‘Tis the season to be too busy to blog…
Oh well, finally got my first Planetfall game battle report up and running! Not the first game, it’s actually my second – but it was already smoother than the first. Won’t be surprised if we missed a bunch. No matter – it was fast and fun. Took about 3 hours to finish, and that included multiple breaks to cook and eat and being distracted with home chores.
When we get this down and aren’t distracted, this game will fly!
So I recently picked up the new Firestorm Planetfall 2 player box set : Battle For Proteus Prime. I decided to do an unboxing on everything and make a post about it.
First of all I will say that I was extremely impressed with the sheer weight of the box when I got it. In typical Spartan Games fashion I was amazed how they packed so much into a single box.
Garthim on the Firestorm Armada forums was asking about the size comparisons of the Battlestations. I gave an explanation that I wasn’t completely satisfied with, but was accepted at the time.
I figured “what the heck”, as I have all of the Battlestations and have either 1st edition or later Battleships and Cruisers for all races, I would take a few quick pics and post them. That way anyone else with a similar quandary can come check them out for themselves. 🙂

Been a little bit once again. Stupid life getting in the way of gaming…
Anyways, I managed to get in a great Firestorm Armada game against my better half. Was a fun game overall. When I made the fleet lists I really wanted to try out my RSN and Dindrenzi and while playing around with the list, I made it illegal. Ooops!
While illegal, it wasn’t overpowered. There wasn’t anything crazy bad, I just used RSN as the main force with Dindrenzi allied in. Can’t do that. Has to be Dindrenzi allied with RSN or RSN allied with any other Zenian league races that aren’t the big 3 (Dindrenzi, Relthozan, or Directirate).
Oh well, no harm, no foul. Game was damn close anyway. If you are interested in checking it out, it’s up on my flickr site here : https://www.flickr.com/photos/126632382@N05/sets/72157648740297618/
Been one heck of a week. Hoping to get a few more posts up about a couple of ideas, but haven’t had much time to write 😦
On the plus side, I did get a 900 point Firestorm game in. It was Ba’kash and Kedorian Alliance vs. Aquan on a Border Clash mission. Was a really fun game. Once again, I took a bunch of shots – so feel free to check it out! Continue reading
