Hawk Wargames Newsflash

Some GenCon news from Hawk Wargames...
Newsflash 2 - Pre Gen Con 2015 (24/07/15)
The Hawk Wargames team will be touching down in Indianapolis for Gen Con 2015 very soon, and we’re bringing a range of new products, some sneak peaks and a couple of exclusive announcements as well. Alongside our July releases (on pre-order on our site and available at Gen Con) we’re continuing our bumper summer releases starting with:
The Dropzone Commander Special Edition Rulebook
We are proud to announce the release of our core rulebook in a special, limited edition, hardback run.

The book has been reimagined, with new cover artwork, Spot UV front-plate, printed end papers and a marker ribbon, printed on thick paper stock, and finished with a high quality silk coating. New artwork and content sit alongside sharpened photographic images, creating a gorgeous tome for your coffee table, sci-fi library or gaming room.
The 176 pages include unit stat lines, background and the most up to date rules in line with the forthcoming errata.
Only 1500 copies of this special limited edition hardback book will ever be printed with a small number of copies available at the Hawk Wargames booth at Gen Con this year. Copies will be available in limited numbers from Dropzone stockists and via our website. There will also be a very small number for sale at select shows. More details will be coming soon, but if you are at Gen Con this year, make sure to get to the Hawk stand early to ensure you don't miss out.

Hawk Wargames at Gen Con
We’ll be located on stand 1943, and will have a range of new units and some new famous commanders to see, along with our full range of painted miniatures. We will also have some new releases and early access to future releases. This year’s show only model - the double decker Battle Bus - will be available from our stand, along with a number of metal Strike Carriers, a limited promotional model from our upcoming game, Dropfleet Commander.
Members of our games design team for Dropfleet Commander will be at the show. We’ll be talking about the game rules and mechanics in depth, as well as how you can get your hands on a copy; come and have a chat for more info!
For those who can’t wait, here’s a sneak peak of a brand new design for the Scourge:
This year at Gen Con, we are also planning on some extra new releases and supporting products to sit alongside our complete model range, including pins and T-shirts, with offers and bundles only available on the stand too.
Gaming at Gen Con
Once again we have a fully sold out tournament at Gen Con, so if you want to find out more about how the game plays at a tournament size, why not head over to watch some games (ICC: Hall C : Green : 49-52).
We also have an open gaming table available on our stand (booth number 1943) with a sign up sheet for each day, so if you fancy a game against someone, and already have some models, come along, sign up and have a game of Dropzone Commander.
If you haven't had a chance of playing Dropzone Commander before, we will also have a number of Demo tables available on the stand, run by our fantastic team of Hawk Talons.
Beyond Gen Con
For all of those not able to get to Gen Con this year, or who are based further away, Autumn Invasion 2015 Tournament and Open Weekend is coming up on the 19th-20th September, in Croydon (South London, UK). Tickets for this tournament are still available here and the Open weekend is free to attend. For more details on the venue and programme, check out the event information on our website >

We have more to come, and more announcements from us at Gen Con this year, so listen out for more to come...
We look forward to seeing you at Gen Con, Autumn Invasion or at one of our other up-coming shows,

- The Hawk Wargames team
