Unit Forward focuses on Dust Warfare, a fantastic (in more ways than one) wargame by Dust Studio and Fantasy Flight Games. Dust Warfare launched on April 18 2012 and Unit Forward launched on July 1 2012.

Alex, the Editor and site founder, launched the site because he wanted to provide a great community-focused website for the Dust Warfare community. Unit Forward aims to provide useful information, to help bring more people into the fantastic Dust community, and to push the game and community forward.

Article Contributions

Community contributions are welcome, and the site uses a unique article publishing structure to enable this. Certain types of articles go live on given days, but anyone may contribute an article of that type. For example, strategy articles go live on Mondays, and anyone may contribute a strategy article for publication.

Additionally, if you would like to become a resident author on Unit Forward, please get in touch and we’ll sort something out.


The site runs on WordPress, and is hosted at the excellent HawkHost. It is regularly tested in most major browsers.

The site uses HTML5 and CSS3 with fallbacks in place. This means that it’s ready for tomorrow, but is usable today.
