by Lucas Dune

Here are the next new releases, they will be available on store shelves and on online shops from 6 December 2019, in time for Christmas gifts.

Paradise Lost: Campaign Book In the aftermath of Operation Hellgate, the Endless War reaches every corner of the world of Dust 1947! The Imperial Japanese Navy is separated from the Axis Block, the Mythos awaken everywhere and on every battlefield even stranger things happen. Paradise has been lost …

Buying the Campaign book Paradise Lost you will find:

  • Wonderful and very evocative illustrations, almost cinematographic.
  • Exciting short stories
  • Six different battlefields, each with dedicated special rules
  • Three new scenarios for each battlefield
  • The new platoons for the IJN and a lot of new units
  • Explaination of new skills like: Tactician, Poison Master, Figther Master and others!
  • Four new poster-size play mats with beautiful graphics, including jungles and rivers
  • Token for particular objects and more!

IJN HQ: Inside this box you will find a wonderful surprise! New cards for some heroes: The Traitor (Priest for the Allied Block); Kaori and Yukiko (not included as miniatures), so you can play them under the banner of the Rising Sun of the IJN Block. It was expected from Kaori and Yukiko, but from Priest it was a real surprise worthy of a true Spy. Also in the IJN Headquarters you can finally play the heroines contained in this beautiful box: – Akiko: an Infantry Ace and rocket launcher expert. – Fumiko: with the skill “General” and the  new “Tactician” ability. – Hitomi: 5 hit points and a small mortar that launches phosphorus grenades. A great support to make a infantry squad more lethal with the Fanatical ability that makes you immune to suppression – Command squad: the team that serves to make the game of the IJN Block more tactical; it also differs from the other command squads because instead of having a single bearer of special weapon, there is a small support team of two  with MG

E-10 TANK HETZER / FLAMHETZER: tank for the Axis with cards to play it both for the Block and for the NDAK faction. In the box you will find a double armament to be able to trim it with flame thrower or cannon making it become a tank hunter. Both versions have a devastating X-7 missile with guided wire technology.

Mythos HQ; long-awaited box for the Mythos block – Irina: beautiful, accompanied by a saber-toothed tiger, an “expert” animal that grabs. This heroine makes the platoon described in Hellgate playable with spy skills. – Rasputin: the equivalent of a command team but for the Mythos monsters, also on the card he appears a Monster of resistance with the abilities: Damage Resilient and Cheat Death. Armed with Radiation, which can damage infantry and vehicles and requires to withdraw the saves hit. – Farouk: makes a team of saboteurs or cultists more robust (and versatile), has a nice double Thompson as weapons and the skills: expert and killing spree. Therefore devastating for enemy infantry units,…..who has used Nathalia knows what I mean. – command squad:  very cheap in army points, but without radio.

this team has a dual function: * official, medical and mechanical for human and normal vehicles * psyhic choir, to act as a “radio” to Rasputin

Steel Guard starter: this starter set of miniatures contains a regulation to play Dust 1947 right away! The start of a new era now starts with an incredible box full of treasures! The contents of the box: – A Karl Kowalsky hero: with Berseker and the skills of the Stel Guard CC – a team of three Steel Guard Close Combats: with Tesla weapons from CC weapons, once in the whole game they can “jump”, doubling movement, marching, and gaining fly and charge – a Type 45 walker: similar to Babushka but costs 1 AP less, and has one less MG (the front one) – a rules booklet with the introductory rules of Dust 1947 – twelve Ssu dice – an antitank trap – an ammunition box – a play mat in mausedpad – six ground tiles – a catalog -3 unit cards – A booklet explaining the Steel Guard Close Combat Platoon These miniatures are supplied with their unit cards, to be used with the Dust 1947 rules. Like all normal Dust miniatures, these are already assembled. They are ready for the battlefield, or for painting, as you prefer!
