Release Round Up – Halo Wars 2, Halo Ground Command, Shadowrun Boston Chronicles and miniatures!


Hi all,

Branching away from 40k for a change I thought it would be important to feature other Games that are popular at the moment. I for one grew up with Halo and am eagerly awaiting the upcoming releases for Halo Wars 2 and the Miniatures from Spartan Games.

So without further ado here is this posts line up.

Halo Wars 2


Halo Wars was a great offshoot game to the Halo Universe and offered a army control perspective similar to Age of Empires and Dawn of War. The cinematic videos with this game and the upcoming sequel always get me pumped for the game and inspire further production on our own game. A full review of halo wars 2 beta will be up soon so stay watching for that.

Halo : Ground Command


Created by Spartan Games Halo: Ground Command allows players to take their Halo Love to the Tabletop War-game arena. We hope to play test this game at Warpack studios in the future. Miniatures come with a painting guide that has reference to using Games Workshop citadel paints so it will be familiar to Games Workshop painters.

The Battle for Reach 2-player set is an easy way for gamers to start playing large scale ground warfare, and comes with the following components:

  • Full colour Halo: Ground Command Rulebook
  • Statistic Sheets (UNSC and Covenant)
  • Reference Sheet
  • 20x Custom Dice and 6x Halo Command Dice
  • Game Tokens (Damage, Activation and Cooldown)
  • Halo Scenery
  • UNSC 1,000 Point Battle Force – including 1x Officer, 1x Medic, 1x Radio Operator, 2x Snipers, 2x Spotters, 2x 2-man HMG Teams, 2x 2-man Missile Teams, 27x Troopers, 2x Warthogs (Gatling, Gauss and Rocket Weapons for each) and a 1x Spartan.
  • Covenant 1,000 Point Battle Force – including 1x Elite Ultra, 2x Elite Minor, 3x Elite Majors, 6x Grunts with Fuel Rods, 24x Grunt Minors, 3x Ghosts with Grunt Operator and 2x Hunters.


This game looks positive and we cant wait to get our hands on it and find time for a battle report within our current busy schedule.
