Wings Of War - WWI Dogfights

Absolutely fantastic :)

I've played it twice now and both times it has been immense fun. I am also a big Canvas Eagles fan but the playability of the WoW game system is brilliant :)

The ease at which someone walks into the game is great. Not a simulation and life expectancy is short but speaking as one who has "Bought it with the Baron" and likewise been a "Terror of the Tommies" it is nevertheless a good 'fun' experience.

I am desperately trying to work out how I can convert my 1/144 metal Skytrex planes to work with the plastic miniatures from the system.

It worked! Opened first time, everytime, great stuff.

Glad to be of assistance :)

It must have been all those little GIF's (pictures) stored away with the blogs

There's a WWII version of the game around somewhere, so I'd guess there may soon be rules for bombing escort missions. If not you can always try modify Aeronautica Imperialis from Games Workshop's Forgeworld sub-company.

I've spyed it from afar :)

I hope the simplicity of the system holds true, but I've heard there are throttle settings and the like to master

Likewise the WWI "Giants" looks a bit freakish, the balloon busting is tempting though ;)

I still like Canvas Eagles and think there must be a way to converge the game systems together
