Paolo Parente’s DUST gets two new starter sets this week in the form of both the Mercenary Starter Set – Taskforce Tanya and the Blutkruez Starter Set – Kampfgruppe Von Stein. You can check both of them out below, each coming with a walker and much more besides…
The first of these boxed sets to take a look at is Taskforce Tanya which comes with the hero, Tanya, five Sisters of Demolition and one Wrecker Walker. You also get dice, rulebook, terrain tiles and a few other bits and pieces to help round off the set as a complete package.
I think this was one of the most popular sets to come out of the Kickstarter and you can see why. The models are looking fantastic and I love the fact that Tanya’s soldiers are lugging around the biggest guns possible. I like that the gunner has taken the time to leave her walker too just to mow some poor unfortunate chap down with the machine gun.
The Undead Walk
As a foil to the Mercenaries we have the Blutkreuz Starter Set under the command of Frank Von Stein.Just like before you also get a squad in the box, five Braineaters, and then a walker too which is the Heinrich. As with Tanya there are new tiles, dice, a little rulebook and more too.
With the new way in which DUST is handling the supply of their product to customers you can also get these done in the ‘Babylon Pattern’ paint schemes. This effectively doubles the price of the boxed set but you get the models looking JUST like they do on the front cover of the box rather than just primed.
We’re yet to actually see someones set painted up to match Vincent Fontaine’s work but we’re assured that that is exactly what it looks like when you open the box. Pretty neat.
What do you think?
