Covered with lush green vegetation. Rich soil and soft

climate allows for a variety of agricultural

work. Industrial and technological development has produced

a great contribution to the prosperity of the Caladans.

As one of the Great Houses of the Empire, House Atreides

known for thousands of years for its long tradition of fair and

reasonable management. They rule the faithful, industrious and peaceful

people. Noble and wise rulers, the Atreides inspire

love from his subjects. According to the latest reports, the army,

the Atreides fortifications and vehicles are in top fighting shape.

Our sources report that the Atreides military campaign on

Dune is controlled by the prominent mentat Kirill. As expected,

The Atreides have taken a wait-and-see attitude and have not yet

attacked the positions of other Houses, despite the fact that they successfully

defended against enemy raids, sabotage and larger

operations. Being naturally honest, the Atreides tried to achieve

their goals through negotiation and diplomacy, strategies do not

capable of bringing success on Dune.

coalition of wealthy families united by a common desire for big

wealth. Ordos are not too tormented by conscience; their power

based on sabotage and terrorism. The status of the Ordos as

one of the Great Houses is supported by their colossal

wealth, despite a long history of manipulation,

betrayal and deceit.

In House Harkonnen, status isn’t awarded, it’s earned. If a

subordinate kills his boss, he gets his place and

respect. Their war machine is constantly changing, behind it is practically

ki is impossible to follow.

Our sources say House on Dune’s strategy is being dictated by

mutable mentat Radnor. Like a real Harkonnen, Radnor achieved

his position by killing his predecessor and mentat teacher

Marco. We do not know how much confidence he enjoys with his

the people and the House he serves. The main efforts of the Harkonnen

Dune were aimed at expanding the military presence. We

doubt that they intend to actually collect

Spice for the Emperor. They appear to be convinced of their

the ability to simply conquer other Houses. Lust for power combination

By choosing the ATTACK command, you can attack military

What is hiding under these sandy hills? You may be expected

the following surprises: Spice deposits, hidden credit cards, abandoned

vehicles, enemy troops in ambush, etc.

How to find out what is hidden under the hill? Can be directed to

him his military unit or shoot into the hill. If you

sent their troops there, and under the hill there were deposits

Spice, then your part will be destroyed, and fresh Spice will scatter

along the surface. If you fire on the hill under which you were

credit cards are buried, they will simply disappear. So what needs to be decided

which approach should be used in the study


Team Formation

How to create a team? First, choose one of the military

units and give her the “MOVE” command. Specify as a target

another unit. Then the first will reach the second and attach

behind. Now choose on the map the destination of the second unit,

and the first will follow her as if on a leash until

will receive a new command from you.

Capturing Enemy Structures

How to capture an enemy object? First, it can do

only Light or Heavy Infantry. Second, indicator

This object’s damage should be in the RED area. To

to capture the object, you need to send the infantry directly to it with the command

“MOVEMENT”. If you send infantry to the object before

its Indicator will turn red, then this military unit will explode and

will damage the object.

What happens when an object is captured? He becomes one of

your structures. If you have captured the plant, then it will be able to produce

for you all those machines and equipment that he produced,

being under the control of the enemy. This tactic allows you to

those special weapons that your House cannot produce.

Certain objects such as KTP, I.C., Palaces, Outposts and

Barracks cannot be captured. They must be destroyed. Be careful

because some Houses mine their buildings in case of capture. These

objects explode immediately after capture or after some time.


What can you do if the Sandworm is eating your cars?

They eat anything in the sand, so try your best

keep your technique on the rocks. Can also be specified as

the object of attack is distortion in the sand if you damage enough

Worm (half), then it will crawl away forever. (On each card –

one to three worms). Remember that it is harder to destroy the worm,

than the Harkonnen Destroyer.

Number of military units

Why does the message sometimes appear: “While producing

impossible”? The fact is that you can effectively manage only

a limited number of military units (about 30). Until they are

destroyed any of the existing vehicles or infantry

connections, you won’t be able to produce new units. In that

case, you can attack and destroy some of your parts,

to then produce others.

Good luck in the fight for Dune!
