Wings at War is a series of wargames rules for recreating air combat using 1/600th scale aircraft models.
Each set of rules is for a specific conflict or campaign, with games designed to last around one or two hours. As the sky tends to be a lot less cluttered than the ground, games can be set up quickly and fewer models are required - making for a cheaper night out.
Any number of people can play. As the victory target is dependent on the size of a force, opposing sides don't have to be equally balanced, a smaller or less sophisticated mix of planes can defeat a larger or more advanced enemy by reaching their (lower) victory target first.
The rules, along with a comprehensive range of 1/600th scale aircraft models, including all those pictured on this website, are available from Tumbling Dice.
Irregular Miniature's massive choice of buildings and vehicles are in the slightly smaller 2mm scale but fit perfectly well with high flying 1/600th aircraft models due to the perspective when viewing from above.
You too can pretend to be the Red Baron; or like William Holden attack the bridges at Toko-Ri in your flashing blue Banshee; or sink a few beers and reach for the sky as a legless Spitfire pilot in the Battle of Britain.
