I tried downloading the "DuneComplete-V1.1" from this site but it's missing many things. I've been able to cobble together pretty much everything I need except for:

Battle Wheels
Storm Marker
Storm Movement Markers

Can anybody provide any suggestions on where I can get these? Anybody else have problems with the Dune Complete PDF?

Thanks!

All the required files are available here. I am pretty sure the wheel is in that complete package, but check the images for a wheel and a storm marker.

You don't need anything special for the storm marker or movement chits. The wheels are definitely in the files section. But even if they ain't, it's just a wheel with numbers...

Re: Trying to get the stuff to make my own game - can't get
I looked all through the downloads and couldn't find those last three things...unless they are named something completely different than what they are. I tried downloading that complete package, but it's missing the same files I can't find anywhere else!

Part of the problem is I have no idea how big the storm marker is supposed to be (how much of the map does it cover?) How many or what the numbers (are there numbers?) on the storm movement...and I don't even know how many numbers are on the battle wheel!

I have never played Dune before, and the rule book shows vague pictures and the contents don't provide details...

Try here:

http://www.sorvan.com/games/dune/

This is in the LINKS section on the BGG dune page. It should have everything. The Storm marker should fit into the widest part one pie segment on the map. There are 5 storm markers, numbered 1-5 that need to have blank (or the same) backs.

oh, and I have a nice wheel that I made from scratch but I haven't had a chance to upload the PDF files yet. I will sometime soon.

I saw some photos recently added of another that someone made (check in the image gallery). The 'circle' is amde of several straight edges for easier cutting. There's no files, just hi-rez jpgs in the gallery I think.

Thank you, I did find the battle wheel template in the pics section...I never thought to look there.

I have been to that webpage before and that's where I got a bunch of my stuff before I found the complete download...but even that page doesn't have the battle wheels or the storm marker stuff...

The Battlewheels are on pages 37-40 in the "DuneComplete-V1.1" pdf. The Storm Marker and Storm Movement Markers are on page 37.

I've just completed my Dune set (photos to post when the glue dries) and I'm hoping to post the complete updated version as a pdf, but it compliles alot of other peoples work. I will send you the wheel and storm marker files, but they are adapted for the board posted by Davestar2 - find in the files

Any thing else drop me a line.

Chris

Chris,

As others have mentioned, they are in there, you may just have overlooked them in amongst all the other pages of items (lots of bits). Having recently finished my own DIY Dune game, unless you are a real stickler for authenticity I'd recommend using Goldenturkey's much easier to cut out combat wheel (image 161277) and hex leaders (images 160901 and 160902).

The storm marker (a 2" cresent) and the storm movement markers (six penny sized circles) are brown and located together on one of the Battle Wheel sheets. The storm marker should only be large enough to "cap" the storm zone affected. Image 157707 should give you the proportions.

I did end up downloading those battle wheels that Goldenturkey posted, I think they're great.

I apologize for causing some confusion re: the DuneComplete download. I understand that it does contain everything, however the file is corrupted (or my computer has problem with it) b/c I've downloaded it three times and what I get is the rules and many, many pieces, but I also get about 7 or 8 pages of GRAY stuff: white pages with big gray squares and rectangles...nothing else. So this is what I meant when I said it was "missing" stuff...

Strange. Let me know if you still have trouble and I'll try and break up the PDF into individual pages for you.

You may need to obtain a more up-to-date version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. It's free to do so.
