Description Edit | History

Wings of Glory is a game system that allows players to recreate aerial combat during World War I and II, using cards and miniatures to represent the airplanes and their maneuvers. In Wings of Glory players will control one or more airplanes, taking to the skies to engage their opponents in aerial duels, or trying to accomplish a specific mission, such as recon, escort, or bombing.

The Wings of Glory: WW2 Rules and Accessories Pack is a complete game system that includes all the rules and accessories necessary to play the WW2 version of the game system. Players will find the core WW2 rules system presented in a beautiful fortyfour-page color booklet with Basic, Standard, Advanced, and a wealth of Optional rules. Also included are all the rules and counters necessary to use special models (such as multi-engine bombers) and special weapons (anti-aircraft guns and air-to-ground rockets).

The pack also features four series of Damage Tokens (A, B, C, D); Target, Troop, Anti Aircraft Guns and Bomb cards; airplane consoles; two rulers; and counters.

Airplane miniatures are not included; the pack must be combined with two or more WW2 Airplane Packs or Special Packs (each featuring a miniature and its maneuver deck), or with a WW2 Starter Set.

3 Japanese attack on US carrier
Locating bailed out crews was updated. The airplane has to overlap the raft card in altitude 1 and slow speed to score 2 points. This is harder to get and also i goes together with the standard observation rules pretty well. Download the original file too, it holds all the printouts.

0 Barrage Balloon cards
You can use these cards for your games. The are 1/200 as the original size of the WWII BB was 19.2 x 7.7 m. You can use these house rules: 1. The balloons can be set up with at least one ruler distance between the edges of each balloon card. 2. They are set to a particular altitude 1-3. The altitude is marked by a dice/token on each balloon card. Since the original barrage balloons could be lifted as high as 1500m, the top altitude should be 2, but 3 brings more fun and tactics and this game is not really a simulation game... 3. Each balloon can take maximum of 6 hits (counters are put face up on the balloon card). Then it explodes and deals BB to each plane in short distance and B to each plane in long distance or short distance when the airplane is one altitude level away. No...

1 Alternative console - Allies
I decided to make my own boards. I think the ones provided with the game are not really bad, however they could be better. This one provides a counter for fire/smoke/climb tokens, so you can use just one and move it around. Also you can slide your maneuver cards from position 2 to position 1 with nothing that would stay in their way.

3 Dive Bombing 2D scheme with instructions
