Dropzone Houserules

The houserules our group are testing to tweak a few aspects of Dropzone to increase the verisimilitude and correct a few balance deficiencies.

Dropfleet Commander - UCMF Takes Flight

Finished painting up my ~starter set of Dropfleet Commander UCM ships. Weather/Family/Work all aligned for some good photos of the finished fleet.

Short-Sighted Names: Mid-September Update

yadzcb has a better cadence than yadcb to me, and I honestly thought it'd be years before touching Dropfleet, and then I heard about UKGE...

An account of a recent game wherein Cyclones rule the skies and Destroyers live up to their names.

Warlord's Call Answered

I finished my Resistance to the point I can field a full 1500 legal army, and am eager to do so. Take a look.

My 'All-Comers' Scourge tournament army list for v2.2.0 rev1.1 of Dropzone Commander

State of the Game as of v2.2.0 (April 2021 Update)

Throwing a Gauntlet at My Own Feet

My FLGS, Game Kastle Austin, is grandly reopening in two weeks time. I need to get my Resistance painted up to a fieldable level before then so I can start fishing for other Dropzone players or inviting new people to try it. Unpainted models DO NOT make for a good first impression. So lets take inventory and see what needs prioritized.
