Dropfleet Commander is kicking off at the end of October, or round abouts. It’s likely to be kickstarting the starter set at 60pounds.
The kickstarter will contain alternative sculpts for some units that are otherwise available. The kickstarter is likely to be limited to the plastic starters, to avoid competing directly with stores.
The two player starter will be UCM and Scourge. The UCM ships having a functional look perhaps in line with the sulaco from aliens. The scourge cruisers will be far more organic in look, although actually are constructed. They’ll feature posable “wings” giving you endless variety.
The mechanics look simple and intuitive, with an emphasis on trying to carry out a decisive strike.
There’s a full intercoew on beasts of war.
