Dust Tactics "Operation Blue Thunder" unboxed!

Under the following link you will find the article about the unboxing of the Dust Tactics Starter Set. It is for the moment in German, but the pictures tell most of the story anyway.

Enjoy!

The link takes me to a page where I need to register :-/

Interestingly, the German isn't a problem... Google Chrome did an awesome job of translating the login page (I'm not sure how it would do with gaming-related language, though)

My friend received this yesterday actually, and it is pretty cool. The models are really nicely detailed, and come primed and oddly decaled as well. My only concern is that the models don't feel like gaming models but more like scale models, feel really fragile. Other then that first game is going to be tonight so I'll report back on it I guess.

as a rule I try not to get in to new games, but this one really has me intrigued. I may have to do some research on it.

I don't like the Wanzers myself but it looks like a good pile of stuff in a box and I hope it will do well in bridging the gap between boardgames and tabletop wargames.

I like them. Might pick them up someday. If I can find them. The rule set looks very ellaborate. The walkers remind me of a PS2 video game I have lying around somewhere. But I can't remember the name.

Is SLAI a video game? The game I meant was set in WW2 but with walkers just like that. Yoyu played as a charcter in a walker just like that. I'm not home right now, but I will look for that game.

Wow, I was getting super excited after reading that page and seeing the pics of these awesome models.

Then I searched for it online and found this page:
http://www.dust-tactics.com/products_d.php?nid=2&id=46

Is it really going to be $300, or is this some kind of mis-print?

Edit: It's listed at an expected price of $100 here, so I'm going to hope the above is an error...

$300 for the Special Edition. read the little bit that mentions "All Robots and figurines are hand painted by professional artist"

According to Warstore the original price of the vanilla game is $100

http://www.thewarstore.com/product55596.html

edit: gah beat me to the normal price

That's the premium edition. THe difference is that the Premium edition models will be painted: "All Robots and figurines are hand painted by professional artist" - taken from the link you posted.

Thats for the hand painted deluxe set. Retail for the regular set is $100, thewarstore has it for $69.99, im sure other online stores will have it for similar.


I really like the look of the mech/tank things, but I know it would be another box set I never use. Im just gonna stick to my 40k and Battletech.

Well, maybe pick up some of the mech/tank things to paint up just for display...if you can buy them without the troopers, rules, etc.

yes! Ring of red! That was the game I meant. That was a good game IMO. That might be the reason I might wanna buy it.

Played a couple of games last night and it was pretty fun. Both games only took about half and hour from start to finish.

The minis are already preprimed in olive-green and german-gray. I will soon post pictures of painted models. First test with one of the miniatures went quite well, the primer is very thin and nice to paint on.

Sorry for the misinformation on the price there, guys . And thanks for the multitude of quick corrections

$69.99 from the warstore sounds perfect!! I will definitely be getting this as soon as I can weasel some funds away from the wife's attentive gaze...

I'm actually glad that they're just primed, I think I'd like to paint 'em myself . Not that I'm awesome, but pre-paints don't appeal to me as much.

What's even better: Only minimal extra-material were the two halves of the form meet. I am very picky and even I needed to remove only here and there something.

Yeah $70 isnt bad for all that you get. If I can pick up the mechs separately for say $20ish each I might get a couple here and there.

Why? If it's actually primer and not a base coat it's going to have a very marginal affect on your basecoat/final colours.
