I really like this game. Find it a lot similar to the Wings of War - Famous Aces and I really don't know why this game have low reviews. Maybe the setting. If it was a WWI or WWII scenario, the game would be much more popular.

Excellent air combat game, and awesome theme. One of Wizkids' best games ever.

The movement system can be a little tricky for some people to figure out, but it works great once you know what you're doing. Vaguely reminiscent of the movement system in Wings of War, but still gives a completely different feel.


I used to have this rated a 10, but it's been so long since it last got played that I've started dropping it bit by bit.

One of the better miniature games from WizKids. Collectable but not random, with cool planes and pretty good rules; I didn't care much about the pilot rules and miniatures, but the plane game was cool.

After a couple of plays, I'm enjoying this game more and more. Yes, it does have some ambiguities rule-wise, but logic prevails more often than not. One thing that really helps the game is making goofy zooming buzzing plane noises when you move your plane. Tee hee!

The secret to this game: bring your planes in at a slow speed, as it is almost always better to move and fire second - as you can wait to see where your faster opponent ended up, then position yourself accordingly.

Very nice mechanics. Simple but really funny, you can play an intense dogfight in just an hour. The rules are easy to master, but you need experience to play well. And the planes are too cool. 8)

I like this game a lot.

The Good: The basic mechanic is very innovative; you have to try this one.

The Bad: I found the numbers and colors hard to read. Also, too many colors (special abilities) pop up each turn, bogging things down.

I really liked this game. It has great theme, not randomly collectable, and was great for any number of players but... clicky games are good but this game would have benefitted from card based stats ala WarMachine or Star Wars minis. Altitude rules are a needed to really appeal to air combat fans.

BTW, I need an extra set of Black Swans and I need the promo silk stocking and signed 8x10 to complete my set.

Usually I don't like 3D miniatures games. Anyway, this is a good exception. The background of the game is another detailed and rich universe from the imagination of Jordan Weisman.

The actual gameplay is great - good blend of strategy and luck, and I like the Wizkids combat dials. Keeps the game flowing pretty quickly.
The main problem for me is the figures and the packaging. Maybe I'm just poorly co-ordinated, but I bought the first two squadrons and the aces set and managed to break two planes on the way out of the box. Definitely need to keep the superglue handy...

Just the right amount of crunchiness for me. Setting up scenarios is loads of fun. The general zanyness of dozens of airplanes blowing the crap out of each other while trying not to crash into one another. It just makes me smile.

In my opinion, the best Wizkids miniature game. I've tried several, and Crimson Skies is the only one I've actually spent my money on. The rules are fairly simple and easy to learn, yet complex enough to allow for several different strategies. The minis themselves are nicely painted, colorful, and fun to use. All in all, a fun and enjoyable tabletop miniatures game. I only rated it a seven because Wizkids seemed to have let this game whither and die so there will be no new miniatures or scenarios.

This is Wizkids' strongest game, in my opinion. There are a few oddities, like planes that gain tougher abilities as they take damage. So, like, did I shoot off all the crappy armor and now it's stronger?

Beautifully crafted minis make this game a piece of delightful eye-candy. Game play is straightforward and fun. It would be nice if there was someway to capture changes in elevations between plans. Making it a more than a two-dimension movement game would be a plus.

Have complete set sans AP4 and SP5? It's not a bad clix game really: I like how the game can be played like the original RPG. You can have scenarios and air battles as well as ground skirmishes between personalities. The sculpts are quite decent and the ruleset is well done.

Gameplay is a little fiddly because of the movement tokens used (Wings of War captured movement in a far more elegant fashion) but the clix mechanic makes up for it.
