5 New Releases for Dust Tactics From Fantasy Flight Games

 Dust Tactics, Fantasy Flight Games, Gaming News  Comments Off on 5 New Releases for Dust Tactics From Fantasy Flight Games
Jan 192013

Dust Tactics: Operation Icarus

$ 44.95

A new campaign expansion for Dust Tactics, Operation “Icarus” relates the first thrust of a major Allied assault against the Axis forces holding Zverograd’s pivotal airfield. Operation “Icarus” introduces new rules for minefields, trees, and the quonset huts in which the Axis forces await the Allied assault. Two new heroes join the fray, including the Allied superhuman, Sgt. Victory. All these elements come together in seven tense and ferocious scenarios as the blocs of Dust Tactics vie for control of the airfield and the skies.


Dust Tactics: Airfield Accessory Pack QH

$ 19.95

Quonset Huts The Airfield Accessory Pack adds six quonset hut sections to your games of Dust Tactics. Introduced in Operation “Icarus,” quonset huts are a new type of structure that can be erected quickly to provide soldiers with sturdy shelter against the elements. They can also be joined together to create longer structures with a variety of strategic arrangements. The Airfield Accessory Pack allows you to enhance your battlefields, provide your soldiers with cover, and develop your bases.


Dust Tactics: USMC Heavy Weapons Teams

$ 29.95

In the alternate-reality 1940s of Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare, the United States Marine Corps have come to value the ability to move quickly over terrain, and a small team carrying heavy weaponry is sometimes the best option for getting fire support into position. The two squads of the USMC Heavy Weapons Teams are veterans of many campaigns, men who remain fearless even when heavily outnumbered. The Choppers field a .50 cal machine gun, and the Leathernecks batter foes with their 120mm heavy mortar.


Dust Tactics: Horten HO-347

$ 29.95

The two variations of the HO-347 have placed the Axis on the brink of a long-awaited resurgence of air superiority in the fierce battles of Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare. The introduction of VK engines has permitted the Axis’ newest aircraft to fly faster and climb higher than anyone believed to be possible just a few years ago. The Fledermaus III is both a fighter and an effective ground-attack plane while the Fledermaus IV is a fighter/bomber that carries numerous explosives under its fuselage.


Dust Tactics: SSU KV47 Recovery & Demo Walker

$ 19.99

Recovery & Demolition Walker The SSU forces of Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare gain new strategic options for battlefield deployment with the KV47 Recovery & Demolition Walker. Its four different models were developed to allow SSU battlefield forces to recover valuable VK materials and prevent the theft of the SSU’s VK technology. The walker’s armor provides SSU engineers protection from enemy fire in the heat of combat even while its equipment allows them to swiftly salvage materials and fend off enemy infantry and tanks.

Rise of the Zombies From Dan Verssen Games

Jan 182013

Rise of the Zombies

Release Date: Jan 2013

$ 39.99

Rise of the Zombies All players play cards during a common “Survivor Turn”. Declare which card you are playing, and which zombie you are attacking, and roll dice. This simulates the chaos of combat. Most cards can be used to perform more than 1 function. You can perform as many actions during the Survivor Turn as your cards can support. You can even trade weapons and items with other Survivors in your Location. Once all players have resolved their actions, the Zombies get to attack. It then starts again with the common Survivor Turn. You’ll need to not only act like a hero, but also work well as part of your co-operative team if you hope to survive. If you go running off ahead and no one else has the cards to follow, you’ll be fighting a herd of Zombies on your own – and probably dying. On the other hand, if you can’t keep up with the other Survivors, you’ll soon hear words like, “You wait right here, we’ll come back for you.” Um, yeah.


COMBAT Combat is fast and easy. Roll a 6-sided die, add your bonuses and check your Weapon card to see how many Wounds you inflicted. The higher you roll, the more Wounds you inflict. If you inflict the killing attack on a Zombie card, you claim the card and its Experience value.


EXPERIENCE Turn in your Zombie cards to upgrade weapons, buy items, and purchase skills. How you play the game is up to you. You don’t gain anything by having other Survivors die, but if you spend too much time trying to help others, it might cost you your own survival. Help them? Leave them behind? It’s all up to you.

I don’t you about but this game has zombies so Dan Verssen Games has one I need to play
