Spartan Games have added two new vessels to their Firestorm Armada space combat game.

FAAT04 Xelocian Karn Class Frigate (4) £14.00
A squadron of up to 5 Karn Frigates can snap at the heels of enemy vessels, their fore weapons linking to hand out 10AD of pain. Stragglers beware – the wrath of Karn will be upon you.

FAAT05 Xelocian Hantari Class Cruiser (2) £16.50
All Xelocian Imperium ships are designed around a forward-firing energy bore weapon, normally running the entire length of the ship, that disrupts the molecular structure of its targets when it strikes them, even at extreme ranges. The Hantari Cruiser complements this fore weapon with an effective bank of fore torpedoes, and a fairly powerful starboard/port array of weapons make this a great all round cruiser.

    I still wonder why they are not able to bring new ships for the existing races instead of releasing new ships for races, which rarely have mor than 3 different ship types.

    • PanzerKraken

      The two alliance fleets essentially are 2 new races and are going to have more ships than the 6 major races. The whole point of the alliance fleets is a hodge podge of different lesser races, not meant to be looked like smaller fleet releases, but all part of a larger faction.

    Not so keen on the Cruiser. It looks more like a new sonic screwdriver than a spaceship to me!

    I like the idea, but I think it looks a bit brittle – the connecting rods could have been bulked up a bit.
