Hello, what WW2 air rules would you suggest that satisfy these criteria?
- Simple, fast play
- Solo friendly (a must!)
- Hex board or free
- Small playing area
- 1/300 scale
- 1-4 models each side
Thank you!12/06/2019 at 17:39 #116235
Bag the Hun would work, especially as it’s card driven so ideal for solo play.12/06/2019 at 19:12 #116239

Table Air Combat is a nice set, although you have to get it in some modules – very economical though.14/06/2019 at 12:43 #116338
Stupid me. Somehow I read WW2 as WW1. Should have gone to Specsavers (but you do, you idiot). Sorry about that.

Bag the Hun is great
If you want something simpler, Blood Red Skies is also very good, and can be easily adapted to a hex grid.14/06/2019 at 18:02 #116361
Developing The Portable Wargame by Bob Cordery has a simple set of WW2 air warfare rules, hexed and scale agnostic IIRC, might be worth a look.15/06/2019 at 02:40 #116375
Highly recommend Blood Red Skies, it does a great job of capturing the feel of a dogfight without a lot of mechanical complexity. The rules pdf should be free online, and while Warlord’s miniatures (~1/200) are nice and have a clever tracking system built into their stands, you could play with your own miniatures and a simple token to track advantage pretty easily.15/06/2019 at 09:05 #116377
Raiden miniatures had a free set of rules called Thunderbolts and Lightnings that would tick all of your boxes. It’seems still be available via Free Wargames Rules or the Raiden site. Nice and straightforward.
