I am really enjoying painting up these Dust figures. My German Army is looking awesome and it is really coming together nicely. While there are little things here or there that are funky there is so much character in each figure. The heroes for all the armies are absolutely killer awesome. The Axis Hero pack some with three heroes to support your Dust Tactics/Warfare Army.

Episode 7 of Outpost 309 is The Roleplaying Games Episode! Jared brings his longtime friend and game master Alex on board, and the guys delve into the various types of RPGs. After this fascinating look at RPG basics, the guys talk about the social acceptability of said games, and conclude that there truly is something for everyone here. The guys review Fruitirelli for the kids, and have many video game shenanigans to share (especially interesting if you've heard of a thing called Titanfall).
Much thanks to listener and squadmate Sam for writing the intro!

Got another game of Dust Tactics in recently. We played Seize the Explosives mission out of Victory Bridge Campaign book that comes in the Revised Core Set. It is the fifth of six missions in the book. In the last several missions the Germans launched an attack on Victory Bridge, after securing one side of the bridge they fought to secure the other side. Once secured by the Germans, the Allies launched a successful counter attack. Now the Germans are fighting to stop the bridges destruction.

I have been buying and painting up an Allied and German force for Dust for about a month and figured it was time to get a Tactics game in to test out the rules. I played through the Recon in Force from Victory Bridge to get a swing for things, then jumped right into the second mission, Bridge in Sight. I built two forces using all the troops from the Revised Core Set.

The distracted gamers are back, with a special Historical Miniature Wargaming episode! This one features an Australian 3rd chair, Ben, who takes us on a journey through several historical wargames (see links below). After talking at length about these awesome games, the guys then take a step back to talk about the social acceptability of historical wargames in our popular culture. Add in Ben's discussion of a great family game called Forbidden Desert, and the usual video game banter (featuring Arma 3, Wargame: Red Dragon, and Assassin's Creed 4, and you have our most ambitious podcast yet! Enjoy!
