Advent Calendar 23

Saving the biggest things for the last week? That’s us!

It’s a Dropzone day in the advent calendar today, and… well, let’s not waste any time…

There’s a tentacled nasty making its way around the office, grabbing people from their desks and carrying them about. It’s… unpleasant for a while, but after they get back they seem happy, if very thirsty…

It’s a Scourge Behemoth! :O

We’ve had the Behemoths on the horizon for a little while, but we made the decision to push them back to get all the restocks done and some smaller new models made first. We’re getting close to restocks being finished, and will be pushing on with them again in the new year.

In the meantime, we thought it was high time to test out one of these massive new models (I can’t really call it a “miniature”).

This is the first 3D print of the Scourge Behemoth, carefully assembled by Fin. It’s pretty crazy looking, right?!

Bear in mind that this is still a WIP picture. Models this big take a long time to get ready for production, or even for making master moulds! This is a scale that Dave has never sculpted at before, and these will be some of the largest models we’ve ever produced, so there’s a lot of back and forth still to come to make sure everything is perfect. And that’s just tolerances and fitting – on something this big, the only way to properly inspect the details and the overall look of the model is by getting it stuck together!

Needless to say, we’re still a little way off releasing these huge models, although there will be plenty of other things to keep you all busy in the meantime.

What do you think? Excited by a massive, awesome looking model? Concerned for your UCM Legionnaires? These are the biggest models we’re likely to ever make for Dropzone, so yeah, those Legionnaires probably should be a little worried!

Dropzone Desktop Wallpapers

As an extra little bonus (and so Fleet players weren’t getting ALL the love), we’ve uploaded a whole load of Dropzone desktop wallpapers to the TTCombat webstore Resources page!

There are faction specific and a few various ones in there as well. There’s loads of art from Battle for Earth, in full size!

And some classics, like this sinister Razorworm attack.

Just head over to the Resources page and download yours, completely free!
