Storm Zone: Battle for Valhalla

Written by Spartan Games | Tags:

As war rages across the Storm Zone, forces on both sides of the conflict struggle desperately to gain the upper hand. In the unregarded Crowthorne System, an overlooked star not too far from the turbulent frontlines, the Terran Alliance has constructed a top secret research facility, called Valhalla Station, hidden deep in the system’s asteroid belt.

Here, concealed away from the enemy’s keen eyes, a new breed of Terran Alliance Battleship is under development. With markedly superior engine design, revolutionary fold space drives and top range shielding, the new Tyrant Class is nearly ready to strike back at the invading Dindrenzi Federation.

The Dindrenzi Federation

Acting on a tip off from an expert RSN operations team, the Dindrenzi strike force prepares to make the Fold Space jump to the rumoured Valhalla facility. Trusting well in the Dindrenzi maxim of dominance through superior firepower, their devastating arcbolt railguns are primed for destruction.

However, as the first prototype – the NTSC Spearpoint – prepares to emerge from Valhalla Station, a Dindrenzi scouting force discovers unexpected activity in the system, and readies a force to investigate. Led by a recently designed Praetorian Class Battleship, the DNS Warlord, the Dindrenzi are determined to smash this newly built Battleship at its berth, hammering flat the Terran retaliation before it can gain momentum.

The Dindrenzi Federation

One of the first examples of the heavy Praetorian Class Battleship, the DNS Warlord is both a formidable warship and a fully equipped command centre for the Dindrenzi Admiral and his staff to organise their fleet whilst on operations deep in enemy territory.

Carnage is set to ensue, as these behemoths and their attendant fleets clash amid the asteroid fields of the Crowthorne system. Will the Terran’s newest war machine be crushed on its maiden voyage, or will it prove its mettle in the fires of battle?

The Terran Alliance

Guarding the top secret Valhalla Station is a patrol fleet of top line Terran warships. Pictured above you can see the Teuton Cruisers and Armsman Frigates conducting a routine sweep of the Crowthorne asteroid belt.

The Storm Zone: Battle for Valhalla Box Set is designed to introduce two players to the Firestorm Armada galaxy. Through a series of fun and exciting scenarios it will tell a gripping story, and talk players through the game engine. Each scenario will bring new elements to the game, allowing new players, and veterans learning the Second Edition rules, to get to grips with the mechanics in manageable chunks.

The Terran Alliance

And here the revolutionary Tyrant Class Battleship performs a test flight under close escort. All systems are green as its shield panels charge and its mighty engines power up.

Add to this two good sized fleets of stunning new models, all the tokens, templates and dice you need to play and of course, the full Hardback Rulebook, and this great value box is clearly a must for all aspiring Firestorm Armada Admirals!

Research Station

The Valhalla Research facility was created by the Terran Alliance military with the aid of scientists from Hawker Industries. Its sole purpose is the design of new warships and military weaponry that can be used by Alliance of Kurak races to win the war. The facility is manned with the greatest minds of the Kurak Alliance and protected by handpicked military personnel, all veteran of countless campaigns. The first secret project to come to fruition has been the design of the Tyrant Class Battleship, a vessel that features new engine and shield technologies.
