Spartan Games will be producing a couple miniatures games based on the popular Halo series of video games. The first one they’re making is Halo: Fleet Battles. Attendants of Salute that stop by the Spartan booth will be able to get a look at some of the first pieces for the game. Spartan has also announced the first product that will be available for the game, the starter set. They give us a look at the starter box contents as well. Check below the cut for details, and be on the lookout for pre-orders, which will be happening soon.
From the announcement:
Spartan Games announced in February that we had entered into a License Agreement with Microsoft Corporation to design and produce tabletop miniatures games for Halo®. The first products are set for launch in summer 2015 and this coming weekend we will premiere Halo® at Salute, the UK’s largest wargames show.
We’re hugely excited to be giving visitors to Salute the first look at what we’ve been working on. The centrepiece will be the first Halo® product – Halo®: Fleet Battles, The Fall Of Reach, a two-player box set featuring 49 high quality plastic models, full colour rulebook, campaign guide, scenery, custom dice and more.
