Hi all.
 
As you can probably tell from my avatar and sig, I'm a Dust Warfare player. But I've had an eye on X-Wing since Gencon last year, and finally got to play my first game in January (with wave 2 ships!). I loved it, but at the time the UK was sold out of everything. I've played a few more games since then, and eventually placed an order last week for a core set, X-Wing and TIE Advanced so a friend and me could play a thematic Luke vs Vader game this week. I also bought a Y-Wing last night.
 
In the end we played 2 games yesterday evening. My Rebels won the first with just the core setup (Luke, Night Beast, Obsidian pilot), and his Empire won the second with the extra X-WIng (Wedge) and Vader added in (Vader blew up Luke to win the game). We'll play the decider next week. As you might expect, many film quotes were said. :)
 
Anyway, in future I plan to play much more X-Wing, because it's awesome (but you already knew that). The only slight knock is that the ship stands are a little fragile; two of them already broke, but I managed to fix them. Also, if any London players are around, give us a shout. I'm curious how many are out there.

Welcome! I'm nowhere near London, but if you ever come down under, bring your minis and come visit!

Dig it, man! Welcome to X-Wing! I'm nowhere near London either, but props all the same. 

You know, being an old AT-43 Red Blok player, I've kinda always had my eye on Dust… If there were more people around me geographically that played, I'd definitely give it a shot sometime.

Welcome to the boards :)

How is Dust anyway?  Is it like a smaller squad based wargame or more mass combat like 40K that sort of thing?

Dust is sort-of in-between 40K and a skirmish game. For 300 points (standard tournament size), there's usually about 30-40 models on the table per player, sometimes less if a player takes heavy units, walkers or aircraft. Both Dust and X-Wing allow for lots of synergy between units/ships, which is something I like in a game. It makes the game more than the sum of its mechanics.

Here's a kinda silly question. How long between new releases do you usually wait? Are we talking one new release a year, every 6 months? What?

Dust usually gets new releases every 3 months or so in waves commonly named after the current campaign (the current one is Icarus). The models are actually designed by Dust Studio; FFG just packages and distributes them (and publishes the Campaign Books for Dust Warfare).
