1 Dropzone Commander! on Tue Mar 03, 2015 3:32 am

So, we played and it's pretty good! Speed (and remembering the mission) are more important than in most other games I've played. The whole system is very dependant on keeping mobility (as Pete discovered in the endgame) and the back and forth action every turn flowed really well in our game.

Should have taken photos really.

Anyway, we'll be having another Crack Wednesday night so more opinions to follow...

Yes! What he said! Mission is most important, as well as remembering only AA stuff can shoot aircraft!

You playing this at the usual 7pm on Wednesday night? I'd like to pop along for a look if that's alright.

I got a bit excited here and forgot that the reason I didn't say I'd turn up tonight at the weekend was because I have to get up at 5 to catch a train to London tomorrow. So I'll give it a miss tonight. Let us know how you get on though! I'm increasingly tempted to pop into the Outpost and buy some stuff.

I'm tempted to send you in for stuff too! They're the cheapest I can find if you don't include the postage, but you can order stuff to be picked up in store...

Let me know if you order stuff, I can always pick it up on Friday and bring it with me Sunday. Plus if I'm getting stuff for you might as well get stuff for myself...

You don't need the Rulebook. I'm getting it. You'll be playing me.

Oh...and the rumour is that they're putting the new rulebook online for free too.

It's available for free now. Download that version and I'll tell you the stuff that's different in the real one if they don't make it available. There won't be many changes.

I have the current one already, so I'd have a clue if Vornie pays attention to my birthday suggestions

You missed out Wes!

I think I know how my army works now, in as much as I know how to neutralise Pete's anyway. Commanders aren't the "game-changers" I expected either, both were more threat than actual contributors in the game where we used them.

Happy to have taken the plunge though!

Yes, 2 good games, same objectives but both games were completely different. Won 1 each.

Unfortunately Mike has cheated by working out how best to use his army quite early on.

Need to buy some new stuff!

Just wait till I get some prowlers! Can't wait to squirtle plasma in your crew compartments!

Wes, that's a free army builder. They released an errata a day or so ago that altered some points a bit but this is up to date

Who won last night? Are we still enjoying it? Is Pete complaining about your unfair army yet Mike?

I won! Again! Really enjoying it. Different mission last night, worked differently. Mikes army is fine, he just sucks at wargames!

22 Re: Dropzone Commander! on Sun Mar 15, 2015 2:13 am

Its true, he won. And he didn't cheat this time either!
I was lacking in infantry and the mission outplayed me. Two bombs!! Two!

But yeah, still loving it, and still learning new things so it's all good...

Thought Kieron would appreciate this, if you're tempted it seems like quite a durable battlemat...
