I was told by a reader at BoLS that the leaked 6th ed 40K rules were in fact the Dust Warfare rules.
Can anyone confirm this? If so, that is very interesting as Andy Chambers is one of the two writers of the game. http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite.asp?eidm=173
If so, this does imply that perhaps Mr. Chambers was possibly connected to the leak as a really smart, if slightly unethical, way to bring a lot of attention to his rule set by riding on the wave of 40K enthusiasts. Please bear in mind that that is strictly me speculating there, and not based on fact.
The rule set was largely met with enthusiasm from my web ramblings. There were a few dissenting voices, but in general the rules were liked. I personally really liked them.
The Dust Warfare miniatures are awesome too, and get ready for this shocker: reasonably priced. Yeah, reasonably priced.
Also, they come assembled and primed in colors that match the army they correlate to.
The game looks pretty dang cool, and I am finding myself tempted to give it a go.
But if in fact that leaked PDF was in fact the rules for Dust Warfare, then I am even more intrigued as that looks like a really fun game. And well done on the guerrilla marketing!
If anyone has played Dust Warfare and can confirm or deny this, or has any other info on the topic, let us know!
