Staff Armies: Victor's Lasers of Doom! Part 2


This week, in anticipation of his epic grudge match with Chris Townley, Victor shows off his finished Laser army. It is impressive to see how Victor’s army has progressed. From his walkers to his infantry, Victor’s style lends itself nicely to Dust models.

With his affinity for Lasers, it is hard to miss what the underlining theme of Victor’s army is. His mighty Wotan is death incarnate, finely attuned to destroy enemy armour from afar. The Wotan is not a walker be trifled with lightly. 

See the fruit of Victor's toils here...

Axis Blutkreuz Korps Platoon

For the Allied and SSU soldiers that have met them in combat over the years, the soldiers of the Blutkreuz Korps are a dreaded sight indeed. Under the leadership of Generalmajor Sigrid von Thaler, the Blutkreuz have taken the application of VK technology far beyond the imaginings of any Allied or SSU scientist. To von Thaler though, the end justifies the means, and the world must be conquered if it is to be saved.

Check out the Blutkreuz Platoon here..

SSU KV-47 Wolfpack

The Soviet KV-47 series of walkers is the very first design ever developed outside of a German facility. The SSU needed an cheap and rugged, yet powerful machine to counter the new threat posed by the Axis walkers. The KV-47 has proved a great success, and is now a staple of SSU combat forces everywhere. In typical SSU fashion, the KV-47 is deployed en masse to overwhelm the opposition. These ‘wolfpacks’, as they have been nicknamed, have learned how to take on the heaviest opposition and survive to fight another day.

Dust Tactic: Battlefield Rules

This week we are giving you the Dust Tactics: Battlefield rules. Whilst being a true translation of Dust Tactics to a more traditional tabletop wargame, Battlefield does have some elements in common with Warfare.

Battlefield uses the same core rules and cards as Tactics so the transition from grids to tabletop is straight forward. Warfare players will find that there are some aspects to Battlefield that they will recognise, most notably the Suppression and Platoon rules.

Make sure to check back at the end of the week as we will be posting up some Battlefield missions and Platoons.
