  • Colbatman Memorial Raffle

    As many of you know, on July 2nd of this year, we lost one of our Australian pilots, Colbatman. The Col, as he was called by friends and fellow pilots, was an active member of his local gaming group and promoted not only playing Wings of Glory, but also the hobby side of the game with painting many planes. Before his passing, the Col selected two of his lovingly painted and rigged Shapeways planes to be raffled off in his memory. Here in the very near future his surviving wife will be moving so that she can be closer to their son. As we all know, moving always comes with extra financial expenses and the funds raised here could really help the Col’s family out.

    In honor of his request, it is with fond thoughts and a heavy heart that I post the Colbatman Memorial Raffle. This raffle will have two groups of prizes.

    The first group in concludes a Caudron F-40 in Belgian colours with its unique "grinning skull" nose art plus a Vickers FB 5 "gunbus" in CDL British finish.
    As you can see both models are rigged to Col's excellent standard.

    This group of prizes will be awarded to one lucky winner.

    The next group of prizes, one each of the Wings of War RAF R.E. 8 miniatures, was graciously donated by 7eat51 and will be awarded to a second winner.

    Everyone that enters the raffle will be awarded the Colbatman Memorial Medal to proudly display on their profile page and each of their posts.

    Please use the Paypal drop down and button below to purchase the raffle tickets. Each ticket is $5 and you can purchase as many tickets as you like.

    Blue Skies Col.

    This raffle is now closed and the winner will be drawn later today!

    What ruleset to folks generally use?

    I use all rules including altitude and most of the optional rules all the time. I have been playing WGS since 2010 so they are second nature to me.

    I have run games with non-AI flown Stukas, Vals and Dauntless without altitude. You can either drop the bomb card in front of the plane or use the plane's

    Is there a list of planes and their decks?

    If you look in the files section (both WWI and WW2) there are 'Unofficial' lists of all plane stats, decks, armaments, hits.....

    Hi guys, I am looking at getting some Valom kits and wonder if there is a font of deck wisdom to be looked into?
    Also, are there any scanned decks

    What ruleset to folks generally use?

    Alt rules truly slow down a game. However, I play with them much more often than I used to do before. It really depends on your group. The more advanced

    Question: House Rules about leaving the map board

    Ah, I see. If another damage/wound combination had been received they might keep flying. Of course they would be risking a second wound ending the game,

    Question: House Rules about leaving the map board

    The A5 and B3 are the highest damage and wound combinations for the respective decks - that’s why those two cards were selected.
