    Default Reporting for duty from the Brisbane airfield

    Hi all,

    My name is Tony and I am based on Brisbane's Northside. I played some Wings of War many years ago and am looking to get back into the game with Wings of Glory.

    I currently have a collection of 0 but am looking at WW1 as I do like those majestic old birds.

    So, is there any regular or semi-regular players around?

    Cheers
    Tony

    Welcome to the Aerodrome, Tony, from here near Norwich in the United Kingdom. I am fairly certain that there are other members here from Queensland. If you explore the other posts from members of the Australian wing, you may find some.

    People here are very friendly and helpful, so , please feel free to ask any questions you may have about the game and do explore the rest of this website.

    Well,
    I'm not exactly near you, but you've come to the right place to find like minded individuals. I, too, am looking for regular players, but haven't found too many devotees. Tomorrow, I'll be out trying to recruit new players at a gaming demo event in a city about an hour south of me. There are people from all over Vancouver Island that shop in that city, and you never know who will show up and get introduced to a new (to them) hobby.

    So, welcome to the Forum, and best of luck in your search for more players of a great game.

    Welcome Tony,

    We have a small group playing WGS regularly in a campaign at Ace Comics in Annerley but are not averse to a WGF game. There are a number of other players around in the Brisbane area as well. I'm north side based myself if you're ever keen for a game.

    Hi Tony,
    Welcome from the beautiful Hudson River Valley. You'll find people here to be warm and very helpful -- if you have any questions, ask away as there is usually someone with impressive knowledge in the area.

    Welcome to the 'drome Tony from a windy East Sussex on England's south coast today - Carl_Brisgamer is a keen type with both WW1 & WW2. I'm sure if you contact him he'll steer you right. Another forum member, Evan (Xen), sells models if you feel the urge to splurge !

    Hi Wayne,

    Always keen for some gaming, when are you typically free? Also, when is the campaign usually on and can newcomers jump in?


    And to everyone else thanks for your warm welcomes.
    Cheers

    Thumbs up

    G'day Tony & welcome back to the Game & to the 'drome on behalf of the pilots who fly down in NSW.

    As mentioned Carl_Brisgamer is one of the "movers & shakers" of the hobby in Qld & has organised the WW2 campaign mentioned.
    Carl also has a huge collection of WW1 aircraft & I usually get to play against him when I visit my daughter, at Christmas, who lives near Redcliff.
    I am sure you will get a response from Carl when he sees your post.
    He does get caught up in work rosters from time to time.

    The campaign usually runs on Saturday mornings but not for the next few weeks with Carl being out of town but anyone is free to come and jump in when it is. I'm usually free on the weekends.

    Welcome back to Wings of Glory, and welcome to the Forum, Tony. As others have said, I have found people helpful and thoughtful on this Forum. It is amazing where answers to questions or comments come from.
    It sounds like you are already starting to make connections there in Brisbane, so that's good.
