This month new releases have been announced for Halo – the long awaited giant ships!

These ships look exactly what it says on the tin Рmassive. The rules for how such massive ships function are already built into the rules book Рand they should be a lot of fun!

In Planetfall news we have a Ground Command Helix for each of the 6 core nations, and these comes with some beastly models! Have a close look for infantry manning guns left and right – I’m not sure life expectancy would be high among those crew!

Latest Releases

Spartan Games have sent out their latest newsletter, with a collection of releases for Halo, Planetfall and Dystopian Wars.

The releases for Halo we previously mentioned here, and look like a nice way to pad out your fleet – of course, the Commander and Dice packs are also really handy!

The Planetfall Aerial Helicies Reese managed to find some photos of are being released, and look really nice! I am loving the look of the Planetfall models – I absolutely cannot wait to get hold of my Aquan fliers and strafe some Relthoza scum! ūüėČ

Great also to see a release for Dystopian Wars, with the Kingdom of Denmark getting two boxes – and they look like really solid additions to the game, and will certainly make the Danish even more formiddable on the water! I love the Danish carrier with the extendable arms loaded with torpedo boats!

Unboxing Halo Fleet Battles

In the beginning, Bill created Microsoft – then Microsoft created X-Box – then X-Box created Halo – and now Halo has become Halo Fleet Battles.

Welcome to my latest unboxing video as I break open the massive release of Halo Fleet Battles from Spartan Games. For this video I’ve brought along a special guest, my youngest son and the families biggest Halo fan.

Meeples and Miniatures show off Halo

ep-151

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!)
