First Strike, Halo – Spartan Assault, January 17 & 18 2015

 

Halo-Spartan Assault Redux January 17-18, 2015

First Strike, Jan. 2015

The South Beach Pimps scenario paintball team will be at First Strike event Jan. 17 & 18 2015. It’s our first event of the 2015 year.  We will be playing for General Rocky.

Spartans and their glorious triumphs in battle, though strangely silent concerning Humanity’s slow and imminent loss of the war against the Covenant. The Covenant can be seen as the Persian army, and the Flood as the Ten Thousand Immortals; unstoppable, innumerable, building their armies from the bodies of their conquered. Here we have yet another metaphor for the ring shape of Halo; the Spartans are encircled, but wait, could this be a Blue vs Red Spartan event….

Blue Team Leader – Frank Connell, Lieutenant is a SPARTAN-II commando. As of 2553, he is one of the few remaining SPARTAN-IIs and holds the highest rank among his active-duty peers.

Red Team Leader – Rocky Cagnoni, Petty Officer Second Class was a SPARTAN-II super soldier and led teams of other Spartan-II’s on multiple occasions as well as being an electronics expert.
