The Relthoza Core Helix

Posted by on Oct 28, 2014

The Relthoza Core Helix

The Relthoza have a noble tradition of blooding their younger warriors on the battlefields of the Firestorm Galaxy. The honour driven society demands acts of heroism and, most of all, victory! Only the strongest survive and defeat ends in death. With a Core Helix, a Relthozan Commander has access to a powerful combination of superior numbers and specialised Cloaking Technology. Leading the line is the Visith Heavy Tank – a strong bulwark of a vehicle housing a Relthozan warrior psy-linked into the machine to provide a powerful commanding...

Sorylian Collective Core Helix

The Sorylian Collective marshal their resources carefully only to expend them when maximum force can be delivered with mathematical precision. As the undisputed masters of long range weaponry and artillery, the Sorylians deliver punishment from afar, before closing in to unleash their Light and Heavy Infantry upon their shattered foes. Leading the line is the Hul’Ka Battle Walker armed with a terrifying Kor’Nak Heavy Cannon and Vaan Scatter Cannons. This hulking brute acts as an artillery platform as well as line breaker within a...

Terran Alliance Core Helix

Terran Alliance Core Helix

With a Terran Core Helix Commanders will find themselves able to field a strong, durable force, capable of withstanding much of the punishment that other forces can dish out, before closing to the optimal range for their unforgiving weapons! The Vidar Heavy Tank exemplifies this strategy with a combination of M205 ‘Magellan’ Cannon and Hammerstrike Missile Systems. The Heavy Tank engages the enemy at range using its missiles until within optimum range to deliver the knockout blow with the M205 – a weapon known to strike...

Dindrenzi Federation Core Helix

Dindrenzi Federation Core Helix

Inside a Dindrenzi Core Helix, Commanders have access to a large number of skimming hover vehicles that can perform lightning fast hit-and-run attacks against their enemies, allowing them to deliver punishing firepower against their foes before slipping away unseen. The largest vehicle in the Core Helix is the impressive Kratos Heavy Skimmer – a true battlefield predator, armed with Rail Gun technology that can give even the heavily shielded Leviathans a reason to be fearful! Next up are the Eris Medium Skimmers – a medium range...

Ready for Planetfall?

Have you given Spartan Games a ‘Like’ on Facebook? Those that have were treated to a first look at our painted Sorylian and Relthoza fleets. And that’s not all we revealed last weekend!

The Sorylian Collective use a lot of Artillery to create areas of denial for their enemies, and...

Dystopian Legions Now Shipping

Trailing clouds were lit orange by a westering sun. The troops moved slowly, in open formation, using the strewn rocks, copses of water-starved trees and bracken as cover. Spread out, with dirty and dark kit, this was worlds away from the tight drill and sparkling uniforms of the parade grounds in which Jean had begun his military career. Way ahead, Nicholas signalled: stop… spread out… down… enemy… look… a series of sharp gestures that the Section of Veteran French Marines responded to instinctively. A sharp whistle broke the...

The Helix Effect

A game of Firestorm Planetfall is played using what we call Battle Groups. In turn a Battle Group is made up of Helixes, and at the heart of each Battle Group is what we call the CORE HELIX.

Different Attached Helixes include: • Aerial Helix • Heavy Helix • Assault Helix • Recon Helix • Strike Helix (the Helix which will contain Leviathans) • Support Helix A Basic Battle Group is composed of ONE Core Helix to which a...
