The Axis and Allies have stepped up the conflict by introducing Heavy Walkers to the fray. Now, all four variants of the walkers are available in the Dust Tactics Premium line. The Punisher, Fireball, Königsluther, and Sturmkönig are all ready for commanders to add to their arsenal, and can be ordered from our webstore. Each Individual walker comes completely assembled, professionally painted, and ready to tear a hole in any opponent’s front line.
Fire it up
Get up close and personal with the Fireball, a walker with the furious Napalm Thrower. Although the Fireball has a relatively short range, it is brutal when it delivers its incendiary payload. The Scout and Dozer Blade abilities allow this walker to move quickly and freely about the battlefield to get into the best location from which to burn the opposition. The Fireball also has the new Carry Capacity rule, which means it can carry an additional squad to the front line to increase the Allies presence. The Premium Fireball arrives ready to incinerate the opposition right out of the box.
Dispense some punishment
Sit back and deliver artillery strikes with the dual Howitzer of the Premium Punisher. This Allied walker shells any target on the map with its unlimited range cannon. The range and power of the Punisher ensures that the opponent’s walkers stay behind cover to avoid the sights of this machine. The Punisher also benefits from the Carry Capacity and Dozer Blade rules, giving it the flexibility to fulfill other roles than mobile artillery platform.
The Axis Rresponse
The Königsluther specializes in destroying Allied walkers that are foolish enough to wander into its line of sight. The massive guns of this powerhouse are among the most frightening anti-armor weapons in the game, and they have unlimited range, which adds the to appeal of this vehicle.
Besides its thick armor and abundant health, the Königsluther has an MG 44 Zwei to ward of enemy infantry. With so much firepower, the Premium Königsluther is ready to make a heavy impact on your Dust Tactics games.
A jack of all trades
Flatten enemy infantry, armor, and even flyers with the Premium Sturmkönig. This walker is arguably the most tactically flexible of the the Heavy Walker variants, since it is adept at dealing with any kind of threat. Additionally, the Sturmkönig has the Advanced Reactive Fire rule, giving it strong defensive capabilities to control the board. Although slightly less tough than its cousin, the Königsluther, this walker is sure to be a valuable addition to Axis commanders.
These Premium Heavy Walker sets are ready to move onto you Dust Tactics tiles, and look great while doing it. Remember, everything in the Dust Tactics Premium line is fully constructed and expertly painted, so you don’t have to do anything but get your troops into battle. Order your Premium Fireball, Punisher, Königsluther, or Sturmkönig through the Fantasy Flight Games webstore.
Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare Premium Edition features stunning professionally painted miniatures. Based on the popular universe created by artist Paolo Parente, these games present 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.
Wow, after getting the Allied Heavy and giving the Axis Heavy to my buddy as a gift, I am REALLY impressed with the quality and the size. Great tanks I can not wait to paint one!
Wow, these are some beautiful pieces of work....I saw these tanks first hand at GenCon 2011 this year and instantly fell into a mad crush with them. I've bought every single Dust Tactics Premium figure up to this point, including a ton of stuff from Paolo's line of expanded miniatures itself....but $400 to get all 4 is almost unbearable on my pocket book this time of the year which makes me an incredibly sad Panda !!
I absolutely love this game and this product line from FFG, I only wish I were a millionaire :(. Oh FFG, your Dust Tactics products are a work of art.
