Dropfleet Commander Rulebook
The game of planet-bound fleet combat in the far future has just received an updated Rulebook. This new book contains the 1.5 version of fleet rules and includes everything you need to deploy ships, play scenarios and build a fleet. Written by Andy Chambers, David J Lewis, Scott Burns, its time to take your battles into low orbit and join or stop the reconquest fight. You can purchase the 64 page rulebook separately or as a part of the boxset.

UCM Titania Cruisers
Due to the attrition suffered during the Battle for Earth, several manufacturing services secured lucrative military contracts. The Titania Aerospace Corporation is now the product producer of the Titania New Rio and New Berlin (Named after cities in true human fashion). Matching their predecessors stat for stat, these new ships are faster to produce and have great combat capabilities.
You can pre-order the UCM Titania Cruisers today for £22.
Scourge Solar Cruisers
The Battle for Earth turned disastrous for the occupying Scourge. With a huge amount of their fleet destroyed, it was on a matter of time until reinforcements deployed. The Solar Wyvern is an updated variant of the standard ship and has only been spotted in low numbers. A Solar Sphinx has also been spotted and is no less deadly than the previous model. These ships offer an alternative visual style whilst having the same stats as their predecessor.
You can pre-order the Scourge Solar Cruisers today for £22.
PHR Prototype Cruisers
Ever advancing and altering, whatever these cruisers were designed for is beyond the understanding of the UCM. The prototype Bellerophon is a more bulky variant of the standard cruiser. Due to the UCM’s lack of data regarding these ships they have been designated ”Prototype” ships. The Protoype Orpheus is based on the same hull as the Bellerophon but this version has its bulk lander bays tucked underneath the upper hull armour. These ships offer an alternative visual style whilst retaining the stats.
You can pre-order this PHR pair today for £22.
Shaltari Aaru Cruisers
Despite their technological and style supremacy, it was inevitable that the Shaltari would face some loses due to their interference in the Reconquest. The Aaru contains patterns similar to the ancient Shaltari battleships, albeit at a cruiser tonnage. The Aaru Basalt is a carrier of ancient design but is no less potent than its modern counterpart. Additionally the alternative Emerald cruiser like the Basalt has the same stats as the previous release.
You can pre-order these Shaltari ships today for £22.
Resistance Kalium Cruisers
The shipyards of Kalium have made little innovations over the years. In fact very little happened until the Battle for Earth. Kalium made new efforts to develop ships and ”brand” their latest refined ships following previous losses. The Kalium KNC-5 Line Cruiser is a updated refinement over the pre-war ships produced in vast numbers. Resistance crew will find this ship equipped with Twin Vent Cannon Turrets as well as NC-16 Missile Banks. Additionally deploying today is the KNC-12 which offers a more supporting role in Kalium fleets. Armed with a full broadside of launch bays, with prodigious fighter and bomber compliment, and can support its wings with a top mounted Vent Cannon Turret.
You can pre-order these Resistance Cruisers today for £22.
