I have to say I’m a little embarrassed by my bad grammar in the quote from FTE, but typos happen.

Happy gaming,

New Dust Kampfaffe…

Sorry for the delay in posting but I was not doing so well last week.

But anyway here is the latest from Battlefront for DT.

DT077DT077d

Thematically the combat apes are pretty cool, but I’m a little dubious of building an entire army around them. Although I must say paired with Marcus in urban terrain they should be very effective.

Happy gaming.

The latest for Dust Tactics…

Battlefront has posted new info for the latest destroyers for Allies, a large vehicle somewhere between a Mickey chassis and a Punisher hull.

DT076-01

The two variants both seem useful, but are in the same power tier as a Wotan or Flammluther, but are larger and less maneuverable.

DT076eDT076d

I would like to point out a possible error on the Six-Shooter’s card. It appears to have two .30 cal. machine guns but only one is listed on the card.

I may be wrong, but what do you folks think?

Happy gaming.

Let’s Go to Prison!

The Oleg Story: Survival

art_zps6293e599

The Oleg Story: Survival: is a prison based board game, the story is based on Oleg, he is a known international hacker who was extradited to the US after leaking confidential information from the government. He has been incarcerated in one of the most notorious prisons in North America, which not only houses domestic criminals but also foreign criminals.

It is one of the most dangerous prisons in the world and the United States government has denied any acknowledgement of Oleg.

The prison houses 6 large gangs and many small sub gangs. These gangs include 618 Nation a known street gang, Ryder Brotherhood a supremacist organization, The Asian Family who are an organized crime group from China. The Mobsters who were very huge in the 60s - 80s and are now all serving life sentences. Russian Spies are dangerous, do not trust them, and finally Non Gang Members also known as NGM who’s led by Oleg are all in your hands.

The game can be played by up to 2-6 players. The players play and control the stories of 6 rival gangs in the prison. You can also play a survival round or even play cooperative and play with your assigned mission cards. Not only that, but you can also ally with your fellow players and target other players and even betray your allied clan as everyone has their own agendas.

This looks like it might be fun for someone like me, as I actually used to be a prison guard. So, I’ll be keeping an eye on this one. Let’s all hope it succeeds. Hopefully I’ll be able to give you all a more in-depth review soon.

Happy Gaming.

New DT SSU Armor 4 NCOs…

Here is our first detailed look at the new Armor 4 NCOs for the SSU. See more below.

DT057b

http://www.gf9.com/Default.aspx?tabid=348&art_id=3997

DT057d

Well looking at the card they’re not too different from the Red Tornado They have one Shotgun replaced with dual DSHKs which is actually weaker then ether the Shotguns or the 20mm. This is probably just to balance them out, in order to keep the AP cost similar to the Axis and Allies NCOs.

All in all I’m looking forward to these new SSU marvels.

Happy gaming.

New Tesla Bunker for DT

The latest from Battlefront for Dust Tactics for more info: http://www.gf9.com/

DT073.B-01

It’s interesting how all the weapons for each faction are actually the same with only different “barrels.” I like the inclusion of some “decorative” bits, for added value for all the bunker sets. I wonder if the plan a neutral unarmed bunker pack.

DT073.Ba (1)

And here are all the unit cards.

New Dust Axis Bunker…

I know it’s a little late in the day but, Battlefront is in New Zeeland, so the time differential is going to cause a lot of this in the future. Anyway I’m pressed for time so here is the link for more info, and the unit cards.

http://www.gf9.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=3988

DT073.AhDT073.AgDT073.AfDT073.AeDT073.AdDT073.Ac

I wonder why there are so many more variations for the Axis then the Allies.

Happy gaming.

Happy shopping.

SSU Armor 4 in detail

Today we have a detailed look at the SSU’s new massive Armor 4 infantry. These bad boy can not only deal out huge anti-infantry damage. But you going to be hard pressed to take them down with most “normal” infantry who can barely damage such high class armor.

DT058c

Here is the detailed Dust Tactics stat card, for this surprisingly cheap unit. With dual ammo heavy shotguns, one 20mm MG, and a very effective close combat weapon, all in an armor 4 shell, these guys defiantly look like a deal. Especially if your facing one of those infantry heavy army lists. The only real downside aside from their lack of anti-armor ability is their lack of speed, with only move one they’ll take some time to cross the battlefield. Thankfully for the SSU the have those nifty transport helicopters. Of course they’re not any slower than most other units so it may not be any sort of issue.

DT058d

I have to say if this trend continues then the SSU is going to be the army of choice for many players.

Happy Gaming.
