Hawk Wargames Newsletter

Hawk Wargames, makers of Dropzone Commander, put out a weekly (or so) newsletter.  There have been some complications with their initial production and this has caused some angst among eager customers.

This week's Newsletter lays out the reasons for the delays in product and the small number (two) of distributors.

As far as I'm concerned this is a class act.  They are upfront about the issues and what they are doing to fix them.  This company has been one man and his girlfriend.  That he has accomplished all that he has is amazing.  I'm looking forward to picking up a copy of the rule book this year, and models next year.

We wargamers tend to think of games company's as giant GW size corporations, or at least as medium sized businesses with a couple of dozen employees.  The truth is that most companies, especially in the smaller scales, are just one or two people.  Folks can rant and rave but it is what it is.  If you want a company to get bigger, push their game, buy their products and get them the money to expand.

Additionally, there is a new review of the game, in some detail, located here.  If you've been thinking about it, read the review.
