BLAZING SKIES- FLUFFY CLOUDS

I Saw this over On Tas's Blog:


Flying Officer Stumpy Prangsworthy’s handlebar moustache streamed behind him in the 80mph wind as he craned his head round trying to locate where Von Strudels Flopper Troutplane had gone to. Deep within the cloud, the spineless Boche had shown his true colours and escaped Stumpys righteous justice. The little Armstrong-WTF 90hp engine growled a new song as he side-slipped his trusty
Soppingwet Camel down towards the now helpless Gotha Inhimmel. The Gotha was almost at the target and in scant moments would land at the brewery and snatch No14 Squadrons Claret from under their noses.

BLAZING SKIES- FLUFFY CLOUDS

It's 1914 or 1926 but it's not like you've seen it before. The air is filled with the roar of poorly built Biplanes struggling for supremacy. Gongs and Promotion await those who can stand the heat of battle, derision and the firing squad for those who flee from the enemy.

Skying Blaze Clouding Fluff

The latest Release from the Atkins Wargames Stables, B.S.F.C takes the player and puts them in the cockpit of a Biplane and faces them off in a duel 2 the death.

  • It is a Set of Aerial Rules for Miniature Biplanes & Monoplanes.
  • Games are usually 20-40 min's long
  • The game is playable with any model airplane of about 6 cm long
  • It is a Semi-Hex based system. It uses no play mat so battles may be fought on the floor or on tabletops
  • Energy management is core to the game, players will rip their wings off if they go too fast, they will stall if they go too slow, but do you have the energy to preform that Immelman? Having said that...can your Hawker Phtooy do a Immelman?
  • Rules for Fuel , G force,Ammo and pilot skill are included for those who like a more advanced game
  • Rules for Hitting the silk, escaping capture, Gongs and promotion, running a Campaign and a Squadron for those who seek long term Glory.
  • Pilots can upgrade their Kites with new items such as "Noise seeking rockets" and "Intimidating paint job"
  • Mustache length is Vital in these rules. A luxuriant 'tache will carry a Chap far
  • This isn't Wings of War...It has altitude and altitude matters.

That figures! Let me guess all
part of this anti piracy campaign
we are embarking upon? These are
some of the advanced weapons Dr
Steel has provided to the Pirates?

You sinister SOB...It's why your campaigns are so much fun. ;-)

The Zeppelin rules sent by tommiatkins

Hi Redleg. Here is the cut and paste from the rules as regards Modifiers.

As For Zeppelins. Rather strangely...well to save space ..they are not in there. Adding some simple rules to portray them wouldn't be hard. Actually I might do that, & post it on my website.

Have fun.

Tommi

+ Chaps Guns skill
 + 1 large Target
 -1 Greying out
 Firer Shouts“DADADADADADA!!! loudly
 -1 Bandit Jinking
 -1 Firer doing +5 G manoeuvre or greater.

Updated Rules for Zeppilins.

VERY LARGE TARGET: +2 to hit. Max Ceiling 10

Weapons : 1 x Forward arc Machinenblasten. 2 Rear arc Machinenblastens. 2 Side arc Machinenblastens.

Zeppilins will be about 12" long in BSFC. They should be bigger , but this scale works best games wise.

Zeppilins do not manouver like Kites. At the end of a Dogfight Phase they may move 1". Once per TURN, they may make a Standard right or left turn.

Once per turn they may gain or lose one level of height.

A Zeppy has 40 structure points.

The Ach Nein table for a Zeppy is D20

1-16 Gasbag. No effect unless using inceindary bullets in which case D6 roll of 6 + Prangs the Zeppy.

17 Badly Holed! Zeppy loses one height per turn and cannot climb

18: Gondola. Destroy one gun position on the zepp

19: Engine: Zeppys have 4 engines Zeppy only moves at end of each 2nd 3rd and 4th dogfight phase if 1/2/ 3 engines are destroyed. 4 dead engines mean she will need towing home!

20 BOOOM..Ammo explodes and raging fire. Zeppy prangs.

Latest update from Tommi:

We are in the middle of a Postal strike in the UK, so it might take longer than usual to receive your rules.


The unions damn them! Bring them into line with the baton charge.
The strike is set for several more days...but I believe that some post is getting through.

Shout out if any probs.

Cheers

Tommi
