Day 21 – Dropfleet players aren’t going to want to miss this one!
We’re on our third and final week, and it’s been quite the preview so far! For Dropfleet we’ve had new shooty space stations and the full rulebook for free.
So let’s round out the holiday period with some new ships.
We’ve recently focused on some smaller ships like Lighters, Monitors and Destroyers to add to your games, but it’s time to go big again!
With only 2 of each Battlecruiser available to each faction, don’t you think that size of ship deserves a bit of love?
Well if so, you’re in luck because next year we’ll be releasing brand new Battlecruisers!
Every faction is getting a new blister with 2 new Battlecruisers in each. And these are all kind of different!
You’ll notice some similarites throughout the range to some other classes of ship, such as this UCM one with triple prows, just like the Kiev.
The new ones have been built around the familiar frame of the existing Battlecruisers, although each has had a major component redesigned to make them look very different indeed!
This one is like a giant Castor! The Battlecruisers were some of the oldest ships sculpted by Dave, so he’s used this experience to revisit the classic designs and bring in some of the new elements he’s introduced to each faction.
Weirdly the Shaltari one uses the same fins as the Ruby/Sapphire set, but replaces the core hull, making something that looks familiar but at the same time very different in profile!
Not all Battlecruisers have to be aggressive either, like this Resistance one! We’re still in early rules stages at the moment, but I can say that this is a repair ship for on-the-fly fixing!
Oh, you thought we were going to show you all the designs of each? Sorry, nope! You’ll have to wait until next year to see all of those. Who says Dave is finished with them anyway?
UCM Command Cards
Also in Dropfleet news, the UCM Command Cards are back!
We ran out of these a short while back, and took the opportunity to update them to the new design.
We actually weren’t expecting delivery of them until the new year, but they got here early, so we thought we’d release them early. They’re in store now, although you almost certainly won’t get them until after Xmas if you order now!
