Firestorm Taskforce…

Spartan has announced the arrival of a fast playing rules set that compliments Firestorm Armada. This new rules set is being launched with three starter sets, each containing two fleets, but each is also available individually as a Reinforcement Set (see below).

Spartan released a primer on what we can expect from Taskforce, and I for one am excited by the idea of a quick playing ‘skirmish’ style space battles game that uses the same models as Firestorm Armada, as when I have the time I’ll also be able to jump in and enjoy the full flavour and strategies afforded by the excellent Firestorm Armada.

The ships are absolutely gorgeous, and very modular in design, even going so far as to include holes specially made for 2mm magnets for those who want to magnetise their fleet for the fullest level of customisation.

Taskforce looks a phenomenal new addition to the Firestorm stable of games, with the ability (hopefully) to link to Planetfall, to be expanded to the fuller experience of Firestorm Armada, and generally as a quick throw down for those short on time, I for one, cannot wait!

Preorders made prior to January 25th will also get the objective set pictured above.

You can see from the above photo just how customisable the new cruisers are, with a chassis, body and various drop ons – all with holes for 2mm magnets. Just wonderful design both aesthetically and functionally.

Each nation is also available as a reinforcement set like this Dindrenzi one – great for players of Firestorm who have established fleets and aren’t interested in playing the new Taskforce game.
