Smoke And Mirrors: A Test Build

In my pursuit of the old Dropzone Commander terrain pieces, I found the Underground Hangar on clearance locally and picked it up to add to the collection.

Krell’s Battle Cat

With my 80’s Transformers fix out of the way for Dropzone, I turn to another fixture from my youth: He-Man.  I was trying to decide a color scheme for my Rakkon Krell command walker and thought maybe I could try out a little Battle Cat theme.  I really enjoyed painting up my Walking Dead All Out War tiger so hopefully this wouldn’t be too difficult.

Arise, Optimus Prime

With the rest of my Optimus Prime pieces complete, I took the past few evenings to finish painting everything up. It’s nice to see everything come together fully as I’d imagined well over a year ago.

Roll Out!

I didn’t have a chance to write up stats on my Optimus Prime conversion for Dropzone Commander but was able to complete a bit more of his final “package.”  I’d already completed his truck and robot modes but still had one little nagging thing missing: what was inside his trailer.

More Than Meets The Eye

Holy Epic Crossover! I’ve had this mod in my queue for a while now but I’m happy that I finally broke it out and was able to finish it up.

Dropzone Commander: Shackleton Escape Pod

As I was building my first ruined building for Dropzone Commander, I was also looking to do something with the set of Shackleton Escape Pods I picked up.  Looking closer at the building wreckage, it looked like something pretty epic struck the side of the building but what could have collapsed that part of the building so completely?

what indeed…

Dropzone Commander: Demolition Derby

In an effort to vary some of my Dropzone Commander terrain, I recently picked up a set of mdf buildings from Empires at War.  I usually wouldn’t waste time on more buildings because the paper terrain versions work well for me but these are nice in that they feature destroyed buildings with multiple floors.  I spent the weekend getting one of the kits out and seeing what all I could do with it.

End Of The Line: Dropzone Monorail Completion

I used the rest of the week to wrap up my Dropzone Commander Monorail kit, focusing lastly on the bases.  I didn’t really want to free hand some general ruined concrete but I also know that I didn’t want to leave them plain even though the product image has them that way.  I turned to my ruinscape terrain tiles for the solution.

Off The Rails

With Test of Honour Week over, I started up a project I’ve been waiting on for a while now.  In a bit of ironic coincidence, we took the weekend to go up to the Georgetown Loop and ride their old steam train.  I also just happened to pick up the Dropzone Commander Monorail scenery kit.  I usually don’t jump into a project as soon as I pick up the product but the forces seemed in alignment so I pushed forward.

Dropping Minis All Weekend Long

This weekend saw a lot of Dropzone as we celebrated a friend’s birthday with a bunch of Dropzone Commander games going off simultaneously.  With 6 players, we had all five factions represented and I did a poor job of capturing the event as we had several interesting games going on.  My map featured the orbital defense laser in the “Laser 2” scenario from Reconquest Phase 1.  The Shaltari v UCM was  river defense layout and the Shaltari v Scourge was a custom narrative scenario with some elevated highway terrain.
