Running a bit different list tonight

More of a focus on armor as i am building an airborne force for my planes around the
Fallschirmjäger so i wanted my heavy grenadiers to have a different feel.

The 150 point force, with only a single character this time.




VS an allied force of heavy rangers previously posted.

As usual since this was a demo game we just went for a bloodbath mission and it did not disappoint'

We got through a total of 3 rounds before the end.

The setup
AXIS


ALLIES



At the end of turn 2



Turn 3 finale



The allies started out really strong, they managed to reduce all my grenadier teams to a single wound/model. killing both my heavy walkers before a few bad dice rolls on the american side turned things around in the final turn.

Nice battle report Aphyon, thanks!

Our last match was the Catacombs scenario, where you must awaken Mythos monsters to caputer ojbectives. 100 points, infantry only! It was possibly the most off-the-hook game we've ever had. Totally rad fun.

Excellent stuff, keep the pics coming! did you post your results to the "endless war" world map tracker?

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScYq6ahT6UVTsFmZ4Dc96C7vvn_WP6wGW3Q_4N8zxc2wzbfZw/viewform

So what was that about 75 points per side?

They have quite a few great scenarios on the website, though i have only used a few. i am looking forward to using my own scenario this coming weekend.

Just played a bit of a home brew scenario.


Allied attackers attempting to break through and destroy a fuel cash with a demo charge. axis forces successfully defended but at great cost.

Armies were as those previously posted. at 150 points

At the end of the game the allied forces had a command squad, command tank and a single heavy walker left on the table. the axis force was down to a heavy weapon support squad, a command squad and a tank commander character without a tank.

i have been neglecting my duties here as the DUST fanboy

Production is slowly coming back so DUST has added a few new items


a giant terrain piece for the cuthulhu fans-



A new rocket artillery tank for the SSU with kutusha and other rocket pods (one for AA)
based on the amphibious chassi previously released as a command vehicle/transport/light tank




Although i am not a fan a new merc force with alternate weapons options is also in the new release

Here is a video on the new items from the war factory

After a bit of a break from DUST did a game against a player building an NDAK panzer force.

Since he was running a desert force we decided to use an appropriate themed table.

He didn't want to face the SSU so we used my rangers as the opposition force. we did a 150 point game so he borrowed a few of my units to get him enough points.

He actually free handed the decals for the NDAK palm tree on his ludwig medium walkers, i forgot to take a close up shot it was really well done.





The allied force started out strong but after my infantry decided to find the displeasure of the dice gods and his did not (put nearly 50 shots into a single heavy weapons team to finally kill it, he was rolling like a boss on saves) he turned the tide. as it is always with DUST the game was fast and brutal. surprising how much can happen in a couple turns of alternating activations.

I ended up with 1 character the command squad, command tank and and assault ranger squad left. where he had a heavy weapon team, while he had his (damaged) jagdwotan, 2 jagdloki walkers a heavy weapons team and a command squad with their tank giving him a clear victory.

Bit of a re-match

My friends AXIS army is growing, he is building up both a zombie army and a walker force. he played a mix of them tonight with a couple borrowed units from me to get him up to the 150 points level.



Our battle tonight was strangely enough not in the desert, but rather northern france, why the dreaded russian were present is anybodies guess.


The table




My army was overall shorter ranged and slower that most of his stuff, but very durable with most units having damage resilience.

The setup

SSU



AXIS NDAK



Having his zombies rush forward to meet me helped me quite a bit since i have several units with fire based very short ranged weapons that negated his saves.



Fortunately for me i was rolling really well and managed to cross the table without loosing to many units.




It even allowed me to get some units into close combat, though i think that will change now that he understands how the steel guards work.



MVP for the game was definitely the "anti-intantry squad or may be we should call it the super killy death squad



I tried to get him to play one of the mission scenarios from the DUST USA website, but he wanted to look over them first so perhaps we will get in one of those next week,

I do like the DUST models and picked up a few armies in the kickstarter and bits and pieces since then but not managed to get a game yet although did proxy some for a Konflict game.

That mech with the rail gun is sick. I love it. We played Dust over Zoom a few months ago. WIth some paper proxies for our opponents army units. A lot of work to prep, but went really well.

Nice to see a bit gaming support for this one.

I was one of thouse that jumped on the kickstarter. Eventualy i got everything i payed for but not suprisingly they are sitting unused in their shipping boxes someplace at the back of my attic, mainly cus i belived the game would end after the KS.
I remember at the time it was either dust tactics or konflict 47, and i did not like some of the mechanics in 47, so i landed on dust. Pre assembled minis was allso a plus.

When i get done with my other two projects, i might take a look at it from a collectors point. (i dont game and even if i would, some serious covid restrictions is going in my city)

Yeah, with the way the last year has been (10 months or so at this point since the rotary impeller got nailed) and the nature of the gaming community i can see why you are not getting games in for non-GW systems. a true shame considering how good the game is both rules wise and model wise.

I will continue to do my little part supporting it for as long as i can.


Speaking of for the model builders the mercenary scooter squads kits are the new items up for release

..and that is what made me choose that over konflict47.

Having never gotten into the game, can you quicly say what is the difference between dust and dust tactics? they booth at a glance looks identical but tactics appears to be the quick game version???

Are they both still available? Back when this was being distributed by another company (FFG?), IIRC one was more a board game with tiles and the other was more a tabletop minis game with actual inch/cm measurement though I can't tell you which was which as I only followed it (and still do) just to look at the cool models.

IIRC, my buddy said all the minis and vehicles are usable, you've just got to buy updated unit cards.

I picked K47 over Dust but that didn't stop me from picking up alot of FFG Dust vehicles and buildings for use in other games at the various closeout sales for. Built up the building kits buy Still got alot of unopened vehicles for "someday...."

Do any of the mentioned games (Dust in its various incarnations and K47) have custom vehicle construction rules to incorporate models from other sources?

Dust has an interesting history. Paulo first tried to sell it to rakham but they didn't want a WWII game so he scified it and made the short lived AT 43 game.

When he finally did get DUST made it was a board game made to be played on 4" tiles. when the MKII version of the game came out Andy Chambers (of GW fame) was hired to make the normal miniature TT rules. the main rulebook contains both sets of rules and this was retained with the 3rd version of the game-DUST 1947.

Keep in mind that DUST like infinity every model/unit has 2 actions that can be combined. so every movement/range distance is easily translated into 4" even though the cards are still printed for the tiles. so for example a weapon with a range of 6 tiles is 24" in regular non-tile play.

In my original post i have links to the free downloads for all the DUST 1947 cards/rules and all new model on the parent website also include the cards in their description.


warboss wrote:Do any of the mentioned games (Dust in its various incarnations and K47) have custom vehicle construction rules to incorporate models from other sources?



No, the game is so well balanced the company has no self build rules. the only thing they have is "dustified" special versions of real WWII vehicles like a panzer IV H with a laser cannon upgrade.





The only thing i see even close to that is the DUST war journals guys have a few of their own un-official dustified WWII vehicles(same download page i linked).

Not as such. I can't speak for DUST but I assume you'd be fine using custom vehicles on a counts as basis in K47. We used DUST units. What sort of vehicles were you looking at?
