    Morning All, I have only recently started looking into wings of glory and starting out by collecting the battle of Britain ww2 set, and the famous aces ww1 set along with a few minis off ebay. I have a slightly large X-wing collection but a retired army sergeant couldn't resist trying this . I am based in Bristol in the south west.

    G'day Nick & welcome to the 'drome on behalf of the pilots who fly in NSW down in Australia.
    I bet you will love the "flavour" of Wings once you get a few games under your belt.

    On behalf of the rest of the pilots in our home based Squadrons may I now give you a formal welcome to the Drome Nick.
    I am sure a few more of the chaps will be along to welcome you once their patrols are completed.

    Greetings from sunny Florida and welcome aboard.

    Thanks for the welcome, I am well prepared for the madness and have all the pre-requisites as I have a pre existing condition due to Star Wars X-wing and Armada

    I am an ex scaley Comms engineer so you wont get me inside a tracked bullet magnet unless it has a cool radio / IT kit I can pull apart

    Bovington is near the wondrous home of comms at blandford but its a bit short notice but will try and make the next one.

    IPMS sounds awesome but the long haired general is away that weekend .

    I am hoping to get as involved as I can so I don't get my ass kicked by my kids this time.
