Armoury Games Game Day 1-30-2011

Pics from our Game Day at Armoury Games in Pickerington, Ohio
  1. Here we see a familiar cow-spotted SE.5a immediately homing in on the tale of a strange looking tiny red aircraft...
  2. Some of you may remember our "New Guy" Eric, who at our first tournament managed to pull the dreaded boom card a total of 3 different times... and...
  3. And the Furball gets even thicker as two new aircraft join the fight, piloted by Columbus Flight's toddwf a.k.a., and his buddy Jim (soon to be...
  4. Toddwf's Snipe closing in on my bovine tail... (Beware getting too close to the rear of one of those beasts Todd!!! Beware!!! )
  5. Meanwhile, Snoopy is flying off in the distance, touring the French skies...
  6. The Furball stayed nasty for the first half of our afternoon... with "Baronvontigger" in the DR.1 , "New Guy" in the less "colorful" of the two...
  7. As we zoom in, you will note that "New Guy" Eric is teaching "Even Newer Guy" Jim a valuable Air Combat Lesson: Never attempt an Immelman while...
  8. Poor Jim is also taking some lead to the cockpit from his buddy "Toddwf" in the Snipe. Crystal has manged to convince Snoopy to sneak up on Todd's...
  9. ...and now we get to Jim's painful lesson...  
Smoke has begun to pour from Jim's beat up DVII... Note that this has all taken place on Phase One of...
  10. So as we see... on Phase One Jim took minor, but crippling, damage to all of the Fokker's control surfaces, and of course was blinded by the smoke....
  11. And then we get to Phase Three. Eric has maintained his field of fire on Jim, and as you can see Jim has suffered what is close to being one of the...
  12. Here we have Todd in a brand new Ufag, and Jim and I flying escort in Fokker DVII's. We set out on our approach to the enemy lines... 
And now we get...
  13. ...And here we find WWI Flying Ace Snoopy (Crystal), leading her talented wingmen Tim (in the Spad) and Eric (in his trusty SE.5a) on a Combat Air...
  14. The Cowman's (...that's me) Fokker finally draws blood on Snoopy's doghouse as our pilots tangle over the front lines...
  15. Sadly, the hero of our tale gets blasted once again, and this time Snoopy's Sopwith Camel DH goes down. It was reported later that the pilot was last...
  16. ...And the battle rages on...  
A few turns later we find our combatants in the heat of it... Todd has taken the Ufag and made his first run,...
  17. Here we witness "New Guy" Eric zooming in from nowhere, to exact a bit of smoking revenge on "The Cowman" (...that's me again) for downing his long...
  18. "The Cowman" (I'm not gonna say it this time... you should know by now) holds up the death blow card of doom as he watches his beautiful Fokker...
  19. After a bit of time spent making a few WoW purchases from the Store...  
...we decided to take what time we had left and try to quickly get in one...
  20. Just one turn later we see Crystal, having kept her Ufag in the air, with her rear gunner spitting lead all the way as Jim's Snipe returned the same....
  21. Tim's Fokkers have finally reversed and are straining their engines trying to get back into position to pull some heat off of the Ufag.
  22. Just as Todd makes it in from the North, he and Snoopy are both treated to the sight of the Ufag careening into the ground behind the Royal Factory,...
