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 colour scheme. Pierre Cailleau sent us this...

The Persecution Begins Here

The Directorate have a penchant for naming their ships in a way that leaves you fully aware of an individual ship’s intent. So when a Dreadnought comes along called Persecution…well you have to know pain is coming your way. As you can see the hull is holding a classic Directorate large vessel design, but with an elongated front section that houses the power plant for its larger, front firing weapon system. When placed next to a Judgement Class Battleship for scale comparison the Persecution certainly holds its own. Volume wise the vessel is intimidating to say the least…and...

Antarcticans: The Second Wave

The Galen Class Escort comes with a Fore Gun (S) that has a 270 degree arc of fire, but its primary role is that of providing AA defence for the larger Antarctican vessels. The Prometheus Class Dreadnought is a major fighting force that any enemy fleet commander needs to treat with respect, or quickly meet their maker. At the front you can see its Particle Accelerator weapon (the rear of the model shows the massive housing that is home for this weapon’s power system) and the four Main Turrets (P) can either fire conventional projectiles OR be swapped out for Energy Turrets. Unlike the...

Magenta Goes to Gen Con

News has reached us of a Republique of France (RoF) Naval Force that is currently crossing the Atlantic, heading to the Gen Con 2011 gaming convention. Intelligence indicates that the force, which is several hundred models strong, is entirely composed of Magenta Class Battleships – both in a flying and surface mode of operation, and paired in packaging. The force is acting as a vanguard force for a much larger French force that will arrive later in the year. As you can see from the renders the French engineers have crammed plenty of detail into the Magenta, giving fleet captains plenty...
