DUST Studio: Schließung
Für DUST zeichnet sich ein unerwartetes Ende ab.
WHAT A SAD DAY!
Dear Dusters, please know that you will be forever in my heart, thank you for your support and friendship over so many years!
After an incredible twelve years run, Dust Studio has ceased its operations. In the past couple of years, producing the beautiful miniatures and model kits that you know and love has become increasingly difficult, and it is now impossible for us to continue. There are many factors that lead us here: increased costs in shipping, labor and raw material were the most important. Increased import taxes between several regions were another. And on top of that the pandemic, that has greatly disrupted our operations in China.
Of course it’s a sad day for us, but at the same time we are very proud and happy of what we accomplished. Thanks to you, we managed to build an awesome community of players, collectors and enthusiasts around the World. We brought Weird World War II to new heights, and are sure that this setting has a bright future.
The last resources that were at our disposal were put to produce and distribute the last wave of miniatures released. This allowed to complete the Imperial Japanese Navy Bloc and flesh out the Mercenaries, so they too could be played on their own. It also allowed to achieve what we had planned for the Mythos forces.
Dust‘ background story ended with Paradise Lost: the end of one World, announcing the beginning of a new one. This is now the story that you will have to tell. For even if we close shop, that doesn’t mean the World of Dust will end. It will stay alive as long as you will be playing, painting, dreaming about it.
We thank everyone of you for all the great memories we shared over the years. Happy gaming and stay Dusty!
Paolo & Olivier.
