I haven't had any experience with Spartan games as of yet, so i don't know how this will run. I do know that Dystopian Wars was a pretty good success, so hopefully this kicks off nicely

Big Halo fan myself. I'll probably be getting these.

When they tesed they were going to do a Halo project I was hoping for a multi part ground based game. Spartan games doesn't really do multipart though...
Looking forward to whatever they turn the ground based game into.

good god, I thought we settled the Space Marine VS spartan debate years ago, no need to make models to try and prove the point.

I feel like that UNSC fleet is still outmatched. I wonder how they'll balance everything out

TechPr1est 02-16-15 10:39 PM

yeah you are right jester. even with the MAC

Looks sweet. Will probably pick up a few sets once they are released. :)

I sure do, mate. It's a shame it died out. I might start posting the background story for my character again. I still have that stored in a cloud somewhere.

Spartans, my friend.
Or, just like in most games, the cost of a Covenant ship is far greater in points too a UNSC ship. Maybe UNSC ships come with flyers whereas the Covies need it as an upgrade, or they have greater range.

Fluff wise there are cases where a single Covenant Battleship can destroy a small UNSC fleet, but there's also a case where a single UNSC destroyer class ship takes down a Covie destroyer and two frigates and then manages to scare away a carrier, simply by using tactics.

They'll manage to balance it out, of that I'm sure.
