So Fantasy Flight Games have announced that they will no longer be distributing Wings of War, beyond the current stock that they hold… that’s bad!
But Nexus Games International will be taking over the distribution of Darrell’s favourite flight combat game… from now… that’s great!
Here’s some of the main news from their press announcement:
The first new products that will be released directly by Nexus Games are the 12 airplane packs from the third series of Wings of War Miniatures WW2, which will add to the game the Curtiss P-40E Warhawk, Yakovlev Yak-1, Kawasaki Ki-61 and Reggiane Re.2001 Falco, each in three different color schemes. WW2-Series 3 is expected to be available in stores around the world at the end of august.The range will continue to be expanded by Nexus Games with new releases. A full schedule of the upcoming releases will be issued in july.
In september, a reprint of the Wings of War WWI Deluxe Set will be available. At the same time a reissue of some of the most popular miniatures from the Series 1 of World War I planes will be available: the Spad XIII piloted by the american ace pilot Rickenbaker, Elwood’s Sopwith Camel, Udet’s Albatros D.Va and of course the “Red Baron” Von Richtofen’s Fokker DR I.
At the same time, two new versions of each of the airplanes from WW1 Series 1 will be made available, with completely new painting schemes: the Spad XIIIs piloted by the aces Coadou and Madon; the Sopwith Camel piloted by Stackard, together with the “Germanized” Camel piloted by Kissenberth; the Albatros D.Vas of von Hippel and Jacobs; the Fokker DR Is of Kirschstein and Lothar von Richthofen.
We love Wings of War here at the studio. It’s one of the best games to play over a few beers, after a long day of filming us dice rolling.
If you haven’t checked the game out, you’re really missing out. It really is that fun!
You can expect to see more Wings of War coverage from BoW very soon.
