New 3D Viewer Goes Live

Hi Everyone, I am most pleased to be able to tell you that our new 3D Viewer is online. We will be uploading new models to the viewer and this will allow you to view them in all of their glory! Please note that the models have been optimised for online viewing, which means they can even be viewed on mobile phones with a web browser. In order to get them to load efficiently we reduced their size (aka reduced the polygon count) so if you like the models in the 3D viewer you’ll love the models we make because they will be even more detailed. Here are a couple of links to get you...

Well Derek’s incessant...

The 2017 Firestorm Galaxy

Welcome to this update on Spartan Games’ Firestorm Galaxy as I detail our plans for the next year and beyond. The first thing to address is the major changes that have impacted both our Firestorm Armada and Firestorm Planetfall miniature games, changes which we did not fully explain to our customers. I would therefore like to start with an apology for our poor communications as we reshuffled development, and putting that to one side, I want to now move forwards and explain the important changes we have implemented and what that means for our exciting sci-fi setting this year and beyond. I...
