The Hall of Heroes Celebrates Two 2012 World Champions
|FFG Hall of Heroes | Published 06 December 2012|
The year is 1947, and World War II still rages. The discovery of alien VK-driven technology has changed the course of the war. Massive combat walkers stride the battlefields supported by troops with laser cannons and phasers. Scientific experiments have unlocked superhuman powers in a handful of soldiers and promoted the development of super-intelligent Axis gorillas. As Axis and Allied battle for control of the world’s VK reserves, their deployment to the war-torn city of Zverograd has prompted the mighty SSU to retaliate!
The 2012 FFG World Championship Weekend saw ferocious battles in the world of Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare, waged between all three of the games’ military blocs. Heavy walkers gunned down scouts and commanders. Gorillas and zombies raced across the battlefield. Phaser cannons scorched walkers and troops like, leaving the burnt scent of ionized atmosphere in the air. When the last shots had been fired and the dust settled, two champions emerged, the winners of our Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare World Championship Tournaments.
Today, we celebrate these champions in the Hall of Heroes.
2012 Dust Warfare World Champion – Julian McPherson
Julian McPherson has been an avid miniatures gamer and painter since the age of 13. He started playing Dust Warfare upon the game’s release and quickly built on the success he had enjoyed in other miniature games.
At the 2012 FFG World Championship Weekend, Julian McPherson conquered the field with his high-powered Allied army to win the inaugural Dust Warfare World Championship.

2012 Dust Tactics World Champion – Louis Gentile
As the 2011 Dust Tactics World Championship Runner-Up and the 2012 Dust Warfare North American Champion, Louis Gentile quickly established himself as one of the greatest generals in the alternate 1940s reality world of Dust Tactics.
During the 2012 FFG World Championship Weekend, Louis took the final steps to assert his command over the battlefield by winning third place in Dust Warfare and taking home the title of 2012 Dust Tactics World Champion.
Louis Gentile plans a strike during the 2012 Dust Tactics World Championship finals.

To the Victor Go the Spoils
What’s better than annihilating your foes and earning your induction to the Hall of Heroes?
As the World Champions for Dust Warfare and Dust Tactics, both Julian McPherson and Louis Gentile earned the opportunity to work with Paolo Parente and the developers to design a miniature for the game. Furthermore, Paolo Parente and Vincent Fontaine will provide them each with a custom, painted, one-of-a-kind version of the miniature he designs.
Congratulations to both Julian McPherson and Louis Gentile, our 2012 Dust Warfare and Dust Tactics World Champions!
In FFG's Hall of Heroes, we celebrate those champions, past and present, who have etched their names into the histories of their games.
