Hello again fellow naval gamers!
As always, there is a lot to catch you up on from the last month! Let’s get to it.
Landlubber made an interesting post in Dystopian Wars Tactics, talking about the legendary One Good Shot, those times you rolled snake eyes for a Critical Hit or you sank a battleship with 2 dice!
In the Firestorm Armada section, MBS member and Planetfall Guru Stephan has put together a great thread that contains Planetfall FAQs. This is a must-read for anyone interested the game:
As I mentioned in last month’s newsletter, a sub-forum has been created for the new Halo fleet game. As release for this game draws near, there has been a lot of activity! You can get caught up on all the excitement here:
The other New Hotness is the MMO naval game World of Warships (WoWS). The game is still in Closed Beta, but it looks like the Open Beta will be starting in a matter of weeks! Don’t forget, MBS will be organizing a clan for the game once the Open Beta begins. If you are interested, make sure to look at the recruiting thread here:

In the Showcase, Stephan has posted some incredible fighter and bomber tokens that he has been working on for Firestorm Armada:
I’ve been keeping the blog active, as well! I put together a brief report on a Sails Of Glory game I played recently. I’ve also posted a review of Topside Minis, a company that makes 2D markers for use with various WWI and WWII naval games.
Speaking of the blog, I’m always open to posting guest blog posts if any of you have an article you would like to submit! Contact me via email or forum PM if interested.

If you have any naval gaming-related files you would like hosted on MBS, or if you know of a cool naval gaming website or company, please let me know! I am more than happy to upload files to the Downloads page, and the various sub-forums have stickied Resources topics in them.
Thanks to all of those who have helped spread the word about MBS by Liking the Facebook page! If you haven’t done so yet, please consider going and taking a look:
Until next month, Good Luck and Good Hunting!
