G'Day All

Today we had our third game of Dust Warfare . Two of us had played before , the other four were all novices who picked up the game rather quickly. We missed a few special rules here and there but it was just meant as an intro game . Our main focus for Wargames is usually historical or Sci Fi , so tyo play a WWW2 game was a little enjoyable distraction for all of us . We played a 400 pt game with three platoons a side each platoon played by a different person.

Please enjoy some in-game photos , i apologise in advance if they appear too large . You may notice some of  the Axis have had extra webbing and different heads added to add interest to the figures . I painted them in various Late War camouflage for a veteran appearance .

We all had a good game although my Axis were given a right royal flogging by the Allied forces , my thanks to Ragnar for taking the pictures .

cheers Tom

Battle of Altona? Bist du aus Hamburg? Hast du/ihr Interesse an einem Treffen? Gibt ja noch nicht so viele DW Spieler in HH. Wir spielen meistens im Tabletopshop (momentan ein Achsen und ein Alliierten Spieler). wenzeslaus(ät)gmx.net

Ha Ha Ha , Sorry Mate, Altona is also a small suburb outside of Melbourne Australia .

Altona is where my local gaming club meets , i name most of our games after the suburb whether it be Sci Fi , Fantasy , or Historical , its always the Battle of Altona when we play .

 

cheers Tom

Sounds Like a cracking game. I didn't know their were any Australians on this forum. I've been trying to convince a couple of blokes at the gaming club I visit to play but no one's taken the bait so I have'nt been able to play a game yet.

just a few pic's more to whet the apetite .

The Axis were very easy to paint up , camouflage uniforms hide a myriad of faults  and once pulled apart and reposed they came up ok.

A little trick for adding the extra webbing for a more secure hold cut into the figure slightly so water canteens and ammo  pouches sit flush with the figures contours, the glue will hold much better .

My Axis Walkers were all done the night before the game so a basic drybrush was all i got inished for the game , at some point i will go back and finish the hydraulic rams and add some decals. Ive colour coded the base edges as well so i know who belongs to which squad .

Many thanks to Ragnar  for his pictures and terrain and to Owen and  Greg for supplying the Allies and more terrain.

cheers Tom
