To what would you guys set the AP for OTTO? ( http://www.dustgame.com/products_d.php?nid=14&id=179 ) Here is the stats card for him that Dust Studio included:



It's armor class 4, life 4, movement 1.

I'm aware he isn't tournament legal, but I still want to use him when playing casual. This far I have slapped 45 AP on him. Is that too harsh/soft?

Edit: Based on a discussion in FFG Dust forums where Hot Dog & Hans are used as references I will set the AP to 33 while playing Otto.

The OTTO is actually a captured and converted Russian Walker.

I agree. The allies are Lame-O compared to the Axis units. Hopefully that is about to change- the Allied heavy crawler looks bad as hell..

I actually overall like the look of the Allied units better. They look much more like World War II units and less like Star Wars units. And I agree (I think) with the above poster - the Allied Heavy Walkers are badass. I think they're much cooler than the Axis ones.

Personally I prefer the looks of the Axis. Not sure why. I agree Allies are more "realistic" but don't see realism as one of the reasons for why anyone would play Dust Tactics - on the contrary.

That said, I think it's nice there is a distinct difference in look between the factions, and am looking forward to seeing the alien faction as well as the Soviet eventually. As long as there is difference in look when it comes to enough of each factions minis, I'm all happy and think that the diversity adds to the game.

I ordered the OTTO just because it looked good. I hadn't even seen it's stat card and at the time it wasn't even certain that I'd get one from Dust Studio. Luckily, I did. Enjoying the game both the play and aesthetics is nice, especially now that I got a chance even though I'm not as lucky as many of you guys that master painting.

As for Allies that look cool I picked up Wildfire for that reason alone - great looking piece with Pilot and all. The jet-guys in the revised core set are also gorgeous, as is the new heavy command squad (Corps Officers). All very nice looking Allies...
