  1. As a Dust player (and Infinity, and...) here are some examples of our average tables, taking into account the walkers need room to maneuver. Most terrain is within movement distance of the infantry, so pretty much 1/4 to 1/3 of the table. Cheers!
  2. Here is something I have been considering: https://themagnetbaron.com/collections/star-wars-legion/products/4x-medium-small-posable-magnetic-flight-stands-star-wars-legion-1 Cheers!
  3. Much thanks to the OP! Ordered mine from CoolMiniOrNot, and received them yesterday. They work well with sleeved cards, and for my OCD nature (I use Ultra side-loading pages for Dust) -- makes it very easy to keep units sorted; right now at least, I'll use them for games to keep table-top clutter to a minimum. Cheers!
  4. I use pre-painted terrain, both some I made myself and from other manufacturers. I like the GaleForce 9 stuff -- check ebay, as I see the OOP boxes come up on there regularly. I also like the stuff from Palo, which I don't think is over priced. If you take into account the price of the miniature, doubling the price for pre-painted is in line with the least expensive painting service around here -- the retail price for a basic paint job. When time or space issues are present (packing to a tourney), I do fall back on the two-dimensional tiles, but prefer three-dimensional terrain. The terrain you posted is used at my LGS and seems robust and very handy. Cheers!
  5. Have you purchased more than one game system from FFG? Yes. If you answered YES to #1, what are they? Android:Netrunner (as soon as the reprint is available), Call of Cthulhu and LotR LCGs (considering), Elder Sign, Dust Tactics, Dust Warfare, and X-Wing. Are the games good quality materials? ( do they fall apart, fade, damage easily? ) Thus far, everything I have purchased has been top notch (materials-wise). Their writing and editing ability sometimes leaves something to be desired, necessitating immediate errata. This was mostly with Dust Warfare (complete drivel IMO). Are the games well made 'games?' ( do they require a lot of errata, are they usually broken right off the shelf, do the rules make sense?) As you are writing this under an LCG forum, I assume you mean as pertaining to LCGs, which I am new to and only have a passing understanding (so far). Again, so far things seem to have been well play tested, and work out of the box with some minor errata or FAQ, which are quickly posted to their support section. Dust Warfare seems to have been a one-off, and rushed to completion, while the other games I have played or experienced seem much more solid and playable out of the box. Cheers, James
  6. Hi! I live in Oro Valley (Tucson), and am interested in learning and playing Netrunner. I missed out on the first print run so I have to wait until the second release before I'll have my own copy. Organic chem has me pretty busy until December, but I usually make it up to Phoenix once a month or so. Cheers!

Very pleased Battle Foam has produced this, now I just need to bite the bullet and pay the crazy shipping for it. i was super excited about this until I saw the economy shipping was the same price as the foam. I just a shipping estimate from the battlefoam site and noticed no change in the price. If they are charging more than $10 in shipping I think that kills the price point for most gamers. Specially when I did a search for 1 1/4 inch foam. You can by a 54' by 72' sheet for $20-25 depending on the depth you may want. That would allow you to cut out 16, 11 by 15 sections for trays. yeah, Romeo has been getting a little "proud" of his product. With the almost 50% price hike on all his foam products and all games that have signed up with him you would think he would at least do a flat rate shipping. "Proud" of his product -- that is a little disingenuous don't you think? I think he has every right to be proud of his company and what they provide. Yes his shipping has increased, but I think that has more to do with the shippers than himself -- and remember, while the foam is light weight, it is the size of the package that often drives the price as much as weight. General price increases are a by-product of the economy right now. He works hard for his money and delivers a superior product, let's cut him some slack and be happy that we no longer have to pluck foam. Cheers!
  8. AshDOG said: Anyone know how tall is the tallest Allied mech? Trying to see how tall I should order the battlefoam. As I recall they are around 3.5 inches. I made my custom tray four inches to be on the safe side. Here is the file I created, which you can send to Battle Foam. Cheers!
  9. AshDOG said: And how tall are those infantry trays? The Grey Knight trays are 1.5 inches: (GK/INQ) Grey Knight Troop Foam Tray (BF-1.5) The other trays are from the DT package trays: Dust Tactics Kit for the P.A.C.K. 432 (BF) Cheers!
  10. Here is my set up, showing the pre-cut DT trays with extra Grey Knight trays, and the heavy trays along with a custom tray I made for my extra walkers. I have since created another custom tray for walkers that holds nine. This setup shows all the models from the original box, revised core, and extras. The bag is a 720. Cheers!
  11. Saw this on Facebook, and it looks like it is going to be quite the event for 2013 (its second year). I attended last year and had a great time -- they really pulled out the stops for a first-year convention, Skyping in with Paolo (who may attend in 2013) and Andy Chambers. I hear this year will include a full "world's fair" kind of expo with our favorite Axis, Allies, and SSU girls! I also saw that online registration is open now, so I am going to take advantage of the early bird special. It is in Phoenix Arizona, at the convention center -- and the airport is a major hub, which should make getting there easy. Cheers! "The Vul-Con team got together for a photoshoot for our Dust fans this weekend featuring the very lovely Ms. Lessa as the one and only Master Sergeant Rosie Donovan for our build-up to the Dust World Expo during Vul-Con 2013. Special thanks also to Photos by Tatiana / Geekssociated Press for their amaizing talent and continued support! We'll be announcing the launch of the new Dust World Expo site soon which will give a complete rundown of the activities you'll be able to see and participate in at Dust World Expo during Vul-Con 2013 this coming Feb! See you there!"

  13. Three files are downloading as zero kb: Conditions -- tournament play.psd deploy -- tournament play.psd objectives -- tournament play.psd Not sure why, as all the other files have downloaded successfully. Great work all around!
  14. For a $20 investment (PDF), why not go ahead and buy Dust Warfare? If you don't like, you won't be out much cash. I absolutely would NOT purchase the hard copy -- it is very poorly written (just from a gramatical standpoint, not to mention the rule set has holes requiring house rules), with one-third of the forces (SSU) left out. No doubt a rewrite will be forthcoming in the not too distant future; I am waiting to see if Mr. Martian can apply a bit of high school math to the next version… That being said, they are two different games and I enjoy (mostly, ignoring the stupid gaffs and applying house rules as needed) warfare when I want a "larger" game requiring more interaction between units, or because that is what is being played that night. My go to is Dust Tactics -- the rule set is polished and works, providing an enjoyably quick and ferocious game play. I would say I remain 80% Dust Tactics and 20% Dust Warfare. If you come from a 40k or FoW background, you might enjoy Dust Warfare as it will seem more familier. Cheers!
  15. Nope, I'll pass. Decent idea (I bought the playmats for Wings of War), but poorly executed. Too small, so two at a minium are needed. I agree that both sides should have been grided -- too small for warfare anyway; the sides should have been printed with different terrain. As has been stated, there are several scenarios that can't be run without water or bridge. Cheers!
