|Dust Tactics | Published 04 March 2011|
The world is broken and the war is far from over. Every battle, won or lost, weighs on you. But many battles await to be fought. You muster your strength, activate your units, and prepare for the next. Weary as you are, a thrill runs through you. What will tomorrow bring?
Revised Tournament Rules Available
The latest version of the Dust Tactics Tournament Rules can be downloaded now from the Dust Tactics support page.
Last month we presented our very first set of Dust Tactics Tournament Rules. They included recommendations for players and Tournament Organizers, included a tracking sheet for participants, and introduced a fresh set of official army point costs for all the units available to date. Players were thrilled by the new possibilities, and the more competitive players stepped up to build new unique armies using our official army point costs.
Today, we're unveiling the army point values for several new units, including both new Artillery walkers "Steel Rain" and "Lothar," as well as the new heroes that appear in Operation: Cyclone – Rosie and Manfred.
You'll also find our brand new Army Planning Sheets on the support page that will make it easy to begin brainstorming all new army builds, whether you're an Axis or Allied player.
Arriving In Stores Soon
The new units mentioned above should start arriving at your local retail stores next week.
Operation: Cyclone introduces two new heroes, comes with all new Scenarios that begin with an icy beach landing and lead deep into a Vk mine, until you reach the secret submarine harbor. It includes a set of new, unique tiles for landing craft and other terrain that will have you playing on larger, more challenging maps, plus it introduces rules for Artillery!
Download the PDF rulebook for Operation: Cyclone to learn the ins and outs of artillery fire, and you'll be ready to make use of both the Axis and Allied Medium Walkers that also land in stores next week. Each unit box includes a single medium walker body, with multiple weapon load-outs that allow you to build any of the core set walkers, including these new and deadly artillery weapons!
There's not much time - get your battle plans ready for a new fight is about to begin!
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.
