See You At Gencon!!!

So here we are. Its the last day of July and I leave for Gencon Wednesday morning. I will be helping to set up the Infinity tables and terrain as well as the Spartan booth Wednesday afternoon after a drive of a little less than 4 hours. Telarion will be attending this year. So if you are looking for pick up games of Firestorm Armada and want to test your skills against the North American Champ come find me at the Spartan Booth or in the exhibition hall with my fellow Warcors. So what am I looking forward to? Several things.

The New OSO! SeerK's First Look

Greetings all! SeerK here to talk Firestorm Armada. Spartan Just released the stats for the new OSO ships this past week. We had all our old favorites see updates in the model department and we had some new ships added to really flesh out the fleet. The new ships are following the trend set by Firestorm Task Force. That is we had a light cruiser and escort carrier added to the mix. The addition of an actual cruiser has helped immensely in terms of fleet building. Lets take a look at the three new vessels.

Today Is Our Independence Day! Happy 4th!

Greetings all!  SeerK here to wish everybody a Happy Independence day.  Today we Americans celebrate our Independence.  The Staff and I want to say have an excellent and safe Independence Day.  Celebrate, but don't be dumb about it.  Sadly we have had some pretty dry weeks here in Michigan and many of the Firework shows have been canceled or moved.  The gang and myself are going to a party later to celebrate.

In a related note we went and continued a 4th tradition and saw Independence Day: Resurgence last night.  I have a sudden urge to play Combined Army now and I am looking at the Relthoza in a new light.  The movie was good for what it was.  2 hours of explosions and shooting the crap out of Aliens.

On that note I leave you with this.......

Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in this history of mankind.
Mankind -- that word should have new meaning for all of us today.
We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore.
We will be united in our common interests.
Perhaps its fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution -- but from annihilation.
We're fighting for our right to live, to exist.
And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice:

"We will not go quietly into the night!
We will not vanish without a fight!
We're going to live on!
We're going to survive!"
Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!
