All Along The Water Tower

With Dropzone Commander, as with most minis games, there are a lot of extra tools players use to help the game go smoothly.

I was able to use them in a game and I loved them but not owning a 3D printer, I could only look on.  I even tried my own hand at it with my CNC machine but it didn’t work out too well.
