Wings of War aerodrome takes shape…
So further to an earlier (possibly a little over excited) Wings of War related post, I update you with my WW1 aerodrome as it now starts to come together!
The muster has so far drawn planes to Scotland from a multitude of auctions and hobby / games stores in England, Germany, Italy, France and Finland. More are planned to join from the USA and Canada… Just need some more money!!
I have also invested in two carry cases from KR Multicase, and I would highly endorse the quality and value of their custom products for carrying any fragile / painted minatures or vehicles.
I still however have two burning issues yet to solve:
Game mats? There are some ‘original equipment’ mats that recently have become available in the ‘Mecca’ of gaming that is MSP, from ebay store “LotusVault”, however I also like the idea of trying to make my own. Perhaps on green carpet tiles??
One guy has made an awesome custom mat himself and has made the image file available online. However what to print it on to and where to get such a big print out done is then an issue…
The other question I am wrestling with is do I give into the temptation that is the new heavy bombers just released… They look totally amazing and are easily 4 or 5 times larger than the fighters. I also get a 20% discount on them as unlike everything else they are still in print and so not as ‘keenly’ sought after.
I have to get cracking as all must be mission ready for the last weekend in August when the Aerodrome commences first sorties… 7 of us away together gaming for three days solid!
I CANNOT WAIT!
