I just bought the deluxe set for wings of war and now i wonder if you really need any of the other expansions in term of counters, rules, cards?
You have both the A and the B fire decks, lots of counters, two rulers, anti aircraft cards, objective cards for the ground, bombs, A,B,C,D maneuver decks. Rules for 2-seaters. That pretty much cover everything in FA and WyB right? The only thing i think i miss is the balloons from BD.
I'd like to think that the deluxe set is the only box you really need and then you can just go on to buy minis-boxes to get new planes and maneuver decks.

have i misssed something?

No, you are right. The DeLuxe set was designed exactly to this purpose.

A new additional kit Wings of War: Balloon Busters will allow you to add balloons too.

For AA guns please wait a bit more, but for the rest you have everything you need.

Thanks for choosing WoW!

And consider yourself lucky, Martin- the Deluxe set is not available in the US.

It sounds wonderful! (And saves much confusion!)

I just received my DELUXE yesterday.

Mind you I won't be looking at it for another few weeks.
How come you'll wonder,

Well my wife needed some Christmas presents for me, so I ofcourse had some suggestions.
No I don't mind having to be patient, if that is all it takes to get such a great game. I'll be far to busy trying to forget and practising my suprised look.surprise

I do think that DELUXE is all you need to play the game, but can you really resist buying ever more miniatures, I know I will have a problem trying.
Mind you, I do think you'll need some additions if you want to play extra rules, like the immelman thing (not sure what that is yet, but no doubt someone will tel us now) and there was another manouvre. I assume you won't find any of those in the DELUXE box.
Obviously you don't need them, but if you want it all.....

And if you want to use baloons I reckon you'd need the burning dragons set, but I won't go for that one, untill I've laid my hands on minitatures of baloons.

Yes I will honestly admit, the miniatures is what sold the game to me.
That and the simplicity of the rules. Seems as if virtually all ages will be able to play, with a little practise.

I reckon my sons and I will be annoying the wife no end, robbing her of the kitchen table.

Trusting an american to complain about not being able to get this set. For once we europeans can now experience how lucky the americans must feel at being able to get every other game, without excess postage costs.

Enjoy the game and watch them trees.....

There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can fly that can't be flown.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It's easy.
All you need is WoW, all you need is WoW,
All you need is WoW, WoW, WoW is all you need.
All you need is WoW (all together now)
All you need is WoW (everybody)
All you need is WoW, WoW, WoW is all you need.
