Dust Tactics | Published 01 August 2011

Two divisions of Hell Boys hustled down the plank off their landing craft. Deployed to the east side of the docks, they were to sweep behind the Axis walkers and launch a surgical strike on Axis command. However, Lara Walter and her Heavy Flak Grenadiers had surprises of their own in store for any Allies who sought to engage them…

Good job. But why isn't it mentioned anywhere in this book that Artillery weapons ignore all kinds of cover?

And what about the old restriction against using artillery weapons inside buildings, is it gone?

@Grodzilla, I love those gorillas too! Hope to get at least 3 units of those once they are available in my country :)


@UniversalHead, some items from the FAQ are in the revised rulebook. But some aren't. The FAQ serves a different purpose. Rather than teaching the rules of the game, it clarifies those tricky situations that may arise as players play the game more. And since FFG already stated that this is a living document, it will be continuously updated as more tricky situations arise during gameplay that may not be adequately addressed in the rulebook..

Question - does this include stuff in the recent FAQ?

I noticed in the rule book they talk about Aircraft, helicopters and air borne units.  I think I'm going to be spending a lot of money on this game.  I hope there are more gorillas, I love those guys.

Just finished reading thru the new rulebook, and I must say.... it is sooo much better than the original. There are more and clearer examples. The rules are worded better, and the diagrams, with all those green and red arrows and corner symbols, are ingeniously annotated to augment the explanation of the rules. And best of all, new rules introduced in the two campaign expansions are also included and further clarified. There's even a quick reference chart at the end of the rulebook. Good job, FFG. I strongly recommend all players to use this rulebook instead of the original one.
