Dropfleet Commander is an orbital space combat game designed by Andy Chambers and David Lewis, based in the Dropzone Commander Universe

 

Dropfleet Commander is planetary invasion wargame designed and produced by Hawk Wargames. Players command destructive fleets of void capable ships and battle for control of planets, fighting for the future of mankind itself!

You will take command of orbital battle fleets vying for control of the Cradle Worlds; Humanity’s home planets for hundreds of years, now under the tyrannical control of the parasitic Scourge race.

The Dropfleet Commander 2 Player Starter set includes two fleets of ships: The brave United Colonies of Mankind, fighting to retake humanity’s lost worlds, and the insidious Scourge, parasitic oppressors who will stop at nothing to enslave and subjugate all the human race holds dear.

Principle designers Andy Chambers (Battlefleet Gothic, Warhammer 40,000) and David J Lewis (Dropzone Commander) bring you a galaxy of ship-to-ship combat, tactical gameplay, and rich, exciting background from the world of Dropzone Commander.

We are running this Kickstarter in order to help fund the high cost of moulds for plastic miniatures, which will allow us to put our Starter Fleets into production in full plastic from launch.

Since we are almost ready to release the game, we are looking to dispatch to backers as soon as we are able; barring any major problems we are planning to deliver in June 2016. We are also committed to fulfilling our pledges before any Dropfleet Commander products are on sale – our backers will receive their rewards before anyone else.

Modular Ship Construction Designs

What is awesome about this game is the modular design of the plastic bits, allowing many ship classes to be build from the same sprue. for example look at the types of UCM and Scourge ships that you can build with thier default cruiser sprues:
