War-Game Wednesday Episode 9: More Dust Warfare and Second Opinions.

Were back with another episode of War-Game Wednesday. Instead of just posting a video this week we decided to also address some of the concerns we’ve received regarding the Dust Warfare Rules. As much as we here at TYG like Dust Warfare it is far from a perfect game and there are a few stumbling blocks that we should focus some attention on. Click the jump to read more and see the video of this weeks game.

Dropship Commander Steals the Show at Salute!

Honestly I love under-dog miniatures companies. The less well-known a miniature company is the more I’m going to love them. That love may not translate into purchases but the Miniature market is dominated so thoroughly by GW that anyone who takes chips out of them is all right in my books. To that end Hawk War-Games seems set to take more of my money. Video created by the team over at Beasts of War. Click the jump to have your mind blown.

As I mentioned in this article, Fantasy Flight Games has recently released the core rulebook for Dust Warfare, their new wargame expansion based on the Dust Tactics boardgame.

Well my order from FFG’s online store came in this week and now that I’ve had a chance to read the rulebook at some length I figured I should share my first impressions with you.

War-Game Wednesday Episode 7- Bitterness

Lorenzo's lovingly painted Dindrenzi ships... right before I shot them off the table!

And were back with Episode 7 of War-Game Wednesday. This week we got fed up with waiting for our Firestorm Armada orders and decided to bust out the lottery 1000 point fleets consisting of the random stuff that did arrive from our orders. We chose one of the cool scenarios I found online and then proceeded to chuck dice for all we were worth. More after the jump!

Dust Warfare Video Released!

Finally FFG has gotten around to leaking a bit more info about their new war-game set in the Dust Universe. I mention my love of Dust Tactics in the Board-games section here. And Dust Warfare ups the scale of the battles you can fight to a more war-game like level. Thankfully you don’t need to listen to me go on about how awesome this is as FFG released a video which basically drives that point home. Video and my thoughts after the jump!
