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!

Two Weeks to go!


I understand that some folks might be bored stupid by the amount of stuff we’ve had showcasing Hawk Wargames’ incoming DropZone Commander offering. However, as I was sitting here in a typical Friday afternoon waiting for beer o’clock stupor it occurred to me that there are only two weeks left until the pre-orders go live!

As I’ve been considering what I want to spent my miniatures budget on when I get paid next week I may have to hold out to see what’s on the horizon for our current major interest.

Are you eagerly awaiting more details of the latest in 10mm sci-fi? Let us know which faction you find the most interesting!

DropZone Commander – Scourge Desolator


Today we have the Scourge Desolator “Armed with the deadly and indiscriminate Ion Storm Generator super weapon! Beware of friendly fire!” From David at Hawk Wargames

Well no guesses on what I think this looks like, lets not mention the popular sci-fi game, but there are differences and I love the whole concept of them anyway so I’m good. Plus nothing like a great looking squid based sci-fi ship to fly around a battlefield decimating the enemy! πŸ™‚
