Im new to Dust and Bolt Action both. Heard of em but never paid attention until recently.
And of course there is a collision underway melting my brain (and potentially my wallet).


Dust has an amazing setting and the artistical theme has just blown my mind! Tank Girl and Metal Gear joined together!
But it seems to have had a rough life and is currently on the verge of launching an entirely new/revamped game.
The rules seems decent and having your forces statted on unit cards fancies me a lot!
The scale, while offering stunning models, has me a bit worried tho. Im interested in the "freeform" gameplay where in the new rules seem to have just about all units normally move at the very minimum 20cm (8").
In many cases much more.
Either the gameplay of Dust seem to be much more mobile then im used to or the game requires a huge table, 8' x 6' at the least!


Then we have Bolt Action. While not as fluid as Dust, it still seem to offer an amazing ruleset with an interesting twist on turn order. Still a lot of fiddly rules to remember though and no unit cards.
BUT, soon they are releasing Konflict 47, the same ruleset but in a setting that seems like a shameless ripoff of Dust. Steampunkish (or dieselpunk as it seems) semi hightech warmachines and infantry duking it out in an ongoing WW2.
And the absolut best part about it, in my opinion, is that while its designed for 28mm it can be played just as well, if not better, in 15mm.
And the designers of the models are launching the entire 15mm line alongside the regular!
This can offer huge battles and tons of cheap terrain on a regular 6-4 table or even a decent sized battle on half that!


Both the new dust and K47 are not yet released so i still have some time to make up my mind, though i would like to get in on some launch deals as i guess they are close at hand.


Ive seen dust getting its fair share of complaints due to its rough life while bolt action (which lays the foundation for K47) generally seems to be celebrated.
Still i wanted to see what people in the "loop" of Dust think about the two games and their future.


And of course, if my concerns about Dust1947 movement range/scale is valid or not.

The new rules for Dust '47 are available for free download on their website. That should give you an idea whether it's for you or not.

I own both.

The cool thing with dust is That you dont have to assemble The miniatures.

Plus you get The stat cards to track damage and Stats.

Not sure, since I am waiting for the printed version, but I believe that they also include rules for the tabletop version.

There's rules for both grids and free-form.
