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...

Posted by on Jul 18, 2017

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...

Schloss Saint Michael

Schloss Saint Michael

The Scandinavian Teutonic Order’s primary military base in Western Greenland is a sight to behold. Forged from strongly built but highly standardised construction units, Schloss Saint Michael is designed to expand with the Order’s presence on the land mass. At its heart is the mighty Communications Vault, a heavily fortified structure draped in banners and protected by heavy Ack-Ack positions. This is the nerve centre of the complex, from where leading Komturs and Marshals can operate from a heavily guarded command fortress. The Vault can...

Short Story: The Castle in the Frost

Short Story: The Castle in the Frost

Short Story 1 by Spartan Franco The Castle in the Frost It was early spring in Greenland, the tipping point between the island’s long, harsh winter and short but violently brilliant summer. But the nights were yet long, and the chill of winter only little dissipated. Snow still lay thickly on the ground in many areas; even here around the town of Gothåb, which was blessed with light and warmth by the technological gifts of the Sturginium Age. Gothåb had become, for want of a better description, a boom town. Though it still occupied the...
