Firestorm Invasion?

Probably most of you know Spartan Games company. They produce some interesting games like Uncharted Seas, Dystopian Wars and Firestorm Armada but what I found recently is that they have created a child company that is not aimed at retail sale, just a mail order service called Studio Sparta.

What I've read from the companys website is that Studio Sparta is a way to let designers from Spartan Games create miniatures that wouldn't fit into parent's company core games or standalone miniatures, but one project in their collection stands out, and might become a fully supported game in the future.

Firestorm Invasion is a ground-based warfare set in Firestorm Armada galaxy. Thanks to digital sculpting Firestorm Invasion can be set in any scale so what Studio Sparta want to do is to make 10mm scale massive battles and when it comes to face to face combat scale it upwards to 15mm or even 28mm.

Their range consist only of two factions at the moment with only 4 unit types each, you've got tanks, apc + weapon platforms, mechs and gunships at your disposal but the sculpts are very nice and promissing.

It is priced reasonably, offer a starter set and might be a direct competition to upcomming Dropship Commander.
