I saw these over on BoardGameGeek and though you all may like to see them.
The F4F Wildcat
Although the minis are going to be 1-196 scale (Smaller then we're used to) the detail looks really good.

This looks to be what the first series of minis is going to be. So just like the WW1 models, they are all going to be from different flying squadrons, which should make for a bit more colour/varaition in the game.

Those look great, AND I like the pilot mix. I've always had a soft spot for JG26 and USMC aviators.
Springtime for the release?
I am just waiting a look-like deluxe set(like for WoW) to buy.
Anyone knows when they 'hit' stores(in Europe)?
I'm actually more excited about these minis than of WWI minis. I think these will be more fun to play than the WWI minis.

Also saw this over on Board Game Geek,
More stuf off of Board Game Geek, just to wet your appetite!!
Factory prototype of Vybral's Spitfire.
They're really cool!
I agree with who prefers these to WWI ones (a part from the red baron wich i like)
Minis are great, but does anyone know when we'll be getting an actual full expansion for WWII?

hope they come up with more fleet air arm stuff like seafires,F6F hellcats,F4U corsairs,stringbags (swordfish),TBM avengers,baracudas,even something stupid like a skua LOL.after all the last plane shot down in ww2 was an A6M by a RN seafire Mk 3 from H.M.S. INDEFATIGABLE. as was the last allied plane shot was a seafire from the same ship and squadron by an A6M.
