Firestorm: Taskforce

I got a copy of the Terran vs Dindrenzi starter set of Taskforce recently, and have managed to clean and put together the ships (which are rather nice).

Here are some snaps:

The ships come with pre-cast holes for 2mm magnets, but I drilled them out a little and used 3mm magnets.

The models are very nice, and I’m looking forward to getting them to the table!





Enter the Danger Zone!


The Terran Alliance – the bastion of decent and law abiding citizens in the Firestorm Universe – now have their second Aerial helix in the form of interceptors.

Today’s unboxing video opens the Aerial Interceptor Helix for the Terran Alliance.

Players of Firestorm Armada will notice they are almost direct copies of the SRS tokens found in that game (in fact, I’ve included pictures of those tokens with the models in the video).

Hope you enjoy the video.

Unboxing the Hawker Industries Aerial Helix


They may not be Terrans (cause Terrans are cool) but the Hawker Industries Aerial Helix comes a very close second.

Check out this unboxing of one of the latest helixes for the Firestorm Planetfall game.

I also challenge anyone not to look at the fighter jets and think about that old Clint Eastwood movie – Firefox!

Unboxing the Terran Core Helix for Planetfall


Terran’s are my favourite faction in Firestorm Armada and Firestorm Planetfall – so it will be no surprise to everyone that I received the Terran Core Helix recently and did an unboxing video.

The box it self only contains the minimum for the Terran Core Helix, which means you will have to buy 2 boxes to field a decent number of points.

The models are fantastic, both in quality and value for money.  I can’t wait to get them painted and played.

Painting Contest – WE HAVE A WINNER!

And we really do! I promise! 😀

It’s been a while in the making, so time to announce the winner of the painting competition… You’ll have to supply your own drum rolls though, as they were cut due to budget considerations. I’m blaming Giles… 😛

And the winner is:

Charles Yang’s Covenant of Antarctica with 35 votes!


And more of our winners fleet: Linky-link

Congratulation Charles on that very pretty and very steampunk looking fleet!

But lets not forget, without our other competitors (and their wonderful work) we would not have a competition. And they also actually managed to get their fleets painted in time, unlike myself… For that, I applaud them!

Because they all looked so good, I have once again linked them below for people to appreciate.

James’ Covenant

Luke’s EotBS

Robert’s EotBS

Again, thank you everyone that entered, and apologies for the massive delays… It has been an interesting few months of my Real Life.

And Charles, we shall be stalking you via email regarding your loot… You’ve been warned… 🙂


Code name: Iron Scorpion – building…

Well I spent some of the afternoon putting the MDF building from Iron Scorpion together. It was pretty straightforward following the numbers, although there were a few pieces it took me a while to work out!

It’s looking good! All said and done there is a significant amount of terrain in there! Looking forward to giving it the one over! Next up, the miniatures themselves… Should be interesting!





Stats and ORBATs for Dystopian Legions


Codename Iron Scorpion has made landfall at Pritchard Stronghold, and I’m very excited!  While I haven’t had a chance yet to break out all the pieces and start putting things together, I have managed to have a glance through – very nice!

So, speaking of Legions, there are updated Army Lists for the Kingdom of Britannia, Prussian Empire, Federated States of America and the Empire of the Blazing Sun, as well as all the stat blocks from the Iron Scorpion booklet – for the French and Covenant models in the Iron Scorpion box.  All these have been recently updated, and the stats for the Black Wolf Raiding Company are also online.

Head over to and head to their downloads page, under the Dystopian Legions banner you will find all the ORBATs for download.

I will also endeavour to post up some photos and articles as I go through the Legions boxed set… Mwahahahahaha!


Painting Competition – Voting Begins!

Finally, its here! The voting portion of the E270 Painting Competition!

I must apologise for its tardiness, but as is far too often the case, Real Lifeâ„¢ decided it would be the perfect time to interfere just as the comp was finishing up…

But, enough with the excuses, onto the entries!

Now, I have attached the main fleet photo for each entry, and then linked below it to a collection of all supplied photos from each entrant for those who would like to peruse them.

So in no particular order other than my whimsy, let E270 present to you:
