Dust Warfare : Heavy Kommandotrupp

Painted up several miniatures since my last update but I wish to post in this blog consistently, therefore I will be spacing out my posts for each of my minis that are painted.

The Schewer Sturmgrenadiere Command Squad are the command troop of Schewer Grenadier list aka heavy infantry list of the Axis army.

They are Soldier 3 encased in heavy armor, armed with twin MG44 machineguns as well as a Fliegerfaust (i.e. an anti-air weapon which launch six missiles to aerial targets).

Dust Warfare: Axis Specialist (Sniper and Beobachter Teams)

Painted up my Special Ops Grenadiers for my growing Axis army.

As per my previous comments on this Fantasy Flight Games product, it comes pre-primed in grey.

The mould is in good details and comes packaged in nice box art and inner plastic packaging.

The plastic used is a soft type which protects the models from the rough snap if it falls from the gaming table or when your small kids (like mine hehehe...) decides to play toy soldier with them.

Dust Warfare: Axis Battle Grenadiers

Got my first Dust Warfare models painted up.

The Battle Grenadiers is one of the basic infantry blocks of the Axis army. They are meant to be the Jack of All Trades equipped with a Panzershreck and Panzerfausts for anti armor, couple with Stg47 assault rifles for the rough and dirty anti personnel role.

Dust Warfare : And They Are Here!

Drop down to my LGS and decided to get myself the basic building blocks of an Axis.
I purchased a box of the PBIs (Poor Bloody Infantry) or to be precise the Kampf Sturmgrenadieren Squad.

Dust Warfare : Choosing my Army

I have read through the Dust Warfare Rulebook since my last post and was quite excited with playing the game.

Post-"Reading the Rulebook" thoughts...

But of course you need to start with a faction which currently fields Axis, Allies and the newly introduced faction, SSU (the Soviet Union, China and other Communist blocs).

And this is Dust Warfare time line which means we can throw out the history books of WW2 after 1943 since in this setting, Adolf Hitler (the Fuhrer of Germany) was assassinated and a whole revamped Germany started kicking Allied butts and forced the Soviets on a stalemate in the Eastern Front! And all thanks to the mysterious VK power source!

Dust Warfare

My local gaming group is hooking up Dust Warfare a game created by Fantasy Flight Games with the fantastic storyline and artwork by Paolo Parente.

One thing strikes me as the coolest thing in a miniature gaming game....Alternate WW2 Walkers!
Yeah! I have a fetish for WW2 walkers...
