Weekender: Halo Fleet Battles Special!

Halo Fleet Battles:

Welcome to a special Weekender where we’re taking a look at the awesome New Halo: Fleet Battles game from Spartan Games. We’ve got Neil and Derek in the studio unboxing the game and telling us about working with Microsoft and 343 Industries plus loads more…


The Halo-verse has been crying out for a proper miniatures game for a while (yes, we know there are some out there but not like this!) so it was great news to hear that Spartan Games were making Fleet Battles.

Lloyd sits down with the guys from Spartan to take a look at whats in the massive Starter Box and learn more about designing the game and fitting it all into the background.

Bolt Action

We also take some times to delve into a new release from Warlord Games and talk Bolt Action. Germany Strikes is the new source book covering the early period of the war.

It is also the time for heroes like the insane Mad Jack Churchill who could make for quite the iconic hero on the tabletop.

Prize Winners

We have some prize winners to announce for USAriadna Week and a recap of those winners from last week since Warren forgot to mention them!

Join Backstage For XLBS Tomorrow

Watch out for the XLBS show tomorrow where Lloyd will be talking about the future Halo miniatures game with Spartan Games.

Are you liking the look of Halo?

  • WOW !!! I always thought that Spartan games people were young geeky types, these two dudes are nearly as old as me. I feel so much better now. Oh and the game looks excellent, but seeing as I have bought into every Spartan game so far, I would say that wouldn't I.

  • Painted two Covenant ORS heavies and Epoch Carriers plus various escorts a pleasure to paint those were the battlegroup upgrade boxes want to get the main box soon.

  • Im glad this has been made for people that aren't into the big and complecated strategy boardgames. This has been made to play and enjoy instead of having to remember and constantly go back to the manual to understand what things do.

  • Why do I have to put these together and paint them myself when I can buy Star Wars: Armada and Star Trek: Fleet Captains preassembled and prepainted for the same price?

  • Will there be UNSC Destroyers? and what about the Covenant CAS-Carriers?

  • So he's a huge Halo fan but doesnt know what actually happened on reach? No harm done but please read the first 2 novels at least, they are fantastically written and there are great audio versions here on YouTube.

    Game seems to have potential!

  • I just going to say that the epoch class heavy carrier seems to be very reminisce of the athens class heavy carrier designed by the sins of the prophets modding crew

  • I want to know how difficult it will be to paint the models, especially going for a shiny effect on the covy ships. The only kit I've finished painting was a flat green m3 lee with minor detail.

  • If you see a spartan running on a covenant ship, KEEP UP!

    Posted July 14, 2020
  • I wonder if they'll ever make enough minatures to allow me to re-create the battle of Psi Serpentas…

  • I really hope these guys do credit Andy "the Man" Chambers somewhere in their rule book. Their game is very clearly a grand evolution of BFG.

  • Anyone want Halo Wars 2? Maybe have it similar to Company Of Heroes 2/Warcraft?
    This reminds me of it so much. XD

    Posted July 14, 2020
  • Looking great, I'll have to pick that up at some point… Might also be the perfect thing to get some of my non-wargamer friends into the hobby 🙂

  • Star Wars Armada ships look better. But this game does look sick

    Posted July 14, 2020
  • Definitely going to try to get a demo of this at Gen Con next week.  Looks great

  • Did anyone catch the name of the new bomber???

  • I pretty much skimmed through the video, but do they talk about the Covenant Assault Carrier unit at all? Release dates or plans?

  • I hope the rule book isn't to wordy. its annoying when rule books over explain everything. like large paragraphs to explain simple movement.

    Still, very excited to get my copy!!!!!

  • So if they do an update on the unsc marathon cruiser will they change it to a snickers cruiser

  • I'm not a wargamer but I'm really looking forward to Halo Fleet Battles! It seems so much fun too and accessible!

    Posted July 14, 2020
  • The ship you're thinking of with the gravity lift was the Truth and Reconciliation which was featured in the second mission of Halo CE/Anniversary. The ship model though the CCS-class Battlecrusier has been featured MANY times in many games and books, its pretty common.

    The smaller SVD-class Heavy Corvette I believe first was first mentioned in The Fall of Reach(the book) and was actually first seen in Halo: Reach(the game) and then has been seen again in Halo 4: Forward unto Dawn(live action mini series) Halo 4(game) Halo: Escalation(comic seires) and now this!

    Posted July 14, 2020
  • How can you freak out about Halo but then say you never read The Fall of Reach? Come on now.

    Posted July 14, 2020
  • Now all we need is a Mass Effect Fleet Battles and I can die happy, the game doesn't even need to be created, just give them the liscense and ill die happy…

  • My god Loyd it says UNSC on the cards!! Haha!

    Posted July 14, 2020
  • I would love to see Anchors and Thanatos Destroyers. Thanatos Destroyers can toe to toe some of the similar sized covenant vessels.

  • My god I'M SO EXCITED!!! I really hope my starter box was in the half that was shipped yesterday!

    Posted July 14, 2020
  • Good to see BoW covering Spartan. Can't wait to play Halo Fleet Battles!

    Also, I wonder if Derek knows that "Master Chef" is a Halo meme. 🙂

  • Another person how wanted to use a bow to fight was Anders Lassen, he partitioned his superior to use bow and arrow but was refused, they said it was inhuman. Anders Lassen got the VC after his death in 1945
