Speaking for myself, I am always happy to support the promotion of the period, by whatever methods are effective - Facebook, web forum, website articles, blogging (something I have yet to embrace as I feel my wargaming output is too sporadic to support it), a Journal (when there is material to be di...

Re: Blood Red Skies

First thing I thought when I saw the post was the Weave... I'd be very interested to hear how that works as the US have their work cut out in the opening phase of the war... Japanese pilots with combat experience over China, but flying planes built for a WW1 fighting style - manoeuvre over weight of...

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

I had hoped they'd have been 'in print' in another edition of the journal, but that looks less likely as time goes by...but hey-ho, still ...

I like simplicity of the advantaged/ neutral/ disadvantaged mechanism, reminds me of something from Tac WW2 and a set of air rules derived rom it, using d20s. The lack of relative height is mirrored in other systems, and it does simplify everyth...

Re: Blood Red Skies

Thanks Fred

Would there be any issues posed by dropping a scale to 1/300?

Does it use some sort of bespoke flight stand that is cleverly woven into the rules?

Do you think a player could happily handle more than six planes?

Cheers

Phil
