    Default Quick Intro

    Hi All,

    I'm 50+, I usually describe myself as a middle aged teenager, although I may soon be troubled by the trade descriptions act with the middle aged part.

    I've been playing games forever, miniature games, board games, role-playing games, you name it, I've probably tried it.

    I live in a village near Tring, although I put Aylesbury as closest city because most people have no idea where Tring is, let alone the village I live in.

    So then Wings of Glory.

    I started playing back in the days when it had a different name, must have been 14 or 15 years ago now.

    Played as often as possible but friends moving away, in particular one who owns the whole set of aircraft, and other stuff meant I never got to play as much as I'd like.
    Around the same time as the move to Ares and the name change I got into X-Wing, I've sort of kept my eye in with Wings of Glory playing it when I come across it in a games convention or one of my friends suggested playing a blast from the past.

    Then there came unto Kickstarter a glorious addition to the game, I'm pretty sure you're all sick to death of hearing about it.
    This gave me a great opportunity to pick up an old favourite with a bunch of models and a new twist to play it with, of course, I'll simply have to pick up some of the WWII sets/planes/cards as this is my favourite era of air combat.

    Anyway, this was a quick flyby to say hi.

    PS: Love the emojis

    Hi Glenn. I hope you have many enjoyable games with that kickstarter purchase. I have yet to try the WWII planes against the tripods but it should be a lot of fun.

    There are indeed, many, many, miniatures to choose from, so don't forget your parachute when you jump down the rabbit hole.

    Bienvenue Glen from Brittany.
    Welcome to the Officers Mess , that describes the people who frequent it as well as its function.
    I'm sure F O Kyte (Rob) our esteemed Wing co will be round later to do the intros but as a seconded ex pat may I say welcome to the fold.

    I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings

    Welcome to the 'drome Glenn, hopefully you can make it to Colours at Newbury this year - if you do come and say hi, we'll have a table there again this year, we might even chuck some Martians off the planet !

    As mentioned by my friend Lt. Col. Tikkifriend, I am indeed pleased to welcome you to the Drome Glenn. Would have dropped in earlier but was at a Wargames show today with a few of the chaps.
    Anyway, here is my formal welcome to you on behalf of the UK Squadrons and myself.

    Hi Glenn, welcome to the 'Drome!

    You're not all that far from me (I'm in West London) and 'Luftflotte Helmut' is always looking for victims (opponents! ).

    You've come back at an opportune time, as the WGF planes are finally becoming available again.

    Default Welcome

    Hi Glenn and welcome to the 'Drome' from up here in sunny, to-day, West Yorkshire. I live in a small village called Upton just south of Pontefract. Did you know that there are more villages called Upton then any other name in England. Just another piece of useless information!
