|Dust Tactics | Published 13 June 2011|
The fog sat thick along Scapa Flow’s coastline. After waiting through the night with the other men of the 3rd Allied infantry, Nigel shivered in the morning chill. Everything smelled like fish. Bunkered in empty warehouses throughout the port, the Allies hoped to lure the deadly Axis walkers between buildings to negate the advantage the combat machines’ superior range gave them. Nigel looked over the other men. Decker had gone pale. Martin’s shock red hair stood up on the left side, where he’d slept on it. The Grim Reapers stood in the corner, strapping on their jet packs and checking their weapons...
An inherently visual and deeply imaginative game, Dust Tactics was originally inspired by the art of Paolo Parente. Many of you have labored over its masterfully sculpted miniatures to more fully imagine each story. We want to see your best work. Submit your entries to the Dust Tactics miniatures painting contest!
Take Your Best Shot!
Recently, we concluded a well received painting tutorial series, featuring the work of Jóse Brito. Whether you were inspired by Jóse’s camouflaged and weathered walkers or simply wish to show off your best work, the Dust Tactics miniatures painting contest is your chance. Contestants can submit to both of two categories, which will be judged independently–best walker and best squad.
Here are the rules:
“I certify that I am the creator of the attached material and that attached material is original, unpublished work. Fantasy Flight Games and its licensees may reproduce, distribute, publish, display, edit, modify, create derivative works, and otherwise use the material for any purposes in any form and on any media. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless Fantasy Flight Games against all claims, suits, costs, damages, and expenses that may be incurred in connection with the material.”
Our panel of judges will select a winner based on technique, style, neatness, general aesthetic, and faithfulness to the theme of brutal combat in the most inhospitable regions of an alternate 1940s reality. We’ll announce the winners of each category on July 8th, and those lucky fans will each receive prizes based on their category as well as the chance to have their work featured on Fantasy Flight Games media centers across the globe.
Show off your painting skills to the world. This is a great chance to take a shot at alien technology. Start preparing today to send us your entries–[email protected].
Dust Tactics is a tactical miniatures game of brutal combat for 2-4 players. Based on the popular universe created by artist Paolo Parente, Dust Tactics presents an alternate 1940s reality in which alien technology fuels gigantic machines of war, and the world's superpowers clash over rare mineral deposits that could ultimately decide the outcome of WWII.
