Cause there ain’t no party like a Dropfleet launch asset party!
Greetings fellow space fighting humans (and Scourge hosts). It is I, the bringer of Work In Progress news. As many of you know, we have halted the sale of many of our resin models temporarily. We have started re-introducing our product lines slowly but surely to make sure we can keep up with the demand.
Dropfleet commander will soon be added back in to stock and will be available for purchase once more. So we thought we would give you a taste of some new items to come as well. Dropfleet faction specific Launch Assets!
These are alternate Launch Assets that have been designed for each faction to provide a much more immersive experience when playing Dropfleet. We’ve got fighters, we’ve got bombers, we’ve got torpedoes! No matter your faction, we have some tasty launch assets to make your table top gaming experience even better.
These are 3D prints, with the supports still on, still attached to their rafts from the printer.
We’ve actually shown some of these off a little while ago, but they’ve been reprinted – for good reason.
We need your assistance. We are trying some different sizes to make sure we get Launch assets to your liking. These ones have been 3D printed sized x1, x1.5 and x2. Which size do you think works best? Remember, with greater size comes greater detail. Or maybe somewhere between? We can make them as big or as small as we like!
The time is coming my fellow space soldiers. A time where no longer do we need to imagine the smaller fighters whizzing around in space but rather see them in all their tiny glory. In this post you can see a Scourge Bomber and a Resistance Fighter.
While we’d like to keep the 5/3/1 per base of Fighters/Bombers/Torpedoes, we’re open to changing that too – the bigger the scale, the less you’ll fit on a base!
Now, this might seem sacreligious to scale different models differently in the game, but there is precedent! Not only are the Sector Tokens scaled up, but the current Launch Assets are about twice the scale of the other ships already! Dave sculpts such beautiful detail, it seems a shame to waste it, especially when we could even go 4 times the size of his sculpts and have things sufficiently crazily detailed!
We know this is a big question but once you have made your decision, feel free to comment below or have a chat on the Facebook fan page on the size you think would fit the game and other models best.
Happy space fighting humans.
