Ares; "Yes, we mentioned we want to look at possible ways to improve the Sopwith Triplane model before we move on to reprint it. We have a few months ahead before we get them back (as in the first months of 2018 there's plenty already - former WOW series 4 reissues, Ni.16s, balloons, reissue of Series 1 models ... and tripods!) so we should have enough time to improve or redo the production mold."

Balloons are the most exciting part. I passed on the Tripods KS just to save my budget and blow it all on Balloons.

Balloons are on my list, but I didn't read anything within "Tripods & Triplanes" in regard to a re-release.

Is there hope for a reprint of the countrside game mat?
Or (in idealised fantasy) six foot by four foot terrain mats from F.a.T. Mats.

Lacks propulsion; tethered to the ground. Definitely a balloon.

Really excited by the ballons expansion coming back. I held one of the ballons in my hands in my FLGS a couple of years ago but passed on it and have regretted it even since.

You should still be able to grab The Nieuport 11 (Ancillotto) -WGF122c- online or in stores. It’s the one model that has rockets on it.

Appreciate any link, or specific statements, to where there is any mention to an Ares re-release of balloons (or whatever you want to call them).

Bob,

No general link, it was posted in the Comments for the Tripods and Triplanes Kickstarter, that just wrapped up 12/20/2017. There are over a thousand comments, I copy and pasted the quote from Ares. That is all I can do. If you were a backer of the KS, you can view the comments, otherwise it is closed to the public.

John

What planes were in WoW series 1 and 4?

Here's some info from the game's designer (there's other posts mentioning them but I don't remember seeing any extra detail):

What planes were in WoW series 1 and 4?


Wave 1 included the Spad XIII, Albatross D.Va, Sopwith Camel and Fokker Dr.1
Wave 4 had the RAF SE5a, Pfalz DII and DIIIa, Breguet BR.14 B2 and Rumpler C.IV C.

Wave 4 reprint was confirmed for around April. The planes for Wave 1 are part of some of the pledge levels or SG. Since they will be running the Wave 1 molds, there is expected to be a general release outside of the KS (no exclusives).

I'd say Wave 4 in Spring, Wave 1 and balloons in July together with the Tripods. But that's a personal guess.

Top wing too close to the middle wing. Ruins the distinct appearance of the plane. Only WOG model I refused to purchase.

Anyone know if the reissues will correct the wing placement on the Sopwiths?
