In space, no one can hear you scream....

Just got my first Firestorm Armada ship from Spartan Games in the mail a few days ago. And frankly, I'm pleasantly surprised. The size of the model is bigger than I thought and molding is really good quality (resin, btw). The ship pictured is a Manta Class Battle Carrier. I bought this as a test model to see what I thought and after this I am seriously considering getting in to this game full time. I need a side game for the times that you're just not in the mood for a full blown 40k or Fantasy game.

This is a space combat game similar to Uncharted Seas, also a Spartan Product. If you want to know more, The D6 Generation did a really good review in Episode 46.

Here's a quick look at 2 projects I have been working on recently. The first is a stone formation that was made out of foam insulation. I've really been trying lately to make more large scale scenery that can really block LOS and make games more interesting. The second is the GW Temple of Skulls, it's about 90% finished. I just have a little bit more high lighting to do. I gotta say this is probably one of the best pieces that GW makes. It's technically in the Fantasy line of scenery but honestly it's better suited for 40k....lots of nooks and crannies for individual models to hide in. Awesome piece and reasonably priced at $29.75. Hopefully I'll be able to post some battle report pics with these in them soon...
