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...

Posted by on Aug 13, 2017

Core Race Expansion Sets The Firestorm Armada Core Faction Expansion Sets are an important part of our Kickstarter Campaign, appealing to many thousands of existing Firestorm players around the world. The new models inside these boxes have been chosen by our rules designers important expansions which either add ‘narrative’ flavour to an existing race or plug a tactical ‘requirement’ for that race. Just to recap, we have six Core Races for Firestorm Armada: Aquan Prime Dindrenzi Federation Sorylian Collective Terran...

Return to Proteus Prime

Return to Proteus Prime

Our new Firestorm Galaxy storyline started in 2014 when we launched Planetfall, our 10mm true-scale ground warfare game. The story introduced us to the planet of Proteus Prime, a mysterious and until then hidden world which held a dark secret which had been kept by the Aquan Prime and Tarakians for generations. In 2015 the exciting story took its next step with the Return of the Overseers 2-player set, an expansion to the Firestorm Armada space combat game. Both sets bring together the forces of the Aquan Prime and Directorate as they...

Massive new update for Dystopian: Fleet Action Arrives

We are most pleased to provide you with the latest version of the Dystopian: Fleet Action (DWFA) fast-play rules, along with a host of updated model statistics. For those unfamiliar with the rules, they are Spartan Games’ easy-to-learn, fast-action version of Dystopian Wars. Think of DWFA as a lot more streamlined than the ‘regular’ Dystopian Wars with a lot less rules, MARs, Munitions and Generators. It also dispenses with some mechanics such as Commodores and TAC Cards. While this does diminish the granularity of the...

Firestorm: Strike Force Q&A

Firestorm: Strike Force Q&A

Hi All, Spartan Neil here and I thought I would create a Q&A document to run through some questions about our newly launched fighter combat game Firestorm: Strike Force. So, let’s dive in: Why did Spartan Games create this type of game? It is fair to say that games like Dystopian Wars (DW) and Firestorm Armada (FA) are big projects with many factions and models and complex rules. The statistic builds alone are a large task. If we look at DW we have 600 or so models existing in a vibrant game space and it continues to grow. Whilst FA is...

The Firestorm Armada Galaxy Expansion

The Firestorm Galaxy Expansion Every time we do research with our customers a couple of things hit me: firstly, the fact that so many of you are kind enough to respond so quickly; secondly, that because of this we really must do it more often because the data we get is priceless and assists us in forging the games for the whole community of players. As an example let’s discuss some of data from our latest survey before we move on to the upcoming Firestorm Galaxy Kickstarter and then finally talk about another favour I would like to request...
