When I first saw Dust Tactics, I admittedly didn’t care much about it beyond the interesting aesthetics, but then the buzz started about it going to the tabletop and here we are. My local gaming group has been giving the rules a go, feeling it out to see if we were willing to invest in another system. As it stands, we regularly play 40k and Warmahordes, as well as all the other big name games, so I went in with a good grasp of gaming and zero expectations.
Command Section – Bazooka Joe
Section 1 – Assault Ranger Squad
Section 2 – Combat Ranger Squad
Section 3 – Recon Ranger Squad
Support – M2 Medium Assault Walker “Pounder”
Support – M2 Medium Assault Walker “Hot Dog”
Section 1 – Laser Grenadiers
Section 2 – Battle Grenadiers
Section 3 – Recon Grenadiers
Support – Medium Panzer II “Ludwig”
Support – Medium Panzer II “Luther”
There you have it. Not the most depth and I swear I will try to invest in a real camera (instead of my phone) and/or try to do a video in the future. The pictures, I hope, illustrated the battle at least somewhat and I hope the write-up showed the fun interplay between players in each turn. Reactions seem to be essential, leading to serious game-changers – such as the total obliteration of my Recon Ranger Squad.
