Meeples and Miniatures show off Halo


Neil Shuck, Mike Hobbs and Mike Whitaker, of Meeples and Miniatures fame, have recorded a fantastic interview on all things Halo Fleet Battles with Spartan Neil and Derek. This episode (151), has a great overview of the game as well as an insight into the design process and future. Great job guys!

They have also posted a bunch of wonderful pictures on their website (which Mike H has had burning a hole in his hard drive since their last visit to Spartan HQ, but wasn’t allowed to release until now)!  Well worth checking out!

Mike has kindly allowed us to repost those great photos here (but still go check out the M&M Blog – as they have painting advice as well as a bunch more photos!)

Nucreum DWABO Army Builder for 2.0!



The very best online army builder out there (and it’s free) for Dystopian Wars has been updated for 2.0!

Well worth checking out – DWABO Army Builder

This is a really neat online tool for building your army – I use it all the time and love it – well worth checking out!

The older version dealing with 1.1 can also still be found here.

Both have links on our links page.  The thread in the Spartan Games forums for discussing it can be found here.

Great job Nucreum – an amazing effort and very much appreciated!

And finally, some shots of each of the fleets in all their glory! Well, primed in a grey basecoat, but still… 😛

While there are a few old models scattered in there, there is many more shiny new ones too.
