Dropzone Commander – Scourge

I’ve been hearing a lot of good reviews regarding Dropzone Commander from Hawk Wargames, especially since the starter box came out in October of last year. Dropzone Commander is a 10mm miniature game utilizing dropships as a central theme for delivery and rapid redeployment of your units. I’ve heard the game referred to as the chess of wargaming due to it’s emphasis on tactics over complex rules. For roughly $100 US, the box comes with two starter armies with enough points for a 60 minute demo/skirmish, a full size rule book and card stock buildings among a lot of other items (markers/dice/tape measure). From what I understand (I have yet to play a game) these starting armies are not throw away armies that will never be used outside of a demo, but are solid units that will be used as you scale up your army(s). The models themselves are very good looking and they pack a lot of detail into their 10mm size. The first of the skirmish armies that I painted up are the Scourge, which are the universal “bad guys” in the game. They have an HR Giger look to them and all of their vehicles use grav technology to float around. I went with a bright scheme using Warpaints Crystal Blue as the main color with Gun Metal/Weapon Bronze/Lava Orange as accent colors.

  1. Very nice army. I like your colour choice, as it is more interesting than the traditional black I see a lot. The price for two armies and all the additional stuff is very fair. I heard the models are made of high quality resin and almost indestructible?

    I’ll be interesting to read about your feelings about the rules and see the other force painted up.
