By way of a change I have decided that game number 6 in my man cave will be an aerial affair using my newly acquired (but yet to be repainted) collection of Battle of Britain era 1:100th scale aircraft. The game is of course, Axis and Allies: Angels 20 and the forces will consist of the inevitable Spitfires, Hurricanes, Bf 109s and 110s. I am willing to bet that most gamers 'of a certain age' could probably recite every technical detail of any of those aircraft courtesy of the thousands of Airfix models that have indulged in aerial combat over the years!
I shall fight one of the standard scenarios from the rule book and will of course be using my Hexon terrain although I made the happy discovery that the laminated maps I have kept from an earlier dabble in the land based Axis and Allies miniatures game are also usable - which is just as well really as the maps provided are pretty grim in my opinion.
I expect to fight with around 3 or 4 aircraft a side which will be plenty. I may even watch the film again - purely in the interests of research of course!
