Based on what I’m reading they’re tying it to both the books as well as the new movie.

Ah, the game where as Atridies faction, I peek at my opponent's card to correctly guess their strength -- then forget that back in the day tied go to the ATTACKER, not the DEFENDER.

Those Sardaukar were the literal worst. Nothing says fearsome like helmets that magnify your nose.

And then the Dune miniseries upped the ante by making them futuristic 16th-century Swiss guard. At least no codpieces...

Modiphius just announced that they have partnered with Gale Force Nine to produce a Dune tabletop role-playing-game.

No details yet.

I actually kind of liked the Swiss Guard Sardaukar in the miniseries.

Swiss Guard were badass, and the style fits the whole "fading renaissance" aura of the Corrino empire Paul is replacing.

Oooh...Zarathud had better buy this so I can play. I got all the other GF9 license games, so it's his damn turn.

Now, if someone would just reboot the Dune 2 RTS pc game.

Very likely even though I do have the original Dune edition. With reprinted cards from a fan upgrade.

My picture of all the Dune characters is still based on the Avalon Hill game, which we bought right after I read the book (and before the David Lynch movie).
