Rejoice fellow…er Spartans(?), there’s a bevy of shiny things from Spartan Games to spend are hard-earned cash on. Everything here will be available from the 4th July but can be pre-ordered from now.
First up is the all new Rense System Navy models. Which include a battleship, cruiser, heavy cruiser and carrier, all pictured below. These all look way cool and if the Dindrenzi weren’t such a bunch of bastards I would have had no choice but to indulge…aw who am I kidding…
There won’t be a box set as yet, so it’ll be clam packs all the way.
Firestorm Armada is (finally) getting its second edition rule book. According to Spartan it will include…
A complete list of stats, background stories, imagery… The Hardback Edition Master Rulebook has everything! This updated edition features the established core rules presented in a clear and concise fashion. It includes the latest errata and streamlined rules for Game Set-up, Terrain, Boarding and Wings. The opportunity has also been taken to include new photography, diagrams and illustrations throughout the book, complete with Fleet Lists for each nation and the current Firestorm Armada MARs; the perfect way to begin your campaign of terror in the Storm Zone!
The big thing for me there was, as I’m sure it is for many, wings. RRP a fairly reasonable £20.
But that’s not all. For those with a steam-powered inclinations, Dystopian Wars is getting its first campaign book. Long overdue in my opinion and a very welcome sight…
The first Campaign Book for Dystopian Wars details the bitter struggle between the Federated States of America and the Empire of the Blazing Sun. With the involvement of the Kingdom of Britannia, Prussian Empire and Covenant of Antarctica, this is a titanic struggle! Hurricane Season is fully illustrated and provides a series of exciting scenarios for you to play, detailing major actions in the campaign. The Covenant of Antarctica rules and Stats are included along with new rules for National Fleet Commodores, Amphibious Landings, Deployment Orders and more. Who will emerge victorious?
This is also £20 which seems a bit odd considering its not an essential purchase and the rule book is £4 cheaper. All I can say, as I will be buying it, is it better be good.
There’s also good news for those Dystopian Wars players who have dreamed of amphibious assault games. Both the large landing barge and a platform and small landing craft set will be available from July.
The cool thing about the large landing barge is that it comes with 7 stacks, including the Russian Coalition so one barge any faction and both cost £13.00.
Uncharted Seas also gets a couple of new releases. Most significantly the Iron Dwarves Citadel Armoured Walls which are just Steampunk enough that you could probably get away with using them for Dystopian Wars. And at £15.00 for the set it’s a bargain too.
The Floating Trader Town is just awesome and, again, for just £15.00 you’d be mad not to get it. Not so usable in Dystopian Wars but who cares?
