  1. Lawrence Rumsey's N.11

    UPDATE: Decided to redo the "brown" from the original Chaput as that "brown" was not brown at all. Then got motivated to match the green a bit as well. Still need to add RUM to both sides.

    I have been slowly working on this aircraft over the last few months. This is Lawrence Rumsey's N.11 from the Escadrille Americaine. Rumsey is best known for his drinking and his blinding of squadron mascot Whiskey in one eye.

  2. Pfalzifying


    Pfalz E.IV

    Needing a few more opponents to face off against the Escadrille Americaine I decided to pick up a couple of Pfalz E types from Reduced Aircraft Factory.

    In an effort to break away from our standard Wright Flight gaming sessions, in which we always start at peg four and no rookies, and rarely aces, I decided to mix things up a bit at the last Wright Flight gathering. To that end we allowed players to choose their starting height, including if they wanted to have climb counters in play, and used the C Deck to determine some random pilot/observer skills/abilities.

I believe there were eight of us nefarious types present to see a couple of Handley-Page beasts grace the table, escorted by a single Brisfit, facing off against a mix of German late war aircraft (three Fokker D.VIIs, one Fokker D.VIII, and one SSW D.III). The bombers had targets to bomb on three places marked out on a city mat (we used three mats altogether). ...
  5. Wings of Eternal City - Chapter 5: Report to the Infantry, Soldier!

    12/6/2022

    The second part of our tournament was held during Sunday. I'm sure Nemanja would appreciate the start around 9:30 so there were plenty of time to sleep after visiting Officer's Mess yesterday.

    Prizes are ready, minis are ready, players too. Tally ho!

    We were attacking with bombers during our first mission. Briefing, tactics, should be a piece of German cake. Well, it wasn't. Our brave bomber ...
