I've just ordered Wings of War Deluxe. I understand that I will need an English copy of the rules. Will the straightforward WoW rules be okay with the deluxe set?

Also.... what other WoW bits should I consider next to maximise my enjoyment of the game? I see on another thread that Burning Drachens was recommended - what do you think?

I thought Drachens was the first set to introduce the altitiude and immelman optional rules, which, IMO, are critical to any WWI dogfight game. It also gives you the C&D damage decks. Beyond that, you want more minis

Three dimensional play really makes this game, IMHO. I have only ever used the minis which make 3-D easy.

You can play with the Famous Aces / Watch your back! rules. Anyway true, the Miniature rulebbok can be downloaded and will provide you specific rules for altitude and even for the Roland C.II two-seater if you will buy it separately.

Nexus site is there: www.wingsofwar.it
But Miniature rules are also on FFG site:

The downloadable version is missing only the scenarios, that can be found there:

All the best!
