This announcement:
"In the mobile age that we now live in, even wargaming hasn’t escaped change – the increasing use of electronic versions of rulebooks is something we see at almost every show and gaming club we go to. Rulebooks are often reviewed by new players before they decide whether to invest in a game, and Spartan Games in consistently asked to make rulebooks available to download so new players can assess our games without cost.

We have decided to make all our core rulebooks available to download FREE from our website as follows:

December 8th – Dystopian Wars and Firestorm Armada

January 12th – Dystopian Legions and Firestorm Planetfall

The downloads do not in any way invalidate the current rulebooks, they are NOT a new version of any rules."

So now if you're interested in one of the Spartan games, you'll be able to download a PDF version for free from these dates. Or you may decide to eschew the pulped dead tree version altogether and spend your money on models. :)

you know if it will be a full rulebook fluff and everything, or they doing the Corvus Belli approach and having that in the hard copy? but also means I can dust off my D Wars stuff due to only having 1st ed.

Looks like it's the full rulebooks. So for DWars, it would be a PDF of the Admiral Edition V2.0 book and if you wanted the Commodore Edition, that has the expanded sections. I have both (the Admiral is better for gaming, but the Commodore is more of a "nice to have", also the added wait is better for smacking your opponent over the head with), and don't think this is any real issue.

This shows a lot of appreciation on the part of Spartan Games of the realities of the wargaming market.

The hobby is a lot more crowded and fragmented than 10 or even 5 years ago with many players having fingers in multiple games systems.

A free downloadable rulebook not only attracts potential new players, it also keeps "grazers" like me engaged and buying their core products.

You can download the Firestorm Armada Rulebook here: https://www.hightail.com/download/UlRRT ... R085TE5Vag

Edit: Updated URL as Spartan changed it.
