Dystopian Wars 2.5 Explained – Part 1

Hello everyone, With the new Dystopian Wars 2.5 Core Rulebook about to ship out very shortly we thought it would be a good idea to provide an overview of what to expect in this new rulebook and to create a central location to discuss the changes made we have made. We will be looking at the contents of the new book over the next couple of blogs. The first thing to emphasise is that this is very much version 2.5 and NOT version 3.0. This means that the core game engine remains the same. This means the basics of play, the look of a stats and so...

Firestorm Armada Design Overview

Hello All! Spartan Derek here. This is a follow-up blog to Spartan Neil’s earlier communication to you all regarding the changes in our organisational structure here at Spartan Games. As of now, all design and deadline execution of all projects for Firestorm Armada and Firestorm Planetfall are my responsibility – designing rules, answering queries, hitting deadlines for creation, etc. After this, Spartan Neil and his guys then take over to put things into ‘pretty text’ for us all, but this cannot happen unless I and my team do our...

The Deliverance Engines

When the events on and above Proteus Prime transpired no one, aside from some of the most ancient minds in the Aquan Sebrutan, could have predicted what the future would bring and the series of cataclysmic events which were about to unfold across the Firestorm Galaxy. No one knows where the first machines arrived. Hundreds, or possibly even thousands of them, spread from Caymaas deep in Saurian Territory to Melthen in Relthozan space. They just appeared, and they sat there silently waiting. The Aquans were the first to name them –...

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...

A Clash of Wolves Captain Vladimir Nikonov – the Black Wolf: A Russian renegade, scourge of the seas, and the most notorious mercenary of the Sturginium Age. For more than a decade he has defied the will of the Tsar of all Russia itself, carving his own path and, in the process, managing to create a covert empire courted by sovereigns and governments across the world. But Nikonov is not, despite his mercenary status, without honour, and he has not forgotten his friends. Now, one such person requires help that only he can give. Goscia...
