DUST Allied Blackhawk Light Assault Walker COMPLETE


One of my hobby goals for this year is to get into a new miniatures game. After much gnashing of teeth trying to decide, I've made my mind up and am giving Dust: Tactics (and Dust: Warfare when it arrives) a try. Tonight I detailed up the Blackhawk walker that came with the core set- mostly just some black pin washes for detail and a bit of weathering. For those who don't know, DUST Allied miniatures all come undercoated with a US green color, along with some basic unit markings- damn handy as a start. The only thing I had to repaint was the PIAT launcher pods, at least based on the paint job featured on the unit card.

Next week I'll start playing games, and I'll be working on my Soviet army for next month's Bagration campaign. For now, DUST is a nice change of pace that I'm looking forward to getting into more...

  1. Nice work! I have seen the minis and love the look of them. I've been tempted to pick up some myself once all the chaos of my French Project is over.

  2. Agreed, really nice work there! Nice improvement over the primed model supplied in the box set.

    Am looking forward to Dust:Warfare too. Should be good seeing as Andy Chambers wrote it.

    More shots of the walker please. One is never enough :)
