Episode 29 - A Gothenburg Episode
« on: February 02, 2019, 09:06:01 pm »

https://dustwarjournals.com/2019/02/02/episode-29-a-gothenburg-episode/

Three tired Vikings gather, in the winter of early 2019, to discuss Dust 1947! In this episode, we talk about the newest releases and previews, answer a whole lot of listener questions, and talk about the potential future of the rule set for the game.

No new ruleset. A rewritten rulebook, yes, eventually down the line, to update and integrate the errata.

Sure! Here's  a few of the addition to my industrial table.

I call it The Reactor House. The upper part is an MDF kit that I modify a bit, while the house under the towers is built from scratch using foam board and plasticard mostly.

I don't think creating a consolidated rule book is that much of an ask.
If I were doing it I would start with the base game rule book, strip out all the fluff, units, and squads.
Make the changes to any text updated in the errata.
Add text boxes with the FAQ content in the relevant sections.
Add any additional rules from the expansions and FAQ.
Then fix the formatting.
It should really only take a couple days.

Honestly, if I had access to digital copies of all the rule books I would do it myself.

I am working on a "carrier deck board" as it happens.  Still designing the control tower, etc, but I made a custom image a while ago that I had printed on a mat (6x4'). I made the texture using stock images of WW2 era carrier decks. Here are some samples, PM me if you'd like a link to the high-rez file.

That would be great. I believe I'm not the only one who would like those rules to stay constant for a quite some more years (as they're really the best ones up to now) and would apreciate an updated rulebook where all developments from additional rules, Skills, Platoons , Errata and FAQ where found together.

Not sure how you plan on going on, some games incorporate "seasons" in their rules publishings, Dust could at one Point make the Transition to 1948, which would be an opportune Moment for such a revised Edition with the new year in the title. an alternate route might indeed be a "streamlined" Rules Only Edition every now and then as dropdeadcriminal suggested. maybe always before a new campaign arc starts (like now, before Paradise Lost). So there would still be several years between Releases and all other Editions and sourcebooks would Keep their relevance. Not sure which solution would be better Marketing wise.

I'm calling my Reactor House done now, just in time for Dust Nordic 2019  :)

Here are a few more photos in "chronological" order:

bloody hell, your terrain pieces never cease to amaze me. your love for cool details is one of the things, putting your stuff apart from the vast majority of terrain builders out there. I  mean, technical drawings and a productivity chart inside an tabletop wargame terrain piece? you're the best kind of total nutjob.

Thanks guys!

Thanks for this great compliment!

I believe that a few small details can make a piece go from Ok to good, or from good to great. The thing is: the signs, charts etc. were by far the easiest and quickest part to make and without them it wouldn't look half as cool. To me, a few such details makes the game more immersive and gives a "realistic" feel to it.

Also, I love when people play on my terrain and suddenly discover some detail that they hadn't noticed before. And I love when they have a laugh because something funny happens, like using a flame thrower right next a No Smoking sign and stuff like that :D
