PostSat Sep 26, 2015 2:54 pm

Beasts of War talking with Andy Chambers and Dave Lewis about Dropfleet Commander.

A lot of details come out in this video. This game is looking incredible.

More than 30minutes of DFZ talk. Was a good video.
Nice and structured.

Very much enjoyed watching that. First time I've cared enough to watch a BoW video. For those who don't want to watch it, Dave says they are aiming for the end of Oct for the KS and June for the game to begin coming out.

BoW were canvassing members for questions.

Really exciting, and a great interview.

Kickstarter will have an exclusive mini, but it will just be a cruiser variant ("battle cruiser"). Basically heavy cruiser armament, with minor carrier capability, but without any extra point defence systems.

I think I've explained it poorly.
It will have an exclusive mini, but based on other things said by the team, you can build a slightly different looking version of the same loadout with the cruiser plastic kit. So, it may be more of a "prototype battlecruiser" rather than the only way to field one. They've said the sole purpose of the KS is to get production in plastic from the get-go, and they are being careful not to undermine retail.

What I take from that, is that the KS will be for the plastic starter set, and potentially the plastic kits. The resin releases, will be released in the standard manner (ie through hawk and retailers). The exception is that a limited edition ship is likely to be resin drop-in parts, because it will be a lower volume. It's possible the "exclusive mini" will be limited to a single cruiser component in resin, that looks different from the standard cruiser hull??

I'm pretty sure that the KS exclusive is just the sculpt. The ship type will be available as a different scoulpt through retailers after the KS. I saw every possible interview about Dropfleet and this is always how it is hinted at.
Also it would make perfectly sense in how Hawk is doing their business. They take great care not to not affront anyone.

When interrogating Dave about it at invasion it's just a different sculpt. The normal battlecruiser will have the guns mounted on the top and bottom of it

What I heard Dave say when they showed the sneak peek of the KS exclusive model was "this is one of the Kickstarter exclusives..." [emphasis mine]

So, more angry faces from Scott...

But, honestly, they need to have some exclusives for a KS to work the way people expect it to, and the end goal is to get the funding they need for all four Starter Sets, and that's about £20,000 per sprue, so...

Dave also emphasized that they want to make sure Retailers don't get screwed by the Hawk KS, so if we want Dropfleet to get funded so that we can have amazing plastic ships as well as just the game itself, back the bloody Kickstarter, Folks!!!

:D

I'm predicting KS will be at target value in less than half time. Not worried at all. Those minis are just way to beautiful not to make an impact across the community. Then they'll have a sneap peak at the rules and sold. ;)
