Hi

I saw this picture on Facebook from Historicon 2013:

Someone was playing a game with 1/72 models. The game aids on the table are saying both: KNIGHTS OF THE AIR and KNIGHTS IN THE AIR.

However none of the game aids actually look like the old Knights of the Air game from Avalon Hill. This game is played on squares and the game aids are all A4 sized black and white print outs.

I also see a reference here:

However nothing much is noted about it.

It is driving me nuts as it looks really cool.
If anyone know anything about it please let me know!! :-)

Cheers
Draccan

We few,we happy few,we band of brothers;For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother: be he ne’er so vile;And gentlemen in England now-abed Shall think themself accurs’d they were no here That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

Looks abit like "Red Baron" by 3W , designed by Jim Hind.

A follow up he did to Aces High and Blue Max also by 3W game company.

He changed the hexes to squares n reduced the mph to 10 mph increments so that planes could "creep" forward by that extra 10mph faster than other planes by carrying over the 10mph/20mph.
(each move fwd was 20mph,each diagonal was 30mph).

I always thought it worked really well,I never got it to 1/72 scale but enlarged to a 5x4ft board with airco/navwar mini's planes etc.
on wooden dowl sticks.

Thats closest what it looks like to me anyway

cheerio
Mike
