Spartan Games Newsletter

Spartan Games community newsletter for August...

Welcome to August's Community Newsletter!
A very different school project!

A few months ago, we were approached by a teacher with a very different idea for a school project. Soren used a variety of hobby and craft items to create a wonderfully rich and imaginative space system map, through which his students could explore and learn about space in eight different teams. We were really pleased to support this project and donated some of our original Halo: Fleet Battles ships and asteroids. Soren incorporated the Epoch and ORS-class ships into the game as motherships for each of the student teams.
If you want to find out more about Soren's project, head over to his blog or Picasa page.
The Cerberus Space Station

Built by Chris, also known as Big_0 from the forum, and his friends Nikhil and John, the Cerberus Station is a thing of beauty indeed! Shown off at the US show, Adepticon 2016, the station attracted lots of attention to the table and was admired by all. Great work guys! For more pictures, head over to the forum thread.
Firestorm Armada at Adepticon 2016

Adepticon 2016 also played host to the 2nd Schaumburg Offensive. The Waygate, in conjunction with Spartan Games, Firebase Delta Podcast, Evolution Games, Broken Egg Games and The Miniature Tim Blog, was very proud to host the premier North American Firestorm Armada Grand Tournament.
Firestorm Armada featured in new online magazine

New online magazine, Board Game Monthly, is now on its third issue, and we were please to support them by providing content for a in-depth look at Firestorm Armada. Take a look at the magazine here, and check out the Firestorm article on page 37.
