    Rob, you can do me a favour for the two SoG missions.

    To spice up the battlefield (2x SoG mats) I need something like two small & flat 3D islands (5x5 cm). Nothing special - just something to sail around a littel bit.

    Do you have something like that in your arsenals?

    Those would be perfect!

    ...without wrecks, please. We'll give the players a chance to sink their own ships on those beautiful rocks.

    There are some young Prague pilots who will join us. We have gaming session for them in two days. I bet we reach the 50 soon.

    We'll know soon are we bringing fifth pilot with us. He's complete novice, but seems interested. We shell see the outcome.

    Airfare and hotels booked. Now for the serious stuff.

    Is there a sign-up sheet for the various scenarios? I suspect I will be in for the Vimy Ridge scenario, but there will be other games being run that I might want to join. I won't be bringing any special planes, besides the ones for Vimy Ridge, so I'll have to borrow planes, tripods, and spaceships as needed.

    Each GM is responsible for the prepare the planes needis for his scenario. Many we are able to collect in oir Prague group, just let us know.

    In the next one or two weeks I will prepare some sign up sheets for the scenarios. Stay tuned, more info will come.

    The Prague comrades have a lot of planes and can provide you with some stuff.

    Tripods - I don't know.

    Get an eMail from Ares games to confirm my order adress from the KS. Maybe the'll come here in time, so that I can help with some Martians.

    I was granted access to the Prague Plane and Mat List. There will be lots of appropriate planes to fill out the scenario.

    I have enough for six pilots, but need a few targets for the German side to shoot at. The list indicates there will be Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutters and R.E. 8s on hand (Photo-Recon planes), as well as a few more Albatros D.IIIs to give more Germans a chance to shoot down Albert Ball and Billy Bishop.

    If we want, we can use a No-Man's Land map for Vimy Ridge, and some country maps for either side for maneuvering room will do very well for the mission. No need for a special map.

    I received the same email as you, Sven. So bundle of six tripods will come to my adress too. But I would not bet hey will come in time for the Con. We asked Andrea to bring some to Prague as a backup.

    Mike, I'll take care for the maps, 1 1/2 strutters, RE8s and D.IIIs to be on the spot. There will be time to prepare particular models during the break just before your mission.

    In this scenario I prepared something special for you: real 3D mountains.
    Attention: f any plain touches with its base any of the 4 mountains: immediate crash.
    Planes cannot fly over the mountains, only between them: very low level of the cloud cover.

    So, I have to come another time, not just once? Hmmm... Perhaps at Doncaster in September?

    Anyway, the Participation Card (Link: Wings of Prague 2019 - Post #30) has bee updated with the correct 2019 Con Logo.

    Sam [zenlizard] is the lucky recipient of the L-L raffle for my planes, so just the scenario set will be coming with me. Room for extra socks?

    Hi Robert, the ships are in "Port in Mountains 1945" are from the game "Axis and Allies", in reality have few centimeters.

    I'm not sure about your venue for Prague, but at the UK Gather in Doncaster they sometime decorate the meeting location with the flags from the nations of the participants. If that is the case, should I bring a Canadian flag, and would it be appropriate to add that flag to the convention raffle (again, not knowing how that works)?
