Thread: Brothers Manfred and Lothar downed by my daughter on incredible Friday battle!

  1. #1

    Default Brothers Manfred and Lothar downed by my daughter on incredible Friday battle!

    A friend of mine from Germany (Christoph, black haired) paid me a visit, so there was a chance to get him to the game with Darek (camouflaged) and my daughter Michelle, a casual flyer. I assigned Darek and Christoph to fly tripes as Manfred and Lothar, while Michelle and me sat in American SPADs XIII - just to show differences of the machines in flight and tactics.

    The fast and furious game (no altitude) turned out to be an immense fun for all! Not only both Entente pilots survived the clash (Michelle with 1 point left, me with 3), but both brothers were downed by Michelle (we both "shared" final cuts with her dealing greater damage!), who scored 2 kills! She got on top of the world with the score!

    Below you can see some shots of the merry encounter.

    Excellent Andy, always good to get together in these days of Covid


    I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings
    Coming down is the hardest thing

    Last game I had was with Chris and Simon on the Friday before lockdown. Mrs Kyte and I met Captain Kiwi for a coffee in a cafe this week with social distancing in force. That is the only gamer I have seen forthree months. I'm afraid a solo game is the only one I will be delivering in the near future Pete.

    Always beware of the Killer Angels! Well done Andy. Great to see live face to face gaming with friends is still possible. Maybe a bit in the future for some of us but it will come.

    Have you painted a custom plane for Michelle yet?

    Thanks chaps!
    @Peter: shame on me - not yet, but the good thing is she is keen on painting! She loves to paint on canvas and recently she asked me to let her paint some gaming figures of mine - and I gave her some. Results are very promising!
