DUST, anyone play this?

Postby Grizzly » Wed Nov 02, 2011 9:54 am

Hey all,

Been looking at he DUST models line and really like the sculpts and considering trying the game out. Wanted to know if any of my fellow B-towners play and if so what is the game like? Worth putting an army together or just collect and paint the cool models?

I hear it's pretty simple... Nice models though.

The old rules are available online, if you look around.

I don't know if the new/revised set is out yet.

Good day,

The revised set is out and includes a different set of models from the original set.

You can still get the original set on eBay and possible other online retailers.

I haven't played but have read through the rules (the revised rules are available on Fantasy Flight's web site) and don't really like the system all that much - the movement system is way to constricting for me.

I actually have both the original and revised sets (with the card set to update the original set to the new system) and am very seriously contemplating getting rid of them. The minis are nice but I have to much on my plate and don't think I'll ever play.

Just my thought and musings.

Thank you,

As it stands its very similar to q light at 43 or warmachine. I really like it as it plays in under an hour. Presumably the new tabletop dust warfare (which uses the same models) will make it closer in complexity to standard tabletop games.

I'm eager to see the release of the wargame rules. The models are very nice, but the boardgame rules don't do it for me.
