The Romans fought each other mostly because we have a lot of them and no opponents. We also haven't played To the Stromgest in awhile and I was once agian reminded how much I love it. Enough to run out and tackle a pile of 15mm opponents for the Romans?
No. Enough I'll finish rounding out my Italian Wars stuff?
Great 15mm minis painted by Jon.

I was attracted to Wings of War, like most, by the nicely sculpted, pre-painted planes. But the ability to play on any horizontal surface with little prep made me latch on. Wings of Glory takes all the bits of WoW and puts them in one box.
With our Thursday games temporarily moved to Wednesday, attendance has been down. We got 5 last night. With me acting as ref, it was the perfect size for a rumble in the skies.
We played a few Basic Rules games to get the mechanics down, then adding all the extras of the Advanced Game.
WE played 5-6 games over the evening. Some games took half and hour, one was over in two turns when one German plane blew up, and the other was ganged up on and shot up with high damage cards.
It's a great system to play a whole campaign in one night of afternoon. I have already started remounting planes on magnets and ball bearings to simulate those climbs and banks. Iwill be trolling eBay and the like for more planes.

A few braves went down, and had quite a few "Ammo" results. Probably old rusty rifles and bad ammo....
It was not to be. Despite the historical outcome, it was a lot of fun.
Thanks to Jon for bringing out his toys.
