Indeed they are!

I've been on the fence for a long time about Dust Tacitcs/Warfare, to be honest more and more off the fence entirely, but these guys just might make me change my mind. The autogyro looks ridiculous but the walkers make up for it in spades! Whatever happens I'll get a couple of those anyway.

This is great news. Glad to see things heating up for Dust Tactics. As a fan of AT-43, I am so relieved to see Dust Tactics get much better treatment.

Very exciting news. Both a new faction and aircraft are very welcome additions to the game. Can't wait to see the aircraft rules as well as how they affect the tempo of the game.

I was hanging out for the russians but the current pics leave me underwhelmed compared to they did with the Red Blok in AT-43.

I need to see some close up pics of those mechs and helicopter before my wallet open....

BUT still good news that they are here.

It would be good if the top picture was the set you bought, but I expect it will be carved up into lot's of individual sets for you to spend too much on.

OK this chopper thing is some kind of joke.. I know we have a certain "flow" here but it looks just silly, like a toy for a few year old kid... All the rest is fine, colours, troops, just change the damn thing!

I dunno man, it looks pretty much exactly like a fusion of several Soviet helicopters from real life. I rather like it.

Come on! Soviet choppers had their specific body, but it is just hmm fluffy? Too big? I do not know, it just looks like a toy? They could do not toy, not funny loking tanks on legs ! LEGS! So why not make a non funny chopper?

Yep, it is a bit toy like, but I want to see it from other angles before I pan it.

I'm with you on this one, the helicopter just looks silly...too bad.

I sure wish FFG would put out army sets. originally I think the expansions were suppose to be big box expansions, oh well, guess FFG can make more money this way.

The bloated copter look does not bother me so much. There are more than few examples floating around of Soviet vehicles that look less than attractive. I do not think the Reds were so worried about how their enemies perceived the look of their equipment as much as their equipment was cheap to build compared to its effectiveness. The military in the USSR did not always have to have something "sleek" looking to get the Politburo to approve the money for it.
