Just an odd question… but I find myself constantly wondering why a game as good as Dust (both of them), has so little local presence. It occurs to me that our local game store has a Press Ganger constantly showing/organizing Warmachine/Hordes events, a Henchman showing off Malifaux, etc… and yet Dust advocacy is left to me, in all my unofficial glory. :-p
I love Dust Tactics and Warfare. I have played WH40k, Warmachine, Malifaux (which I also love albeit in an utterly different way), and a few other systems, but Dust is the one that won my heart. I now own every single Axis/Ally unit, all expansions, all campaign books, and have begun SSU as a faction. I've tried to be a good steward of the game, and am meticulously painting everything so that any demo game I am asked to do will have an amazing table presence.
And for all that, I just wish I had something formal in the way of support. NO ONE… literally within forty-five minutes in any direction plays Dust in any organized way, and based on shelf allocations, the store barely knows it exists. All this, mind you, as someone not in the middle of nowhere, but someone just about an hour-and-half north of New York City.
I know this is a kind of meandering commentary… but for a game so incredibly supported in terms of releases, is anyone else surprised by the virtual invisibilty of the game at your local level?
