Rulebook Version 1.1 has arrived!
We've sold our entire first print run of Dropzone Commander
and have just taken delivery of our new, revised 1.1 edition!
First off - it's important to note that this does NOT make the original rulebook redundant! Most of the changes featured have already been released online some time ago and further rules revisions are available to download now. That being said, we have taken this opportunity to act on feedback from our fans and reviewers to make a few more minor adjustments to the book and the rules, which are as follows:
A) All current Errata, rules changes and most of the Clarifications have been incorporated into the
B) We've made some changes to points costs etc. These are available to download here, but in
general terms, gunships and special forces are now cheaper in points, and some smaller weapons,
upgrade costs and scenarios have been slightly modified.
C) Version 1.1 now features a double page index, a new page detailing how to build a Battlegroup
and a brand new, first person mini-story!
D) Text is now further from the spine towards the centre of the book to increase readability, and the
blue 'Rules' margin colour has now been split into three distinct shades for Background, Rules and
E) Paper quality is improved, with a totally uniform laminate texture throughout.
F) Rules for our recent releases (e.g. the Ferrum, Hades, Firedrake, Annihilator etc) are NOT
featured in the revised edition. They will be printed in a future expansion of Dropzone Commander.
Version 1.1 is available immediately, and any outstanding orders for rulebooks will automatically be
shifted to this revised version. The retail price will remain exactly the same!
