DropZone Commander – Painting Plog PHR & UCM.

On my regular search for all things miniatures I got an email from Beasts of War (BOW) about some of the DropZone Commander miniatures being painted: http://www.beastsofwar.com/groups/dropzone-commander-painting-plog/forum/topic/the-post-human-republic-by-avicenna/.

Here are some pictures :


DropZone Commander – Delay and New images

Official word from Dave over at Hawk Game is a short delay, here is the press release:

Press release: For immediate release

Hi everyone!

I know this is something no one wants to hear, but we need to delay the launch of the full Hawk Wargames site by 7 days. This is due to a number of reasons (not all bad though!):

– Final assembly of the site is taking a little longer than expected, since we’re working on extra content.

– We’ve been making several improvements to our line after user feedback, as well as adding extra army deals (There will be three for each race).

– Simply keeping up with the overwhelming response from Salute has taken a while, but this is no bad thing!

We’re working our hearts out to ensure that the site does not disappoint. Hopefully you’ll agree that taking the time to get it right was worth the wait when you see it!

The site will now open for Dropzone Commander pre-orders on June 8th, to ship July 23rd (since this delay has a knock-on effect to our schedule). In the meantime, the daily previews will keep coming!

Thanks for your patience and apologies for the short delay,

Dave Lewis

This is sad news, I would liked to have given you some info on releases and prices shortly but it looks like there will be a short delay. To make up for it here is some nice new images:

DropZone Commander – PHR Taranis Multiple Launch Rocket System

The M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System is an armoured, self-propelled, multiple rocket launcher; a type of rocket artillery. Delivering an awesome payload of varied munitions over a wide area at extreme distances. I first got to see this fire power in the first Gulf War and thought it would be great on the table top. Said to be so powerful a battery of them could effectively wipe out an entire armoured battalion. Built as a joint venture by the UK, USA, France and Germany it’s real power lay in its guided munitions options and its 40+ mile range.

So when I was at Salute and looking at the jaw dropping DropZone Commander line in the glass cabinet and I saw what I now know as the PHR Taranis Multiple Launch Rocket System, I thought, I have to have one of those, no two, three argh! It was another tick in the box for me on picking PHR as my go to faction πŸ™‚

Now David’s version of this system has the smooth sleek lines true to his consistent style for the whole range and the spookiness of a no driver view of an autonomous weapon system. Awesome πŸ™‚

You may notice that the Taranis has 13 rockets, unlucky for some!
