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.

Operation Babylon Dust Kickstarter

 
Starting next week, the latest release for Dust Tactics will be Dust Studio’s first Kickstarter project: Operation Babylon.

Operation Babylon will bring the war to the deserts of the Middle East, introducing the Dust equivalents of real historical forces like the Afrikakorps, Spetsnaz and United States Marine Corps, all combined with the excitement of classic action-adventure fiction.

Dust Studio are working with Battlefront to bring this project to completion. Battlefront will handle the fulfillment of the pledges, shipping the rewards to backers through their worldwide distribution network

Sturmkönig (D302) Spotlight

The Sturmkönig is the second configuration of the Heavy Panzer Walker.

The Sturmkönig excels at defending troops as they move into position. While slightly less armoured and resilient than the Königsluther, the Sturmkönig provides Axis commanders different strategic options with its Advanced Reactive Fire skill.

Heavy Tesla Bunker / Strongpoint (DT073.B) V2 Fortification Rules

Dust has had some pretty rugged fortifications in the form of bunkers and strongpoints for a while now, so it’s no surprise that the new rules cover them (as well as minefields, barbed wire, and trenches). These rules are designed to be as simple to use as possible, while giving the flavour of these nearly indestructible monstrosities.

Read the fortification rules found at the end of the special rule section here...

 


Dust Battlefield: Platoons

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

Checkout the Hotdog and Micky here...

 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.

Check out the Königsluther here...
