Deliberate tacticians who use battlefield control and pre-determined fire patterns to pin their enemies in place while their Heavy and Light Infantry Cadres move forwards to capture critical objectives – the Sorylian Collective are masters of the Long Game. The Sorylian Collective use a lot of Artillery to create areas of denial for their enemies, and...

Dystopian Legions Now Shipping

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.

Marauders Rebuild

The Marauders Rebuild The Storm Zone is ALWAYS busy. A maelstrom of war and villainy, invasion and expansion. And within this we have the Marauders, the space age equivalent of pirates of old. With Firestorm Armada 2.0 we improved a host of things for the core fleets and alliance nations, and we then turned our attention to the Marauder models and statistics. We can now re-visit the Marauders sometime after the events of the supplement where they were first introduced. The tides of war involving these inhabitants of the Rift have altered the...
