Amazingly I managed to organize my schedule to get a Firestorm Armada game in! It’s been far too long, and work has kept me far too busy.
Unfortunately I was so excited to actually play that I only used my cellphone camera and didn’t take as many pictures as I like to do. The other downside is that this was a fluke for schedules lining up as a regular scheduled event was cancelled. This means that I’m not sure when the next game will get in.
Anyway – if you’d like to check it out, pictures can be found here as usual : https://www.flickr.com/photos/126632382@N05/sets/72157651739547899/
Hello all – just a quick update today.
I’ve added the Heroes of Tarxon VI – Dindrenzi to the Battlescribe data files. You can find them here : http://battlescribedata.appspot.com/#/repo/firestorm-planetfall
Let me know if there are any issues! I’ll be working on the Terran Heroes next…
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. 🙂

So there is an issue with some Spartan Games models that use pegs ‘listing’. This typically happens with the acrylic pegs for models in Firestorm Armada and some of the models in Dystopian Wars or Planetfall.
Most people tend to use Hawk Widgets to fix these issues. While they definitely do fix the issue very well, I don’t like the look of them. To me it looks like a deflated balloon hanging out of the bottom of the model.
So what are the alternatives?
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/
So after 2 weeks of near nothing – BOOM! Two posts in a day.
Not that impressive really, I intended to write the D&D review last week, but grown up stuff sucked the life out of me.
Anyway – on to the latest Firestorm Armada game! 1600 point game with Ryushi and Sorylian vs. Dindrenzi and Kedorian. Was an interesting battle. Got a new camera, so the images should be sharper too!

So I’ve been working on a video that I intended to be a quick how to play for Firestorm. That ‘brief’ video ballooned into an hour-long demo. So slightly overshot the 10-20 minute mark I had in my head, but what the hell.
I wanted to put together a short little show of how the game played with a bit of explanation as if I were showing a friend how to play. The videography is no where as sharp as I wanted, and the sound is not as clear – but I have a cheap little waterproof Kodak PlaySport video camera, so I didn’t know what else to expect really.
