[DZCommenter] Hawk to the Future: New Troops, New Tactics

PostThu Aug 06, 2015 5:22 am

Hello Commanders!

Survived another busy (and successful) Gen Con, and got to get some one on one time with Dave about the new DZC models. You can read my first report, covering the new infantry with pics and a more detailed breakdown, here:

http://gamerati.com/hawk-to-the-future- ... w-tactics/

More pics are also over on our Facebook page:

AND Dave also gave us the very-first-in-the-world Dropfleet Commander demo at the show; if you haven't seen the first video, check it out here:

Please feel free to discuss :)

Given the growing number of UCM heavy weapons, it's interesting to think that the vanilla UCM troopers may take on a role as replacement crew, which would be in line with current doctrine.

After taking with Dave and seeing the new models at GenCon I'm really excited about the new influence of infantry in the game.

Looking forward to trying out the Medusa Ina game later this weekend.

I keep logging in and hoping the Medusea rules are posted for a game I have in the morning!

It does seem really odd to have models you can buy without any rules for them...

It's rare they're not available and probably just an oversight. Given the out of office reply I got when sending an email to the talons box they're not going to be available before Monday when they're back in the office.
