It must be said of these bad times of Covid that weigh on everyone, especially on the production that comes from the east! So it’s not a good time for game makers. We are very happy to know that Dust despite everything does not leave us without news for this nefarious 2020 and continues to work well with passion and with great professionalism for his game, his beautiful models and for his Fans. Some projects shown below are completed in terms of 3D design such as “Dark Yung” by Mythos, for this you will need to have a bit of calm and patience to see it made probably in resin version, but from what awaits us it is definitely worth it. waiting. Now I’m going to show and present them, commenting on some important details to know:
RELEASE IN STORES: NEXT SIX SHUTER / BULLDOG: To the great delight of the players of the Allied Block and the USMC faction, a great heavy walker is finally available, sold in a single box with double turret and armament. The versatile M5 Heavy Walker is fast becoming the base of the Allied Armored Forces around the world of Dust 1947. The M5-A is exceptional and can be modified into a version with a suitable armor to destroy enemy armored units with the power of its six M40 Recoiless guns. These cannons are designed to fire in the exact same spot with a devastating effect, and by using Salvo skills that double the dice rolled for the attack by completely emptying your weapons, you can inflict even more damage for a “doubly” devastating attack. The other weapon mode is in the version with the turret armed with the powerful Phaser cannon. There aren’t many armor on the planet that can withstand this kind of firepower. The walker in both modes has three machine guns, two for narrow anti-infantry and one for anti-aircraft defense and smoke bombs to benefit from Ground Cover where it does not exist.

In the box you will find a double weapon mode, the first with the flamethrower for short range attacks, the damage of this weapon ignores the infantry and cover saving throws, highly deadly for the unfortunate infantry units that encounter it, can clean up easily entire areas from indoor enemies. The second mode is with laser cannon (the elite technology created by Blutkreuz) thus becoming a fearsome tank hunter, the Laser ability means that with each successful die roll it generates new dice rolls, theoretically it can wipe out huge enemy half with good lucky shots with a single attack, a weapon of incredible potential. The two versions are equipped with a devastating X-7 missile with guided wire technology (allows you to roll back the failures of the dice) and a frontal machine gun to eliminate infantry at close range. All this is sold together with the cards to play it in the respective factions. The Axis war effort is stronger than ever at the end of 1947: resources are scarce and war machines must be more efficient and easier to manufacture and repair for the Axis to win this war.
