Knights of the Sky 1915
One of the chaps at the club yesterday asked if we could do an early war game of Knights of the Sky at some point next year. I organised a 1916 game a few years ago along these lines and so have a collection of earlier war types already. This consists of three Fokker EIII's, an early Roland CII and a Pfalz EIV for the Germans, together with four DH2's, three (French) Nieuport 11's and a single Morane N Bullet for the RFC.
It was a good game but the DH2's had a definate advantage over the Eindeckers, which swung the outcome in their favour, despite the back up a couple of more up to date Roland CII's. As a result, I'm thinking of setting any future scenario in the summer and autumn of 1915 during the notorious period of the Fokker Scourge. This would even things out a bit but will require at least two or three new models for the RFC.
