Spartan Spectacular

Anyone who visits this blog, Paint and Biscuits or the Spartan Games website will know that the fine chaps at Spartan have been very busy lately, with a bevy of sneak peaks hitting the blog pages.

Amongst the plethora of toys was the Firestorm Armada Dreadnoughts. Slowly leaked over a number of weeks, players of this fine space combat romp have been scouring the interwebs to find out when they’ll be coming out. Well I can tell you it’ll be next month. Just in time for Christmas so reserve a portion of your present budget from the wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend – delete as appropriate – for you dreadnought of choice. Prices start at £17 and go up to £23 in the case of the Aquan ship, but if you’ve seen size compared to the battleships, that’s still excellent value.

And before anyone asks, yes I’ll be getting a couple for review. And in case anyone’s interested, the destroyers will be out the same time in packs of 2 for between £9 and £10.50.

In other Spartan news Phase 3 of Uncharted Seas is rolling out with yet more choice models some of which can be seen below…


The Destroyer of Worlds

Today it’s Firestorm Armada’s turn to get some shiny new ships in the form of destroyers. I’m a massive fan of this game mainly because the ships are gorgeous and these are no exception. As you’ll see they’re all as sexy as the other ships in the range. Although I have to say that the Aquan ships is, once again, a bit of a departure from the rest of the Aquan range.

It’s not a complaint, just an observation. But I can see Aquan players getting irritated by this lack of direction. Personally I love this and the Aquan dreadnought, I think they’re both very bold designs but had I just spent £30+ on a fleet I think I’d feel a little bit confused as to how current that fleet is.

The rest of the ships, as you’ll see, stay true to their roots and I may have to add them to the dreadnoughts to review when they’re released…
