Hi,

I've lurked for Dust Tactics since the game was released, but it was only 1 week ago that I found a player near my home to make some demo games to me.
And now I'm sure : Dust Tactics is a really cool game (and I'm really a big fan of the mechas !).

So I've bought me some minis and the 2 starter sets, and now I must paint tons of minis !!


So here is a test mini (a "sturmpioniere" from the revised core set) for my Axis army to fix the general look of the army : snow on the base, late war camo pattern, and a generic basing style wich can fit urban or rural warfare...

I consider this mini nearly done, even if I think I will add some markings (but I must buy some first ! ^^)
And stay tuned : more minis are coming !

The Germans camp looks great. Actually, everything looks great! The tanks are the coolest things in Dust IMO. Can't wait for you to paint one of those up!

I agree with you, Ciaphas.
Currently, I'm working on the german walkers.


But now, the allied infantry from the revised core set is finished

Im liking these. I have recently bought a load of Dust stuff and am itching to make a start on them, especially the walkers!

Is that rust done with blister foam?

tancrede

@Ciaphas Cain :
Yes, man.
First a thin wash of gryphonne sepia on the whole models, then the chipping using blister foam (scorched brown) and last a few spots of rust with FW pigments.

@Stormtrooper154 :
Hope to see you Dust stuff soon, man !
And welcome in the Dust universe !


So after my allies, I've started to work on my axis forces
And first of them are the backbone of the army : the sturmgrenadiers

These are looking damn good. Neat painting with a great balance between realism and a more comic-y style. Looking forward to more, especially to when/if you paint the heavy walkers as those models are just amazing.

Cheers,
