Modular design. It's very important. When you create something for war, you want to be able to quickly adapt it to whatever you require at the time. The engineers at the Titania Aerospace Corporation have been working on just such a set of vehicles. They've hit a couple designs that work and they like and are now pumping out variations of them as fast as possible. And now, Dropzone Commander players can pick them up to bolster their forces.
Want to take your fleet into battle? Or maybe have your ground forces roll across the terrain and grab territory? That's what you'll be doing in Dropfleet and Dropzone Commander from TTCombat. And they've got a whole bunch of new releases for both games that you can go check out now.
Starter armies are a great way to get into a new game or a new force for a game you already play. They have everything you need to get going right away. And TTCombat has some new Dropzone Commander forces coming. Check out these new forces for the UCM and Scourge.

About the set:
Litko will be helping Dropozone Commander players upgrade their game soon with a new line of gaming accessories compatible with the popular miniature wargame. The line will include Tactical flight bases which have the firing arcs laser etched into them, Blast/LZ Templates, Goal Oriented scenario tokens, Building Damage markers, and Faction specific activation tokens.
Working directly from gamer feedback, Litko has made each blast template to incorporate all firing arcs and center cuts to fit around the flight stand pole for perfect centering on flying models. The Goal oriented tokens will include the proportionate number of double-sided Possible and Revealed Objective tokens for both Objective scenario types. Over-sized and reverse etched for high visibility, the Building Markers won't ever be overlooked across war-torn skylines. Each faction specific token set strikingly features a unique icon and color for activation tokens along with Forward Air Controller tokens for your forces.
Litko has released a production photo of the entire line. Pricing to follow.
From the website:
The Resistance is a complex, characterful and disparate assortment of human survivors on the Cradle Worlds and Earth itself, currently occupied by the dreaded alien Scourge. The very existence of the Resistance has shaped UCM military planning for its Reconquest, which became a war of liberation rather than simply a war of revenge as soon as they were discovered. Indeed, the Resistance alone are responsible for a reconquest being possible at all, as they were able to activate and maintain foldspace nodes on all but one of the Cradle Worlds, allowing UCM invasion fleets to jump to their locations accurately. Theirs is a tale of loss, grit and determination to survive in the face of insurmountable odds.

This imposing model is the very first kit in our exciting new Collector's Edition range. It is a complete 3x scale up and re-working of the original 10mm scale Ares Battle Walker - be sure to check out the gallery for this product, as it illustrates just how much bigger a 3-up is! Although this model makes a fantastic display centrepiece, it is cast from the highest quality tough resin and is more than suitable for gaming, should you wish to use the model for skirmish-based systems.
This finely detailed resin kit is far from a simple scale up. Many new features have been added and most of the original detail has been re-mastered to suit this scale. We have ensured that this kit delivers the level of detail that fans of our DZC range have come to expect. The legs have also been made completely posable - right down to the toes! This makes all sorts of dynamic poses possible, allowing you to make yours truly unique.
