Somthing Big This Way Comes – Halo:Ground Command Dropships!

May 19th, 2016

Something big is coming from Spartan Games for their Halo: Ground Command game. The UNSC Pelican Dropship and the Covenant Phantom Dropship are headed this way.

“These are two of the biggest models we’ve had the fortune to make for our Halo games,” explains Spartan Games Creative Director, Neil Fawcett. “We showed the Pelican off at Salute 2016 in London, and Halo fans loved it. Folk who weren’t even war gamers told us they wanted one. And folks’ eyes lit up when they heard the Phantom was coming. So we figured we had to figure out how crazy demand for the models will be, so as to be able to satisfy demand when the new tabletop ground game launches.”

Each measures over 12 inches long and is an awesome addition to any gamer’s tabletop or even collection shelf! As you can see from the images, the model has been developed from actual in-game digital models to guarantee an incredible level of accuracy.  Each set will contain one highly detailed, multi-part resin model, as well as a number of additional pertinent pieces, including large acrylic flight stant, faction miniatures (it is a Dropship after all), weapon fits, ownership certificate and full assembly instructions. Some pewter components may be included.

The renders shown aren’t 100% complete and so they may change a little between preorder and delivery.

Spartan Games to produce a HALO Miniatures Game

February 11th, 2015

Spartan Games has entered into a License Agreement with Microsoft Corporation to design and produce tabletop miniatures games for “Halo®”, the global entertainment phenomenon. The first products will be on sale around the world through Spartan Games’ sales and distribution channels in 2015.

The award winning “Halo” franchise was first seen on the Xbox in 2001, but has since transcended video games to build a worldwide fan base of millions and inspired best-selling novels, comic books, action figures, apparel and more. Now exciting tabletop miniatures games can be added to the list.

Neil Fawcett, Creative Director, Spartan Games said “Our design team are huge fans of ‘Halo’ and this opportunity is the icing on the cake for them. After six years of successfully creating our own games and models, we can now work with Microsoft to bring epic ‘Halo’ spaceship battles to gaming tables around the world. And if that’s not enough, we’re making fast and furious ground combat games as well. Hard to tell what is more exciting: invading Reach with our Covenant Fleet or assaulting ground defences with Spartans and UNSC Marines?”

Planetfall is coming from Spartan Games

September 13th, 2014

Spartan Games  is hugely excited to announce the much-anticipated launch of Planetfall – a fast-paced, action packed game of massed 10mm armoured and infantry conflict set in the Firestorm Armada galaxy.

Devastating tanks, sleek aerial units, crushing artillery, orbital drop-ships and elite infantry forces fight over objectives, each side seeking to achieve their key objectives at the expense of the other. Planetfall uses an ugo-igo system, with an activation mechanism based around Helixes – the building blocks of every force. Games are tactical, combat is ferocious, and the gameplay engine is built around Spartan Games’ established Exploding D6 mechanic, making it fast and intuitive.

Spartan Games announced new September releases for Firestorm Armada

August 18th, 2014

Spartan Games have announced new releases for the Alliance Nations in Firestorm Armada, the Veydreth Cruiser Group, Gunship Group and Patrol Fleets.

The Veydreth are a race of brutal raiders, native to Muishkin’s Rift in the galactic southern regions of Terran Alliance space. They are large, powerful creatures, fearsome in appearance and nicknamed ‘star dragons’ by early Terran explorers. In space combat, the Veydreth utilise swift and maneuverable craft with vessels carrying large weapon arrays, built around the most powerful drive systems they can maintain.

The Onslaught Class Gunship is the Veydreth’s answer to pack hunting. Fielded in Squadrons of 2-3 vessels this craft is designed to bring the enemy to its knees using lightning fast ambush techniques.

Cruisers of this race tend to come in two forms: the heavy hitting Carnivore Class or the devastating Stalker Assault Carrier which, as the name implies, is designed to board and destroy enemy vessels from within.

At the heart of a Veydreth Patrol Fleet is the Predator Class Battleship, designed to strike fear in the hearts of any enemy that faces it. In turn this vessel is supported by Savage Class Destroyers and Reaver Class Corvettes.  Included in this set: Predator Battleship x1, Savage Destroyer x3, Reaver Corvette x5. Plus dice, TAC card deck, tokens, and templates.
