Dropzone Commenter: An Introduction to DzC


DzC fans know that out of all the games out there, 40k and Dropzone are my most commonly played games and the obsession of my gaming efforts. Dropzone Commander is spreading, and with it new locations to read up on the game, and the latest is the Dropzone Commenter over on Gamerati.


I recently sat down with Alex, who is the author of the new series on Gamerati dedicated to learning Dropzone Commander and all of it's nuances. He is local to me here in the Portland area, along with Ed Healy of Gamerati, so there may just be some coordination of events in the near future.

For now though, I wanted to plug a new series of articles, as they launch. There is a lot of good thoughts, tactics, modelling tips etc that are on the way.

Here is an introduction to both the game and the series.


Welcome to Dropzone Commenter!

  3. You do! :) DZC is awesome in many ways that 40k hasn't been able to (and really can't) achieve do to things like scale. If you've already got a starter, you may be happy to know we'll be posting the first article on the factions and their themes starting next week, followed by an article on expanding your starter set to a full army for around $100. Stay tuned!

    1. The Shaltari write-up is one of my longest, specifically because they break a lot of the core rules of the games (their teleport Gates being the most surprisingly significant of them all). That should be up within a month or so - we're publishing these once a week so I can keep abreast of the writing!

    2. Just remembered this comment, so thought I'd let you know the Shaltari article is live... http://gamerati.com/choosing-a-dzc-force-part-4-shaltari/. Hope it helps!
