Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may well find something of interest if you rummage about a bit (check out the Labels at the bottom of the blog). I concentrate on air and naval wargaming, but other 'skirmishy' things quite often pop up out of nowhere, only to disappear again after something else grabs my attention. I even finish the occasional project now and again!

Wings At War Desert Spitfires
Something that I have been thinking about, as a way to learn the Wings At War rules system, is to start with a mini-project rather than diving straight in with MiG Alley. There is a free version of the rules which is based on the 1948 War of Independence between Israel and the Arab States, so I thought I might start out with that.
The rules are called Desert Spitfires and feature a three way split between the Israelis, Egyptians and RAF, the latter very much stuck in the middle. The good thing about this is that there are a lot of unusual and interesting aircraft but all in small numbers, so only a few packs of Tumbling Dice models are required, especially as I already have some suitable bits and bobs.
I'll have to give this some serious thought as it would be a quick, cheap and enjoyable way to get my head around the Wings At War rules:
