UCM Ships for Dropfleet Commander

I've finished painting the UCM (United Colonies of Man) half of the Dropfleet 2-player boxed set. First off...nice models. Great sculpts and very fine castings in hard plastic. No complaints. The assembly went fine, although there are some small parts to keep track of while you're gluing stuff together.

The three cruisers (Moscow, Berlin and Seattle class) can be built as any of the game's cruiser you're left with plenty of spare bits that don't get used.

The four frigates (two Toulon and two New Orleans class) come from a sprue that will build any of the game's UCM frigates.

For reference purposes, you might want to know how the Dropfleet ships compare in size to other game systems. Here they are with a few ships from Firestorm Armada...

...and here with some ships from Battlefleet Gothic. As you can see, the miniature sizes in both cases are pretty much identical to those other game systems.

Well, now there is a decision to make. Continue building Dropfleet ships, or move over to Burning of Prospero...which just got released today. In either case, I'm ready to play some Dropfleet!

'Til next time.


  1. Thanks for posting the comparisons, very helpful. Nice collection and the Dropfleet ships look cool.


  2. Looks good, your colour scheme is subtle and effective. I'm eagerly waiting for my pledge to arrive.
