Battlefield Game late 2015

Most people who read this blog (all 2 of you) know that I am a Dust Warfare games at heart. The mass of dice and the instant death of most units using the Gridles rules of Dust never really interested me but I will have a go if I have an opponent. Late last year I had a visit from a Rockhampton gamer, John Back who brought down his very nice SSU army for a game. John has never played Warfare so we had a fun Battlefield game on my Zverograd Train Statin table. I had had a few games against Terry and they were fun but just not my preferred Dust rules. 

I must say however that the new Dust grid and gridless rules put out this year by Dust Studios is a much poorer cousin and a poor sign of where the game is heading. DS seems to be making a load of new models and tacking the rules onto them afterwards, a pity really as they already had a couple of well produced and supported rulesets. Anyway if I ever play the gridless game again it will be with BFs Battlefield rules and cards. Anyway onto the game pictures.

  1. I love your terrain and conversions. I didn't mind the battlefield rules. I am really disappointed by the new rules and completely agree with your take on it. It's really too bad.
