This could be interesting:

I had given up on Dropfleet Commander before I ever got my Kickstarter package. When I did finally receive it I never opened it, it is still sitting in my garage. Some day I may open it and salvage some hopefully useful pieces from it, but I doubt very much that I will ever buy another Hawk product, regardless of who owns them.

This is probably a good thing. Economies of scale and (hopefully) having some folks only concentrating on production and fulfillment should make everything run more smoothly.

Dropfleet Commander is a very nice ruleset with some brilliant new mechanics. You should definitely give it a try.

KarlBergman, It is your money that you invested so I won't tell you what to do, but I will offer some free advise: I would move on from the hard feelings over the kickstarter. If you can put that episode truly behind you, you'll see that you have a very good game to work with in my opinion.

I keep wanting to try Dropfleet, as it's the only spaceship game that is taking place in low orbit. (OK, Attack Vector: Tactical does have a low-orbit mod, but that's different than a game entirely written around low orbit combat and orbital fire support)

Hopefully this Merger&Acquisition will speed up delivery of Hawk products.

I still need to force myself to read that dauntingly thick rulebook for Dropfleet Commander. But the models sure look cool!

I wonder if this will impact the Polyversal project. I know some of the minis were from Hawk.

nukesnipe – It shouldn't, Hawk's contribution to the project was received back in June:

Canuckinator – thanks; I'd forgotten that.

This is exciting news! Hawk was a victim of their own success. I am glad that people are being put back to doing what they do best:

David is sculpting and crafting games
TTCombat is handling logistics

That appears to be a step in the right direction and I'm excited for both companies… and for me!

I own Dropfleet Commander. I love the rules. The miniatures are sexy and easy to paint. I look forward to finding out what's next!

I noticed that over the past couple of weeks, that my distributor had gotten in a very large restock of Dropzone commander in.
