Dust Battlefield Unit Assessment: Allies Death Dealers

The Death Dealers are also know as the Ranger Weapon Squad with good reason.  They are armed with one of largest array of weapons.  The shear number of weapon types allows this unit to engage multiple different types of enemy units giving the them unparalleled flexibility on the table.  This flexibility doesn’t come cheap as the Death Dealers are on the more expensive point cost for Soldier 2 squads.  Additionally, they might not quite be be able to completely neutralize enemy targets as well as more specialized squads.  In this article, I will go over the weapons, roles, tactics, and opinions for the Allies Death Dealers.

Bayonets and Brass Knuckles Brigade (Dust Battlefield 150 pt Allies List)

The Bayonets and Brass Knuckle Brigade are a platoon from the United States 7th Infantry who have seen action all over the Pacific and live the Division’s motto: Light, Silent, and Deadly.

Unit Inspection: Allies “Death Dealers” Ranger Weapon Squad

Armed with the widest variety of weapons of any Allied unit in the core rulebook, the Death Dealers are equally capable of taking on both infantry and armor with decent success and a decent cost of Army Points. They even can harm aircraft, just don’t expect them to shoot one down. As the Allies Soldier 2 unit of the Dust Tactics Revised Core Set, many beginning players are likely to have them in their first few army lists.  I think they work well for that as they have the wide variety of weapons for new players to discover whether they want more machine guns (i.e. Recon Boys) or Bazookas (i.e. The Gunners) added to their infantry.
