Conwy Wargames Club WW1 Air combat Game 3

The 3rd game of the day saw us graduate to the advanced rules and a scenario game.

The advanced rules were additions to the free rules added by Chris. These were rules for height which in summary were:

In the command phase you set which altitude you are at by playing a climbing card - max move 2 out of 4 altitudes, diving and flying level.

Collisions now mean planes crash during movement.

During the firing phase if you were diving you had a shortened range and less dice.

The Scenario

A British squadron is patrolling in no ones land specifically to catch the Red Baron alone and shoot him down.

The British have 4 planes (Dave, Dickey, Pete and Pete)

The Red Baron (me), and Tony with 2 German planes that can come to the Barons rescue.

The Red Baron starts the game behind the German lines and air defences (the British don't know about the air defences)

The Game
The British squadron ready for the revenge

Squadron leader Dave reduces his flight by 50% by colliding with Dickey. Words were said. 

The Red Baron flies away from the British drawing them forward.

Pete flies in to flack and takes 3 hits

The Brits close in 

The Red Baron strikes and the British are down to 1 plane

Pete the last hope for the British chases the Baron over German air defenses and doesn't make it out!
Victory to the Red Baron!! My smugness at winning 3 games in a row was becoming a physical presence in the room.
