The Final Countdown! Incident 4156 Mission 5.

Your intel reveals that a rogue Totenmeisterin has started up her own zombie army. With her army to protect her she plans on launching five rockets infused with a airborne Wiederbelebungsserum that could infect countless unsuspecting people with the zombie virus. The rockets are small to avoid detection and once fired will be impossible to stop. You and your allies must stop this before the rockets are deployed.

Dust Tactic: Battlefield Rules

This week we are giving you the Dust Tactics: Battlefield rules. Whilst being a true translation of Dust Tactics to a more traditional tabletop wargame, Battlefield does have some elements in common with Warfare.

Battlefield uses the same core rules and cards as Tactics so the transition from grids to tabletop is straight forward. Warfare players will find that there are some aspects to Battlefield that they will recognise, most notably the Suppression and Platoon rules.

Make sure to check back at the end of the week as we will be posting up some Battlefield missions and Platoons.

Welcome To The New Edition Of Dust Tactics!


For the first time, Dust Tactics is available as a stand-alone rulebook!

The rulebook is a 112 page full-colour hardback book contains everything that you need to know to play Dust Tactics, with clearly illustrated rules examples, platoon organisations, special rules and missions.
Another Earth. A different 1947. The Second World War has raged for nearly a decade and its grip has spread to every continent on the planet. War has advanced swiftly and strangely in the Dust universe through the application of Alien VK technology — a limitless source of energy in its simplest form, and an unthinkable weapon in the wrong hands. Out of the mind of Paolo Parente comes the world of Dust, a world where tanks have evolved into powerful combat walkers, where rocket troops take to the skies and the latest laser cannon, phasers, and Tesla weapons rule.
