Dust Tactics | Published 09 May 2012

At last, Manfred and his battle grenadiers caught sight of their target, the artillery walker that had been bombarding the Axis staging area. His men fanned out into position, and Manfred signaled for the kill. The Allies may have developed the Steel Rain into a lethal artillery walker, but it was known to be vulnerable at short range. The first shot fired, but it sounded strange. Suddenly, the air sparked with phaser blasts. His grenadiers were dropping, but Manfred just stood and watched in amazement. Allied artillery walkers didn’t have phaser cannons…

The time has come to unleash your custom combat walkers! The Dust Tactics Conversion Contest ends tomorrow, May 10th at Midnight CST.

Designed for War

War is often the mother of invention. Scientists and engineers respond rapidly to enemy threats and equip their forces with the means to counter them. After all, predictability is the key to an early grave.

The Dust Tactics Conversion Contest celebrates the greatest contributors’ innovations in two categories, Best Model and Best Creation. Each category will have two winners (one Axis, one Allies), and winners earn $200 credit to dust-models.com and the opportunity to display their models at Gen Con in the Fantasy Flight Games display case. In addition, Best Creation category winners will have their walker turned into a new model kit available from Dust Studio!

The Categories

The contest has two categories: Best Model and Best Creation. The most refined, most weathered, and overall most appealing walker takes the title of Best Model. This category is for the skilled veterans to show off their very best work. The Best Creation category will be judged solely on the idea of the walker conversion. Here, as in war, form follows function, and we want to see the most electrifying walker Dust Tactics players can imagine, regardless of their modeling skills! This category is for every Dust Tactics enthusiast, no matter their skill at converting miniatures. The contest is judged by Paolo Parente, the creator of the Dust universe, and Vincent Fontaine, Art Director of Dust Studio. In all, there are four chances to win. Four walkers will rise victorious, so if you think you’ve got what it takes to win, send us photos of your custom walker by tomorrow!
