Like every year, I think I’ll have time during the show to update things but that never happens. The convention is just too busy and entertaining to stop and post so as I settle back into to post-Con life, I get the energy to recapture the magic before too much of the memories fade. Because my photos are in order, it’s easiest to just go through things each day.

The big wargaming convention, Salute, happened in the UK this weekend (well Saturday really) and TTCombat was to have some big Dropzone Commander announcements. Unfortunately, there was almost no new news on Dropzone Commander (that they hadn’t already shown at GAMA and Adepticon). They did have something new for Dropfleet Commander, however.
With my first successful casting of the weapon mount for Dropzone Commander’s Wagon units, I went and finished up the other two mounts. After they dried and cured, I cutoff the excess green stuff and shaved them down to size.
While the iphone image quality leaves a lot to be desired, you can tell the casts are a bit softer than the original piece up top. I shouldn’t matter as they’ll be hidden under the weapon rack itself and, at 10mm, it will hardly be noticeable.
Finishing up the Dropzone Commander Underground Hangar took a little longer than expected. The biggest issue was painting up the closed baffles for the hangar opening. I struggled a couple of times until I found a simple way to just get it down.
Mantic did a much better job this year running a “Walking Dead Week” and kept up their blog everyday on new Walking Dead content. Nothing new came out to calm my growing fear that Mantic is discontinuing its support for the solo aspects of the game but hopefully I’ll find out more at Gen Con. Unfortunately, I didn’t have much else to add this week after all their information came out but I did break open some Dropzone Commander models and work them up.
I picked up several of the new Famous Commander models and was excited to open up this bad boy and get it assembled.
Well, the new owners of Dropzone Commander, TTCombat, held a live chat on the current state of the product line and that of it’s sister game, Dropfleet Commander. One of the admins for the main Facebook group posted the summary for those that couldn’t attend:
