Halo: Fleet Battles
Or in the case of Spartan Games, "2016 for busts!"
They've started taking pre-orders for the new models they'll have available on January 27th of next year, and included in the group are a new set of busts for the Halo Fleet Battles game. There's more than that, of course. To see exactly what, read on.
... I guess you only get that joke when you see what they're actually taking orders for. I guess I should probably show you that.
So without further ado...
This week we have stories on: Rory’s Story Cubes: Batman, King's Pouch, Space Movers 2201, Warehouse 51, Neon City Rumble, Viceroy, Machina Arcana, 7 Wonders: Duel, Age of Tyrants Junkers and Viridians, The Minecraft Card Game, Battle Foam P.A.C.K 720 Molle Army Bag, Thunder Alley, Halo: Fleet Battles, and Starfighter.
Uh... there's also some Halo stuff there...
Well, Spartan is here to expand your fleets with bunches of new options. More ships, more commanders, more dice.
In this batch we have: Multiple videos from Through Gamer Goggles as they tooled around at Gen Con, Mantic posts an unboxing of Abyssal Dwarves, Geeks of the North Episode 18 – Happy Birthday, and All Us Geeks Episode 59 Having Great Snowball Battles During Table Golf.
I, of course, once more made my rounds of the place and got some galleries of photos over on the TGN Facebook page.
In 2001, Microsoft changed the landscape of console based shooters with the release of Halo: Combat Evolved for the original Xbox, introducing the world to Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 (or the Master Chief for short) and a rich, sci-fi universe. Over the years the franchise spawned many more releases ranging from sequels to books and comics to updated re-releases on new consoles. And on October 27, 2015, Microsoft and 343 Industries (the developers and caretakers of Halo) will release Halo 5: Guardians on the Xbox One. But soon, another all-new gameplay experience will be available thanks to Spartan Games — an appropriately named UK based tabletop game studio. In February 2015, Spartan announced its forthcoming tabletop miniature game, Halo: Fleet Battles.
