The year is 1947. The war that started eight years ago when Germany invaded Poland isn’t over. Rather, the conflict has spread worldwide, and but a handful of countries cling to relative neutrality. Throughout the world, three major superpowers fight to claim exclusive control over a revolutionary source of power. Elite troops and massive combat robots wage violent battles to claim this energy source as their own while denying it to their enemies... and this is the story of such a battle.
Dust Tactics, a tactical miniatures board game set in an engrossing war-ravaged world, is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore!
With over 30 highly detailed miniatures, 9 double-sided terrain boards, 12 custom dice, unit cards, a variety of terrain, and plastic scenery, Dust Tactics delivers everything you need to play the game. One of the most eye-catching features of Dust Tactics is the quality of the miniatures. Each miniature is a unique sculpt depicting a type of the soldiers or machine of war, which makes tracking your troops an easy, enjoyable, and engrossing experience.
From the combat robots – enormous vehicles of war with a fearsome destructive capacity – to the ranks of individual soldiers, the level of detail on each miniature is exquisite. Each figure has its own individual character and feel, standing out from the other members of its unit. This makes tracking certain members of a given unit much easier. In addition, each miniature is sculpted to reflect the type of equipment they carry. The masked recon grenadiers, rugged combat rangers, and ruthless commanders take on a life of their own, drawing players into a rich and violent world at war.
Dust Tactics comes complete with easy-to-follow rules as well as a campaign book entitled Operation: Blue Thunder. This book features eight individual scenarios linked together by an overarching narrative. In addition to the provided scenarios, Dust Tactics also provides rules on how to make your own battlefields and scenarios.

Dust Tactics is a tactical miniatures game of brutal combat for 2-4 players. Based on the popular universe created by artist Paolo Parente, Dust Tactics presents an alternate 1940s reality in which alien technology fuels gigantic machines of war, and the world's superpowers clash over rare mineral deposits that could ultimately decide the outcome of WWII.
I just got the game and can NOT wait for the full miniature [not on the board] rules set...!!!!
OMG.....Love the Mech's......will be playing tommorrow for sure.....can't wait for future expansions
Bought it today, looks freakin' awesome so far.
No 2nd thoughts about it for me, great miniatures based on a great comic and storyline with what im sure will be great rules and future components.
Nice, finally released! I'm still on the fence wether or not to jump into this one given the other gamesystems I follow. But the limited collectability and the selfcontainment of the system + setting give it a great appeal.
