    Default Cold Wars 2017

    An early heads up for Cold Wars, March 16 - 19 ,2017.

    I have just submitted three Wings games. Friday 4-7 will be a battle over Verdun, 8-10 will be Italians and Austrians over the Adriatic, Saturday 6-9 will be a WW2 US attack on Rabaul. (I might be running a couple of these at Origins too if accepted.)

    Time to think about Cold Wars again...it's only two weeks away! I hope to see some Aerodrome members. As you can see above I am running 3 battles between Friday and Saturday, so if anyone is attending there should hopefully be a time where you can come and fly.

    Your scenarios are bound to be spiffing, Peter! I look forward to seeing some pics if you're able to take some as you run them. Have a fun time!

    All the best,
    Matt

    Matt, I'll do my best to take some photos.

    Bob, look forward to meeting you.

    I must look at the PEL to see if there are any other Wings games going on.

    Last shout out for Cold Wars. I'll be heading down Thursday morning, 7 1/2 hour ride if all goes well. Luckily the storm blew through Tuesday so all should be clear.

    Have a safe trip and a good time.
    I'd love to go, but even with being on vacation this week, budgetary constraints (and domestic bliss) said to stay home

    Karl, at least you are near a good core of Wings pilots so you don't have to go long distance. You do have a serious Wings trip coming up in September If I recall.
    I do like going to the cons running and playing games but when the drive is 7+ hours ....oh yeah, Origins is almost on the horizon too. 14+ hours.

    Back from Cold Wars a few hours ago. Had a great time. Met some old friends, made some new friends and had a great game. Teaticket (Peter) ran 3 games but I only played in the Raid on Rubal game. Great game and good time. Many KUDOS to Peter for the way he ran the game and effort he put into it. I am sure he will have the AAR photos to post. To show the type of people you meet:
    3 of us did ACW reenacting and one was at the same reenactment as me. Another was in the same Army unit (ASA) as I was and also did ACW. Peter met a friend of mine and they were in a few reenactments together (although on different sides).
    Those of you going to ORIGINS make sure that you get into one of Peters games. You will have a good time.

    Way cool, thanks! Somewhere I have a few the elves converted . . . .

    Very interesting; looks like they were hitting land targets. kind of wondering what target would be more efficient to hit with a 75mm shot rather than a cluster of bombs or para-frags.

    You should have been at the game we played. First question one player had was about para bombs. In your wheelhouse now Peter.

    Maybe you could call this a precursor of the AC130. Looks like a training video. No FLAK and nothing on the ground. Target might be ships of just hitting the airstrip/runway.

    Cold Wars over and done. Got to put a face to a name in Bob. Great to meet you and you handled that P-38 like an ace. Funny that the 3 of us did ACW reenacting and were at the same events, small world.

    Photos of the 2 games will get posted as soon as I can get the photos together. One gamer is going to email me the ones he took.

    Oh boy, now I have to get at least one more B-25 to modify for a 75!

    That's a good reason to consider getting a set of Merit models 1/200" scale B-25's, you can do 4!

    Peter it was so funny that a friend, who sends me these things all the time, happened to send that to me last night. The video fell into the game we played.

    Timing is everything!

    We'll have to try a similar scenario vs Japanese shipping when I get the 75s. I looked at the Merrit and I think they are a smidge larger than ARES. I may get some AIM for this project.

    Just sent David and order for some B-24's. He has decals for the 320th BS so have to look into that. I also asked Kevin if he could set for LADY BE GOOD/WITCHCRAFT and DIAMOND LIL.
