Well, I have been watching this develop, along with many people who have a very soft spot in their hearts for the classic GW Epic 40k game.
I have spoken of my love for EPIC Space Marine. I have boxes full of painted and unpainted Epic minis. So a well supported sci fi ground combat game is right up my alley.
Then a few months ago the images for Dropzone Commander started coming out. First in ones and twos, then one a day on the Dropzone Facebook page. Now some stunning atmospheric shots of the armies form the Hawk Wargames website. And preorders for the minis are up there as well as a favorite US online store, The Warstore. Here are some of those shots:
Not much is known about force sizes, costs of armies and mechanics of the game. And that's too bad. I think maybe how cool the minis are, was too much to keep to themselves at Hawk Wargames. And the rules themselves weren't ready. So now Hawk is having to answer too many questions and is distrated from getting the complete package together to sell. Hard to keep minis this cool under wraps, but I wish they had. I hope it isn't detrimental to the overall system.
I have immense respect for Frontline Gamer and he has done a great review of where things sit right now with the game. I would encourage you to take a look at his article.
Even though it wasn't on the options list for the BG's group game. I think maybe it should be.
