Epic Staff Battles: Chris vs. Victor Part 1!

 

The night fades, as the sound of knives against sharpeners begins to chirp like unbidden crickets in the dawn. Soon an orchestra of hydraulics and VK-powered walkers and troops sound from the distant hills, accompanied by the high-pitched shrill of lasers powering up from the ruined city. Life in this forsaken landscape will clash and die in an epic battle of wills as Chris and Victor unleash hell upon this field of battle.

Get Into Dust Tactics: SSU

The Sino-Soviet Union was forged by war and baptised in the blood of the workers and peasants who died by the million to free their brothers from the chains of capitalist enslavement. No other Bloc has endured as much punishment, suffered as many casualties, nor lost as much of their homeland and resources.

Staff Armies: Victor's Lasers of Doom! Part 2


This week, in anticipation of his epic grudge match with Chris Townley, Victor shows off his finished Laser army. It is impressive to see how Victor’s army has progressed. From his walkers to his infantry, Victor’s style lends itself nicely to Dust models.

With his affinity for Lasers, it is hard to miss what the underlining theme of Victor’s army is. His mighty Wotan is death incarnate, finely attuned to destroy enemy armour from afar. The Wotan is not a walker be trifled with lightly. 

See the fruit of Victor's toils here...

Axis Blutkreuz Korps Platoon

For the Allied and SSU soldiers that have met them in combat over the years, the soldiers of the Blutkreuz Korps are a dreaded sight indeed. Under the leadership of Generalmajor Sigrid von Thaler, the Blutkreuz have taken the application of VK technology far beyond the imaginings of any Allied or SSU scientist. To von Thaler though, the end justifies the means, and the world must be conquered if it is to be saved.

Check out the Blutkreuz Platoon here..

Outpost Zero talks about Warfare

Check out Part One of Jay's thoughts on Warfare here...
SSU KV-47 Wolfpack

The Soviet KV-47 series of walkers is the very first design ever developed outside of a German facility. The SSU needed an cheap and rugged, yet powerful machine to counter the new threat posed by the Axis walkers. The KV-47 has proved a great success, and is now a staple of SSU combat forces everywhere. In typical SSU fashion, the KV-47 is deployed en masse to overwhelm the opposition. These ‘wolfpacks’, as they have been nicknamed, have learned how to take on the heaviest opposition and survive to fight another day.

Axis Heavy Grenadier Platoon

The Heavy Grenadiers are an elite within an elite. Every squad is led by a veteran who knows what to do without needing orders. The platoon’s officers simply give a squad a new mission and they immediately act, taking whatever measures are necessary to attain their goal.
