The guys from 6 Inch Move, The Shell Case and myself were invited by the wonderful Dave Lewis, of Hawk Wargames fame, to his personal bunker on the 23rd June to try the game out for ourselves and maybe even have a little input into it, as they are still in the closing stages of playtesting the rules. (Worry ye not those that think there is not enough time for the book to be ready for the release date, there is a deal with the printers for a rapid print run.)
Unfortunately due to a family emergency I was not able to attend. To say this was gutting would be understating it massively. However My good friend Phil of The Shell Case with one of “The Chaps”, his gaming group, and 2 people from 6 inch move went along and spent a whole day trying the game as it presently stands and gave a little feedback and made some suggestions to boot. They have both respectively posted on their blogs regarding this so I encourage you to check out both. It is interesting that they both use the same game to compare Dropzone Commander to, having never previously met and not really communicated in a big way since going. Needless to say that they are good reads and should have you salivating for the release of the game!
6 Inch move have also featured all the pre-order army deals for Dropzone Commander on their blog so why not check those out as well to see the goodies for yourselves!
