Spartan Games Newsletter

Some new releases from Spartan Games.....

Check out our October Release!
In our latest release for Halo: Ground Command we have turned our attention to two of the most eagerly awaited armoured vehicles from the Halo Universe: the UNSC Scorpion and Covenant Wraith. We've also got some really exciting changes happening to the way we sell our Dystopian Products, so read on to find out more!
Tanks for the memories
 
See what we did there? This month we'll be releasing both the highly-detailed UNSC Scorpion and the Covenant Wraith.


The UNSC Scorpion is a tank known far and wide to Halo fans, and now you have the ability to bring this fabulous vehicle to your tabletop games of Halo: Ground Command. Stunningly sculpted to accurately reflect the original video game design, our boxed set brings you one Scorpion tank hull in all of its glory, but with TWO turret choices - one to make the standard Scorpion and another to create the stunning Sun Devil Anti-Aircraft variant. Click here to order the UNSC Scorpion Box now!

The Covenant Wraith is a sleek armoured vehicle that glides effortlessly around the battle-field, engaging targets and destroying them with ease. Just like with the Scorpion Box, a single Wraith hull also comes with two weapon options: the standard Mortar turret and the Anti-Aircraft turret. Click here to order the Covenant Wraith Box now!
Changes in the Dystopian World 
 
With new models and rules in development, we've been taking a look at how we make Dystopian Wars and Legions more easily available to you. Interesting changes are going to be made in the coming months and we're very excited to share them with you. For more information on how this is going to work, check out our brand new blog here.

As expected Mantic Games new 'Star Saga' Kickstarter funded rather quickly...

Star Saga Kickstarter reaches $100,000 goal in less than two hours. Don't miss out!
Star Saga, the science fiction dungeon crawler featuring everyone's favourite intergalactic transdimensional bounty hunter Blaine, is now available to back on Kickstarter… and it reached its $100,000 goal in less than two hours, so a big thanks to everyone that has backed so far.

Just in case you've been under a meteorite for the past few days, Star Saga, is the successor to our 2014 release, Dungeon Saga, and features exciting story-driven elements and immersive game scenarios. Set in the Warpath Universe, Star Saga will see players guide a team of mercenaries through a heavily guarded compound in an effort to retrieve a cache of stolen technology. Players will encounter powerful aliens, mutated monsters, and be forced to make fateful choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns.

You can download the Star Saga alpha rules, if you fancy taking them for a spin at home, or you can watch a full play through video of mission two (with proxy components, we hasten to add) over on the Mantic Blog… perhaps get a cup of tea ready for that one, as it's an hour long.

After funding, we're already working our way towards the first stretch goal, which is some fantastic 3D scenery, such as computer terminals and a containment tank, that will all be unlocked when we reach $130,000. All the Early Bird pledges have sold out but you can still get involved for $100, so make sure you take a look at the Kickstarter page and let's start knocking down those stretch goals.
This superb computer terminal will be unlocked when we reach $130,000.

Some more 'The Hunt for Red October' and 'The Labyrinth' Board Game news from River Horse Games...

Monday 26/09/16
The Hunt for Red October game turn
Click the DEFCON counter above to see a quick preview of a turn!

The Hunt for Red October is coming to Indiegogo on the 3rd of October, check out this link to find out more! Today we are going to take a look at the second way of playing the game, the Hunt.

The Hunt

The hunt scenario lets players play through the 1990 masterpiece, one side as Marko Ramius and the other as the entirety of the soviet Navy. Is the Red Fleet enough to stop one silent submarine? Each turn the Red October will travel secretly across the board trying to reach either the American coast or a NATO ship if they can can convince them that they are trying to defect. Both sides are racing against the clock to achieve victory before the DEFCON counter reaches 1 and both players lose the biggest game of chicken in history.

Each game relies on timing, tactical positioning and excellent bluffing skills with Marko Ramius having the tactical edge with his many abilities and cards, use them all too early however and the Red Fleet will have no trouble finding your beleaguered sub, too late and... well, it will be too late.

Labyrinth pre-order ends

The Labyrinth pre-order period has ended, and thousands of copies are on container ships headed across the world, to arrive in November.

We would like to thank all of our lovely Goblins for all of their support. We will be picking one lucky pre-order to receive a Labyrinth 3-up model of their choice soon.

If you missed the pre-order period, then never fear! Labyrinth will be hitting all good game stores from November onwards, please contact your local to see if they can reserve you a copy!

Sunday Round-up

Another somewhat productive week despite the real world trying it's hardest to get in the way...


...despite not managing to get much done through the breach in Malifaux I did recruit a few more of Raging Heroes 'Toughest Girls of the Galaxy' namely Commander Elektra EisensteinNatasha 'KST Com Operator' and Svetlana, the Light of Freedom...


...and with any luck I'll be able to make the time to do those promised Malifaux unboxings as well. I'm also desperately trying to make time to do some features on the large pile of Word Forge Games Devils Run: Route 666 'BritAttack' models I've recently acquired...


...it also looks like my blog Facebook page is now doomed as a fortnight has gone by and Facebook are yet to resolve the issue. I can now therefore be found here instead where I'll be transferring as much of the original page content as I can and starting the painstaking process of rebuilding my nearly five hundred followers there from the fifty odd my new page currently has :-(


Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Devils Run: Route 666 - Brit Attack...

So my friendly local gaming store Titan Games started to stock Devils Run: Route 666 from Word Forge Games...well...they had a lot of stock for about two days...and by yesterday had a small amount of stock...


...and I had quite a lot of Brit Attack, my fellow hobbyist Brian had a lot of Skinners and three people who just popped in to say hello left with core boxes...


Now I just need to decide on whether I'm going to paint them in the default colour scheme or go for something a bit different...
