Any speculations on Wilhelm?

Its a "Dustified" Autobolinda 41 (probably the Italeri kit). Looks cool though and I would like to see them release more models like that.

 

 

I think we have a winner, here's a pic of the actual kit in question (assembled of course).

Now that is cool. I may get an italeri kit ot two and bang out a few with different turrets.

 I still hope we will see some new platoons in the next expansions. After seeing Tina, Wilhelm and the French Foreign Legion Kill Team at Gencon i think those could well be themed around the North African war theater. Neues Deutsches Afrika Korps, Free French, British 8th Army… and looking at the Dust world map perhaps even SSU troops pushing into Southern Egypt. 

I still do not know what to make of the Autoblinda Laser vehicle Wilhelm is sitting in. Is it a kitbash? Dust Models has never done something like that before as far as i know. Please correct me if i am wrong. But some light dustified vehicles would get me exited.

And btw:

Paolo stated on the Facebook group that it was a Tamiya model he had done for the photoshoot, modified obviously, but also that he was working on a set of dustified turrets that would fit a tamiya Panther.

Is Dust Studio considering putting out the Tamiya conversions for for the "fun of it," in their 1/48 line, or will this be an actual game product complete with AP? I am thinking the former only, as I cannot see FF passing on the full price they could make of the entire model. 

It would be cool though, especially if they had just card packs for vehicles complete with AP and weapon lines, so the entire lines of 1/48 conventional Tamiya/Hasegawa WWII models could be used like you can in S.O.T.R. 

I realize one could go ahead make cards in photo shop for conventional units, but it arguing/debating with players on whether they should be legal units, what the weapon lines should be, AP, etc., would not be worth it to me.

Agreed, they should just keep them as a statline in the books and card, provide players with just the dustified components and allow players to get the rest of the vehicle themselves, it would allow them to add a considerable amount of new units to the game without having to produce that much.

They can even make it a conversion pack that will provide you with the parts for 2 to 3 vehicles, imagine an axis heavy armoured car platoon box with bits to create a dust puma with a new turret or a schwere laserkanone to mounted on the sdkfz 234/4 chassis

Also my theory on where this is all going:

I think you may be right about North Africa being next.  The new Marine units that were announced have box pictures that appear to be set in the desert.

A bit off with your deductions I think.  More like U S  Marine Corp = Amphibious landings = beach = sand
