  1. I think they're going to hurt their reputation by ignoring their customer base. I know that I won't be funding any kickstarters or picking up anymore spartan products until I can count on a return to balance. Not perfect balance, but there must be some kind of attempt at it. I play Armada and was going to get into planetfall....I'm not interested in Halo or dystopian wars in the least. I also won't be picking up the other firestorm game....I can't recall it's name at the moment. I've lost faith in Spartan's ability to meet deadlines and keep their commitments, so I'm just going to hold back on buying anything until they prove me wrong. Even if they never made any new planetfall units, I would buy in (the entire relthoza line, at a minimum) so long as there are decent rules for all the factions. However, if I get tired of waiting or lose interest I'll just take my money to another miniature company (Infinity, Dark Age, etc.).
  2. Oh okay. Got it.
  3. I'd love to hear how the beta is affecting the Relthoza. I'm really eager to buy a helix or two......or 6 I'm planning to hold off until I can get a better feel for how they'll be in the new edition. Any info from anyone?
  4. Sorry....I know this is an old thread, but I've been away a while. I think the model is really cool looking (definitely test print due to way too much blank space and not enough detail). However, I don't feel like it really fits the relthoza fleet. It doesn't really "feel" like a relthoza ship. I think it needs to be more angled and sharp, more predatory. I agree that our mk2 dreadnought is the best looking ship in the fleet, and in my opinion, all of Firestorm Armada.
  5. I'd like to see a little more range on the relthoza ships.....not a ton, just a little, to make them more moderate ranged rather than close ranged. I also think it would be cool for them to get some kind of a bonus mechanic for attacking enemies in their rear arc, seeing as in their fluff it's a big part of their culture to ambush and is considered honorable. I don't think this would happen, but it would be fun. It may not even be feasible, but I believe it would pair nicely with all the shunt abilities that are spread throughout the faction.
  6. Are the cruiser's you're referring to @Hive the ones in the reinforcement box?
  7. I love the bane, simply because it keeps the vertical asthetic, but deviates from the "space triangles" theme. It's a good contrast that complements the fleets.
  8. I'm deciding on whether to purchase into planetfall or not......I love the minis, but the new rule set worries me. I play relthoza and I have heard that things are rough for them right now. I think I'm just going to wait and see what happens and if Spartan can be relied on to put these things out. No point in buying in if the faction I love isn't fun to play with or if there are excessive delays.
  9. @tansalus I don't plan to play in tournaments or anything like that. My friends and I like to just have fun. However, if you can only, viably, field 1 or 2 strategies with hopes of winning, it makes for a dull, predictable, and unengaging game.

  11. I really hope that they get the relthoza back into alignment with playability....otherwise I'll probably just disconnect from spartan games all together and encourage my friends to do the same. I'm not really willing to be pushed towards another faction. If I can't (viably) play the faction I really like, what's the point of playing? If a company isn't concerned enough with my satisfaction and enjoyment of their product, why should I give them my money? There are way too many good options out there for me to waste my hard earned money on games that aren't fun for me to play due to imbalance.
  12. Yeah.....that sounds unfortunate. I could see playing the same style/list over and over becoming very repetitive and boring. In my opinion, this is a clear indicator that they're underpowered and/or poorly balanced. When a large portion of your faction isn't usable and you have only one option for a viable strategy.....well it kind of takes the strategy part out of the game because you don't have a choice in how you play. I think being overpowered is just as bad as being underpowered though. I do not enjoy face stomping my opponent. I guess we'll see what happens with the new rules. I may just pull the trigger anyway. I'll probably be buying online. Any suggestions? I'd really like to buy at my LGS but their prices are ridiculously high, so even though I want to support them, I can't justify it.
  13. @Nuck Fewton Nice. Sounds like it was fairly even. Did you feel underpowered (without comparing to the old stats and rules)?
  14. That's unfortunate. Relthoza really are the only reason I'm involve with Planetfall or FSA......if they're over-nerfed then there's not much point in buying into planetfall. I guess I could always use one of the previous versions of the rules
  15. Thanks for the reply @WestAustralian. Good to hear. I've heard my spiders have been stomped on lately lol
