Now that Hawk Wargames has released the brand new 2-player starter set, has anyone gotten into DZC, yet? Even though I don´t have anyone to play with and many, many unpainted miniatures on my desk, I´m still itching to buy the box and paint the new plastic models.
Has anyone played the game and if yes, what´s your opinion about it?
What is DZC?
Dropzone Commander (DzC) is a 10mm scale sci-fi tabletop wargame, devised for mass battles between two or more players. The rules are designed for efficient and dynamic games which can be played on a standard 4'x4' table (although larger tables work well also!).
The game is built around the concept of rapid deployment and redeployment of your forces by airborne dropships, exemplifying the pace of combat on the battlefields of the future. This makes for a tactical and fast paced experience, where quick thinking and strokes of genius often bring victory.

Your name is Scarlet Crocker and…good god it just doesn't stop. First you’re put in charge of a military base despite not being in the military and barely being out of high school, and then the safety of the colony is thrust into your hands after the bases defenses have been destroyed. Even after you've rebuild the base, pulled in recruits and started your own bloody R&D lab the Vagans still scoped out the colony, filled the fucking walls with Robot spiders, and hospitalized your Father and Grandfather.
Now along with the impending full force invasion fleet that will arrive in 2 days (or earlier) you've had an WMD in the form of a Plasma Diver Missile given to you and you've come across a hidden bunker filled with skeletons, cyborg body parts, and a recording involving Arthur, a man who your father has obsessed over and studied into zealously since before you were born.
Realistically even with all your preparations and a miniature WMD there’s still a big chance the Vagans will steam roll the colonies, kill your friends, family, and then move on to kill Flit’s wife, all the defected Vagans and orphans, and then move on to attack Big Ring and then Earth.
To say you’re a little stressed out is an understatement.
As you sit at your desk, thinking things over Rysis brings you a cup of coffee and an update on everything going on...

>read the new War Zone: Damnos
>mfw the defeat of the Ultramarines in the first war in Damnos has caused a tidal wave of low morale and depression across the Imperium. Suicide rates are off he charts, Imperial pride and confidence shattered, the armed forces of the Imperium are throwing down their weapons and are refusing to fight!
I am exaggerating things, but come on. A single defeat for the Ultramarine's second company and the loss of a single world is enough to lower the morale of an Empire of over a million worlds.
Also there is something curious I noticed. The Ultra-visions, I will call them. Cato has a series of unexplained visions of the Necrons and the C'tan creature in their possession. These Ultra-visions actually aid the marines in avoiding a Necron invasion of Ultramar and the death of Calgar.
This is not the first time an Ultramarine had a vision of the C'tan/Necrons. I recall Uriel experiencing a connection between him and the Nightbringer. This is beyond odd, why do the Ultramarine have an empathy to things made of Nercodermis?
Maybe its the fact that their Primarch is friends with a Necron Overlord?

>INSERT DARING KIDNAPPING SCENE HERE
So now we have an evil noblewoman in tow, a manhunt after us and about a hundred miles of rough terrain to cross until we reach the king...
...and we just realized we didn't take the letters so we have no fucking evidence. It's the word of us, lowly mercenaries, against the word of the younger sister of the king's most trusted ally.
The girl is unbearably relaxed, smug and chatty considering her circumstances. We didn't divulge our plans or motivations to her. She said she figures we probably kidnapped her in a fit of anger over being lied to and didn't plan it through. She said we were foolish, but we've also impressed her with the skill and daring to pull off the kidnapping. She said she'd regret losing an asset like us ("and as it stands, my rescue and your deaths are foregone conclusions"). She promises she'd be willing to forgive our transgrassion against her and make up a lie (e.g. someone else kidnapped her and we actually rescued her) to save us from any consequences if we return her and remain in her service.
How bad of an idea would taking her offer be? On a 1-10 scale? Any good advice?
