May ’13 Release

Written by Admin | Tags: , ,

Spartan Games is pleased to announce our massive May 2013 release, and have we got some truly exciting new models for you!

Let’s look at Dystopian Wars first as we roll out two new Alliance Nations: the Chinese Federation and the Australians, both the Royalists on the side of the Britannians and the Free Australian Mercenaries. Check out our three new boxed sets and choose which one will aid your campaign to conquer the world!

Also for Dystopian Wars comes a convenient new way to buy your models. We’ve collected together various devastating machines of war into themed boxed sets, so it is now even easier for your LGS to stock Dystopian Wars, and for you to expand your forces.

We are excited to bring you our Firestorm Armada Community-led new small ships, created with the help of FA fans. Check out these cool new additions.

Lastly, we add real character to Dystopian Legions with each nation’s double acts, which deliver a new Sergeant & Officer to your ever expanding Legions armies. And let’s not forget our first two Ironclad Tanks, giving you tons of destructive firepower on the battlefield.

These models will be shipping from 29th May 2013. From today, you can place your advance orders in the Spartan Games Online Store to ensure you do not miss out on these exciting new releases.

Chinese Federation and Australians Join the Action!

Long considered the ‘Sleeping Giant’ of the East, the Chinese Federation is rapidly gaining traction as a world power. Its mighty Warships are entirely unlike the vessels of other nations. Hulls plated in armour of extraordinary resilience, the Federation’s ships sacrifice speed in favour of incredible durability. Often likened to a castle wall, a fleet in battle will pound its foes with rocket barrages and broadside volleys, all the while impervious to long range attacks. They then swing round to bring devastating sonic and flame weaponry to bear at close quarters and steam in amongst the enemy fleet.

Chinese floating fortresses are a wondrous sight to behold – sprawling castles bedecked in oriental decoration held high above the earth or waves on thrumming repulsion engines. The mighty Zhanmadao Dreadnought is the pinnacle of Chinese technological advancement.

However, the Chinese Federation is not the only new nation to rock the foundations of Dystopian Wars. Check out the new Australian Naval Battle Group! When the Australian nation split into the Royal Australians and the Commonwealth of Australia, each side took with them half of the Australian Fleet. Brand new ships at the time, they have now seen many years of service under both flags, constantly being re-armed and refitted to their owner’s requirements. Royalist ships have been ungraded with the finest advancements in Britannian gunnery and shield technology, whilst the Commonwealth, with their close ties to the Covenant of Antarctica, have upgraded their ships to carry energy-based weapons. The parts necessary to make either Australian faction are included in the Naval Battle Group.

To round off this blockbuster Dystopian Wars release we have three more armoured models for you to add to your ground forces. They are the fast and flexible FSA Defiance Class Small Robots, the intimidating CoA Colossus Class Small Robots and the lethal Minsk Class Tank Destroyer, each bringing something new to the table and promising to add even more intensity to your battles.

New Dystopian Legions Sergeants, Officers & Ironclads

It’s another fantastic month for Dystopian Legions as two mammoth Ironclads enter the fray and each nation gets a new Sergeant and Officer!

The blitzkrieg tactics of the Prussian Empire are exemplified in the towering iron behemoth that is the Walze Ironclad. The Pioneer Ironclad provides line-shattering firepower to the forces of the Federated States of America. The size and weight of these spectacular models must be seen to be believed, and now is your opportunity to make them yours!
