The world that we knew is gone, the old civilizations cremated in flames of their own incitement…

A status quo had arisen. Each nation fearful at striking out at its fellows for fear of retaliation, of mutual annihilation. Not one of them wished to stand down, to be subjugated, and to be incinerated alone. But in an instant, the precarious balance had crumbled.

Bombs fell, buildings toppled, cities burned, and civilizations were annihilated as weapons of unseen power wrecked havoc across the globe. Titanic ships roamed the seas and giant planes thundered through the skies. The Earth rumbled, the land shook, and the oceans raged as fire fell from the skies and a sea of atomic fire swept across the globe. Over two thousand years of human progress was reduced to ruin.

Entire cities were leveled with thermo-nuclear weapons; those not erased were left to waste in a new world. Plagues born from the infernal cocktails of biological weaponry swept across continents murdering without quarter and forever altering those who resisted their effects. The land was polluted beyond restoration. The rivers were choked with acid; forests not burnt grew into virtually inhospitable jungles of alien flora. The sky was chocked with an impenetrable cloud of poisonous ash and sulfur.

The devastation was total, the planet doomed to extinction. It seemed impossible that anyone could survive. But out of the ruins, fragments of a few proud empires continue to wage their perpetual wars among each other and ideologies anew…

To begin the perpetual tread towards extinction once more…

-World in Ruins Introduction


Pretty big update this time since I missed one for last week. Also for those waiting for their Earth Reborn set, we will be doing them next weekend!

First up is a City Gaming board 4x4 for Dust Warfare and our soon to come game, World in Ruins. I'm going to try to get as much detail in this board as possible including flooring and lots of rubble. The streets are wider than I had liked since it needs to fit a Super Heavy from Dust.

Original Plan marked with tape on the floor:


For Scale:

All was built from only 5 boxes of Operation Cerebus:

The Dreadfleet games are really close to being finished, most of the terrain still needs to be painted. Tom is without a camera so unfortunately I cannot get a picture of those yet.

Next is Dust Tactics, finished a Core Set and an German Army.


Here are next month's Dust Tactics orders:

Sculpt pictures for our game World in Ruins, for more pictures, please visit the Dakka link, it has sculpts, concepts, and background:

Here is the Thread:

Billy won Best Army at Astronomi-Con 2012 Dallas, Texas with this beautiful Ork army:

I won first place for my Alien Suns Shocktroopers from Wargames Factory:


Also we are running a special on Dust Tactics painting of the new SSU Faction in April, each squad is $45 (models included!). Here is a comparison to the Premium Standard of FFG for only $5 more:
