    Default Hi, Officer Cadet Nick Warrick Reporting For Duty

    I am new to Wings of War, very new in fact! I have a rule book and a game mat and am waiting for my first models. There appears to be some supply problems up the chain. My duel pack order with Zatu has been in the pipeline for over 6 months. I have now ordered some that are actually in stock, but I am worried about balancing my forces. I live in Lostwithiel and would welcome the opportunity to play with someone when restrictions allow.

    welcome to the drome nick!!! id get whatever you can get your hands on while you can and worry about balancing later. balancing isnt a really big problem as the damage deck itself works as a big balancing factor.

    Hi Nick, welcome from Essex.
    Run for your life - there are stupid people everywhere!

    Welcome aboard - the pre orders are pending everywhere and lots awaiting for restock. Be cautious, you can be lured into bidding wars and pay extortionate rates. Grab what you can but sometimes be patient (failed at this myself).

    Welcome to the Drome Nick. If you are having trouble sourcing models, may I suggest Entoyment Wargaming and Hobby Store in Poole. Pete is very supportive of our Wings group and tries to keep as much in stock as he can.

    Hi Nick, welcome to the 'Drome!

    If there is anything in particular that you want, drop me a line - I often have reasonable success sourcing stuff.

    Thanks for that. I have some planes arriving next week. I shall play a few games against myself to help learn the rules and not worry too much about force composition.
    Cheers

    Thanks everyone for your welcome and advice. I tried thanking people individually, but my replies pop up all over the place and I’m no longer sure who I have answered and who I haven’t. I have read all your comments and I appreciate your time. Thank you.

    Welcome, Nick, from Portland, Oregon.
    As others have said, get what you can when they are available, but don't pay exorbitant prices.
    You only need a few to get started.

    Welcome Nick, the people here are the utmost in creative. Be sure to use the Advanced Search function and dig around in the Files section. And don't be like me.. collected ALL the planes in my first year. It's too expensive

    (welcoming head bobs) from the lizard here in the 'States. Be sure to check out the Files section for loads of add-ons, unofficial aircraft, house rules, scenarios, that sort of thing.

    And if you like, consider joining in one of the Over The Trenches solo play campaigns, I believe one of those is starting up right about now. (contact Flash; rules for the next phase of the campaign are here: https://www.wingsofwar.org/forums/sh...Campaign-Rules )

    Or, if you prefer, Jump into the next scenario in the Play-by-Private Message campaign (which I'm running: those rules are here: https://www.wingsofwar.org/forums/sh...lay-by-PM-Game ) Note, though: I have one space left, and I've also extended this invitation to another new player, Grand Duke. First come, first served!

    Hi Nick, Welcome to the Drome from just up the road in Devon. Well, up the road is stretching it a bit, as I live in Newton Abbot! But if you are ever up this way, give us a shout and perhaps we can arrange to shoot one another down

    Feel free to PM me if I can help out in any way. And if you are stuck for players, there's always solo gaming. I do that loads and can guide you on how to go about it.
    Chau for now

    Bienvenue from Brittany Nick . Lived in Plymouth for some years and know that Lostwithiel can be a bit lonely for gamers.
    If you are willing to cross over to England Mike who posted earlier is a good point of contact, plus he is near the other Trago Mills if you "need to do some shopping"

    Thumbs up

    G'day Nick & a belated welcome from the Colonies on behalf of the Pilots who fly in NSW down in Australia.

    Yes sourcing models is a bit "how's your father" at present so just grab what you can when you can.

    If you are into model painting a great source of supply is Shapeways (3 D printing) some of the suppliers are members here & you can get all the hard to obtain Nexus & Ares models via Shapeways!
