Spirit Of Fire, Blockade Runner, Smaller HGC Ships For June 2017

Spartan Games has announced the June 2017 slate of new releases, which include new shineys for Halo Fleet Battles and Halo Ground Command.

Halo Fleet Battles will see two new ships, the Phoenix-class Colonial Support Vessel (most famously portrayed as the “Spirit of Fire” in Halo Wars) for the UNSC, and the Covenant Blockade Runner which will be familiar to Halo 5 players.

Halo Ground Command will see smaller (and cheaper) 1:300-scale versions of the Pelican and Phantom dropships, created in response to feedback which said the larger versions are too big for the average miniatures case.

HGC will also get the UNSC Longsword and Covenant Seraph fighters in 1:300-scale which, like the dropship models, are intended to replace shadow templates with actual models.
