Laying The Grid.

So I put up a post recently on the Dropzone Commander Community page on Facebook.
It was a bit popular.

CQB Squad Analysis Part 2: Aarrgghh my brain is melting!

There might be some kind of Shaltari gate shenanigans going on here!

Welcome to the mind melting! 
If you haven't read part 1 it might be worth doing - here

I part 1 we looked at the effectiveness of CQB against different squads and how survivable they were (not only in CQB but in a building after a CQB). You may have noticed that I didn't rank the squads, this is because you can't just rank them on how good they are at taking a hit on 1 man/woman/thing.

CQB Squad Analysis Part 1: The easy bit

This is how I imagine Destroyers in CQB
(I may have used this before, but I can't find where, so screw it. you can have it again!)

CQB is like Marmite, some people love it and actively seek it out, some hate it and avoid at all costs! 
In Dropzone Commander CQB is quite a unique part of the game; DzC is a game of few dice rolls, but when a CQB happens you need large hands for the hoards of dice needed. It also does away with the standard roll to hit and roll to wound. It is streamlined for efficiency and I must say, I really like how it works.

You shouldn't judge a book by its cover

Cracking book, but who commissioned this cover?
It looks like a theatrical version of Star Wars.
Not many sayings in this world are as true the title to this post. For instance:

'Don't go out with wet hair, you'll catch your death.' False.
'Often, less is more.' This is clearly not true. I would argue my new TV with you.
'A carpenter is known by his chips.' I don't even really understand this one, but I would think a carpenter would be known through work on house fixtures and storage ideas, rather than their work with potatoes.

Character Building: The lists

The Cave Breaker, Jocasta Caine and Arthur J Wade
For those of you who made it to the end of our (super long) podcast, you may remember that we had a section called Character Building. In this feature we each made a 2000 point list using a famous commander from Reconquest: Phase 1, in a battle format. The main change to a clash format is the addition of a seventh battlegroup, and being able to add an extra squad here or there too.
