|Dust Premium Miniatures | Published 16 September 2010|
Dust Tactics, the tactical miniatures board game set in an alternate 1940s reality where alien technology fuels gigantic machines of war, is fast approaching release. As always, keep your eyes on this website for the latest news, including the announcement the moment it has arrived at your local game store!
Today, we’re thrilled to announce that Dust Tactics Deluxe Edition pre-orders have begun! In fact, the first batch of magnificently painted Deluxe Edition core sets is on its way to our warehouse and will be here shortly.
The Dust Tactics Deluxe Edition is a remarkable product. Filled with some of the nicest tabletop miniature quality models that you’ll find in a board game, the level of offered in the Dust Tactics Deluxe Edition is stunning and unprecedented in the industry. Each figure in the box has been painted to the same level of quality you’ll find pictured on the unit cards, throughout the scenario guide, and in the rulebook. Every model is a reproduction of Dust Studio’s high quality work.
Because it is produced at a level of quality not feasible for standard mass-production processes, a unique production workflow has been developed. It allows this premium edition to be painted in small batches, therefore achieving a consistent and very high-quality result. This not only assures master-quality miniatures in each box, but allows us to initiate additional production runs when there is a demand for it.
At the helm of this astonishing achievement is Vincent Fontaine, a master painter and modeler that has had a number of influential positions in the gaming hobby over the past 15 years. He has worked both as an artist and a lead studio painter, and now brings all his experience to bear as the Art Director at Dust Studio.
Six months each year, Vincent works with the members of a studio that is dedicated to painting the Dust Tactics Deluxe Edition models. He not only personally supervises the work that is done, but he continues to develop and train those painters in order to continually raise the quality of craftsmanship to ever higher standards.
The final results achieved by this unusual hands-on approach are stunning. This is the first time that a hobby gaming company has offered such a high-quality product directly to the players, with master-grade miniatures available out of the box. Place your pre-order on our web store today, and you be among the first to see this remarkable product in person, and experience it for yourself!
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.
I love to paint and so will pass on the pre-painted, even though the figures look awesome.
This Deluxe looks really cool!
That was pretty quick, seems like Deluxe is already sold out
"Of course, this wouldn’t be possible were it not for a very group of miniature painters."
Does this suggest the set is NOT painted in China? Just curious.
I won this at Gen-Con....the set is absolutely beautiful!!!
Very nice already bought my copy tho :)
