TTCombat Announce Purchase of Dropzone Commander and Dropfleet Commander

TTCombat Announce Purchase of Dropzone Commander and Dropfleet Commander.

Today we have an extremely exciting announcement here at TTCombat. We have completed a deal with Hawk Wargames to purchase both the incredible Dropzone Commander and Dropfleet Commander.

Dropzone Commander and Dropfleet Commander.

For the past few months we have been talking to Hawk about handling their logistics. The difficulty of off-site production combined with fulfilling one of the most successful UK wargaming Kickstarters of all time was putting strain on their business.

David Lewis is one of the most talented designers in the industry; he’s made two amazing games and a beautiful range of miniatures to support them. However, as time went on, David found himself spending most of his time running a company and dealing with the fall-out from the Dropfleet Commander Kickstarter.

After discussions on how to best move the business forward into 2018 and beyond, we both came to the conclusion that it would be better for Hawk Wargames to become a part of the TTCombat family.

David is of course staying on as lead designer and will now have his time freed up to do what he does best: design breath-taking miniatures. The TTCombat team have been working on a range of buildings and accessories which will launch alongside Dropzone Commander 2.0 at Salute in April, and there will be plenty more before then!

We have a lot of moulds that require remaking, so some supplies may be a bit short while we facilitate the transition, so we please ask all the DZC and DFC fans to be patient with us during this time. If you’ve followed TTCombat in the past, you’ll know that it won’t be long before everything is up and running.

The Dropfleet Commander Battle Fleet box deals will finally see release at the end of November and we are already building a good quantity of stock to ensure we can meet demand. David has already begun work on the destroyers for Dropfleet and they are looking fantastic!

The Dropfleet Commander Kickstarter still has some items outstanding, and we at TTCombat will be ensuring that all backers will receive all of their rewards promptly. If we have to make your toys from scratch then we will get pouring resin! There are also some outstanding vouchers, which of course we will be honouring via the TTCombat webstore. Once we have organised the stock we have collected from Hawk and got it all listed, you’ll be able to choose from any Dropzone Commander or Dropfleet Commander products, or the full range of TTCombat games, scenery, and accessories!

TTCombat games, scenery, and accessories!

The next couple of months will be a little hectic as we get everything back on track, but once we do, hold on tight! We have some exciting years ahead… a third Commander game in 2018 anyone?

Dropzone Commander Autumn Invasion: Results

Posted on September 26th, 2017 under . Posted by

Hawk’s official Autumn Invasion Dropzone Commander tournament took place this weekend and it was greatly enjoyed by all. Here we have a list and gallery of all the winners. This tournament was the last official event to use the 1st Edition rules with the upcoming release of 2nd Edition, so after 4 years of competition there were many players looking to be crowned the eternal champion.

All of the proud winners with Hawk Dave

 Awards

1st Mike Burch (Resistance)
2nd James Foster (Scourge)
3rd James Barry (Shaltari)

Mike Burch won first place for a record fourth time including his win earlier this year! Not only has Mike attended every Invasion event since it began but he has won with a number of different factions. He is undoubtedly the champion of Dropzone Commander 1st Edition. James Foster had a particularly successful weekend as you will see below, beginning with finishing second overall. Ex-Hawk employee James Barry put his extensive knowledge of the game to good use to claim third place.

Best Painted Army – James Foster
Best Painted Unit – Robert Hutton
Painting Raffle – Philip Ball

Hawk Dave chose James’ Scourge army as the overall best painted army and the Hawk team strongly agreed. We have seen James at previous Invasions and his skill has always caught our eye. His detailed bases are an excellent touch that really show the effort he has put into his army. Robert Hutton won the Single Unit painting competition for his Resistance Thunderstorm Custom and Philip Ball won the Painting Raffle, a draw designed to reward players who have entered with a fully painted army.

Most Sporting – Jonathan Brown

Best Team – Ferrum Real Estate Corporation (James Foster, David Ray, Martin Dalzell, Neil Hollyhoke)

Wooden Spoon – Malcolm Haddow

James Foster won his third award for leading Ferrum Real Estate Corporation to victory with its members averaging the highest score. Malcolm Haddow was awarded a wooden spoon for the unfortunate honour of coming last which Hawk Dave duly signed and is now on display in Malcolm’s gaming room!
