The Icarus Project: Gabriel Cross Unboxing

Hi all,

Welcome back to ITSZ. Today I wanted to show you the level of quality and detail that is going into the miniatures for The Icarus Project Kickstarter (so don’t worry, it’s picture heavy!). As mentioned yesterday when the KS reached 200 backers Anthony and the Icarus team decided to put a sale on for Gabriel Cross, the mini currently available on the store pending the result of the Kickstarter, so I picked one up to give you guys a look at what sort of quality you can expect from these guys in the future. Even if they fail to make their funding level in this round they’ve said that they’re going to go back, have a rethink and decide on a course of action that gets this game into our grubby little gamer mitts so these figures are coming, it’s just a case of when.

The Icarus Project

Hi All,

Something a bit different for you today on ITSZ, a new game! Now, I’ve been playing wargames for around about 15 years now in various forms with the primary focus during that time being Warhammer 40,000 – I’m going to go ahead and assume that anyone interested in gaming enough to find my small dark corner of the internet knows this game but a brief overview regardless; Continue reading The Icarus Project

Progress on the Terrans

Hi all,

Welcome back to ITSZ, today I’ve just got a short update for you as I’ve actually spent some time painting and thought I’d share the results so far! Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am not the most diligent hobbyist when it comes to painting my armies and fleets so the fact that I’ve nearly completed 800 points of Terrans in about 2 weeks is nothing short of a miracle to be perfectly honest. I do have to apologise for the poor lighting compounded by the fact that I haven’t done highlights on the non-grey sections yet so they appear a lot darker than they actually are/will be. But enough from me, onto the pictures:

Spartan Mega Sale!

Hi all,

Just a heads up that SG are offering a fantastic deal this weekend with half price mega sets! These sets are the ones that give you one of everything in a particular fleet at a standard discount of 20% off but this weekend only that is increase to a mighty 50% discount. You could pick up an entire fleet with every option for about £130! And if you buy one you also get the chance to buy all 3 hardback rulebooks at half price too. 

  
So, if you are looking at getting into the game but been sat on the fence, or if you’re a current collector who is in need of a new fleet to play check it out here. It also applies to the Dystopian Wars equivalents in case you fancied expanding into another Spartan product.

Alas pay day isn’t for another week for me as I’ve been eyeing up expanding my Terrans and possibly starting Directorate (I have a problem, I know) or I would definitely be picking one of them up.

For those less financially constrained get in there and pick up some new toys, you’ve earned it!*

Until next time…

800 Point Terran vs Dindrenzi Battle Report

Hi all,

Welcome back to ITSZ, I am so sorry for the delay – Real Life decided to throw a couple curve balls at me which reduced gaming time but I think I’m now through the majority of it! Today, I’ve got another battle report for you; my first game with the Terrans and my first game against August Doumerc. We were about to head off to LARP (yes, I am that nerdy and I love it) and had an evening free so headed down to Dark Sphere for a game. Unfortunately Alex of Fleet Signal wasn’t able to join, it would have been good to meet the man behind the blog – next time I’ll try and give some more notice mate! So onto the battle, our fleets were:
