Gen Con Recap 2019: Day 1

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 Battle For Earth Begins

It’s been a long road, but a Second Edition is finally coming to Dropzone Commander. The new ruleset, titled “Battle for Earth,” is an odd compilation of fluff (more on that in a minute), Dropfleet Commander updates and new units, and complete Dropzone Commander 2.0 rules.

Dropzone Commander: News From Across The Pond

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.

Additional Scenery

I hit a snag with my Test of Honour board in that I couldn’t find all the ingredients to make my own wash locally.  They are now on order but I can’t do much until that package comes in.  I do have some scenery terrain I’d been meaning to paint up and now was as good a time as any.

Casting Call

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.

Underground Hangar Part Two Plus Bunk Buddies And A Chance Encounter

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.

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.

Construction Woes

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.

Dropzone Commander Update From Across The Pond

Salute 2018 was this past weekend in London and while the new owners of Dropzone Commander didn’t put on the kind of spectacle that Hawk Wargames used to throw, they did have a few interesting items to pour over.

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:

hmmm.
