Ramblings Over the Front

The occasional post of my Wings of War/Glory gaming and collecting.

  1. Esty RAF Hanriots

    Received my two Hanriots today after a bit of a mix up with Shapeways/FedEx having my correct address but then saying it was an incorrect address. Overall I am pleased. Roundel colors look very good, as do the tri-colors across the bottom wing of the Italian Hanriot. Colors on the rudders are a but muted, almost fased, and the thistle emblem on the side of the Belgian Hanriot is difficult to see. The five color camo of the Belgian seems to also be a tad "off" as it has a little too ...
  2. Next Wright Flight Event

    A few years ago I was running our Facebook presence for the Wright Flight, a group of guys based in greater Dayton and greater Cincinnati. We held monthly sessions first at The Hobby Shop, then we moved to Epic Loot in Centerville, and for the last couple of years the group has been carrying on at Dragon's Guildhall. I had dropped out actively between Epic Loot and Guildhall, but the ball was picked up nicely by several chaps. Of late both GDog and Camelbeagle have been doing a bang up job of ...
  3. Diving Back In

    More like a slow dive....

    I had sold all my Wings stuff a couple of years ago as I wanted to focus on WWI air combat using Check Your 6. To be honest, I enjoy CY6 more than I do Wings (heretic, right?). I feel like CY6 provides a better feel as well as more realistic maneuvers for out little planes on the tabletop. I had quite a collection of aircraft with some modified paint jobs, extra decks, ace skill cards, tools of the trade, etc., etc. Sold it really for a song, but I also ...
  4. More Kindness of Friends and Gaming!

    It has been QUITE some time since I have visited the 'Drome let alone post a blog entry. I haven't had the chance to game with the gang this summer due to other events, but yesterday seven of us were able to gather at Epic Loot and do up the Italian Front. A sub, several floatplanes, and some of the new Phoenix fighters graced the table. The G Dog was testing a scenario for a upcoming convention, and we played through it a couple of times. It was fun flying the Austrian Macchi as I had more ...
  5. Location Update for Wright Flight Events

    It looks as though are events will now be on the second Saturday of each month at Epic Loot, located in Centerville. Matt56 will be posting our events on the 'Drome with specific information. The Hobby Shop has been a nice home for us, but they schedule tourneys without much notice, and table space becomes an issue. Epic Loot has larger tables, access to restrooms, is well lit, cleaner overall, and has an opening for us on a regular basis. Parking is a bit hectic, but our lunch spot now is a ...
