WINGS OF GLORY SCENARIOS
1. Straight up dog fight: aircraft are deployed anywhere on your own baseline. Players dice to see who begins deployment. Higher roll decides who begins, then players alternate deploying aircraft one at a time.
2. Delayed Wingman: wingman is deployed anywhere on your own baseline but leader is deployed one range ruler forward from wingman's rear edge. Dice off to see who deploys first. Optional: clouds.
3. Random Deployment: aircraft are deployed as Leader/Wingman. Dice for entry point as follows; 1 - left side within a range ruler of corner, 2 - baseline within a range ruler of left corner, 3 - baseline at least a range ruler but no more than two rulers of left corner, 4 - baseline at least a range ruler but no more than two rulers of right corner, 5 - baseline within a range ruler of right corner, 6 - right side within a range ruler of corner. Optional: clouds.
4. Defend the airfield: place your “airfield card” (represented by a red dot Ground Target Card) anywhere on your baseline, a range ruler in and at least one ruler from sides. Aircraft are up patrolling and deployed using Random Deployment. An airfield can be destroyed by strafing (14 hit points, page 36) or bombing (page 3Cool. A single engined fighter may carry one bomb. A multi-engined aircraft or dive bomber may carry two bombs. An airfield counts as 150 points. Optional: clouds.

Game duration: 75 minutes.

Winning the game: the player who destroys all enemy aircraft or with the highest score at the end of the game wins.
How to score points: for each enemy aircraft destroyed you score points equal to its value. Aircraft point values are listed on the Ares Games point system. Half-points are awarded for each enemy aircraft reduced to below half at the end of the game.

The 2019 Victorian Wings of Glory WW2 Championship has been run and won. Congratulations to Django for almost defending his title as the reigning Vic champ. 1st place Evan, 2nd place Django and 3rd place Trevor (the Trevor that does the big WoG displays). We enjoyed a very fun, relaxed day of aerial combat, a big thanks to all who participated.
