Little demo game tonight.

Had a new player at the FLGS who was interested in learning, so we threw down a quick death match 150 point axis VS allies battle

I let him run my standard heavy ranger force and i countered it with a mix of my usual axis laser force as well as an airborne unit (that failed to get hit second action after jumping in and got promptly waxed before he could fire the guided missile)








A fun battle, lots of stuff died and he enjoyed the game.

Looks good.
On the topic of superheavys, kinda sad the IJN K-JP12 versions was limited edition those two realy fit the range.....

edit, oh btw, i finaly bothered to spend some time in the cold closet and after about 20 mins i found the box. (and it aint small...)
It is packed to the rim of the old tactics kickstarter. I know the two army boxes are premium products, but the rest, cant remember if they are or just the basic primed stuff. Guess i will find out

Question for you dust-heads. What's the demand like for FFG era Dust kits? Have cards been released to allow them to be used in the current edition?

I'm looking at the NIB stuff I have taking up space that I purchased back in the day for use in my Mech Attack games I'm thinking I might never get around to using it and maybe I should let some of it go.

The kits are pretty much the same with 3 levels of modeling-full kits/primed+ assembled/ factory painted premium.

the change over from FFG has not really seen any difference in the actual kit quality. as for the cards-unlike 40K everything is still in use in the current edition and the cards are free to download PDFs (links in my first post)

If you have some of the named characters they can be pretty hard to find. i am still trying to get ahold of "tom" or "gregor&izzy" i want them in premium but at this point i will take what i can find as tom is currently not in production and gregor&izzy are only available in the desert scorpions box set that i do not need.

Thanks!
I may put a few up for sale and see how they do. Good to know they're still playable and cards are available.

Regarding the figs you're looking for, I don't think I have any characters. Except for the Tenement Buildings and Quonset Huts (which I put to good use: https://www.chicagoskirmishwargames.com/blog/2015/01/fully-painted-dust-tactics-warzone/
https://www.chicagoskirmishwargames.com/blog/2015/06/dust-tenements-mantic-battlezones/ ), nearly all the stuff I bought was vehicles.

Eilif that is a cool use of the huts. I have a box and i've been intimidated thinking of painting them. I'm just not quite sure what will look good.
We don't have those buildings anymore, but that is a cool look you've attained.

PS-their forums got hacked it is a bad link DO NOT CLICK ON IT!




more confusions, this time allied tank models:
conversion kits:
-the kit image for the m26 pershing II dont match with the unit card image, is the unit card image from an older kit and the current conversion is a newer kit? (kitis basicly just the weapons, but the pdf card shows a completely different turret)
-a conversion kit exists for the sherman, but no unit card in your allied unit card link, yet there seems to be a unit card included in the sherman kit when i look at it. Is the model not added for 1947 or did they forget to add the unit card to the download file?

i said do not click the link to their FORUMS on the page as that link is no longer viable.

secondly i think you may be confusing the fact that some units come with multiple weapon options/turrets.

T he M26, M10 and the bulldog heavy walker can mount a phaser cannon or a 6 gun recoilless rifle system. the cards are there for each of them in the linked PDF. not sure which weapon system you are referencing.

Then it is simply a communication error, english aint primary language in norway. How you typed it, made it look as if the link you posted was faulty and hacked.

When it comes to allied tracked tanks, this is my confusion.

so what i was refering to are these two:
https://ammodrop.eu/prodotto/da035-m4a3e8-p-hvss-conversion-set/?lang=en
https://ammodrop.eu/prodotto/da034-super-pershing-ii-conversion-set/?lang=en


For the sherman, i find no card in the pdf, unless the wolverine is supposed to be its model, but then again the wolverine is a M10 tank destroyer IRL, not a medium tank like the sherman is. ofc in terms of rules i guess the game dont seperate a medium tank and a tank destroyer, but visualy it is a big difference. yet in the kit, it appear as if a stat card printed in 2019 is included.........,but it is not in the pdf, and i find no conversion kits for the wolverine traked tank.........................

For the pershing, the turrets on the stat card image in the pdf looks like it comes from the M5 heavy walker model, yet the kit in the link, is just a cannon swap, not a complete turret, so where did they get thouse pershing turrets from??, and where did they get the sixk shooter turet wep for the pershing III????
And i cant find a complete dust model of the sherman or pershing either, other then the elite section on the main dust site https://dustgame.com/product-category/dust-elite-exclusives/ and they are just cannon swaps.............................

To me, it looks as if they are opperating with two different pershing models, one official and two custom kitbashes................

Bottom line is, i want to add the sherman to my collection, but if it is not a legal model due to no card in the pdf section, then i have to go for the pershing. (same wep, higer pointcost and health)
Since there is no card for the sherman i dont know how it looks outside of the existing conversion kit image. For the pershing i would rather have it look like the pdf card image, then a simple cannon barrel swap, so kitbash????


This is frustrating!! (and yes, i get major stuck on pointless details, a character flaw due to my personality disorders)

Those links are for the "dustified" kits

you buy the tamiya model kit from a model shop and then buy the DUST upgrade kit to make it a DUST model with DUST weapons and the card comes with the upgrade conversion kit.

I understand you want to help me and thanks for finding the stat card pdfs, but we have big communication problems in regards to the tanks, that there is no solution to.

I will send an email to the dust site, hoping they can shed some light on this.

I think you two are talking around eachother a bit (and by you two I mostly mean aphyon).

FrozenDwarf understands that the Pershing II and Sherman II are conversion/upgrade kits added onto tamiya kits.

FrozenDwarf cannot find a unit card for the Sherman II even though theres a conversion kit for it. He wants to add the Sherman II, but since he can't find rules for it he can't. FrozenDwarf has a unit card for the Pershing II, so hes going to add that instead. He has speculated that maybe the Wolverine unit card is meant to be the Sherman unit card, because that has a unit card but no model, whereas the Sherman II has a model but no unit card - in short he theorizes that someone at Dust Studio fethed something up and theres a name/product mismatch here.

FrozenDwarf has a unit card for the Pershing II and found the conversion kit for it, so he wants to add that instead since theres less confusion surrounding it. HOWEVER, the appearance of the Pershing II on the unit card does not match the appearance of the Pershing II on the conversion kit. The Pershing II on the unit card has an entirely different turret, whereas the Pershing II in the conversion kit is just a barrel swap using the existing Tamiya turret. He understands that there are different weapon options included, but that does not address the difference in the turret itself. He wants the DUST style turret with DUST weapons, rather than the Tamiya style turret with DUST weapons.

FrozenDwarf is asking for clarification on the conversion kit that matches the Pershing II unit card, i.e. the one that has a completely different turret, as opposed to just a barrel swap on the Tamiya turret. He is speculating that the one on the unit card was a homemade kitbash, or that it might be an outdated/out of production version of the conversion kit that is no longer available, or that it might have at one point been a standalone kit that was discontinued in favor of the conversion kit.

I hope that clears up the confusion.

Honestly DUST is being horribly mismanaged from a business standpoint. It seems they have four "official" websites (dustusa, warfactory, ammodrop, dustgame) depending on the region, and none of them seem to have matching or complete product listings. There are kits that appear on one site but not the others, or on some sites but not all. Take the IJN Steel Samurai for example - not available on DustUSA, available on DustGame as a Collectors Edition and Elite Edition (whatever that means), available on AmmoDrop as a "Kallamity Edition" (whatever that means), hot available on Warfactory.

Completely unhelpful.

EDIT - cleared up the language, something about my work network/firewall feths up my posts and scrambles them. Sorry!

The link he gave was pretty clear in english at least- from the ammo drop site.



This set includes all the necessary parts to assemble a M4A3E8 (P) HVSS, based on the Tamiya 1/48 M4A3E8 Tank. It includes all the weapons and the main’s gun mantle, as well as a unit card. Please note that this set does not include the Tamiya kit.


It appears the sherman card was made after that PDF was released so it would not appear there like many of the newer kits do not.

The appearance of the kit in the original PDF card is the tamiya pershing kit with the entire bulldog kit turrets placed on it.

Perhaps it was made before they produced a conversion turret kit for the actual tamiya model?

Yes, we are now on the same page, pdf stat card image is a kitbash with a static display model kit pershing hull, and dust walker turret.
I should get a reply from dust by the end of the week on this matter too.


edit'
that beeing said, i read thru the core rulebook, and one thing i dont quite understand, is the infantry armor value just a scale for transportation, or is it some advanced rule for it that i missed?
If there is not, it kinda seems odd to me that an armor 3 or 4 heavy infantry is just as fragile as an armor 1, aka 1 life per model.

The axis



The SSU



I was busy playing my own games, so i just helped set this one up. i snapped a few more in between pics but apparently stalingrad still is stalingrad for the german army. as in not a victory.
