The Balloon Buster expansions for Wings of War are now on sale
Wings of War | Published 17 March 2010

Recent air recon missions have revealed that the Balloon Buster Expansion Sets for Wings of War are now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore!

Fly some of the most dangerous missions of all time with these two new expansion sets – Balloon Buster (Johnson/Prince) and Balloon Buster (De Guibert).

Balloons had tremendous practical value during World War I, both as observation platforms and for launching fearsome barrages against ground targets. These behemoths of the sky were called Drachen, and although they didn't move very quickly, the balloons were quite a challenge to bring down.
Each Balloon Buster Expansion Set includes one beautiful Drachen model, a rocket equipped Nieuport 16, plus an assortment of decals to customize your models.
The twenty page rules booklet explains how to add balloons and Le Prieur rockets to your Wings of War battles, plus offers a number of exciting new missions so you can jump right in.
Your mission is to head to your local retailer and grab these remarkable expansions today!


Wings of War is an innovative card game that realistically simulates aerial combat in both World War I and World War II. Wings of War miniatures are three-dimensional accessories for Wings of War that couple the same revolutionary game play with beautifully-sculpted and historically-accurate models.

Additional note:  you can't tell from the graphic, but the balloon set's box is a little bit larger than a WoW boxed set.

Thanks FFG for finally shipping this product!  My package arrived Friday (via local game shop) and it is very nice.  Very high quality packaging, two models, substantial rules booklet, altitude pegs including large pegs for the balloon, sheet of counters.  All to the expected stellar quality standards of both WoW and FFG.  I don't believe there are any other models of this balloon available and this one is very nicely done, down to the observer in the basket.  And there are decals for both sides of the conflict that can be applied to the balloon model. 

Many people will say that even with the quality components included, that the package is a bit steep at US $59.95.  That's  your prerogative of course.  But be aware, this package is part of the international manufacturing run and there is every reason to suspect the supply is limited.  Grab yours quickly if you want one.

I soooooo want these! Curse you, FFG for taking all my money!

On the other hand, thanks for getting us such cool stuff.

Now my brain hurts...

I would be tempted to buy these for pulp gaming, even though I don't do WoW. These are very nice looking models!
