New release: AB-43 Lanciafiamme – Kondor Pattern

The Autoblinda 43 (AB-43, Armored Car model 1943) of the Regio Esercito (Royal Army) is a light armored vehicle designed for combat recon operations and long range patrols in desert environments. Different variants built on this chassis have been in service of the Axis Army since 1941. Model 43 is equipped with a powerful flamethrower, lanciafiamme in Italian, hence the nickname of this vehicle. It is presented here in its Kondor Camo Pattern, as used in the Middle-East circa 1947.

The first scenario for Endless War is now live

Dust USA just revealed the first custom scenario for the Endless War global campaign. If you’ve signed up, you should find an email in your inbox pointing you to the PDF.

The scenario is called “Final Destination” (in reference to the movie franchise perhaps?). It features a lot of terrain elements and a standard size map (2 mats for gridded, 180×120 cm for gridless).

To win, you simply have to destroy the opposing army, or have destroyed the most points at the end of 8 rounds.

What do think of this first campaign scenario? Let us know in the comments, or by email to dustwarjournals@gmail.com!

New release: Heavy Grenadier Assault Squad

Each member of the unit carries not one but two squad sized support weapons, the Maschinengewehr 44 Zwilling (twin-linked MG44Z) taking advantage of the incredible strength their armor gives. Thanks to the sheer firepower of this dual weapon, these Heavy Grenadiers can take on any infantry and light ground targets and most aircraft with deadly force and accuracy.

Dust War Journals turns 1!

Yes, it’s our first anniversary here at Dust War Journals! Our first episode went out a year ago today.

First off, we would like to thank all our listeners and supporters. This show is made for you, and without you it would be nothing.

Secondly, I (Johannes) would like to thank Magnus and Ludvig for joining this crazy venture. The show got a million times better when you decided to lend your voices to it!

And finally, a big thank you to Dust Studios. To Paolo, to Olivier, to Vincent, and everyone else involved in bringing this great game to us.

You might be wondering, is there any way I can help Dust War Journals celebrate this occasion? Yes there is! The simplest way is writing a review of the show on our iTunes page (use the iOS or desktop app).

Thanks again, and we’ll see you on the battlefield!
