Quite interesting that there are two different approaches to answering this.

The old fogies with grey beards, open toe sandals and pullovers respond by periods, ie Ancients, Napoleonics, WW2 or whatever, the younger or newer gamers respond by systems such as Malifaux, Bolt Action, WH40K etc

It is clear that the vast majority of DZC players responding are the second category

Sadly I'm the first :oops:

Well I made be the age of the first but my list would be both

For historicals I would list the period (all periods except any from 1946 to the present but looking at Arab Israeli wars) almost any scale 15 mm or above.
Also play malifaux, 40k, whfb, some bolt action, star army5150, warlords. All 25mm

This is my first venture into such a small scale

Currently when it comes to games I've got a few on my plate alongside dropzone commander.

1.) Warmachine/Hordes. Its a fun game for what it is but its the type of game I really only like to play once in awhile because it can become very frustrating depending on the enironment you're playing in.

2.) Dystopian Wars. I have Russians, Americans, and the COA for this game and am looking forward to releases of some of the new fleets that will be coming out. Its a fun system with just enough depth and I really like the way combined arms are handled.

3.) Infinity. This scratches my 25/28mm sci-fi skirmish game itch. I love the models and the rules are really tight. Currently looking forward to see what the third edition of the rules will bring.

Right now these are the main three along with dropzone commander though my main opponent and I are looking into some of the games that Mantic is putting out like Dreadball and Deadzone. It seems that right now being a tabletop gamer we are spoiled for choices when it comes to games and selection.

I just found my cache of Battlemechs. I loved the game, though sometimes it was a lot more paperwork than worth it. I loved to play but too many of my group didn't. Ah well.

I used to play 40k as tau and imperial guard but found the battles were to slow unlike DzC

I played:

Warmachine, Hordes, Malifaux, Star Trek Attack Wing, Star Wars X Wing, Dropzone commander, hopefully Planetfall soon. Wild West Exodus also looks interesting, as does other stuff Spartan have on the go.

Hated Battletech btw. Played GW Specialist games but they are not being supported anymore, so whats the point?

We just ordered Operation Icestorm, I'm quite looking forward to Infinity. We proxied a game and it was amazing. As I've sworn off 40k Dropzone and Infinity will be the two I play.


I see a lot have come from 40k which is not surprising, but it's nice to see people lean away recently and expand into other games. GW needs the competition to square their selves away.

I always play the same ed D&D as Maverick and we want to try a Shadowrun game here soon.

well didn't post here it seems...

Played (but inactive/dropped):

- WH 40k: well let's just say the last 2 editions killed it for me... Had 3-4 fully painted big armies... now i have kept 2 of them out of nostalgia, no plans on returning so far.

- WHFB: got dropped to 40k because the prices are insane... still have my Skaven army for nostalgia but sold everything else.

- Inquisitor:... Gods i loved it... still have about 30 fully painted minis and some friends have some too... might be getting back into it but sold all of my spares...

- BFG: still have a fully painted GK fleet and like the game... might get a revival here local as some dudes bought some 2nd hand fleets...

- Epic Armaggeddon: Cool thing and i liked the 4 Games i had veryy much.. still have my whole Tyranid horde but noone to play with.

- Confrontation: played from 1.0 to 3.5 and then dropped it because of powercreep and insane releasepolitics, besides the company went dead... still have some Dwarves, Wolfen and Drunes i'm gonnna keep ^^

Still playing actively:

- Malifaux... well i do hench for them. 'nuff said.

- DZC... right now the most played atm because of local players available.

- SAGA: well i love Vikings and thus i have to play this...
