  • Origins 2019 Games Schedule

    Event registration for Origins 2019 is live starting today! Below you will find a list of our favorite games, at least those tied directly to this and our sister forum... They are organized by day and time and are grouped under the aegis of the different groups running the games this year - since there are three different groups/places where you can get your 'fix' this year, make sure you know where your appropriate game is taking place. It would be a shame to show up at the wrong place for the right game, or vice versa... I have listed the event registration number at the end of each entry to help you register for your potential game(s). To be safe, make sure the title of the game you want matches the event number - sometimes the Origins organizers have a glitch and numbers don't match. When in doubt, use the title of the game

    Well, I have completed Round One of painting on the C-ROC cruiser, turning it away from Scum and Villany toward the Rag-Tag Fleet of BSG fame...

    what is a flight of aircraft

    Depends which nation it is Iain, when during the war and availability of aircraft, pilots etc. The RFC/RAF squadrons could be 18 aircraft with three flights

    Three sounds right to me. They may have had more

    Dornier 17 & Ju 88 Listed in Squadron Packs on Ares Website

    My understanding is that Ares has now gone to an applique process, not paint for camouflage/markings. So, the He.111 was actually painted, whereas all

    Agree 100%
    Wish they would redo the DVa

    I would buy 'em all again and condemn the originals to crash marker status.

    Hopefully, the MGs get some paint. I am use to touching up wings edges at this point, as that issue drives me nuts. That seems to be a reoccurring issue

    what is a flight of aircraft

    Hard to say. Depends on the context. Even one aircraft can be a flight, but normally two or more.

    historical request here.

    how many planes consist a flight of aircraft? in my mind it's 3. Am I right or wrong.

    Beautiful!

    Just look how sleek and shark-like the Valom's are, compared to the awful tall, chubby, 'blocky' Ares monstrosities!

    Great find Rob. I read about the museum earlier in the summer, when planning a boat trip from Worcester on the Severn, but missed the chance to visit.
