Theres lots of online sales fraud in the US when it comes to hobby/collectible retail. People complain about inconsequential things and if they know how to navigate ebay/paypal, etc. dispute system can very easily get a full refund for an item without having to return it (i.e. they steal it/get it for free). Something like a minor dent in the packaging of a collectible item, or if you sell something advertised as "mint condition" but they feel its really "near mint", or if you're selling something like pokemon/magic cards and they feel like the cardstock or print quality is slightly off and indicative of bootleg cards, or if you sell a premium action figure and the joints are looser than they expect and indicative of an off-brand knockoff, etc.

All of those (and more) are examples of things I encountered personally while doing online sales for a local retailer, in every case they got their money back even when we were able to show them that the action figure we sold them was purchased by us directly from the official manufacturer/distributor, or that the reason for the difference in cardstock in the magic card set was because the set they purchased is older and predates a change that WotC made. The worst is when you clearly describe and photograph things like dents and defects in a product (like a rare action figures packaging) and someone complains about it and still forces their way to a refund even after they admit to not reading the listing or looking at the photographs carefully, etc.

So, a lot of stores don't bother, they are content to just sell locally without dealing with the headache.

That being said, if you have access to stores with inventory of things that I might be after, and I have access to stores with stuff that you might be after, maybe the solution to our problem is to do a trade?

I'm sorry to hear that :(

And yeah having friends from Scandinavia who have come to stay/live in the US for extended periods there is definitely large degrees of cultural separation.

Anyway, if anyone happens across a Blutkreuz Headquarters box (Laser Grenadier Command Squad + ~5 Characters), keep me in mind, I will reward you with a handsome finders fee as I have been unable to find one myself.

A little update time-

Starting off i took a couple recent group shots-

My complete allies force-

Spoiler:


And my full Luftwaffe force-

Spoiler:


We also did a smallish 105 point game tonight-

The scenario was the plane crash in the jungle. why axis were fighting axis? well considering one force was Blutkreuz we sort of imagined why there might be a rift.

the Blutkreuz starting line-

Spoiler:



I did what drop troops do and moved to eliminate the largest threats before i could start searching for the objective that could only be claimed on turn 4, and only by infantry.

the zombies pushed forward and even got into some hand to hand, but i managed to make some stupid good amount of saves from shooting. it was anybodies game until turn 4 when rolf found the objective and won the game. Kurt got MVP because he and the anti tank squad managed to take down 2 heavy walkers...and Kurt himself just refused to die. he survived being assaulted by CC zombies, shot by a gorilla flamefaust, shot at by the prinzluther twice before finally dying to the command squads guns.

100p aint small if done right, gotta fokus more on armor 1 infantry squads and walkers in 8-12 ap range + no air, and you will have about same amount of models to move around in a 100p game then you have in a 175-200p.

one of my 100p ssu forces list: spetsnaz; vasiliy, ivan, saboteur squad, kill squad, assult squad, TSH; aleksei, anatoly, natasha, block type 47, steelguards type 46.
so 2 heroes, 15 troops and 5 walkers.




Good thing about zombies, they are everyones enemy, just do a "hail hydra" twist

I'll be doing some glamor shots of my collection once everything finishes delivering lol

I now have ~1200 points of SSU, Allies, and Axis, plus another 500 or so of IJN and combined Mythos/Mercs. Pretty much done shopping unless I can come across any of these for a reasonable price:

1x Gregor the Defector
2x Cultist Saboteurs
2x Steel Guard Fire Support Squad
2x PT-47B

other than that, if the missing Dust USA container is ever located I'm gonna try to snag 8x Ninja Multikits and 6x Culstist Multikits.

Well you got quite a good collection so you can at least have variety and enough stuff to do what i do and have armies for other players to use.

Myself i really do not need anything per say. there are a few items that would be ok to have like the steel guards sniper team that fits the theme of my SSU army but i am already at 150 AP which is the normal sized games we play.

The only mini i really wanted was an offical "tom" character for my tank commander. i am using a generic guy for now so it isn't like i "need" him.

My friend who plays the other army in the battle report has everything he needs except the Blutkreuz hero set/command squad box-mostly the totenmeisterin

I really wanted to add in a few of the future releases that will sadly never be made now-the priest version of the bulldog, P-61 black widow version of the heavy phaser aircraft, mythos deep ones,and the IJN battle robots.

Yeah, I went through the old preview posts and got incredibly sad. The next couple waves of models for this game would have been some of the best minis for this game or any other out there.

New players mean more demo games!

So we had 2 experienced gamers at the FLGS tonight that had never played DUST so i broke out the allied and SSU armies they requested to play and walked them through a 150 point match.

Because they were just learning the system, we didn't do any of the fantastic mission scenarios. we went a full 8 turns with one SSU combat engineer walker standing alone against a plane and an artillery walker. dice were rolled and models were moved.


Both of them had a good time, so i expect to see more games in the future. our other axis player also finally got his konig luthor in so there was much happiness there.

Glad you got a hold of them. They have lots of inventory not listed on their site yet, I think they are behind in that endeavor.

Our game of DUST tonight was operation titan

Game size 205 ish points

My allied force

Spoiler:


Points are scored in this mission by a variety of accomplishments

. first blood
. kill a vehicle with an infantry unit
. kill a vehicle with a single shooting attack
. kill a vehicle
. have an undamaged vehicle survive the game
. kill a heavy vehicle with a light vehicle

Etc...

The setup looked like so

Spoiler:


Spoiler:



The game had an 8-turn limit, however in the normal case of DUST when there is this much firepower on the table things tend to die quickly...especially in the first turn where i was getting some horrible dice rolls

By the end of turn 1 the table looked like this

Spoiler:


Axis were ahead 3/2 at this point scoring first blood, tank kill, and tank kill of heavy VS heavy.

By the end of turn 2 we had savaged each other pretty well. The axis were still slightly ahead.


Spoiler:


By the end of turn 3 there wasn't much left-

We pushed on one last turn to turn 4 at that point i had managed to kill his last heavy laser walker with great help from the character Marek and his phaser rifle.

Leaving me with 3 points ahead and no way for him to recover, so we called it there.

Just a fast one tonight-75 points, just to try out the new models-got the winter child SSU super soldier character.

Bit of a beast clocking in at 21 points, that is more than some heavy tanks.

Spoiler:


i went up against a combined US ranger/british SAS allied force.

Spoiler:



Spoiler:


The highlight was the epic battle between the winter child and Rhino-

Well we finally got everybody together and all the new shiny.

This game was a 170-point blutkreuz VS steel guard.

The scenario was a "chase the alien" objective.

So, each player gets to move the aliens a random direction 4" every time they activate a unit. starting turn 4 if you have a unit within 4" of the alien at the end of the turn and no enemies are within 4", you can "capture" the alien for a win

the setup-

Spoiler:


Spoiler:


A little epic closeup-the winter child chewing through some gorillas including the "marcus" special gorilla character.

Spoiler:




The win on turn 5 went to the axis force but only just barely with the totenmeisterin scoring the winning capture.

Yeah, there is a crashed ship and a little grey aliens model i have (reaper minis) that starts in the middle of the table.

That little guy ran all over the table. before he finally got caught.

I downloaded most of the official scenario PDFs from the DUST USA site before it shut down. this is one we had been meaning to try.

I finally got those Cultists on the table.

Game 1 was a battle of monsters. the ancient gods faced off against the undead.

The setup-

150 points, clash of titans kill mission

the axis force of blutkreuz

Spoiler:


The mythos force-

Spoiler:


I sent a light force around his right flank as a distraction and managed to tie up 3 units.

Spoiler:


It turned into a cat and mouse game as i could not get close enough with the avatar to attack his tank without exposing him to withering fire.

In the end the zombies won the day but it was very close with both of us down to only a few models.

Spoiler:



Game 2

VK stash-

mythos VS panzer grenadiers with armor support.

This is another new addition that is seeing it's first table action.

I managed to get a 3d printed sci-fi hover STUGG to use as the DUST hetzer laser tank destroyer. of course the panzer prince tank commander character had to take it for a spin.

Spoiler:


This mission turned out to be a bad matchup for my army as i had no real close combat unit and most of the mythos force is dedicated to it, so if i go out to far i just get wrecked. it allowed the faster mythos monsters to jump on the objective and drag it to victory.
