Buddy has a huge collection. all factions and all the new Cuthulu stuff as well.

We do it very casually but often play 200 point games which is double the standard point games since its always pretty brutal and bloody.

Its really one of the better minis games out there over all as the turns are nice and quick.

Biggest issue I see is because no distributor will touch it with a 50 foot pole cause of the kickstarter issues its going to grow as fast as molasses. Really needs more factions since its all fictional anyways and near hardly historic.

Plus its harder to get good discounts on it.

About the factions, Dust have SSU, Allies, Axis, Mercenaries and now Chtullu maybe in the future the Vril. X-wing had 3 factions for six years and it is on first place in sales.

Rules is one of the reasons I want to play this game. Is not so complicated and you can play with squares or freely.

Distribution is the downside of this game.

Been playing for about a year. Very happy with the game.

As for Blocs/Factions, the Vrill is probably not sooner than 2019. Imperial Japanese Navy [IJN] are due Christmas 2018, with some units that will cross over into Axis (much as Kaori and Yukiko already do). Their national weapon will be Rail Guns, though no word yet on the rules for them.

Rules are available for free download on the Dust site, though be aware the 3D Rules in that book have been replaced with the Advanced Rules in Operation Kondor.

I'd hate to say it about such beautiful models, but the more involved Paolo is the worse off the game is. :(

As I slip though the widening maw in my new form, you will catch only a glimpse of my radiance before you are incinerated. Then, as tears of bubbling pitch stream down my face, my dark work will begin. I will open one of my six mouth, and I will sing the song that ends the earth.

So, as some one who knows very little about Dust beyond the old board games; why would I want to place this game as opposed to Konflict '47?

If you're sold on the Bolt Action/Warlord system, nothing. If you're not a fan of that system, a lot. Dust is a very quick game. I've participated in three tournaments so far, and only had two games go to the 1.5 hour time limit; usually, they only last 45 minutes - 1 hour. Casual games run longer than that, but that's mainly due to the BSing and geek talk going on throughout the match.

• Each units stat card gives you all the information you need to run that unit (though you might need to reference the rulebook for a couple special rules to get the full version).
• Models are available as unassembled kits, assembled and primered (the main availability), and prepainted.
• Models from the two previous tabletop editions are still perfectly valid (though stats have changed a bit, so you'll need the current stat cards). Means with a little luck, you can pick up a full army on Miniature Market dead cheap.
• Primarily gridded play, which speeds things greatly, though non-gridded is supported.
• No Nazis! Hitler was assassinated and the Nazis purged in 1943.
• The full rule book is a free download.

Your comparing scifi WW2 which there is a good bit of and its over all pretty generic to Star Wars, which is one of the most popular IPs in existence. Not really equal there so think factions is what can really help move the game to people who are not so keen on WW2 stuff.

As for DUST to Konflict. Konflict is good, bolt action is good, but its pretty slow. I don't like pinning things to death. DUST a 200 point game which is pretty huge runs 2 hours or so. Your standard games of 100 run an hour or less and lots dies. I will also take the plastic-esq models they use already primed over metal minis, even if Konflict has some amazing models.

We use non grid play and its easy. All numbers is just x4. Supports is very well

If you have friends playing Bolt Action and Konflict, keep playing with them. If you are new to weird WW2 games go for Dust.

I had a Dust walker taking dust like for two years because I did buy the wrong model for a business deal that went wrong. Now I will use that mini because the game look quick, fun and simple.

After the messy breakup with both FFG and Battlefront as well as the disaster of a kickstarter, I wouldn't touch the game with a 10 ft pole and I wasn't even a backer so have no grudge to bear personally (though I do sympathize with them). I think some of the models look very cool and would consider buying them for another game they could be used in but I'd never encourage anyone to invest in a game/company/personality (since they seem so intertwined) associated with so much drama.

I remember the drama days I use to read the forums and I myself never trusted the game when Fantasy Flight and Battlefront were behind the distribution. Those two companies were not doing a good job.

Now, three years later, I see the game continues and they even have a new faction and the mercenaries. This is the moment I decided to get into buying my minis.

I keep meaning to stat up my DUST models for Konflict as there are other players of that game at my club and usually proxy my Dust stuff.

However the firepower of the DUST units seems vastly more than Konflict equivalents from Infantry to walkers.

With more to come. Christmas will see the release of the next Bloc, the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), which will have some units that can crossover with the Axis Bloc. Also around Christmas, we'll see the release of the Operation Hellgate campaign book, along with more unit options for the Mythos Bloc.

Christmas 2019 will see the long awaited release of the Vrill, the alien species from which all the Weird War technology has been derived.

And along the way will be further additional units for all the current Blocs and Factions.

You can see Paolo's Upcoming Releases presentation here.
