This is not out yet, but we get to take a good look at the new 2 Player Starter Set for Dropzone Commander. It will be released on September 28th, and will be available everywhere, and if you have an interest in Dropzone Commander, this is something that you should definitely be taking a closer look at.
What You Get
This is really amazing that you get two starter sets, one for the UCM and one for the Scourge in this set. What would normally cost you £68.00 (around $100 USD) for a single resin starter set, you get two plastic starters for the same price. The 2 player starter set retails at £60.00 or $95 USD. The models really do maintain the high quality that we see in the resin models. After a close inspection I was amazed they maintained as much as they did. Of course the resin models hold a little more of the detail, but you need to check out the video to see just how great Hawk Wargames did with these.
So you get two starter sets for the price of one. There is more in this box. You get the new 1.1 version of the rulebook, reference sheets, 10 buildings and a poster to put down as your playmat, blast templates, a firing arc template, dice, measuring device, and tokens for the game.
The most important part of this release, is that once you purchase this, you have everything you need to start playing. With the purchase of a second starter set, both you and a friend, can really sit down with a decent sized force of easily 1000pts.
This is more than just a great starter set, its probably one of the best I have seen. Check out the video and decide for yourself.
