picked up a few more units during the FF discounted period.  

Sure to post after painting them though might be a while.

I only found out about it this year. It's hard to pass and can easily add up quick if you buy in mass.

I grabbed a massive amount of stuff during the FF sale, and today Wave 1 of my kickstarter pledge came in. Now if I can just get moved so I can start painting again...

alright, despite the Dust vs BF divorce, I still like this game.  Son and I still play it once in a while.  

That said, I have a question on aircraft.  What are the rules on cover from ground units and is there a link on aircraft rules I can print out?

thanks for the help.

Hoth, I'm currently using Warfare rules.  I was able to find a single page rules for tactics on aircraft but not warfare.  Not sure if operation Icarus (or scenario book) are worth getting for more detailed air rules

btw, here is a pic of our most recent game.  At this time we house ruled cover rolls for the air units.

well, made it to GenCon this year and as I was checking out the  Dust display, I was helped by Paulo himself.

As a fan of the game (and not having any experience with the KS fiasco),  I did chat with him for a few and he did mention of future releases (2016) for Dust to include a Japanese faction and updated rules for the Warfare version.

Here is a pic of one of premium edition starters available at the Con.



Was a  nice experience meeting the man himself.

I will say the level of detail in the prepaints is phenomenal.

every once and a while that yearning for Dust still comes around.  Pictured are the most recent games played.  The first pic is Tactics (v1) at the local game store.   Soviets defending a central camp from invading forces coming from both ends.  Friend of mine and I were the  Soviets and we barely won this one.



I also just attended CincyCon and was able to demo Battlefield (v2) which I've never played before.  A big plus was manning the 'Lutwaffe- Florentine' Premium starter that was part of the demo.  Definitely planning on getting a unit of these very soon:





I understand there is another revised rule set coming soon so will be interesting to see what tweeks will made in this game.
I'm glad new stuff are still being released which shows this is still alive and kicking.  Gives me hope in the genre for sure.
Thanks for looking.

Sorry for the delayed response Audacity.  The unit is called the Crows battle squad. They have flying ability which allows them to ignore terrain and have grenade ability where target infantry do not get a cover save.  Their march move is 24" which zips them across the table pretty quick.   The squad has three sets of weapons, in particular Panzerfausts, which though can only be used twice during the game, they can destroy an enemy light vehicle out right (non-defendable)  if a hit is scored.   The vendor didnt have the particular starter set this group comes in else I would have bought it for sure.

Wish I could attend but overseas trips have never been in the cards for me.   I did get to meet Olivier and Paulo at GenCon 2015 which was nice.  Didn't play any games but got to chat with Paulo briefly. Olivier was tied up showing another patron how to play Dust.
