Dust Tactics strategy article posted

Fantasy Flight Games have posted a new Dust Tactics strategy article. From their website:
In the fast-paced battles of Dust Tactics, players have to consider every unit activation carefully. While it might initially look like a good idea to run your Allied Hell Boys at your opponent’s Battle Grenadiers to drench them in fiery doom, where will that leave your Hell Boys later in the round? Will Lara and her Heavy Laser Grenadiers march over to annihilate some of your heaviest hitters? What if your flamethrowers don’t burn the Axis soldiers, the dreaded empty black squares show up on the dice, and the Battle Grenadiers survive to retaliate? What if your Hell Boys move too deep into enemy positions and find themselves surrounded?

Wayland post ROW update

Wayland Games have posted an update on their efforts to continue too sell GW products to countries outside the EU. From their announcement:
Guys, its Rich the boss here. This message is related to the ROW situation and how long it will take to get something moving. We know there is lots of frustration out there about the delays, we can only apologise and seek to explain what is going on. This undertaking is very complicated and as mentioned previously we are about to move warehouses and we don't have unlimited resources to do all this at once at least not properly. The ROW stock requires significant extra space to be allocated to it and so we cannot list the majority until that space is available be that in the UK or elsewhere :). We had hoped this would be quicker than it has been, but the change of new warehouse very close to the move date impacted these efforts. In a detailed survey we found asbestos in the previous target warehouse and reluctantly had to withdraw. However almost immediately we had an alternate and in fact better location. So we have been focussing on getting that location up and running. The building works we are having done are almost complete but its difficult to say the exact completion and handover date.
