Dropfleet Commander Rulebook **PRE-ORDER 14th OCT** – £10.00

The year is 2673.
160 years ago humanity was evicted from their home, invaded by the terrifying Scourge. A parasitic race determined to capture or kill every living being, they overwhelmed mankind’s defences.
Humanity escaped to the Colonies, abandoning Earth and the Cradle Worlds to their attackers. Now the United Colonies of Mankind have come back, fighting a bitter war for their home known as the Reconquest. They are beset on all sides not just from the Scourge, but the ancient alien Shaltari, the abandonists of the Post-Human Republic, and even on occupied worlds by the embittered Resistance.

Dropfleet Commander is a game of planet-bound fleet combat in the far future. Command fleets of colossal warships, unleash strike craft and deploy your ground forces in strategic naval battles above a war-torn planet.

Seizing ground and space objectives wins games, but a fierce tactical acumen is needed to act and react to your opponents moves. Predicting the flow of battle and directing your ships to counter your opponents and ensure the safe deployment of ground assets is key.

Written by Andy Chambers, David J Lewis, Scott Burns and Lewis Clarke, this 64 page rulebook contains the 1.5 version rules. With everything you need to deploy your forces, including scenarios to play and help building your fleet for games. Take your battles into low orbit and and help (or stop) the Reconquest!

TTC UCM Titania Cruisers 1 TTC UCM Titania Cruisers 2 TTC UCM Titania Cruisers 3 TTC UCM Titania Cruisers 4 TTC UCM Titania Cruisers 5 TTC UCM Titania Cruisers 6

UCM Titania Cruisers **PRE-ORDER 14th OCT** – Regular price £22.00

Due to the attrition the UCMF suffered during the Battle for Earth, several manufacturers have gained lucrative military contracts. The Titania Aerospace Corporation continues to innovate and is now capable of producing small quantities of combat capable cruisers.

The Titania New Rio and New Berlin (named after the cities on Titania) are the product of the newly operating Titania Fleet Systems. It’s two flagship cruisers are optimisations on already existing designs, the Rio and Berlin. Matching their combat performance blow for blow, the Titania variants offer a greater operational lifetime, reducing time spent undergoing refits in drydock.

While deployed in small numbers, the maintenance cost of smaller engagements and general wear and tear is a great improvement over their Nicolum counterparts. Despite this the UCMF is slow to adopt these efficient designs, due to the lack of spare parts and no compatibility with current UCM designs.

These ships offer an alternate visual style but still follow the normal rules for the UCM Rio and Berlin cruisers.

Contains 2 resin cruisers and plastic Dropfleet Commander bases and flight stands.

Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Other ships and gaming mats are for scale purposes only.

TTC Scourge Solar Cruisers 1 TTC Scourge Solar Cruisers 2 TTC Scourge Solar Cruisers 3 TTC Scourge Solar Cruisers 4 TTC Scourge Solar Cruisers 5 TTC Scourge Solar Cruisers 6 TTC Scourge Solar Cruisers 7

Scourge Solar Cruisers **PRE-ORDER 14th OCT** – £22.00

The Battle for Earth was disastrous for the occupying Scourge fleet. With a staggering amount of ships destroyed, it was only a matter of time before reinforcements arrived. What the Triumvirate was not expecting was these ships to be so…new.

The Solar Wyvern is an updated variant of the standard Wyvern. Constructed in seemingly lower quality than those that took earth over 160 years ago, these cruisers are no less deadly. Wrecks captured by the UCM show that these cruisers are remarkably new, possibly no older than the start of the Reconquest.

The mainstay of the Scourge fleet has also been seen as a „Solar“ variant. A Solar Sphinx is no less deadly than their ancient counterparts, though much less reliable in the long term. Something that doesn’t matter as much when they’re not expected to last long enough to need even a single refit.

These ships offer an alternate visual style but still follow the normal rules for the Scourge Sphinx and Wyvern cruisers.

Contains 2 resin miniatures and plastic Dropfleet Commander bases and flight stands.

Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Other ships and gaming mats are for scale purposes only.

TTC PHR Prototype Cruisers 1 TTC PHR Prototype Cruisers 2 TTC PHR Prototype Cruisers 3 TTC PHR Prototype Cruisers 4 TTC PHR Prototype Cruisers 5 TTC PHR Prototype Cruisers 6 TTC PHR Prototype Cruisers 7

PHR Prototype Cruisers **PRE-ORDER 14th OCT** – £22.00

The PHR is an ever advancing enigma, whatever these cruisers were designed for is beyond any intelligence report the UCM has access to. Only being seen during the Battle for Earth performing seemingly clandestine operations, meeting any questions from the Admiralty with staunch silence.

The Prototype Bellerophon is a more bulky variant of the standard PHR Bellerophon cruiser. Only being seen in a scant few engagements, the UCM has little combat data on the performance of these ships. Due to their recent sightings, the Admiralty has designated these as „prototype“ ships.

The Prototype Orpheus seems to be based on the same hull type as the Prototype Bellerophon. This version of the Orpheus has its bulk lander bays tucked underneath the armour on the upper hull section. This offers excellent protection from enemy attacks, though requires a different flight path to ground than the standard Orpheus would require.

These ships offer an alternate visual style but still follow the normal rules for the PHR Bellerophon and Orpheus cruisers.

Contains 2 resin miniatures and plastic Dropfleet Commander bases and flight stands.

Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Other ships and gaming mats are for scale purposes only.

TTC Shaltari Aaru Cruisers 1 TTC Shaltari Aaru Cruisers 2 TTC Shaltari Aaru Cruisers 3 TTC Shaltari Aaru Cruisers 4 TTC Shaltari Aaru Cruisers 5 TTC Shaltari Aaru Cruisers 6 TTC Shaltari Aaru Cruisers 7

Shaltari Aaru Cruisers **PRE-ORDER 14th OCT** – £22.00

Despite their technological supremacy, it was inevitable that the Shaltari would incur losses during their constant interference in the Reconquest. The fleet stationed above Aaru contains patterns similar to the ancient Shaltari battleships, albeit at a cruiser tonnage.

The Aaru Basalt is a carrier of ancient design, though no less potent than its contemporary counterpart. Primarily seen above Aaru, these have been given the name as a way of differentiating ships of comparable role and performance.

Also seen primarily above Aaru is a variant of the Emerald Mothership. Equally as old a design as the Aaru Basalt and just as rare. The tribes must be getting thin on ships if they’re using ancient designs to hold a planet.

These ships offer an alternate visual style but still follow the normal rules for the Shaltari Basalt and Emerald cruisers.

Contains 2 resin miniatures and plastic Dropfleet Commander bases and flight stands.

Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Other ships and gaming mats are for scale purposes only.

TTC Resistance Kalium Cruisers 1 TTC Resistance Kalium Cruisers 2 TTC Resistance Kalium Cruisers 3 TTC Resistance Kalium Cruisers 4 TTC Resistance Kalium Cruisers 5 TTC Resistance Kalium Cruisers 6 TTC Resistance Kalium Cruisers 7

Resistance Kalium Cruisers **PRE-ORDER 14th OCT** – £22.00

Despite maintaining existing pre-war designs, the shipyards of Kalium have made little in the way of innovation. That was until the Battle for Earth, where Kalium shipyards made efforts to „brand“ their new refined ships following losses.

The Kalium KNC-5 Line Cruiser is a Kalium designed light cruiser. These ships are a refinement over the pre-war ships that Kalium had been producing in vast numbers. Now more indicative of the brutalist design aesthetic that permeates Kalium designs. The KNC-5 Line Cruiser is equipped with two Vent Cannon Turrets as well as NC-16 Missile Banks.

While the KNC-5 is geared towards risky close range combat, the KNC-12 offers a more supportive role within the Kalium fleet. This Fleet Carrier has a full broadside of launch bays, with prodigious fighter and bomber compliment, and can support its wings with a top mounted Vent Cannon Turret.

These ships offer an alternate visual style but still follow the normal rules for Resistance Light Cruisers with the appropriate loadout.

Contains 2 resin miniatures and plastic Dropfleet Commander bases and flight stands.

Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Other ships and gaming mats are for scale purposes only.

  • Schön, dass es mit dem System weiter geht. Es macht wirklich riesigen Spaß. Ich bin sehr auf die 1.5 Regeländerungen gespannt und ob sie endlich mal die Gussqualität hinbekommen.

    • Ich habe gerade den DZC Behemoth der Resistance letzte Woche bekommen und kann hier von der Qualität nur Gutes berichten. Kein Vergleich zu meinen Hovercrafts, welche ich vor drei Monaten bekommen habe und wo das gesamte Heck vergossen war.

  • Also, wie schon bei der letzten Preview gesagt, finde ich das neue Design der UCM Kreuzer richtig gelungen. Schade nur, dass das Resin-Modelle werden und die somit nicht mehr so flexibel sind wie die Plastik-Kreuzer der ersten Generation.

    Von den übrigen neuen Kreuzern finde ich noch die von der Scourge richtig gut – und auch die von der Resistance können sich sehen lassen.

    Der neue Kreuzer der PHR ist mir aber zu „fett“ geraten. Dem geht die sonstige Eleganz der Fraktion fast komplett ab. Gleiches gilt auch für die Shaltari Kreuzer, wo mir der alte Plastik-Kreuzer-Bausatz auch immer noch besser gefällt als die neue, kompaktere Version.

  • Ich habe das Gefühl, man will aus kostengründen mit aller Gewalt einteilig modelle. Leider geht m.e. gerade der Charme der Fraktionen total verloren.

    • Sehe ich leider genauso. Wo sind die Tentakel der Scourge? Wo sind die Stachelbögen der Shaltari?
      Die neuen Schiffe verlieren grad genauso hart an Optik wie die 2. Edition von Dystopian Wars. Sehr schade.

      • Und das 1 Kreuzer jetzt ohne Versand, je nach Wechselkurs, 26 Euro kostet ist auch eine Ansage. Da muss keiner mehr auf die Preise anderer Hersteller schimpfen.

    • Geht mir auch so.
      Ich mochte das alte Design. Ich mag auch das neue UCM Schiffsdesign, sehe aber außer aus Gründen der Kostenoptimierung keinen Sinn darin, weshalb man das ikonische Aussehen der Schiffe so hart ändern sollte.
      Was schade ist, denn für mich wird es heißen, dass ich neue Schiffsklassen im neuen Aussehen der UCM nicht unter meine klassischen Schiffe mischen werde.

    • Die Designs find ich gar nicht so schlecht. Passt für mich schon in den Fluff, dass nach Jahren des Krieges neue Designs kommen (schau nur den 2.WK an) was mich tatsächlich nervt ist Resin und einteilig. Wenn man da zwei gleiche Schiffe nebeneinander stellt sind sie halt wirklich identisch. Die Plastik Modelle kann man relativ einfach umbauen und allein ein gedrehter Geschützturm wirkt halt schon Wunder wenn sie nebeneinader stehen.

  • Ich find die Box mega, aber ich weiß noch nicht ob ich da sofort mit einsteige.
    Ich versteh auch nicht warum es die Regeln nicht auf deutsch gibt, das würde den game hier den richtigen Impuls setzen um leute dafür begeistern zu können.
