There are four factions at the moment:

>Axis (Germany, Italy, Japan)
>Allies (Free France, USA, Commonwealth)
>Sinosoviets (Russia, China)
>Vrill (one of their ships has been discovered by the Axis in Antarctica)

I would only have interest in the walkers, and here only the Axis walkers. That being said, I will be waiting for when I can buy me some. Those allied walkers are just kinda meh for me.

Worth every cent! The paintjob is very good. Not Golden Demon, but definitely worth the $ 300!!!

THIS is MY game! I love Dust for so long, it is almost unreal to finally have it in my hands.
BTW: All minis are the same size as AT-43 minis, might be a good time to get some UNA or Red Bloc...


Yo Agis,
fancy a game of DUST versus me ?

Hi Moloch, please check your PMs!

Those campaign box sets sound really good, looks like this game is going to be brilliant.

This topic got buried fast. Anyone who has it: how are the rules?

Four scholars at Oxford were making their way down the street, and happened to see a group of ladies of the evening. “What’s this?” said the first. “A jam of tarts?” “Nay,” said the second, “an essay of Trollope’s.” “Rather, a flourish of strumpets,” advanced the third. “No, gentlemen,” concluded the last. “Here we have an anthology of pros.”

Download them for free from the DUST website dude. They're a bit simple... But there may be a fatter rulebook in the future if the AT 43 release model is followed at all.

Jesus one can only HOPE that comes to pass. In a world of Rackhams and others just not releasing gak at any kind of pace or even at all, I guess you just hear about new blood like this and hope they do better.

I'll be really happy if a tabletop rulebook is done at some point. I should get my two boxed sets monday and that will definitely motivate me to paint em all!

Since the comics are only afew pages up to now that was to be expected. There is more fluff in the books.

The comics, while sporting nice art, are rather vapid.

Some pics of the Deluxe models!


I am a long time DUST fan. I read all the comics, I got the source books and even bought a 1/6 Playkit once...
That DUST now finally comes to the tabletop is IMO a real blessing. Being the fanboy I said I was foolish enough to order one of the Deluxe DUST Tactics sets. Boy are these prepaints good! specially the walkers need none or only very little retouches.
The only thing I do not like are the bases, so expect some re-basing soon.

Size comparison - AT-43 fits best!!! So get some of these cheap while you can... ;-)

More, including a AT-43 walker/ DUST comparison, here-> http://www.adpublishing.de/html/dust.html

Dang German walkers are growin on me. It's 100 for the set and 300 for the deluxe painted set, right? So you are basically paying 2 x model cost for painted? Seems a bit chingy, but I dont price such things much these days; I'm pretty out of the loop. But the paint Does look nice, I must give it that.

Thewarstore.com has the basic (unpainted) set for $69.99, FRPGames.com has it for $79.95. Id imagine there are others selling it for similar prices.

Well I've literally just played my first game of this.

I think the best way to describe it is as a complicated board game, more than a simplified tabletop game. But really it is a mix of the 2.

Sadly I can't see much depth in the rules, but then I thought the same when I first played AT-43, and I'm still playing that now.

The models are of a good quality, and the primer coat looks easy to paint over (shown very well by the studio painted ones)

I think if you were to buy the properly painted ones you wouldn't be dissapointed, definitely an improvement on Rackham's pre-paints (but they're also a lot more expensive)

All in all a good game, but I won't be buying it myself. Got 'proper' wargames to concentrate on first, with finishing off my Malifaux stuff, and starting on all the new DE stuff to add to my army.

Well, easy to read rules are the way to go. There is no need to make rules overcomplicated to, in the end, achive less than the games with the easier rules do.

Everyone can write complicated rules. But the real trick is making them easy to read and still give you all the options you need. The best example is Kings of War. Most are embarrassed when they see the few pages, but as soon as they have a few games under their belt they realize how concentrated the rules are.

Well I think the thing that takes this a step further than Kings of War (a game I'm certainly looking at getting into) is the simplification of measurements and dice rolling. You are just using the squares to measure, and you're either going to succeed on effectively a 3+, or on a 5+. Admittedly I do like not having to constantly ask what the toughness (or whatever) of the enemy's models is, you just need to know whether it is Infantry level 1-4, Tank level 1-6, or Flyer level 1-3 . . . A whole lot easier.

I guess I just don't see it as a game I will get hooked to, and therefore a game I'm not going to buy when there are so many games I already enjoy playing.

Well, don't forget that this game is a hybrid and that TT rules will be released further down the line.

I got a big LOL out of this bit from that review : "and in reality that’s what 40k has come down to is just moving your squad close enough to another players troops to compare the # of dice rolled and remove casualties". Does seem to be a bit of truth to that...how many times do you see people judging the value of a unit simply by the amount of dice it throws?


It was a nice review to read. Every day Dust moves farther up on my list of things to get.

That sounds... vaguely familiar.

I hope it happens, but, you know, no breath holding and all that.

I'll buy some though - for use in Secrets of the Third Reich!
