Halo: Ground Command

The folks at Spartan Games have a whole bunch of new releases available to pre-order for a trio of their games. Both Halo Wars: Fleet Battles and Ground Command are getting some new ships (a couple of them huge, relatively), and there's a new edition of Dystopian Wars you can pick up the rulebook for, plus the Republic of Egypt makes an appearance.
Spartan Games is giving you a chance to get something for nothing. This weekend spend £50 in their webshop and get a free rulebook of your choice. Want to start one of their games but were waiting for some sort of special? Want to get a friend into a game? Just need to replace a beaten-up book? This weekend's your chance to do it.
Spartan Games has their first releases for the new year up on their website. They've got new releases for three of their games: Dystopian Wars, Firestorm Armada, and Halo: Ground Command. So you've got some steampunk, some sci-fi space battles, and some sci-fi ground battles. Pretty nice spread there.
We're a couple weeks away from it being December. Holiday shopping will start any time now (or possibly has already started for some people). Well, if you're fans of Dystopian Wars or Halo: Ground Command, you can go ahead and start your shopping as well, as the December releases are available to order over in the Spartan Games webshop.
Tanks have been a part of warfare for over 100 years now. And even before that, there were things like war elephants that were basically the tanks of their time. Well, in the far future of the Halo universe, tanks still play a major role in combat. Next month, two tanks will be making their way to the tabletops for Halo: Ground Command.
Hard to believe we're already into September. There's been a lot of cool things that've come out this year. One of which is Halo: Ground Command. Spartan is working on sending those out to everyone that ordered (there's been a bit of a back-log, but they're working through it as fast as they can). As they finish those up, it's time to look ahead to what will be coming out next. And it's those that Spartan has started taking orders for over in their webshop.
I swear this show is just screaming by this year. It's already the end of Day 3. Today will be the last day for Gen Con 2016. As usual for Gen Con Saturday, it was a whirlwind of activity. There was roaming the hall, taking photos most of the morning and early afternoon. Then there was the media event in the CMON booth. Expect a few more posts about games from that in the morning. My brain's just too fried to do much more than get you a recap of the photos I posted earlier today.
We've got just under a week left in July. Spartan Games had said that they were going to be shipping out Halo: Ground Command in July. That means that the game should be shipping out this week.
Well, that, and Spartan sent out a press release saying it was going to be shipping this week. So there's that.
You've been waiting patiently (or possibly less-than-patiently, but I can't really blame you) and the time is almost here. Spartan Games will be releasing their second game to take place in the Halo universe with Halo: Ground Battles. We're just over a month away from you getting them and the final Starter Box contents have been announced.
Painting a miniature is its own reward. You've got a little work of art that you can also use to attack your opponent's forces and achieve total victory on the gaming table!! But hey, if you're really good at slinging that colored goop around, you could also get extra prizes if yours is deemed the best. Spartan Games feels so, anyway, and so they're running a painting contest.
Something big is coming from Spartan Games for their Halo: Ground Command game. Well, two big somethings, anyway. They're the UNSC Pelican Dropship and the Covenant Phantom Dropship. They're... well... big.
Back at Gen Con last year, in the Spartan Games' booth, there were some miniatures on display for the next Halo game to be coming from the company. We had Halo: Fleet Command, but what about all the fun of running around on the ground, jumping into Warthogs and taking on the Covenant man-to-alien? Well, that time has come, as Spartan Games has started taking orders for Halo: Ground Command.
