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!





Planetfall Unboxings


Alistair Currie of the Brisbane City Crusaders Facebook page has been kind enough to provide pictures of some of the Planetfall Helixes just as he cracked them open.

As a Terran player I can’t support his radical and obviously misguided association with this force but I am nothing but fair (if I do say so myself) ūüôā

First up, the Rense System Navy Allied Assault Helix

Next the Dindrenzi Federation Aerial Interceptor Helix¬†(Boo..Hiss…)

and finally the Dindrenzi Federation Recon Assault Helix


Why someone would willingly assist these corrupt forces is beyond me but I’m not a judging person.

Hopefully Alistair will bring some of these to the table this weekend.

If you have some unboxing pictures you’d like to post, please drop us an email or leave a post on the Element 270 Facebook page.


December Releases available for Pre-Order from Spartan Games

The latest Newsletter from Spartan Games has hit my Inbox. There are releases for almost everyone – Planetfall, Dystopian Wars, Dystopian Legions and Firestorm Armada. So I guess if your an Uncharted Seas player – then your out of luck.


To start with we have Firestorm Planetfall – Core Helix releases for the Dindrenzi, Sorylians, Relthoza and my personal favourites TERRANS! There is also two new Allied Helixes – the Ba’Kash and Hawker Industries. ¬†Finally there is a Commanders Pack – allowing you to get the Rulebook and other goodies.









Firestorm Armada also gets new Battlestations for each of the core factions.






On the back of the Dystopian Legions V2 release comes the Infantry sections to bulk out the models from Iron Scorpion.  The Covenant get their Commandos and Automata while France has their Legionaries and Armoured Marines.

An Officer Pack is also available with the Core Rulebook, templates and counters.



Last but not least the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth now get a Naval force (skimming one anyway) and an Armoured Force.

DWAL28HIDDEN-2 DWAL29HIDDEN-2What a massive month December is going to be! ¬†Hopefully you’ve all been good and Santa will drop some of these under the tree.

Of course if you haven’t been good you can always Pre-Order them ( now for 10th of December shipping. ¬†Now where did I put that spare Kidney I was keeping for old age??????



Planetfall makes…erm…planet fall


I woke up this morning to find these amazing pictures supplied by Wonderdog on the Spartan Games Community. ¬†Wonderdog visited Claymore 2014 and there was Spartan Games, Neil and …… Planetfall!

It appears the Spartan guys were demoing the game at this convention and, thanks to Wonderdog, we now have some very cool pictures.

A Planetfall game in progress РTerrans vs Dindrenzi


Another view showing terrain, command vehicles and a huge mech!


Terrain mech, drop ship and tanks – Halo anyone?


Terrain Infantry – apparently the front left model comes separate while the terrain the and other three models are one mold.


Here is a shot of some Dindrenzi models and terrain.


Not to be outdone Рthe Dindrenzi also get a Mech.


Final picture is Planetfall again, but a 28mm version – Dystopian Legions in Sssssppppaaaacccceeee!

I am really looking forward to this game, especially the ability to link Firestorm Armada to Planetfall and now to Planetfall Spec Ops. ¬†I’m sure a similar system won’t be far off for the Dystopian World either.

Till next time – watch of our those Exploding (RED) 6’s and giant Mechs!
