Thursday Night Blue Max

New Game - Old Rules - New Group

A little introductory game of Blue Max for the new guys - 3 hours and two kills. Germans downed the two Allied pilots. For one kill each. Basically two games in 3 hours. Luke - Anthony and not pictured Stephen.

the allies





First German Kill



Second German kill


Then Couple of Saturdays ago I introduced (Henry) to the fun Blue Max / Canvas Eagles using the Canvas Eagles dice chart damage table with my 1/72 scale planes. I am afraid the germans did not fair as well this time - Escort quickly dispatched Observation plane escaped after observer wounded twice then finally killed. Untenable position withdrew to fight another day.

staggered table entry did not spell good things for the germans



The German escort must have been a Novice as he was dispatched early








despite repeated damage to both allied planes
 the lack of sufficient firepower saw the observer fail to down a single allied plane









Henry has Wings of War planes so Labor day weekend we will try that rule set and use his planes with both sets of rules. Henry has his own version of events from the Allied perspective to be posted soon.
