Wings of War

Right after New Year we gathered to play Wings of War, a game easy, fast and fun to play to start off with this 2011; but I could not post it until now as my PC melted down after nine years of loyal service.

The Richthofen's red Fokker I own belongs to the first serie of the game wich came without pilot, so I decided to put one and took one old GW's Epic Imperial Guard trooper and painted it like a WWI pilot; the scarf was done with a tiny piece of paper.

One moment during a game. Richthofen in peril!
We managed to play three games during the evening in which I was quickly shoot down in all of them, and then I played a solo game trying to destroy a balloon, but my Nieuport 16 missed all its rockets and then was shot down again by the AA.
Next day I encouraged my six years old son to play a simple game, and he enjoyed it a lot and was willing to play again another day, even though I shot down his plane!

Wings of War is an excellent game as it is very easy to learn, fast to play, miniatures are already painted and there is no need of terrain as you can play on
any flat surface.


  1. Looks like a great game. It's so cool that you added a pilot and, above all, a scarf -- an excellent touch!

  2. Wings of War is an excellent game. We played it last night and had great fun.

  3. I love Wings of War. Great little game.

  4. Yes, WoW is an excellent and very cleverly desiged game.
    I hope to hold many games with my son in a near future.

  5. Neato scarf, I'll have to steal that idea now.
