The Allies have their heavy troopers too… but they have parachutes and a dangerous reputation!
Quite big looking guys. Is their scale slightly larger than 40k or is it that they are in a style of power armour? Also to be honest I am more of a fan of models coming in multible parts. I enjoy spending the time putting them together and if you are any good it doesn’t take that long.
I feel they tend to be more effective in Dust Warfare than Dust Tactics, but that could be because i play warfare more, mind you Its surprising how often you end up needing that rocket punch, especially on terrain heavy boards.
@redshane yeah they are in a larger scale than 40k. compared to a marine in power armour the bog standard infantry man is probably a good 3-4mm (est) taller and the red devils a good 8-10mm (est). dont play 40k anymore so i didnt have a termy handy to compare
Overall they look nice, but honestly, for me the fact that they are pre-assembled / pre-basecoated is a feel let down. I like building and painting my toy soldiers =P. Also, the fact that all have the same face…..creepy.
The models for Dust aren’t as much of a draw in terms of pure ‘hobby-goodness’ as GW and other manufacturers, but they are nicely made and can still be shown some TLC with a brush. In fact, they appeal to me as I am busy painting models for other games, but don’t feel bad about fielding models in Dust Warfare that haven’t yet been painted: they are still the right colour for the army. Plus, the game itself is very good. The Reaction and Suppression mechanics works really well.
Definitely a good second game for those with clogged-up paint stations.
Im getting on a bit bit now, eyesight not as good as it used to be so any game that does some of the work for me already has my vote. Im also an ex gw gameplayer and remember Andy Chambers (the author of DUST warfare) from his days at GW, so that was another tick in the DUST box. The game itself is very good too, with a few mechanics “adapted” from other games, and i would highly reccomend trying the game if you get the chance (for the games sake rather than the hobby side, although i have seen a few cooly converted minis), in fact the only downside for me is that there is a fair bit of warping on the plastic weapons, which can be a fair pain to re-straighten (boiling water to iced water baths dont always work permnantly) but i suppose if you have more patience than me you could always swap the weapons out for a harder plastic…but im now starting to ramble so i will just say this, DUST warfare is a cracking little game
