Hi one and all
I have been absent for a while with work...
so trying to play catch up here........

I think if i have read various threads correctly ?
the 1/2 October also clashes with Derby Warlord event

If this is correct then quite possibly attending both events
means one day at each event?
OR
One or both days at only one event...

If i am correct,

Then Saturday at Derby Warlords,
travel up for dinner on Saturday night
stop at hotel and game day with WoGA on Sunday

seems like living the dream to me....?

Please
Can some one in the know confirm i have the combination of dates right?
Then i can plan accordingly

Thanks
Maverick...

Lt. S.Kafloc
02-19-2016, 01:55
Yes Simon you are correct. Annual Gathering and Derby dates clash. 1/2 October.

Boney10
02-19-2016, 03:31
Hi Simon, as yet I have not asked for a table at Derby, although we have received an invite from the organisers.
Personally I am hoping to get to Doncaster, but will be asking Derby organisers for a slot next year. Here
I am surmising we are reverting Doncaster back to September for future events?

Neil put me down for a SoG slot for Sat and Sunday, I will be comuting both days

Lt. S.Kafloc
02-19-2016, 12:20
NP Chris consider it done. I've asked Chris to see if we can book Doncaster next year for Sept. Will pm you soon. Texting from phone in bed at present.

Please remove Me and Marion from the attendance list.

Well I never was really part of the clique anyway was I? Enjoy Doncaster.

Hedeby
03-12-2016, 16:31
It's hardly a clique - just a collection of friends and acquaintances that has grown over a period of years Barney.
It's a shame if in your mind that constitutes a clique, but if your trip to Australia doesn't come off you are (along with everyone else) more than welcome at Doncaster, the more the merrier as always...

Yell
03-12-2016, 17:55
Whatever - this has all got far too silly. Enjoy Australia

Yes I agree. Barn is also going to stop playing this game at this rate and sell off his stuff. Best thing if this is what has been playing hell with his health.

But he forgot to mention that bit.

Lt. S.Kafloc
03-13-2016, 00:07
I can't see where this has come from Barney. You and Marion are always welcome and always will be. As Chris has wrote Doncaster is for members to come along and enjoy a weekend of gaming. In that respect it is a clique as it is restricted to members and who they bring along. It is not open to the public as when we put on participations at shows.

I read into your post between the lines that your trip was due to work not from anything else.

Boney10
03-13-2016, 12:00
Just to confim Neil, I shall be there both days, but will be commuting from Barnsley.
I shall attend the meal

Lt. S.Kafloc

All good stuff thanks Neil, we may have an issue with the Friday night as my local venue may have to close (funding, money pit etc.) but I am sure I can source another location - hell we can always play at mine if needs be...

Lt. S.Kafloc
03-22-2016, 10:25
Paul your choice of game. Just let me know. I'm sure we can accomodate your wishes.

Neil

PS: If I can't I know a man who can....

Lt. S.Kafloc
03-22-2016, 10:29
I'm working on the faithful still coming,

Simon (Maverick)
JohnBiggles and family
Possibly Trev (Brambo)

So we could be up to 13 players.

Come on chaps. Could we have a little bit more support please?
Last year we had over 30 players. Lots of prizes and some tremendous games.

Even if you can only pop in for a morning, afternoon, 1 day, 1 game; its well worth it.
And did I say we get free entry into the museum too?

tikkifriend
03-22-2016, 12:02
Make it a BoB game for me to run then Neil.

Lt. S.Kafloc

Lt. S.Kafloc
03-22-2016, 14:24
OK chaps 30+ is the target for this year: 24/19 confirmed players for Sat/Sun, a possible 12 TBC's.

I'd love to join in the fun even if it's for one day, but I cannot confirm anything yet as my wife works alternate weekends, which means I could be looking after my daughter Zoe that weekend, I am starting to get withdrawal symptoms as I've not played Wings of Glory WWI for quite a while now.

I have sent out invites to those players who have attended before but not committed to 2016 yet and to those who have shown an interest but have not been able to make it.

Please spread the word. The more who come the greater the weekend will be.

We have myself, Nightbomber and Tikkifriend putting on WW2 games on table 2.
We have Chris (Boney10) putting on 1 confirmed game of Sails on table 3.

Fantastic Reg. You have a WW2 slot for a BoB game. Could you send me the write up for the game before the end of the month please?

I know I have PM'd you with these details but thought others might like to see what I will be up to.
If anyone can offer some Heinkel 111's and also early Spits, Hurricanes, 109's and 110's I would be greatful.
I currently have 1 x HE111, 4 x JU88, 3 x JU87, 6 x 109 and 3 x 110's, 2 x Hurricanes, 7 x Spitfires. I could add 3 x beaufighters if pushed.

Battle of Britain Game v1.2

Map of London (outline) with Thames Estuary and large enough to put satellite Airfields at relative distances and positions. Tangmere can be off map if space not available. British players can choose which Airfield they are based at. German Bomber players must dice (1 x D6) for where they cross the English Coast between Brighton and Ipswich. Divide into 6 sections.

Roll 2D6 Result =

2. Hun in the Sun. German Escort appears anywhere within close range of Enemy. Stay for 3 moves only as at Limit of Range and Low on Fuel.
3. Early warning. Appear halfway between Airfield and Enemy. (British only, Germans appear at table edge dice D6 as for Bombers)
4. Early warning. Appear halfway between Airfield and Enemy. (British only. Germans appear at table edge dice D6 as for Bombers)
5. Returning Sortie. Low on Ammo and Fuel. 1 pass only at Long Range.
6. Vectored in. Appear ahead of Enemy just outside Long Range.
7. Vectored in. Appear astern of Enemy just outside Long Range.
8. Vectored in. Appear anywhere within Short Range of Enemy.
9. Jumped by German Escort just after take-off who appear within Short Range. (British only)
10. Fail to take off as still being re-armed and re-fuelled.
11. Returning Sortie. Low on Ammo and Fuel. 1 pass only at Long Range.
12. Vectored in but not attained sufficient altitude. Appear within Long Range of nearest enemy but 2 Levels below. This may be 1 Level if Target is at Level 2. (British only)

Note: Any Double. (Except double 6) = Hun in the Sun. German Fighter Escort appears anywhere within close range of Enemy. Stay for 3 moves only as at Limit of Range and Low on Fuel.

British minor victory if only 1 Enemy Plane Bombs London = 10 Victory Points
British major victory if No Enemy Plane Bombs London = 15 Victory Points.
Delete 2 Victory Points for each Aircraft lost.

German minor Victory if any Bomber bombs London = 10 Victory Points
German major if more than 2 Planes Bomb London = 15 Victory Points
Delete 2 Victory Points for each Aircraft lost.
Add 5 Victory Points for any Bomber Leaving the Table having successfully bombed London.

Airfield Locations.
Hendon – 15 miles NW of London
Croydon – 12 miles S of London
Kenly – 15 miles S of London
Biggin Hill – 25 miles SE of London
Tangmere – 60 miles SW of London

British-Suggest no more than 2 Squadrons per Airfield with 2 x Spitfires & 2 x Hurricanes per squadron.
Can be 2 x Spitfire or 2 x Hurricane squadrons per airfield depending on models available.
German-Escorts can be Bf109 or Bf110 with Bombers being JU88, HE111 and JU87.

Number of Squadrons, both sides, to suit number of players with max. 2 models (1 Squadron) per player for both Fighters and Bombers.

This scenario tries to re-create the chaos and confusion which reigned in this period.

Roll 2D6 Result =

2. Hun in the Sun. German Escort appears anywhere within close range of Enemy. Stay for 3 moves only as at Limit of Range and Low on Fuel.
3. Early warning. Appear halfway between Airfield and Enemy. (British only, Germans appear at table edge dice D6 as for Bombers)
4. Early warning. Appear halfway between Airfield and Enemy. (British only. Germans appear at table edge dice D6 as for Bombers)
5. Returning Sortie. Low on Ammo and Fuel. 1 pass only at Long Range.
6. Vectored in. Appear ahead of Enemy just outside Long Range.
7. Vectored in. Appear astern of Enemy just outside Long Range.
8. Vectored in. Appear anywhere within Short Range of Enemy.
9. Jumped by German Escort just after take-off who appear within Short Range. (British only)
10. Fail to take off as still being re-armed and re-fuelled.
11. Returning Sortie. Low on Ammo and Fuel. 1 pass only at Long Range.
12. Vectored in but not attained sufficient altitude. Appear within Long Range of nearest enemy but 2 Levels below. This may be 1 Level if Target is at Level 2. (British only)

Note: Any Double. (Except double 6) = Hun in the Sun. German Fighter Escort appears anywhere within close range of Enemy. Stay for 3 moves only as at Limit of Range and Low on Fuel.

British minor victory if only 1 Enemy Plane Bombs London = 10 Victory Points
British major victory if No Enemy Plane Bombs London = 15 Victory Points.
Delete 2 Victory Points for each Aircraft lost.

German minor Victory if any Bomber bombs London = 10 Victory Points
German major if more than 2 Planes Bomb London = 15 Victory Points
Delete 2 Victory Points for each Aircraft lost.
Add 5 Victory Points for any Bomber Leaving the Table having successfully bombed London.

Airfield Locations.
Hendon 15 miles NW of London
Croydon 12 miles S of London
Kenly 15 miles S of London
Biggin Hill 25 miles SE of London
Tangmere 60 miles SW of London

British-Suggest no more than 2 Squadrons per Airfield with 2 x Spitfires & 2 x Hurricanes per squadron.
Can be 2 x Spitfire or 2 x Hurricane squadrons per airfield depending on models available.
German-Escorts can be Bf109 or Bf110 with Bombers being JU88, HE111 and JU87.

Number of Squadrons, both sides, to suit number of players with max. 2 models (1 Squadron) per player for both Fighters and Bombers.

This scenario tries to re-create the chaos and confusion which reigned in this period.

Hopefully by end of this week I will be in a postition to confirm the timetable and slots for games already booked. Then I can open the game slots for players to put their names down for.

I can confirm that we will have 3 tables operating:

Table 1: World War 1: controlled by Chris (Hedeby) and Tim (Flying Helmut)
Table 2: World War 2: controlled by Neil (skafloc)
Table 3: Sails of Glory controlled by Chris (Boney10) Simon (Maverick) but not by Tim (Flying Helmut)...just to make sure everyone understands that Tim will:

NOT BE PLAYING SAILS!

PS: Before I forget the Sunday morning game, Ace of Aces will be a SoG game, Tim will be the Flying Dutchman.

Did you forget my B o B game?

Sorry to harp on about the Pin Badges.
These need to be odered by mid Aug at the very latest.
I already have a few names but to make them prohibetly expensive we need to have a minimum number , which we currently are not near.
The pin badges have the wings logo, winged badge as per the areodrome with a coloured scroll underneath, this year being Red.
Sp have a think if you want a badge or not, I shall post this week a list of those already down for one, if they could confirm and any new names just add to it.

I would like two, please!

Hi All, My Scenario
I'm still not entirely sure how its all going to work, but basically an allied convoy of freighters will be steaming along, with an Airship giving top cover/ sub spotting.
A sea plane tender with destroyer escort is on the table somewhere.
CP seaplanes are in range and may be requested by the U boat.

I have the sub, the seaplane tender and destroyer, an SS class airship, some freighters in production, and a couple of Short 184 float planes.
I need CP float planes and anything else people want to fly.

The U boat can damage shipping by torpedo, but needs to surface to get a kill using it's deck gun.
When its surfaced, it can be killed.
points will be scored for aircraft brought down, ships sunk, and U boat attacks thwarted.
hopefully fun will be had by all

P.S. the ships are all 1/1200, the aircraft of course are 1/144

07-23-2016, 10:27
HI John
I have 4 x 1:600th freighters and a lot of 1:600th Destroyers and Coastal forces. Also got some scratch built wooden cargo ships knocking around somewhere which I could search for if you need.

Read your post again after I wrote the above. Should have gone to Specsavers!

If I could find affordable ships in 1/600, I might have gone that way. The bombing will just have to be from a bit higher up to maintain perspective!

Dave,
Not only is Photoshop lacking a spell checker, it is not able to discern the subtleties of 'local' usage. Canadians don't use either word, 'regale' nor 'stand', in common conversation. It was my feeble attempt to put a 'British' spin on the description.

Thanks for clearing up the definition and usage of 'regale', although I don't think many will lavish drinks on the card bearer for one story. I also took a moment to check out 'stand' and hope I got a bit closer on that usage, too.

Mike, these are brilliant. Any chance of one suitably worded so we can give everyone a card for attending (e.g. "I attended Doncaster and lived to tell the tale").

Regales's hardly in common usage here Mike, thanks largely to our education system I expect, though I did find out it also means to lavish food and drink on someone which is why I mentioned it, so, just shows we learn something every day.

As for a survival card as Steve has suggested perhaps a "I attended Doncaster without contracting something" would fit the bill ? ;)

Not sure if the "skill" icon location is the place for the mixed roundel, or if it should be a watermark behind the text. Also, I know that there are no German participants at this passage of arms, but there will be planes on the tables with the markings.

Thoughts and edits?
