Welcome to the new Bartertown.com!

Our new server is much faster, and we're very excited to hear what you think about the updates.

Server/Software Updates:
  • Operating System: - CentOS 5 to CentOS 7
  • phpBB - (forum software) 3.0.12 to 3.2.0
  • Server Hardware - We're now on an entirely new, dedicated server with twice the RAM and a Solid State Drive

Forum Changes:
  • RULES - Are now linked in the hotbar at the very top of the page, so they're easy to find. Also, you don't have any excuse for not reading them.
  • ITL Trade Ref System - Also located in the hotbar up top. If you don't see them immediately,
    check under the Quick Links menu.
  • GW products have been condensed by genre. No more vacant, empty sub-forums dedicated to specialist games - those now belong in the GW Fantasy and Futuristic categories. Read the descriptions if you aren't sure where to post.
  • Collapse-able Sections - An awesome extension of the updated board, you can now collapse the categories you don't care about to make the forum smaller.
  • Announcements - Like this one! Did you know we were going down for maintenance and we had updates scheduled? Now you'll definitely be in the loop on future things that impact the site.
All the awesomeness aside, there may be bugs or issues that crop up as we settle in. Please check/post here about issues or if you have questions.

DUST, anyone play this?

Anything else.. come on in, and pull up a seat.

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,

If you don't have your Location listed in your User Control Panel, why not take a second and update it? It will let your trading partners know where you are from the beginning.

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.
