I don't think it was particularly odd, apparently they were a much larger distributor than the other two in Europe. The issue doesn't seem to be with the starter sets for what its worth as those of us who had orders cancelled mostly missed out on individual unit boxes, etc.

Anyway, I bit the bullet and bought a bunch of Mercs + Mythos, I figure between the two I can put together a decent army. Managed to snag an Annihilator (or whatever the MG turret that goes on the Panzer 38 (t) is called) from Ammo Drop!

Wish they would restock mythos cultists, migo assault squads, and resin characters like angela and gregor. Been looking for them for a while to no avail.

Maybe ammodrop will be able to continue runs of resin characters and conversion sets.

Sadly this is the last run, "restocks" will only be a thing if you find it on ebay or places like noble knight re-buy from collectors once the stock on hand runs out.

That is why we have been trying to get all the stuff we wanted while we can...and some people went a bit crazy like chaos up there.

Granted i started my collection years ago, so i have already spent a bit.

I like where you are going with this for a dustified unit, a few things-DUST is pretty strict about uniformity for balance so the stats for the plane should match



going back to this, i am having fun dustifying a tiger 1, but i have a question, there is one tiger unit in the game, flammtiger, but it is whitout a turret, in my head it makes sence to increase the HP by 1 or 2 if a turret is present, but would that mess up the uniformity?

basicly what my tiger would be is just a more durable pz4 with higer ap cost.

I have been asking ammo drop if they would continue producing the resin stuff and they haven't answered. I suspect the answer is actually "yes" but they aren't saying so because it might run afoul of their agreement with Dust Studio and they are trying to skirt under the radar.

Evidently the steel kamikaze amd steel samurai are produced by/for Ammo Drop exclusively and when I asked Kallamity about whether he knew anything about it he said the only persin that would know is Luca at AmmoDrop...

so, Ill keep checking on their site until a Steel Samurai shows up in stock

so.....i got my mi-go order in...it just didn't have any minis in the box



It was a sealed box with 3 flight stands and the unit card...so i started digging around for alternatives.

Found these in 32mm for the mi-go raider squad

Welcome to the supply chain disruption than helped kill dust studios.

I get the same thing going in reverse especially anything i order from Russia. usually takes a month minimum to get the the USA.

It has not been a good week for me. first we had the empty box sent to me as i mentioned above and now the konigslothar/wotan kit i had on order from Poland apparently got canceled because it had taken some damage in shipping. i am still trying to get them to send it anyway so i can at least attempt to repair it.

Have not heard back on either case yet.

Taken damage from them to you, or from factory to webshop?
My package from them was done very sloppy, but everything was intact. Delivery from italy has been prima.

I imagine the poland store was caught offguard by the hoarding spree over the past month and things might have gone a bit hot for them.

Another thing that came as a supprise to me is how little space the kits take. Like, we all know kit boxes are small, but we are all used to pre assembled products from them, aka big boxes.
Seriously, the kit version of the ssu steelguard army box uses the same box size as a primed IJN walker and it is 1 walker and 9 powersuits in there.

No clue, they just sent a note saying it was "damaged and could not be sold" it was one of several they had already sold, apparently i got the short end of the stick so to speak.

I have a request in for a refund for the mi-go order, we will see what happens.

I managed to find a replacement on ammo drop i just had to pay through the nose for shipping on it.

Or "This will go for a mint on eBay soon enough, so we're keeping it and telling people it's damaged."

Good stuff.
going on week 7 for my miniature marked order. Tracking no longer works, fear that package might have gone to the void, normaly as said it takes 3-4 weeks for shipments from them to arrive to me.

Did get a box of AT-43 Therian guys - those spiky balls mine constructs, whatever they're called - that was smashed to pieces.

They, of course, send me a replacement free of charge.

Got my only dust mini prob ever... The soviet campaign pack with a portly iron (curtain) man flying power armor. It's a cool looking fig fwiw and i plan to use him someday in an rpg (dnd artificer?). I was tempted to get the IS-3 heavy tank and ISU-152 tank destroyer equivalents when FFG was doing their firesale but ultimately didn't for some reason.

Yea he is a superhuman hero for the ssu core block, called Ivan Vasilev Smersh, aka Winter Child, if you are too lazy to read the fluff.
Quite decent too but expensive, he costs basicly the same as tanks.

Thanks. I also would have accepted Comrade Porkins as a name too. I might eventually read the fluff but all I had the chance to do yesterday was reach into the box and pull him out. I haven't even looked at the tiles and I'm interested in those for rpg reasons too.

I'm guessing it is not an accident that his last name is a stalinist counterintelligence organization that itself is phonetically derived from the slavic word for death.

Not an accident at all, DUST has a lot of tongue and cheek humor as well as cliche settings on purpose. like the entire IJN faction being made up of school girls and ninjas, the mercenary faction basically being all WWII pinup girls. chracters named after actual era personalities or humor-IE. commisar poon, Dr. fu ling yu, machete mack, bloody baron(he is a flying ace aka the red baron), etc...

The winter child is super good, being both damage resilient, having a super infantry save and benefiting from cover (unlike the steel guards with the same super infantry save), has radiation weapons and can fly...so yeah he is super expensive game points wise. he is basically soviet ironman

contacted MM, problem solved, it was communication error from them. turns out the shipping had been changed from USPS to UPS, thus why the tracking no longer existed, and they did not inform me of the change.
order lies at my local pickup point and i am collecting it tomorrow.

Well that is a relief, i think i am pretty well done. i got my mythos up to 150 AP now. my other friend has his zombie army and panzer company army mostly finished, i think the only thing he is missing is the totenmeister character for his zombies.

Im still shopping scouring the deep recesses of the web for those odds and ends that are missing from my collection, getting very close to complete though. I've had to brush up on foreign language skills to get some of this stuff, most recently I had to fumble through Swedish and Italian lol.

Less lucky than you might think. A number of shops wouldn't ship stuff that I wanted and I wasn't about to drive anywhere between 2 and 17 hours (depending on the shop).
