THLZ Episode 11: Some are more useful than others...

These are the ships that are there to get the work done, some are like me and get a lot done, some are like Jason the Bruce and only take up space. 

Just kidding Jason you are useful unlike some of the Cruisers we talk about this episode. Every faction has a workhorse, and every faction has the creepy uncle that only shows up for the holidays. If you don't get it, you don't have any uncles. Damion is also pretty salty about the effectiveness of PHR shooting.  And Damion meant to say Alan, not Adam...

THLZ Episode 10: Lets experiment with some things

The Experimental Rules From Hawk Have Been Made Public, Reactions Are Positive...

Damion, Jason, and myself finally talk about the experimental rules that Hawk and the Talons have been working on in the backroom. We like them for the most part, hell even I agree with the nerfs to the shaltnangains.

THLZ Episode 9: They Can Make the Mighty Fall.

Heavy Crusier's don't Care, Heavy Crusier's don't give a...

Myself, Peter, and eventually Jason the Bruce give our two cents on the Heavy cruisers in the game, and for the most part they are all good.  We also talk about Christoph Schult's UCM painting tutorial, and Robert Arciszewski sent in another Battle Report, and we cover some custom scenarios from CANCON and The First DutchDropfleet Tournament.

Ready Your Fleet... For Paint.

In a Galaxy of Grey, This Looks Awesome. 

Christoph Schult was kind enough to send us the painting tutorial he made for painting his UCM fleet. Check it out, I hope you learn something, and become inspired.

When I posted the first test pieces for this scheme I got asked to do a tutorial, so here is how to paint Battlefleet Vanadium:

THLZ Episode 8: The Slightly Dynamic Duo

If the Battleships are King, Battlecruisers are the Crown Prince.

We're back, and talking about battlecruisers, but due to real life it is just myself and Damion (Lysenis). These right now kickstarter exclusive ships can pack a punch and in this episode we tell you our opinion of much they pack. Damion (Lysenis) also gives you what information he can about the changes coming to the game.

Battle Report: PHR Vs. Shalthari 1250 Points

The both lists were different...

So on a fine Saturday in the past, The Post Human Republic moved into to orbit where they engaged an unsuspecting Shaltari fleet.  This game was played with Scenario 1: Take and Hold at 1250 points using the Rapid Response approach type.

This is my first attempt at a video battle report, myself and Will decide on the spur of the moment to record it. I am fairly happy with how it turned out both audio and video quality wise. Hopefully this will be the first of many.

Because Cardboard Is Silly

Dropfleet Tokens by Alex Barton 

Dropfleet commander; troop and defence laser counters for the UCM

I love the visuals of a game on the table and will try and escape card markers and tokens whenever possible, for DfC that's proved quite a challenge but I'm getting there!
