During the covenant invasion of the city of
a ground of marines is defending the power plant in sector 45. Aware that if
the covenant capture this place could result in the destruction of several
blogs of the city and losing power of the defence batteries of the sector. Elysium
Ready to sell their life for a high price the UNSC would never let the aliens take their city.
Armies: Starter armies found in the box of Halo ground command plus one wraith, one Scorpion tank, Pelican and phantom
The battlefield: Cities streets, several buildings and 2 fores (represent by gardens).
Deployment: The UNSC player deploy his men close to the middle of the board and early in the game
The covenant advance using the cover of the forest, the phantom appears on the sky and drops a supply cache for the covenant land forces dangerously close to the occupied UNSC building. During this manoeuvre the alien airship is hit by rocket launchers from the central building, losing one damage level.
the unit of ghost advance and open fire on the building killing only two bases
The ghosts open fire again and clean the building of humans, while the phantom doge the fire of the missile launchers and leave the battlefield by the north, during those intense moments humans advance to open fire to the covenant in the forest close to the building and several missiles damage twice the Wraith tank, meanwhile with a roar a unit of Warthogs arrive as reinforcements!
The commander elite with his sword decide to end with the infidels and charge the unit of humans on the open street, dogging the shooting he mange to reduce the unit to a single base. Meanwhile on the north a single hero advance in the buildings, is the Spartan pablo! (yep, that is the name that ONI give him), he reach the base of the power plant, where a Pelican pas over and leave a weapon cache.
Seeing this threath the two hunters charge Pablo, but the Spartan use his laser and kill one on round 3, and the second in the beginning or round 4.
During those tense moments the Wraith (that was the anti air varian) open fire tanking one damage level from the Pelican.
The last human reinforcements arrive! An Scorpio tank enter the battle and destroy the covenant tank that during two rounds dodge the missiles from the humans, turning him into a pile of metal and fire.
The Ghost outflank the warthogs and kill one of the vehicles during this turn.
The unit of Grounts from the far forest cross the street and charge the Spartan Pablo!, during tense moments lasers and plasma shots are interchange, but Pablo manage to kill them all.
The Ghost kill all the humans from the building, but the scorpion tank move to shooting position and kill one of the ghost in retaliation, to be follow by the Pelican that returned to the battlefield and finish the ghost unit in a swift barrage. The covenant commander had enough and call for the phantom, who enter and destroy the Scorpion tank with his firepower.
Turn 6 (final turn)
The battle ended with a fight in the centre, the last Warthog kill the grount unit in the forest, the Spartan and Elite commander interchange blows but none died, at the end of the round the defenders still alive.

Recently many of us was shock by the news of the
Spartan games closing their doors. In my case was terrible as is not just the
end of a dream for several person and the jobs lost, but the end of epic Halo
wargaming both in space and ground.
Spartan games made two halo ranges: Halo fleet battles and Halo ground command, both set in the events of the fall of the planet reach. Withing those ranges you could cover amazing events and battles transpired in the halo universe and the models and rules were top of the line.
The fall of Spartan games is terrible, but the game is so good that the community is trying to keep it alive ( I recommend to look for the facebook ground halo: ground command) and now we must try to support and expand this game until another company pick it up.
In a future I plan to make a new tap with all the rules and cards of the game for newcomers and also guides for alternative models for the game. I hope this game will continue alive and I recommend to you try it, is a blast of fun.

Looking for alternative models for Halo Ground command I stumble with the website Clear horizon miniatures. In their store I found the range of
28 mm hell divers, these
models are almost perfect alternative for your ODST models in your halo games.
With a good quality and several options I recommend to you to check this range.
