New release: Heavy Laser Grenadier Squad

Alongside the Wehrmacht, the Blutkreuz Korps also uses the latest body armors available to the Axis to field units of their own version of the famous schwer SturmGrenadiere. Officially designated as schwer LaserGrenadiere -or Heavy Laser Grenadiers- these are the “larger” brothers of the Laser Grenadiers, the shock troops of the Korps. These men are tasked to go in even tougher situations, combat zones where Zombies and Apes only won’t cut it, but where regular infantry is just not enough. Their schwer SturmLaser, or Heavy Assault Laser, can cut through almost anything but the heaviest armored vehicles and it shreds infantry. A dreaded sight on any battlefield, the Heavy Laser Grenadiers are among the deadliest soldiers on the planet.

Different variants built on this chassis have been in service of the Axis Army since 1941.

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
