      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Beginner list?

5 posts in this topic

I have a quick question. I will be playing dust for the first time this weekend, I have read he rule book and got a general idea of the forces. My friend gave me the allies from his box set, and now I have challengers waiting in line because I am a new player and people see me as an easy target, and they should its all in good fun. I would just like to suprise some people and actually compete my first couple of games, so my question is can you guys help me with some tips on tactics and army list. I will be playing axis and ssu both are very good players, but I dont know their play style yet. Any tips would be great. thanks fellow gamers.

Quick question, long difficult answer.

 

First I would list what units you have. This will give people an idea of where to start with suggestions.

Second, what point value are you going to be playing at?

 

The Revised Core Set (RCS) Allies by themselves are a pretty formidable force and are easily expanded to get a solid 150 AP list. How you expand becomes the big question.

I think its a 300 value game. I have 2 BBQ squads, Rhino (hero) 2 Wildires, 2 grim reapers , hell boys, 1 sniper, Boss command squad, 1 hammers, 1 recon squad, and a black hawk walker. I have the ability to get more if you suggest im missing something.

Head on over to Dust-War.com's forums - plenty of Allied players there who will chime in with lists, myself included.

The Grimm Reapers are an excellent ant-infantry squad.The Allies have the best aircraft in the game. Also the Fireball can be pretty nasty w/ Air Drop.
