Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of two exciting new expansions for Dust Tactics, the tactical miniatures board game of explosive battlefield combat! With The Boss, an Allied Rangers Command Squad, or Kommandotrupp, an Axis Sturmgrenadiere Command Squad, you’ll gain a new level of control over your Dust Tactics forces.
Both The Boss and Kommandotrupp have the Command Squad ability, making them indispensable in overseeing your other forces. Their exceptional motivational skills even allow them to reactivate units that you’ve already used! What’s more, both squads have the Artillery Strike ability, meaning they can serve as spotters for any friendly tank armed with Artillery (as described in the Artillery rules in the Operation Cyclone Campaign Expansion)!
The Boss is a squad of Allied officers, and they’re on the battlefield to ensure that every order is perfectly executed. Like other Rangers, the Allied Command is equipped with assault rifles and a machine gun, but their real strength lies in their ability to coordinate the attacks of other units. Known for its powerful leadership capability, this unit is a high-priority target that must be protected at all costs. But used wisely, they’ll tip the balance in your favor!
For the Axis forces, Kommandotrupp is a special unit of field officers whose skills are invaluable. They too are equipped with assault rifles and a machine gun, and like their Allied counterparts, their presence on the battlefield can change the entire course of battle. A wise general should take care to protect these experienced officers.
Keep watching in the coming weeks for more on these versatile squads, including an announcement for premium painted versions, as well as how they can be used to maximum effect along with the recently announced walker expansions and Operation Cyclone Campaign Expansion!
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.
Havnt played the game but want to. But these minis look very.......at-43 ish
Now THIS is what I have been hoping to see! The rules for these guys are in the base game, and they are interesting units with individual strengths.
I am going to be snatching these guys up as soon as they are available!
It's great that FFG is supporting DT - the game is going to get much more depth thanks to such releases.
Didn't take long for FFG to start promoting DT add-on products.
The minis for the game are well done, though not a fan of the gameplay.
