    With five players turning out, scenarios were a bit odd. First up, our normal opening dogfight. I had received the Scaroni HD1 and wanted to fly that. We downgraded the plane to a single gun and had three Italians single-gun aircraft against two Austro-Hungarian two-gun airplanes; fewer planes, more guns. Hmm.

    I am overlapping Will flying the Aviatik D.I, while Ben, in the Phonix D I is overlapping Todd. Will's airplane is sitting off to the side at the top of the photograph. Bill is flying a Nieuport 17 somewhere on the table.

    My Hanriot HD1 overlaps Todd's HD1 as we give chase to Ben in a Phonix D I.

    Bill and I have passed Ben and must turn around. Will is trying to converge on us.

    Mutually assured destruction! Ben and I take out each other. I succumb to accumulated damage.

    While Ben draws the Boom card. Those 4 and 3 damage cards at +1 certainly didn't help.

    Now with two Italian aircraft against one, the scenario was called. Are the Italians the victors?

    Scenario #2. A Belgian RE8 is on a photo recon mission with a Belgian Sopwith Camel in support. Three German Albatros D Va oppose us.

    I am seeing triple. Three very nice paint jobs by Todd.

    The gimbal mounts really make the scene, but Todd, flying one of Ernst Udet's D Va is really giving me the business.

    Scenario #3. Another photo recon mission from the other side. I am flying a Nexus Roland C II with a Bill flying a Halberstadt D II for protection. Opposed are three Nieuport N 11s. Rockets were not used in this battle.

    I am swinging to the right to get around the slower moving Nieuports.

    However I succumb to damage. Lots of zeroes in the +1 category, but there was enough other damage to take me out.

    Great variety of planes used there and a nice mat too. What is it?

    The mat is from gameonterrainmats.com, their Aerial View terrain mat. I would like to get a water one for seaplane action.

    Great work on those missions, particularly the last one - I'm always a fan of early war action

    Well done, Robert and your fellow pilots. It is good to see some of the Nexus models in action.

    Love the variety in fronts & aircraft.

    But those boom cards...out in force, and extra-nasty.

    We were playing with a single A and B deck, so only one boom card per deck. Sometimes we play with multiple decks, and depending on how they are shuffled, the booms could be grouped.
