced their space combat game:

Part of the purpose of building Avenger is as a tangible bridge between Dropzone Commander and our in-development space combat game set in the DZC universe, Dropfleet Commander (working title). For this exciting project, we’ve been working with Andy Chambers on the ruleset, which is currently well into the playtesting phase. There’s a lot more work ahead of us, but expect to hear much more before the end of the year!

Additionally, the 30mm collector’s range will be available soon:

At Salute, we previewed a range of test pieces printed on our own in-house 3D printer (not production quality) as well as a fully fledged and finished resin kit, the 30mm scale PHR Ares Walker. This will be the first kit in our Collector’s Edition range and has been rendered in an extremely high level of detail. The larger scale allowed us to add many new features not seen on the 10mm version as well as a higher number of components. The 30mm Ares’ legs are fully poseable, right down to the individual toes!

This model will be available for pre-order as soon as the production moulds are complete (keep an eye on subsequent newsletters for details). If this kit proves popular, we will expand the range in line with demand!

It is worth mentioning at this point however that we are NOT working on a 30mm scale game at this time. These kits are purely for keen modellers and fans of our regular 10mm scale miniatures.
