New Wings of War Revised Deluxe Set is My Next Game Purchase

I am a big fan of “Wings of War” and Nexus Games has  a new version of the basic set on the way.  Oddly, I never bought the basic set when it first came out. I just bought some planes and used a friend’s basic set for the rules. After two major “Wings of War” battles at Gen Con and countless skirmishes at home, I now feel the need to acquire the new Deluxe set.  The rules and cards are nice, but I do not have any of the included models, especially the “Red Baron” on my airfield. This item is a very easy sell for me.

If you are not familiar with this game, I highly recommend you check it out. Wings of War combines dead simple tabletop miniature mechanics with fast-paced aerial combat.  If nothing else, the miniatures have great utility for early twentieth century  role-playing campaigns or even steampunk. Might make a fun “Call of Cthulhu” encounter…

I leave you with a few shots of the included  miniatures.

Last, but far from least is the Red Baron himself!

    Too bad a licensing deal with the Charles Schulz estate is probably way outside their budget.

    Probably true. Too bad because then you could use that cool “Snoopy vs The Red Baron” song from the 1970s.
