Other axis allies

Recommended Posts

I guess they could be some kind of fast close combat squad like BBQ Rangers. Instead of flamers they would have pistols or SMG's and swords with let's say 2/1

I don't like the idea of getting air units for Axis and Allies soon. The SSU is underpowered already, having those attack choppers gives them that small edge, you only then need to swap air lifted walkers with normal ones and you got a pretty nice army.

Perhaps a future expansion will cover the paciffic front? Japanese and Australian units would be a great addition. It would also allow for the possibility to jungle fighting rules.

from the Dust warfare book:

1944 - August: Japan starts the 'Steel Samurai' program to develop its own war walkers.

 

I also can`t wait for Japan to get its own army.

In the Dust Strategy Board Game there's a picture of a Japanese walker (page 7 of the PDF), which has a characteristic "ball" front hull shape with a nice rounded antenna thing on top, kinda like the WW2 Type 97, and possibly a flamer weapon configuration.

Those pics look great.

I notice from the upcoming Operation Hades expansion announcment www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=3412  that:

 "The darkness of the underground grants a unit increasing levels of cover the farther it is from an attacking unit, and units cannot target foes with four or more spaces between them."

This rule could be easliy translated into use in a dense jungle follage enviroment (or indeed into a fog/mist based senario).

I also reckon that adding parachute units is possible using the same rules that the SSU Helicoptors have for dropping into a battle.

I really hope that the Japanese and Australasian armies will be developed.

Yes all of these ideas are great. Allot of us were hoping that Dust Warfare would deliver all that and more, but they went and made an entirely new game.
I would love to see them flesh out Dust. The unfortunate thing is they are painfully slow in producing anything. There usual seems to be about a month late for a release date.
Your best is to make some house rules.

 You will probably not see any minor allies or axis armies as this is not that type of game. It's an alternate WW2 where you are fighting for

a valuable resource and world domination. You will see special units more likely from the Mid level axis and allied armies.
