Dust: 3 Projects at Once

OK, on to Dust Warfare. I like the rules, but have not played yet. I'm hoping to get a game in with a friend at work sometime over the next two weeks. I think I'm going to like it. With that in mind, I've started working on an Axis army, and I have three projects for this currently underway.

The first piece is a repaint of the Axis medium walker. I'm about half-way finished at this point. The main camo colors are down, and now I need to move on to weathering, decals and detail work...and the base.

I really like the Dust vehicles (makes me think of Gear Krieg). The Dust infantry, however, makes me throw up in my mouth. So, I'm going to proxy all infantry pieces for my army. I'm starting with a base of Artizan German Late War infantry for all standard Battle Grenadiers. The army I'm putting together will use 3 sections of these, along with the command section. I have a number of figures already good to go for these units...

Though I do have a number of slots to fill, mostly with panzerknackers and radio men. So, I've got a number of figures underway to fill out the sections, and a few more on order from Artizan.

I'm also doing a section of Laser Grenadiers and a Hero figure. For these, I'm using 40K figures from Forge World. These are Death Korps troopers, who fit the Weird War II theme perfectly. These beautiful resin figures went together quickly, and look like they will paint up quite nicely.

Well, I don't know what project I'm going to finish first, but when I do, I'll post a step-by-step on the painting of them/it.

'Til next time.


  1. LOL, they aren't that bad! (ok some are better than others). Nice work on the walker!

  2. If your a Gear Krieg fan then check out Company B's Official 28mm Gear Kreig stuff. I'm more partial to the Dust walkers but the link is below. In addition, Those walkers look alot better with straight WWII minis then the Dust ones any day.

    Great paint,

  3. WOW, throw up in your mouth, OMG thats funny!
    Good luck with your project .
