|Two New Dust Tactics Squads Have Arrived
The Allied Grim Reapers and Axis Gorillas are now on sale
|Dust Tactics | Published 21 July 2011|
Allied soldiers had fallen back from Scapa’s Flow waterfront and established a line of defense along a row of warehouses. Sweat ran down their backs in the chill morning air. From their positions, the men heard the whistle and crack of artillery fire, but though they knew the Axis were coming, they couldn’t see their enemy through the fog. “What is that?” a private asked, pointing and waving toward the docks. Four shapes raced at them through the mist, smaller than walkers, but too large to be human…
The Axis Gorillas and Allied Grim Reapers have arrived! Now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore, these heavily armored squads represent the newest scientific advances in the world of Dust Tactics.
Blutkreuz Korps experimentation
While experimentating with synthesized drugs on the gorilla, Markus, the Axis Blutkreuz Korps managed to spark his simian intellect, raising his mental capacity to unknown levels. Realizing the combat value of trained “war gorillas,” the Blutkreuz Korps developed more of these unusual soldiers and outfitted them with steel panzer gloves, brutally effective weapons in close combat.
The Axis Gorillas may be limited in number, but their tough natural armor and savage speed allow them to rush into combat. Once they engage their foes, their awesome strength and brutal panzer gloves can devastate infantry and walkers alike!
These gorillas are both intelligent and temperamental. Upset by the poor treatment they receive from the Axis, they will only follow a hero with the Blutkreuz Ape skill.
As the battle of Scapa Flow escalates, ASOCOM unveils its newest technology. The Grim Reapers sport heavily armored battle suits that allow them to Jump over buildings to find ideal positions from which to rain death upon enemy squads with their dual Victory MGs.
Aided by their battle suits, the Grim Reapers race across the battlefield at a movement of two. Not only are they one of the most heavily armored squads available, but they’re one of the most mobile. The Grim Reapers live up to their name in the streets of Scapa Flow as they bound over buildings to hunt down Axis forces and eliminate them.
Turn the tide of battle
As the battle heats up in Scapa Flow, Allied and Axis forces seek every advantage they can find to win the day. Call in the reinforcements with the Axis Gorillas or Allied Grim Reapers!
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.
The Apes are really cool and the Reapers not far behind ... time to get down to painting.
Thank you Peacekeeper_b, but i'm in Italy and they will not ship free of charge here :)
moreover in Italy the coversion is 15$ -> 15€, so i just hope this game will not become really expansive like some others miniature games 'cause i like it so much!
Brex. You can get them from Miniature Market dot com for around $9.50. If you order $75 worth of stuff in one shot you get shipping free. So gorillas, the revised core set and a few other sets and you are golden.
Hmmmmmm, only 3 mins still 14,95$?
My local store ordered them for me and they arrived on Friday with their normal shipment. We tried them both out today...talk about beasts for Axis and Allies. I need to get more with how many are getting rolled with these squads now, I really wish they sold the dice alone.
Already picked up mine up at my local game store and have them painted. Dont know if I can say this on here but both Miniature Market and Cool Stuff have them for sale online. Cool Stuff had them yesterday.
Hmmm... Why is it everywhere I go still has them down as a pre-order? Plus the FFG Shop only has the Gorillas available.
Yiippeee! Now my Markus can have some company :) What a bunch of lovable gorillas!
Awesome, gonna run to the store ASAP!
