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) 🙂

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.


Announced in October – Halo and Planetfall Goodies…


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


These ships look exactly what it says on the tin – massive. The rules for how such massive ships function are already built into the rules book – and 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! 😉

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 the Aquan Leviathan Helix


Aquan’s are a race known for being sleek and fast and their Leviathan is no different. In my latest unboxing I carefully open and reveal the contents of this latest boxed set from Spartan Games.

Why carefully? Suffice to say it doesn’t belong to me…the answers are in the video.

Episode 25 – Time for Planetfall!



In this episode Giles, Peter and Reese discuss Firestorm Planetfall!

We talk about what the game is all about, the models, how it plays, the boxed set Battle for Proteus Prime, our opinions and finally get to answering some listener questions.

The rule book for Planetfall, as well as all the army lists, are available as free downloads from the Spartan Games website: www.spartangames.co.uk and in our estimation, are well worth a look!

Enter the Terran Leviathan!


The Odin Class Leviathan advances through the battlefield shrugging off all bar the most concerted attacks using a combination of heavy armour and overlapping shield technology. Armed with a powerful G-72 Legacy Laser, this Terran war machine is one of the most powerful vehicle killers in the Firestorm Galaxy – woe betide the enemy that presents its flank to this behemoth!

You can watch the unboxing video of this model here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9V5QUnXJTBw

This model stands 12 centimetres tall, is comprised of 10 parts and is all resin.  It is fantastically detailed and a breeze to paint.  I highly recommend all Terran players get one of these – even if you aren’t fighting the Drin-losers!
