Marauders Rebuild

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...

Fleets of Renown

A few weeks ago we asked you to send in pictures of your Firestorm Armada Fleets. We had a fantastic response with lots of images of fantastic colour schemes, fleet themes, and paint jobs. We have selected a few of our favourites to share with you all. Rob Martin sent us in a picture of his Sorylians resplendent in a bright blue and yellow colour scheme. The painting is very crisp and neat and really stands out on the table top. Lon Porter’s Directorate are an imposing sight as they glide across the table top in this striking red and white...

Haakon Viers and the Destroyers of Worlds

After getting my hands on the new Zenian League Alliance Fleet Guide and pouring over the vast array of amazing models laid out before me, I knew it was time for my Dindrenzi Fleet to return to the tabletop once more and reap victory in the name of Rense. I wanted to give my Fleet an identity of its own, with a very distinct colour scheme and background story. After a few colour tests I settled on the blue/grey hull plating with yellow detailing and bright blue engine glows. These colours work nicely together and stand out nicely on the...
