After all the dithering, I've backed too. I've gone for the starter set enabling me to thematically play everyone without treading on toes - it seemed like I get a lot of extra stuff for £15 more. It also means that the free ship exchange should be much neater, and multiplayer games might make a degree of sense.

What I like is that customiseable nature of the kits means that my UCM are unlikely to be exactly the same as Pete's, and my Scourge should differ from Mike's.

Also good! I'm quite tempted by the space station set. Will see about that closer to the end I think.

The thing about the extra stuff, from what I understood from the video i watched, is thqat stuff after the KS shouldn't cost any more/less. It was more about the funding to get the molds for the plastic kits.

So space stations etc are a later priority for me. I'll only look at KS exclusive stuff.

Theres some painted Cheatari up on the KS page now. Boy do they look fiddly to paint!

In addition to their inevitably chesty rules, the Cheatari get more stuff in their box than other factions. Admittedly the small round things are unlikely to be actual fighting ships, but it's still an extra three things...that's a bit cheaty. Smile

They're void gates, for deploying troops to the surface, apparently. According to the update they work best with a mothership.

The PHR stuff looks like Whales with underbites... Ha!

I thought they looked like hair straighteners...

I thought they looked like xenomorphs, but that's obviously too cool, so hair straighteners with underbites it is.

Heh, what do you think the average t shirt size will need to be?

So they posted more details of the activation cards... just enough detail in fact to convince me not to bother getting them! I thought they'd be more worthwhile than they really are.

Yeah, i think they realised the cards worked well in DZC but couldn't come up with a decent use in this

Anybody getting a Battlecruiser?

View user profile http://maddogandenglishmen.forumotion.co.uk

66 Re: Dropfleet Commander on Thu Nov 26, 2015 7:39 am

Probably! Be nice to have an exclusive model, and its only £14!

Think i'll add that, and one of the maps on.

67 Re: Dropfleet Commander on Fri Nov 27, 2015 4:51 am

Yeah, definitely getting that, since it's an exclusive, and otherwise Pete will win with his.

I'm toying with dropping my pledge to a single army and getting one. Although it will bugger up the swapping party. But getting two starts to be a bit daft in terms of cost.

Everyone going for a battle cruiser then? Upped our pledge today to include them. May add one of the battle mats, or a set of them

In yesterday's update they said the cruise liner will be available as a bolt on too. Will almost certainly get that. One for Kieron to get and arm as resistance!

I'm probably not going to get a Battlecruiser. However, I'm definitely considering swapping or selling one of my fleets to facilitate getting more stuff (for example, there's a guy I know from BMG events who's wanting to swap his Scourge for UCM). There's no way I can keep up with the arms race with two fleets - I have enough trouble with that with the Resistance.

The cruise liner is apparently a scenario piece and the stat line will be freely available, so technically you could use anything for it. I have a couple of models that might work, depending on size.

Think Matts getting the cruise liner anyway

73 Re: Dropfleet Commander on Sat Nov 28, 2015 9:40 pm

Give everyone money to add an extra.cruise liner to their pledge, assemble them all differently and proxy UCM rules for a Resistance fleet. Repurposed civilian vehicles are how they roll after all... And it would look good!

It's a bit like watching a crap soap opera with Kieron on this thread!

Will he back it? Won't he?
Which army will he pick?
How many times has he changed his pledge?
Will he go to the right house?!

Tune in for today's mildly schizophrenic episode!
