Conflict! First Games of Dust 1947 on New Jungle Terrain Set-Up

With the recent release of Paolo Parente’s Dust 1947, some recent enthusiasm from the Middling’s gaming colleagues in the setting, and the acquisition of a Desert Wasteland Fat-Mat, it was time to break out the Blutkruz zombies and gorillas and tear up some walker…

These were mostly learning games played over a few days on the same set-up to familiarize us with the new ruleset and give the terrain set-up a try out.

The first day of Dust conflict consisted of 30 pts of Allies and Axis vs 60 points of SSU…played over two games… img_4800

The Middling’s Blutkruz zombies and apes work their way up the middle, clinging to quonset huts for cover…

The Second Day of Dust featured a 50 pt and then an 80 pt Axis vs Allied battle, the Middling’s blutkruz vs Tom’s Allied.

The allies line up across the battlefield from the Axis forces…

Dust 1947 is fast and deadly, with a reaction mechanic that breaks up the tedium of you-go-MIddling-goes, a pretty great aesthetic and inexpensive buy-in. Expect it to be played more in the future.
