Thread: Wright Flight takes to the air April 10th

    Default Wright Flight takes to the air April 10th

    Not much of an AAR this time. Had 8 players show up today. We divided into two tables of 4. Here are a few pictures of today's activities. Jim O'Neil brought his shapeways Caudron G4 for some bomber action. Very beautifully done! We had the second table with Nieuport 11 and Fokker E.III involved in ground strafing. Matt Davidson brought some extremely well done shapeways Nieuport 11 and Fokker E.III. Finally, we had a combined game of dual balloon busting. We all had a very fun time today!!! Malachi, I hope you recognize one of the ballons!

    Pretty pictures! Thanks for posting.

    Good to see some folks getting face-to-face gaming in.

    Thanks Dan for the AAR and photos,
    I had a great time even with getting shot down
    in the 1st game by friendly fire (dam ground
    pounders can't tell a cross from a roundel)
    but got a kill the 2nd time around.

    Real people around a real table... almost forgotten what that looked like.

    Damn, EVERYTHING on that table looks great! The mat, those amazing balloons, the repaints, someone's awesome shirt... even the card caddy is jazzed up!

    Years from now we are hopefully going to look back at the photos during this period and laugh about how everyone looks like a bandito.

    Some lovely looking models and great to see Jim & the chaps back in action - dare I say the masks are an improvement ?!

    Lovely looking aircraft and balloons. Who makes that stand for the Caquot?


    Caudrons are on my "maybe someday" list.

    That's a Litko, looks like it's been adapted by gluing a bomber peg to the top.

    The all black Nieuport is an interesting choice. I also do like the Caudrons.
    So how many books are in your personal library?
