Turning to DUST
I picked it up and found the rules fun and easy to play, especially for a large group like ours. Besides, armored, undead zombie Germans with fricking-lay-zers.
A month or so ago Fantasy Flight games was offering all the DUST merchandise for a whopping 75% off! I dropped $150 and got a load of them.
After the holiday break, I wanted something easy and finally got them out.
The scenario involved the Allies trying to break thru a Axis held village.
Buckets of dice, and buckets of fun. Favorite part involved a huge Allied tank (six legged walky thing) unloaded 23 hits on a not-quite-zombie unit hiding in the woods. They managed to save all but 2. We joked I need to make a piece of terrain that's just stumps to replace the woods.
Side note: I usually do not tolerate unpainted minis on the table except for play tests. But, I know I'll probably never paint these guys, and they have a plastic toy soldier quality (with way better detail) that was acceptable.
