  1. I have several decks for Lo5R from before FFG's acquisition. Are the rules published by FFG backwards compatible with them? On another note, is it possible to purchase the tokens / dial / etc. separately so I can ease into the new cards?
  2. We're getting more and more into Dust Warfare (and Tactics) at Metropolitan Wargamers of NYC (www.nycwargames.com). I have over 600 points of each faction and can lend armies and teach rules to get players interested. Now, we'd love to have more players come and visit and play. If you're in the NY Metro area and can schedule a day in lovely Park Slope, Brooklyn (very easy to get to) please contact me mbwmwg@gmail.com and we'll set it up.

Strap in, Pilots, time to ride. Join the fun at the FFG Regional X-Wing Tournament. Prizes, goodies, fun!

  7. I had a chance to go through the prize package provided by FFG for the Dust Tactics regional … and wasn't too happy. Not enough goodies for my taste.So, I'm working with the Compleat Strategist (our host) to see what else FFG can come up with. Also, the store and I will kick in some goodies ourselves to spice up the offerings. Of course the fun is the game, but we all want to go home with a neat goodie bag, don't we?

  20. Wow, the smack talk is starting already! I'm so looking forward to this, and am busy busy hooking members of our club on the game.
  21. Please see our club's Consimworld folder for an AAR and commetns (I don't know how to upload photos here so they are in the CSW article): http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?14@@.1dd63b2a/105
  22. I'm playing a lot of Dust Tactics at our game club ( www.nycwargames.com ) in an effort to get as many players as possible for our Regional Tournament on May 25th (see the Organized Play folder for details). Some questions arose: 1) Units are adjacent and the attacker wants to do Close Combat. When he declares that attack as his action, can he first fire all his ranged weapons at the unit he's attacking (or, other units for that manner) and THEN do a close combat assault? Or Close Combat only? Or, does he need to use an Action to fire the weapon and then another Action to do Close Combat? 2) If units are in diagonally adjacent squares (points of corners touching) are they considered adjacent for Close Combat? 3) Say a unit is ranged firing into a structure. If the target is standing right inside the door then get Soft Cover for being in the building. If they were one square back from the door they get Hard cover for combining two Soft cover. Say the target was standing 3 or 4 squares back into the building … can they still be targeted with a Hard cover save? Or is there some point you simply can't fire on them. There will be more, but these were top of mind. Thanks!
