Spartan Games HUGE Halo Fleet Battles Expansion set!

This is a reblog from Spartan Games website, with some commentary by me at the end of the article): 

Spartan Games Creative Director Neil Fawcett and 343 Industries’ Kenneth Peters provide some more details on the exciting release of the UNSC Punic-class Supercarrier and Covenant Assault Carrier (CAS).

First up is Kenneth Peters from 343 Industries, one of the people tasked with helping Spartan Games keep its Halo tabletop games accurate to canon. Kenneth sets the scene for where these exciting new models fit into the Halo Universe.

Assault carriers are monumental symbols of Covenant power, and among the deadliest implements wielded by the Prophets in their war against humanity. Each assault carrier is a potent instrument of conversion and compliance, capable of deploying thousands of troops and numerous fighter craft, backed by an array of devastating energy projectors that can burn entire continents to ash. A single CAS is sufficient to quell all but the most pernicious heresy, rebellion, or parasite outbreak. Colossally expensive to construct and few in number, the rare loss of an assault carrier is mourned by the entire Covenant.

Halo Monopoly

Halo Monopoly

EB Games (of Australia) has a listing for a Halo edition of Monopoly. It’s up for pre-order now and will sell for $68 Aussie dollars. This will release in Nov this year. It’s also listed as being exclusive to EB Games. (The image above is likely not the final box version.)

We in the states know that EB Games and Gamestop are one in the same now. I did a little looking around and couldn’t find a listing for this anywhere else but in Australia.

I do hope this comes to the rest of the world. I’d like to play this. I wonder what would be used for houses though, or if they will still be the same as the standard game??

Would you buy this if it came to a store near you?

Let me know, reply below.

SpruKits Halo Level 2 Spartan Locke Toy Review! EXCLUSIVELY only on HFFL!

Before I start this review, I need to thank Bandai for being generous in sending me this set. This is a pre-production set, meaning, it’s one of the ones made before mass production begins. You can tell by the sticker in the upper right corner of the front of the box. I’m told that means ‘sample’ in Japanese.

Further thanks are due as I was told I am the first ‘press’ person to receive this set and noone will get it for roughly a month’s time. So this is the exclusive review that you can not find on any other site. (Please see statement at end of article).

Let’s get started with the review! Continue reading
