Well I'm back! it's been a long time since I last posted, essentially I decended into a bit of a sulk as I waited for my Dropfleet commander KS pledge to arrive, and although I worked on other projects including:
- Imperial Guard Kill team
- Horse Archers for Lion rampant
- Some Ancient Britons to use in Frostgrave
I didn't feel the urge to write about them, lost in the growing frustration of waiting my KS, as it turned out I was among a handful of orders that got lost and as such had to wait until the new year to receive it.
Don't get me wrong I haven't had to wait for DFC models; my friend Graeme received his pledge as one of the first and as such he gave me his KS "freebies" for the Scourge and Shaltari in exchange for my UCM & PHR Freebies (when I was due to get them). Also in the excitement of DFC shipping I bought a Scourge starter from a friend who backed at the highest pledge level and had enough starter sets to sell one off without issue.
With these models I have played two games, both of which are mediocre, but maybe this was tainted by my anger and frustration of not knowing what was going or when I was going to get my stuff.
Really this post is essentially nothing more than a list of what I got in a hope to invoke the passion for documenting my painting process and general blogging again.
|Opened KS box|
|Sprues for the 2 player starter set: Scourge top, UCM bottom|
|Shaltari Starter fleet add on|
|Freebies: 1 cruiser and Frigate sprue for each race.|

This is not a plastic to be cut using your old faithful, glue and paint encrusted hobby knife, this plastic requires a new sharp precision knife. I have also found that when cutting the Shaltari from their sprue some of the "spines/transport nodes" snap off.
|Flight stands, dice and tape measure|
|Flight asset add on (fighters,bombers & torpedoes)|
|Activation cards add on|
|Quick reference guides, battlegroup cards, building instructions and flight dial stickers for the "Freebies"|
|2 player set: Rulebook with vertical sleeve, battlegroup cards, quick reference guides, building instructions, flight dial stickers, cardboard game tokens and two fold out map sheets.|
Well that will do for now in regards to the DFC KS but I hope to continue with my blog and that it's helpful to you as it is to me.
