From the website:

Planetfall is a tabletop game of explosive, fast paced armoured combat, set in the exciting and ever expanding Firestorm Galaxy.

In this deadly, hard sci-fi setting, hordes of futuristic tanks, agile aircraft and hulking mech-walkers tear one another asunder with high powered weaponry. Lasers burn across the tabletop, rail-gun slugs smash through armoured hulls and advanced cyber-warfare weapons hack through vital systems – the war zones of the distant future are no place for the faint hearted.

Firestorm Planetfall puts you in the role of a Grand Commander, orchestrating the manoeuvres of your chosen army. Each of your Battle Groups will contain several Squadrons of stunningly detailed 10mm scale miniatures, ranging from towering Behemoths to platoons of Infantry, all prepared to fight to the last under your command.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I really like the Directorate’s aesthetics, but the Relthoza and Didrenzi could make for some interesting allied units.

    Sorry, the only Planetfall worthy of the name shall be Infocom’s.

      The floor is a bit shinier now.

    Well, I guess that’s the end of the Dystopian games.

      Lol!

      Looking forward to the figs – will probably wait a couple of additions to even bother looking at the rules. Let me guess – roll a 6 and things go boom right?

        you clearly have not seen their three latest rulesets, Dystopian Legions, Firestorm Invasion, or Armoured Clash. Gone are the days of frigates being able to destroy dreadnaughts. I suspect in the newest editions of Firestorm Armada and Uncharted Seas will see the new colored dice system.

          Cause that happened all the time…heck, it’s statistically more likely for grechins in 40k to kill a squad of terminators I think than for frigates to destroy a ship which specifically had a rule against one-off destruction in it!

          As for roll six and things go boom, it describes just about every wargame where the higher you roll the better…(fun fact- a roll of 19 is not one bit stronger than a roll of 10 vs a CR 10 unit, something a lot of people ignore in their criticism)
