Angels 20

I bought myself the Axis and Allies Angels 20 starter set at the weekend, it arrived on Monday and I've had some exciting dogfights since.

 The six planes are very nice.
 The rules give a fast and fun game.
 Years ago I planned to make a similar game using 1/72 scale model planes but it wouldn't have been as good as this.
 The maps are thin but they look pretty good.
 After shooting down a Me 109 the Spitfire gets himself on the tail of another!.

 And rolls well enough to shoot him down too.
 I use small dice to show altitude and damage rather than the markers supplied with the game.
 This shot features a home made cloud.
I do like the planes, £20 well spent I reckon.

Tracks of Fury!.

I had a nice tank battle today using Bolt Action. My son John and I are planning to see the film "Fury" soon and this was the inspiration for the game. Here are a few shots of the toys...

Tank battles play well with Bolt Action, I plan to make some markers for the game soon.
