Welcome to the world of Dust Tactics, where a chance meeting with alien technology in the Antarctic has forever altered the course of history. Set in an alternate 1940s reality where this alien technology fuels gigantic machines of war, the forces of the Axis and Allies clash over rare mineral deposits that will inevitably decide the fate of the world…
With our recent announcement that Dust Tactics command squads are now available at your local retailer, the battle for technological dominance has reached a fevered pitch! But remember: while Dust Tactics offers some of the most finely crafted miniatures in the industry, Dust Tactics Premium Edition takes quality to whole new level. Every model is a stunning reproduction of Dust Studio’s original, exceptional work. This means that 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.
To coincide with the release of the The Boss and Kommandotrupp, we’re pleased to offer the premium pre-painted versions of these versatile squads through Fantasy Flight Collector!
Featuring highly trained soldiers, the Axis Sturmgrenadiere Command Squad (also known as Kommandotrupp) and the the Allied Rangers Command Squad (also known as The Boss) bring a range of abilities to the fight. And with the masterfully painted premium editions, you’ll be immersed in the explosive action.
But these eye-catching miniatures are only the most recent additions to an impressive and ever-expanding selection of premium units. Looking for heavier firepower? The multiple weapon configurations of the Allied Medium Assault Walker and the Axis Medium Panzer Walker have been separated into seven distinctly painted miniatures, ensuring an emphasis on the individual paint schemes and character of each unit and maximizing the aesthetic and thematic distinctiveness that fans of the premium edition expect.
With your forces gathered and ready for combat, you have only to embark on your mission. The premium edition of Operation “Cyclone” delivers supplemental rules for artillery, amphibious assaults, and much more! Also included are fantastically painted versions of Master Sergeant Rosie Donovan and the fearsome Axis officer Manfred Kreuzer.
Rosie Donovan is the brilliant engineer who designed the Allies’ first combat walker, and her mechanical know-how makes her a constant asset on the battlefield. Her Tank Head repair skill lets her fix damaged tanks... but don’t underestimate her destructive prowess. She has personally adapted her massive bazooka to take down enemy walkers with a single shot! For the Axis, Manfred Kreuzer is a defensive powerhouse. This hearty soldier boasts five health, meaning he’s able to protect his men longer than any other hero. What’s more, his Assault skill and unlimited Panzerfaust give him exceptional tactical flexibility. Both miniatures are beautifully painted and ready to lead their men into combat.

A special note: This Fantasy Flight Collector specialty product is produced in small batch quantities that, along with various other production factors and costs, mean we are unable to offer this line of figures through regular distribution and retail channels. Retailers wishing to carry these figures should contact our sales department for more information.
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.
Oh that is good news can't wait to complete my collection of premium miniatures!!
The Premium Core set has been available a few times, in and out, throughout the last 12 months. We are currently out of stock again, but are expected more stock in the next few months.
Still wondering when the base premium edition is coming out
Hey Jeremy! Good to see you here!
I just dropped $300+ on all these, and I still didn't buy one of the tanks I wanted....I love these things. Finally...PRE-PAINTED, I knew I waited for a reason.
