PostSubject: Wings of War   Fri May 21, 2010 4:43 pm

anyone played this game from Fantasy Flight Games?

Wings of War

I got into this ages ago when I was looking for a flight sim type game. and Orginally was planning on doing only the WWII planes but boy was I wrong.

I got to talking to the guys at the Wings of War Aerodrome [Btw: I am GreyWolf on there]

and before I knew it I was getting into the WWI planes. Haven't touched the WWII series yet and not sure if I will.As the WWI version uses cards to represent damage [eg you draw a random damage card each time you shoot at another plane 0-10 damage + an explosion card<----instant death]

whilst the WWII version uses "chips/tokens" plus they have different set ups eg fuel consumption, ammo restrictions etc etc....



the planes are pre-painted and are 1/144th scale for the WWI and 1/200th scale for the WWII planes.

have a look see what you think....

Cheers

Interesting... I don't have time to try it though... consumed by Death Squads. I even retired from 40k (but THAT was because of the Blood Angels' Codex!)

Well, this is not really my thing, but I looked at their site and it's properly a fun game, and I mean, who doesn't want to be the red baron in his plane... I mean seriously... Very Happy

Oh and Mord, what is it that you don't like with making the newest army the most competitive on, just because BA got a flying land raider... that can carry a Furioso Dred, that also happen to be the worst invention since the vortex grenade of 2. edition... I really don't see that much of a problem... Blood Angel Blood Angel Blood Angel

LOL

what about those dam collisions..... at least twice a game I will crash into another plane....
in one game my brother-inlaw crashed his allied plane three times into my fighters.he finally got himself blown up.... but after taking at least one of mine and damaging two others.

still a dam fun game to play. really what to get some of the skytrex Gotha bombers....

they look pretty.....

I have watched the fly boys movie heaps dam good movie. well the fight scenes are great. didn't like the main actor [that guy who played the green goblins son in Spiderman]

I am trying to save up some $$ for the balloons and also the new Deluxe box set due out in July...new re-paints and english rules....

how many planes you got in your collection?

Cheers

Yeah i know what you mean with the actor. but i had a good amount of planes but during a move i lost them or they ended up broken, so all i got now is 4 maybe out of 20. I haven't heard about the deluxe box what comes in it. Also it'd be neat if they'd combine tide of iron and wings of war into one some how.

here is the info regarding the first Deluxe box set that sold out before any one cold get a copy. [plus this was never released in english speaking countires.[eg canada got french versions.]



Quote :
Introductory set for Wings of War - Miniatures.

The Deluxe Set contains the basic rules, altitude rules, additional rules for bombing/strafing, several extra scenarios, two "A" and one "B" damage decks, a full set of player aids (4 game boards, many counters and 2 rulers) and the following 4 planes (including card, maneuver deck, and stand for each). This set has not been released in English:

Plane Pilot Country
Fokker DR. I Manfred von Richthofen Germany
Spad XIII Francesco Baracca Italy
Sopwith Camel William G. Barker Great Britain
Albatros D.Va Ernst Udet Germany

the main difference with the above quoted box set and the new are:

Rules are in ENGLISH!!!!!
the 4 planes you get in the set have been given a new paint job.

should be great addition to my collection.

Cheers
LGW
