We've been missing a good capital ship fleet combat game and now Firestorm Armada is here to fill that gap. We will be having the first demo of this game on Saturday, October 23rd in Gamespace starting at 11:00 am.
I've just finished painting up a couple of demo fleets for use at Quarterstaff: the Aquans and the Relthozans. The resin and metal miniatures are pretty good quality and paint up very quickly. The nice thing about the game is that the starter fleet gets you right into the thick of things at a price of only $60. Unlike other miniature wargames you don't have to buy much more than that. Eventually you might want some escorts, carriers and other specialty ships, but they are not required to start playing.
We are also carrying acrylic templates, tokens, and bases from Litko that add to the gameplay of Firestorm Armada. The deluxe bases are especially nice because they are notched to accept the hull, crew, and assault counters that go with each ship. When the ship is moved the counters do not have to be moved separately, instead they move right along with the ship because they fit right into the base. Very slick! You can see these in action on October 23rd as our demo fleets have been assembled with the deluxe bases.
Hope to see you there!
