A Commanding Presence 8
Dust Tactics NCO Command Squads are now on sale
Dust Tactics | Published 26 January 2012

We were in desperate need of help, then these guys showed up. They rushed to our position under a cloud of smoke, the mechanic called in an ammo dump for our walkers, and the medic fixed us up and got us right back into the fight. Their leadership gave us an edge in the fight, and that’s the only reason we won that day.

NCO Command Squads arrive on the battlefield with a variety of game-changing skills. Heavy Kommandotrupp and Corps Officers are both heavily armed and armored, and these men are ready to lead your Dust Tactics forces on the battlefield. These squads are also available in expertly painted Dust Tactics Premium line. Get your NCO Command Squads at your retailer, or on our webstore today, and win your next conflict with these rugged leaders.

Fully automatic

These commands squads have abilities that activate automatically when used, meaning you no longer have to roll a success to activate skill. Although the abilities of the NCO Command Squads are not as potent as their armor 2 brethren, the added reliability more than makes up for that shortcoming.

Use the familiar Artillery Strike, Makeshift Repair, or Get Up, It Ain’t That Bad skills, or use the brand new Smoke Mortars, Ammo Dump, or Stimulant Kit skills to give your soldiers an edge in the thick of battle. You can even use the new NCO Command Squad in combination with your Command Squads to create all kinds of stimulating new strategies.

Additionally, these squads are capable of holding their own in any firefight. The Corps Officers are armed with two Victory machine guns, a Flamethrower, and Rocket Punches, giving this unit enough muscle to deal with any opponent. The Heavy Kommandotrupp has strong anti-infantry capability with two MG44 zweis and a single Fliegerfaust. When a situation calls for more firepower, these NCO Command Squads are the perfect answer.

Swing the balance of the battle in your favor by adding a Heavy Kommandotropp or Corps Officers NCO Command squad to your Dust Tactics army. Read our guest preview by Ron Cover for advice on how to use these valuable squads, and order your reinforcements from our webstore, or get them from your local retailer. The NCO Command Squads are also available in the professionally painted Dust Tactics Premium line. To find out more about the premium versions of these squads, read the Under New Management article.

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 text is wrong, Field Mechanic is not an ability, it's the guy, his new ability is Ammo Dump.

 Admin's note: You are correct. The text has been updated.
