If you haven’t heard yet, the latest hot potato in the gaming world is Dropzone Commander by Hawk Wargames.

This has been one of thee best kept secrets in the history of gaming. It has been in the works for over two and a half years and is due for release 16th July 2012 but the website will be open for pre-orders from 1st June 2012 and believe me you will want to pre-order these minis.

The game itself is a 10mm scale mass table top sci-fi wargame which focuses mainly but not exclusively on dropships.

There are four factions that I know of so far but little else is known at this minute, but wait, we have pics for you guys, so feast your eyes on these.



U.C.M – United Colonies of Mankind

The Shaltari Tribes

The Scourge

These miniatures look just amazing I think you will agree, made from resin (except for the infantry which is white metal) and using some hi-tech casting they are said to be strong and durable with very little preparation.

Well sorry folks, but that’s all there is for now, but I am working on getting more images and details and as soon as I  do you will find them here.

Ah ha!!! Just one more thing.

Warren from Beasts of War caught up with Hawk Wargames at Salute 2012 and he it is. (note the competition mentioned is now closed)

I'm Mad Dave one of the team's growing collection of tabletop gaming nerds. I was raised on a healthy diet of TV like Blake 7, Doctor Who and Star Trek with a side of sword and sorcery / sc-fi movies and a large dollop of board games like Cluedo, RISK and Hero Quest. You know your a gaming nerd if: You bring toy soldiers to work? You bring toy soldiers to work and you work has nothing to do with toy soldiers? Most of you jackets / coats have dice in one of the pockets? You hate throwing away packaging because you know it's actually a ruined building or field generator? You have a collection of old packaging? You can find something relevant to your hobby i.e. books, magazines, figures etc in almost every room in your house? I no I'm a nerd because I've done all of the above, how many of these made you smile and nod yes to?
