Dakka Jet!

I recently finished painting up this Dakka Jet.  Just in time for the start of 6th edition!  With some of the anticipated changes in the rule system, I'm sure that my usual Ork list will need to be altered.  Hopefully this flyer will be a fun addition.  9 twin lined shots per turn, and 18 on the Waaagh! turn sounds really cool.  Anyways, this model was a lot of fun to paint.  Being an ork vehicle, I wanted it to have a very dirty, weathered feel to it.

Dust Warfare

So my gaming group decided to give Dust Warfare a try.  At this point I've been able to play 3 games.  I have to say that I think this system is a really cool alternative to our usual system, 40k.  Many of the game mechanics are brilliant, especially the tactical use of suppression.  The Dust miniature line is absolutely beautiful and surprisingly easy to paint to a good standard.  My main complaint is that troop miniatures are made with a rubbery plastic that easily warps.  Hopefully, Fantasy Flight will continue to support this line with new miniatures and expansions!
