Many years ago I was fortunate enough to have acquired the two board games and the expansion set mentioned in the title of the post. These were the original Battleline versions and not the Avalon Hill 'update'. Over the first five years or so of the early 1980s I, together with a similarly like-minded aerial gamer (Jon Bamford - where are you?), absolutely played it to death. The game covers tactical plane to plane combat in WW2 and although not by any means a fast play set like Axis and Allies: Angels 20 still gives a very good game. With my recent forays aloft providing so much fun I must confess to coming over all misty-eyed and rose-tinted at the memory of those great aerial fights I used to enjoy. With this in mind and with a certain amount of Google trekking I have been able to track down copies of the rules from each set and also the play sheet covering the firing and damage allocation. I have even been able to track down pre filled log sheets for every single aircraft included in each of the sets. I have even found some completed data cards for aircraft that never appeared in any of the expansion but, and it is a really significant but - I have been unable to track down copies of the aircraft data charts in full for each of the types included in all three sets.
Essentially I have everything I need to play the game except for the aircraft cards - which is a bit of a problem!
If any readers of this blog know of such a source for the aircraft data cards in full then please let me know as I would really like to use my Angels 20 models on my Hexon for some aerial battles using these rules.
I note that the game's designer - S.Craig Taylor, who was also responsible for Flat Top, Wings, Wooden Ships and Iron Men (and the Ship 'O the Line miniatures rules that preceded them), Napoleons Battles, Ironclad and a whole host of other games - recently passed away and so the hobby has lost a truly talented game designer and I for one have enormously enjoyed all of his titles above over the years including some epic games of Flat Top.
If you are able to help with the above it will be hugely appreciated although of course it will mean that the Angels 20 models will have to be pushed to the top of the production queue!
