Hey, a friend and I were thinking about picking up the core Dust Tactics set in anticipation for Dust Warfare (we're both tabletop wargamers so Warfare appeals to us much more than Tactics), but we were wondering if anybody knew whether there would be a core set with a Warfare rulebook in it instead of the Tactics rulebook?
Core Set Rulebook?

No plans have been announced for dedicated Dust Warfare core set. Looks like the plan is to support two rulesets with one minis line. Another thread mentioned that future minis will come with cards for both games.
Go ahead and pick up the core set and you will be ready to go when the DW rulebook hits stores next week.

I don't believe there will be. It looks as though, right now, a lot of people interested in Warfare already play Tactics, so it's easier to just release the rulebook. I am primarily a tabletop gamer as well and I love Tactics. I say pick up the Tactics core set and give the game a go. It will give a nice introduction into the Dust background and it's a blast to play.

75% of the models are available as units outside the core sets. Hopefully soon, the revised core set stuff will be seperate, and there's a few heroes that still need to be released outside of the expansions. But even if you don't play Tactics, or won't play it, the original core set and the revised are still worth every penny for the deal you get on the models included.

Thanks for the quick replies, guys! Just to be clear, I wasn't doubting on getting the revised core set, cause we definitely will. It was more a question of wondering whether we should wait to see if they come out with a new/rerelease a core set with a mini Warfare rulebook. But, seeing as it doesn't look like there are any plans right now, we'll probably just pick up the core set.
