One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Spartan Games Releases for July 2014

Spartan Games Logo

Spartan Games has just announced their release schedule for July, and it’s packed full of stuff for Dystopian Wars. Following the Dystopian Wars Naval and Armoured Battle Groups, next month will see all new Aerial Battle Groups optimized for play using the new 2.0 rules. These Aerial Groups will make the most out of the new rules, putting player’s skill to the test on the battlefield.

While these new groups will make use of the 2.0 rules, Spartan wants to reiterate that all existing Armoured, Naval, and Aerial Battle Groups are fully compatible with the 2.0 ruleset. All models in Dystopian Wars have been carried over to the new ruleset to ensure fair play across the board. Besides, Spartan wants players to purchase the new Battle Groups because they want to, not because they have to.

Each new Aerial Battle Group will include:

  • 1 Sky Fortress
  • 3 Scout Ships
  • 5 Small Ships
  • 9 Flight Stands
  • 3 Resin SAS Movement Trays
  • 16 Resin SAW Tokens
  • 9 7mm Micro Dice

Also, each Aerial Battle Group will come in at $75 retail. The Battle Groups all look amazing and add all sorts of strategy to your games of Dystopian Wars. I’m pretty partial to the Federated States of America, but then again I’m a sucker for aesthetics. Get ready for these groups to start shipping on July 16th, and check each of them out below!
