RITides, I’ll see what I can convert from a few bits. Sadly, spare fins are precious and few.

Anyway, I printed out some BFG ships in scale with DFC. I’ll try printing a different Sword.

I put together a few tentative conversions based on the concept of the PHR lighter.

Nice! There are also a ton of B5 ships that have been uploaded to thingiverse over the past couple of months likely from a PC game given the scaling of various components. They might be good for digital conversion fodder.

I forgot to mention that I left spaces on the torpedo ship and small lighter to add some of the Space Station kit’s small “fins”, when I get some more of them.


@ Warboss, awesome! I’ll have to investigate. I’d love to have an Omega or Sharlin in DFC scale for scenarios. Hmmm. EAA forces fight the Battle of the Line.

This is the guy I was referring to. That Earth Alliance Nova looks incredible but there is no way any of those antennae will survive printing let alone tabletop play at anything other than old AMT/ERTYL scale.

The new event exclusives have been teased. They go on sale Friday.

https://community.ttcombat.com/2020/08/04/teaser-exclusive-tuesday/?fbclid=IwAR0amTnJnnE-r8Nx3UDRehgGkTdP1gx6_fA-NoB_Ak446K0E0gCpnk8sN_Q



I’ll see if I can get some pictures over, but it looks like the Pungari Thresher is back (as well as all of last year’s exclusives) and we get:

A gunship for Dropzone.


Sector tokens (buildings) based on Scourge-infested NYC.


A Rumbleslam character named after the most infamous typo in the Dropfleet Rulebook: Traffic James.

Wow thats handy might have to get some of these to fill out the small gaps in my huge B5 collection - especailly the Shadow and Centauri

Still keeping an eye on the Dropfleet ships ( I picked up the orignal game) but not grabbed by many of the designs

So, that exclusive Resistance cruiser won't be available? Or will it?

The exclusive Centurion will not be available again. That comes directly from Lewis Clarke. Which really makes me sad.

I plan to buy the retail Centurion and modify it to look like the exclusive version by cutting off the prow sensor fin and repositioning the mass driver turret. I’ve seen it done online and it tends to look pretty close.

I believe we will see the Princess liner and both UCM exclusive light cruisers, though.

I'm struggling to get a grip of the size of the Osprey Gunship - does it have a two-level cockpit (with two windows) and oversized chin guns, or is it an enclosed / armoured cockpit?

Ahahahahaha that Traffic James model is amazing. Kid_Kyoto, I may have to steal your idea, a new MoF may be in order

The correct pronunciation is Imperial Guard and Stormtroopers, "Astra Militarum" and "Tempestus Scions" are something you'll find at Hogwarts.

That is such an odd design choice. The cockpit area looks like a Dropfleet ship more than a Dropzone dropship. Hmm... I may need to get one for kitbashing.


And a Traffic James for the memes. (I need to use him for Urban Manhunt.)

New Osprey article up, and it does seem to be an odd armored cockpit.

It could be using cameras. So instead of a wide open shield it has a strip of cameras in two positions (upper and lower) which then feed back info to the pilot inside behind the protective shield of metal.

Making it more expensive to produce and thus a limited production design.

Were the attack buggies always that big? I recall they were smaller than the tanks. Maybe that's a new plastic kit?

I think that’s the new command vehicle that comes with the new starter. It’s bigger than the recon buggies are.

I think it makes sense that the Osprey doesn't fit as well as some of the other units aesthetically. It was an early design that was eventually scrapped in favor of the original raven chassis.

Also, I'm in love with that Scourge tower. I hope they come up with some thematic rules to use with it (as an orbital elevator or something similar).

Someone on FB is already floating the idea for ramming that tower with strike carriers or corvettes.

It’s too good to be merely a token. I’m going to have to get it (next time because budget) and use some Scourge Station Upgrade bits to make a proper vessel out of it.

There are photos floating around of some new Resistance units, including g a slightly different version of the lifthawk. Speculation is that these sculpts are for a plastic starter. However, everything went on hold for Coronavirus. The Behemoths were supposed to come out earlier this year, and they still haven’t. On Facebook, one of the head honchos stayed that the Resistance fleet cruiser and frigate boxes were being put off for now, too. I believe they’ve also said the new PHR starter was deliberately delayed also, although some online speculation runs that they are having trouble with the plastics manufacturer.

So, no one really knows when anything will come out.
