is this game still alive? or is it basically dead?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I just bought the rules because I thought that they looked awesome. But the next day I talked to some people at a local hobby shop and they said that the game may be dead soon. There isn't anything available to buy aside from whatever you can find locally, and when that stock is gone that's it. I hope that's not the case.

Define 'Dead'. Can you still play it? Well, only if you can find someone to play with, which is going to be quite a challenge. As far as new rules & minis, I think it has gone the way of VOR.

 

Good Luck.

I still shed a single tear anytime I see someone mention VOR.

I'm a collector and a player in the Chicago area, but we're a rare breed.  The FFG handling of Dust Warfare was excellent, it was a much deeper wargame than Dust Tactics Battlefield after Battlefront took over the license.  It's great to see the community-supported effort to keep Dust Warfare current.

so why post to a dead board about how much you dislike Paolo? 
the game is doing fine as a niche game and has a bigger audience than some larger games. 

check out http://www.dustgame.com/ for free rules and unit cards. 
this is a solid online retailer (with a retail store) that sells DUST for great prices:

Hadn't noticed the date of the last post :P "how much I dislike Paolo" sounds like you're fanboying really hard there. The Kickstarter for Dust was a fiasco, borderline scam, there's no denying that. Thats more than enough to push a lot of people away from anything related to its products. 

But you do you, I'm all in on FFG's star wars games, no time - or money really - for other companies.

I will not disagree with you that the Kickstarter "... was a fiasco, borderline scam,..." I will also not say that Paolo had nothing to do with it, or could not have made it better. But as one of the people who did back the kickstarter I place 90% of the blame on battlefraud, as at least in my case every single issue that came up with the kickstatrter was because of them.

It is gaining momentum. With Miniature Market carrying the current product now and many items selling out with in the first few days. I play twice a month at 2 different game stores. Several new factions being released in the year. They are celebrating their 10th Annv. at GenCon. It's a good time to be Dusty
