|Battlefleet Gothic -|
the 'good old days'
Recently one of the many Table Top miniatures games that have pulled me in was Spartan Games. Makers of the steampunk styled all terrain war game Dystopian Wars they also have been making a spiritual successor to Battlefleet Gothic: Firestorm Armada. I look at some of these minis and long for my past. It takes a moment to remind myself that I don't need to just cruise around in my Chaos Warships anymore. The alternative is here and it's doing well for the last four years.
Spartan Games just released something. More like two somethings with regard to the Firestorm Armada universe. A second edition of the rules and land battles...

Right off the bat the excuses for me to pick up and play this game now that I've got solid (albeit not the best) employment that does in fact pay. I even have time to paint since my new shift started. I've completed quite a few minis over the last two weeks and I'm picking up speed. My Paingiver Beast Handlers, Void Spirit, eHex and pHex are all done next to a few Nomad minis that includes my Sin Eater with Mk12.
Do I need another game? Nope. Do I have plenty to play? Infinity, Warmachine/Hordes, Dreadball and Heavy Gear... yes. Do I have time to play all these games? I wish. Do I still want Firestorm Armada anyways?
Damn me. Yes, yes I do. I've yammer about this game before.
Follow me after the break.
