Greetings


Since there is no dedicated DUST section on DAKKA much like the battletech thread this is for everything DUST 1947 related.

First the resources

The parent company site

https://dustgame.com/

DUST -USA
US distributors

https://www.dustusa.net/

Ammo drop-ITALY

https://ammodrop.eu/category/news-en/?lang=en


Dust war journals

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



A nice batrep channel for DUST (and several other systems)

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLz_zcAzLYrdeQ7E5jTI2tCyED4VMAuSW4



I will be posting batreps from time to time and any major additions as well as answering any questions that may come up.

DISCLAIMER-i know all about the bad kickstarter episode, that was a long time ago in gaming terms but many players are still salty about it. that is not something i care about or intend to discuss here.

The game itself is fantastic, the miniatures are top rate and the rules are some of the best in the industry for an alternating activation system. overall the game is great fun to play and well balanced (everything has a counter). If you prefer the board game version or the 3d terrain version of the game(i prefer the latter as a veteran gamer) all are welcome here it is only a slight change in the measuring system for the most part anyway.


Additional note: much like the L5R CCG, DUST has a global war campaign system where players can play monthly scenarios and post them to the DUST site so that their battles directly change the course of the story.

My current armies i will be using for future battles in the 150 point+ range (or smaller as need be)

Nice one, Dust needs some more love on here, picked up a starter and added some extra bits a few years ago but sadly the games dead here in the uk.

The models aren’t even on sale here anymore, it’s a shame really as loved the Walker kits. Thinking I might use some of the walkers with my bolt action stuff just for fun.

Good to see someone enjoying the game and setting though.

Without good promotion, usually among gamers, no system ever survives. it gets drowned out by GW or other well known IPs.

It was the same when infinity first started. somebody taught me the game and i in turn promoted it to others. now there are loads of players in my area.

Stepping over that ledge of spending more money on another system, also tends to hold people back. many people are a 1 or 2 system gamer. i was the same way up till about 6th ed. i had battletech and 40K.. there is still an active group at our store that plays FOW exclusively.

6th ed killed 40K in my area so i branched out for the sake of variety as gaming is now my main hobby. i now have minis and rules to play close to 10 different systems from b5 wars to monster apocalypse. each one has it's own feel to keep me interested.

Fortunately most of them are far cheaper than 40K

The topic at hand-it is such a great game it needs the love. alot of people like you bought the kits because they are great looking but don't or have never actually played the game.

Ah it all went down here after the trouble they had with battlefront. That pretty much killed it straight away over here. Shame as I really enjoyed playing tactics.

Like I said though il use them in bolt action for fun.

DUST 1947 is doing so much better without Battle-Farce at the helm.

I played 4 games of this system over the weekend. A local store just started carrying it, and the game is really taking off here in Central California.

We started all the way back with the original Dust Tactics, then took a long pause. Feels good to see they have sharpened and deepened the rules to a fine edge.

It is also that they really care about the game rules and try to fix errors, it reminds me that i forgot the official warfactory youtube channel. where they have actually addressed thing like balancing rules.

I picked up two of the smaller starter forces at Origins last year (Luftwaffe and IJN), I have been able to generate zero interest in even demoing the game my local community other than inquiries as to whether the mechs are suitable for use in Konflikt 47. It seems most people view the IP as toxic after the FFG and Battlefront fiascos

That is yet another reason for player promotion. it is weird since the game is huge in some parts of the world like Poland.

I run demos as well. it has generated some interest in my area though. once they expand the IJN line one of the guys is interested in building a force.

Having a Store with an account to directly order anything we want has been immensely helpful. Now our new players are as excited as the old returning ones.

Excellent! did you get the box set?

One of the guys at the shop was interested in playing the axis until he found out you could do lovecraft monsters and he was sold.


I think we have outdone the tyranids in that department.


Make sure to post up some battle pics!

On a 4X6 table i have found that 150-200 points is a good sized game with decent amounts of terrain.


I am not sure how your terrain situation is, but last year i picked up a large amount of the german hand painted finished terrain from ESLO hobby via noble knight games. looks great with DUST minis.

I have several box sets of Mythos ,but I do not like some of their models -- enough to prevent me from a highly effective force. My main faction is PLA.

I used to play Dust back in the day, so we have killer flat tile terrain like the surfaced submarine and the subway / underground tunnel staircases.
Plus lots more. I'll check out Eslo hobbies tho!

I will get some pics of the next battle posted for sure, we did not take many last weekend. Too busy annihilating one another!

What factions do all of you play?

Well obviously my armies are posted


this is ESLO terrain

everything in the pic is ESLO except the barn on the right hand side (it belongs to the store but it fit the theme).

Eslo terrain looks fairly cool. I'll bookmark that.

Here's one of my PLA heroes in action.

Not that familiar with the PLA, but our dedicated SSU player so wants to get commissar Poon to add to his Russian force.



I want another hero box to come out with gregor&izzy in it since they are stuck in the desert scorpions command box now, and i don't need more brits, and he is US marines why is he in there?

Yes Commissar Poon is beastly.

Oh I wonder if you can get Gregoy + Izzy on the second hand market? Or would that cost too much?
