  • 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

    That would be the logical place. Too bad I have no WWII movement decks. I was hoping to use a WWI movement deck.

    If you are using altitude it could be turned into a Split-S instead of an Immelmann. Hope you have the altitude to do this without hitting the ground!

    I'm not sure where to upload the templates, base, and Godzilla's damage cards. Maybe to the WW2 files, house rules?

    Loos Hulluch 1917 terrain boards

    Those are just superb! And being flat (mostly), they don't interfere with the aeroplane stands. Do they come apart and stack nicely?

    What great game boards you make. Your AAR's are second to none with all the effort you put in. Well done.

    PS One thing I should really point out is the mess the drilling of the rubber makes. A vacuum cleaner will help avoid confrontation with other members

    Cannon and Immemann

    If a pilot fires his cannon after a straight maneuver, with an Immelmann planned for the next maneuver, is that considered an illegal maneuver when revealed?

    You could use a piece of Basswood. I've made balloon bases with it but after painting the top side they warped a little. Masonite might be better to prevent

    I based my mats on the Loos-Hulloch aerial photo taken in 1917, if that's any help. I've attached a pic of it but you'll probably pick up a better image

    With my very rudimentary skills, I printed out the template and rulers that Peter had posted. I then glued them to some cardboard, and cut them out.

    Mike I thought CIGARBOX mats made a muddy fields mat but I don't see it on their site. The closest I see to something like that is the ARID land.
