At Gen con one of the very first things I had the opportunity to do was to sit down with Neil Fawcett from Spartan Games.   It was the first time they visited us in the states and I think it’s the beginning of many more.

I did two interviews with them where we chat about Firestorm Armada, the return of Uncharted Seas, Dystopian Wars, Planetfall, and of course HALO. The first is below.  I had to refilm it because of the background noise, Neil has a soft voice.   I wasn’t going to keep this interview at all, but there is enough in it that we didn’t cover in the second interview that I couldn’t ignore it.

FAZR01 Zenian League RSN Starter Fleet
As one of the most popular Alliance Nations, the Zenian League RSN now makes its appearance as a Starter Fleet. Inside this bundle you get 1 x Battleship, 3 x Cruisers and 6 x Frigates. The models are a combination of pewter and resin and you also get Statistic Cards and 10 x Acrylic Flight Stands. Please Note: This Starter Fleet comes in a large blister and is not boxed.





FAEX02 TA-4 Star Port
Originally designed by the Terran Alliance, this superb feat of space engineering has stood the test of time. With its four hanger bays and lethal weapon systems a Star Fort is an excellent addition to any Firestorm Armada fleet. The model is also an ideal addition to scenario and campaign settings, acting as a perfect victory objective.





FAEX03 Geminon Class Repair Station
The Geminon Repair Station acts as a hub for space-based ship repairs and can be fielded by any race. Prolific in its use across the galaxy, the toughness of this installation, which is commonly fielded in the middle of combat zones, is respected by ship commanders.
