Army Point Totals
« on: July 29, 2019, 02:48:02 pm »

So I was inspired by the recent podcasts. I keep an excel list of my models. I decided to add the points to a column and see what the totals were for each faction.
Some notes: I glue my models, so I cannot swap weapons, so the points are fixed for most of my units. This represents nearly a decade of collecting and playing so don't mock my addictions.

Allies   : 1601
Axis     : 1858
IJN       : 166
Merc    : 152
SSU     : 1573
Myth    : 0

I was surprised that Axis was so much higher,  especially since I prefer to play SSU.
SSU and Allies have an average point value of ~10.7 while Axis is ~10.4 (IJN is ~13 and ME ~8). So that makes the Axis lead even stranger.
I think maybe it comes to verity of units where Allies have about 125, SSU about 110 and Axis about 145. I tend to try to get at least 1 of everything so I can try it out.
(the "actual" numbers for averages and totals may be off some. I am going from the app as well as the dustgame website for what are considered units and their costs, but each place seems to be incomplete).

That's a lot of stuff  :o

I play way to many different games(8) to carry more than I already do to the game store. our group has found that about 150 points is a great game scale for dust on a 6X4 table. we sometimes go bigger or smaller but 150 has become the "standard".

Our dedicated SSU player has somewhere in the 300 point range if you add in his bunkers. I have about 225 for both allies and axis with a small SSU force of about 100.
miniature market has a great deal on the combat engineer walkers for $9 each so I got 7 of them since they are mostly 7 ap in the game.
