Bonus V2 Tactics Cards!

Andrew shares some more V2 Cards and talks about the units he is thinking about adding to his Dust collection.   

Check out Andrew bonus card picks here...
KONIGSLUTHER (D300)  Ludwig (D300)

The recognizable shape of Axis Medium Panzer Walkers provokes fear amongst enemy soldiers.

The PzKpfL II-B Ludwig replaces the 5cm Flak 43 guns of the Luther with a pair of 8.8cm tank cannons adapted from obsolete Tiger tanks. Combined with a new sighting array, the Ludwig punches well above its weight against SSU tanks.

Check out the Ludwig spotlight here...
Lothar (D301)

The Pz. KpfL. II-D Lothar provokes fear in any soldier who sees it. It carries a formidable armament of Nebelwerfer missile-launchers on each arm, and can deliver a deluge of fire to fill the battlefield with destruction. The missile racks are big enough to carry an incredible number of rockets, and can strike from great distances on the battlefield.

Steel Rain (DT502)

The Medium Combat Walker M2-F, or Steel Rain, is a mobile dispenser of mass destruction. Although its mighty rockets don’t leave any space to carry a .50 cal AA MG, its impressive 4.2’’ rockets can set sizable areas of the battlefield aflame and annihilate the enemy, and its massive mortar fires explosive shells weighing 20 kilos each!

Check out the Steal Rain here...


Pounder (D502)

Pounder (D500)  Mickey/Hotdog (D500)

Initially the Hotdog Medium Combat Walker was designed to support the howitzer armed Mickey Combat Walkers with a deadly Napalm thrower.

In practice both walkers serve independantly of each other and the cover-defeating qualities of the napalm thrower have proved essential. 

As a result the M2-B Hotdogs have become a common sight on all Allied fronts

 Pounder (D501) Pounder (D501)

In spite of the skeptics, who though the M2 chassis wouldn’t be able to withstand the recoil of a larger gun, the Allied designers have managed to successfully mate a high velocity 17 pounder anti-tank gun to the M2.

The resulting Pounder gives the Allies a hard hitting, highly manoeuvrable walker that will swing the tide of any battle they are involved in.

Check the Pounder out here...
Axis Zombies (D504)

Despite their simple minds, these undead soldiers aid the Blutkreuz Korps by focusing on only one objective, annihilating the enemy. Allied commanders will need to adapt quickly to these brutal enemies as they are fast, mindlessly fearless, and sometimes appear impervious to gunfire.

Check Axis Zombies out here...
Axis Zombies (D304)
KONIGSLUTHER (D303) Konigsluther (D503)

With its dual 17.3 cm FpK, the Königsluther is a formidable weapon, easily among the most fearsome in the war. 

The heaviest variant of the Luther, the Königsluther sometimes wins battles even before firing its first shot; so terrifying is its raw firepower that many enemy tank commanders simply refuse to fight it without support from their mightiest walkers.
