Nice planes , I am looking forward to it. I wish we had more stockists in Australia of the minis.
Anyway, there is alot of talk about what plane is best and which should be released....... P-40 vs P-51 etc
Shouldnt we remember that war wasnt fair some planes were good and some were bad. Those poor suckers flying P-40's flying against zeros and being out manouvered at every point, they should be represented. The thing is that a P-40 was strong and could take the punishment that a zero dished out so that to me makes for a great tactical match up. It would be a pretty boring game if evry one just used the best planes that each side had.
Lets face it people, just like the real war it should come down to skill of the pilot and sometimes some good old fashioned luck.
Hooray for the Hurricane FYI like to see a 2c version in s=desert colours myself
This is true however, have you ever noticed how no one ever wants to play the Allies in tank-combat games? Same principle.
It's helpful if one can use actual tactics, as opposed to "pray I can get in a lucky shot before he nickel-and-dimes me to death". For ex., if I'm using F4Fs against A6Ms, I bloody-well *am* using the "Thach Weave"; but if I don't have enough room on the table to do so why bother playing?
The Jeremy Clarkson Debate Course:
'I'm Right. You're Wrong. The End.'
Yes I am with you on that, these are stratergy games there fore play all types and come up with strategies:-)
I love playing russian in tank combat and using T-34's speed to out flank the tigers w. who wants to just sit there roll good dice and win:-( boring
