OK, the next big project is something I've been waiting for since last year's kickstarter was announced. Dropfleet Commander from Hawk Games. I just picked up my copy for $135 from Thunderground in St Albert (thanks to Roy for bringing this in!).
Opening up the box, we see that it's packed.
Seven "human" fleet ships with game bases. The faction is called the UMC.
Seven "alien" fleet ships with game bases. The faction is called Scourge.
All the game junk. Holy crap. Maps, quick reference cards, base stickers, fleet rosters, game markers, stands, dice and a tape measure (nice touch).
The rulebook is 224 pages meaty. High production values.
...fluff...and plenty more.
Looking forward to digging into this big project. Will be starting to build ships tonight.
'Til next time.
