Comments and suggestions, as always, welcome from everyone.

OK -- constructive suggestions:

For the Bomber Rescue, have the rescue team start on the playing surface, rather than coming in on Turn 2.

For the Bomber Escort, have the bomber only have to hit one target (retaining two targets throws in the necessary doubt as to where exactly the bomber is going -- the defenders wouldn't have known "in reality", so they shouldn't know here). Change the Draw condition to "target is 1/2 or more damaged without being destroyed". (Oh, and the last sentence of the rules doesn't really make sense....)

Just on the basis of the AARs, it looks as tho' the bomber, and its escorts/rescuers, need a *bit* more time in order to have a 50% chance at winning.

I'm liking the ideas mate, we'll have to get them a bit of play testing to make sure we're happy with the outcome.

Which bit of the rules did'nt you understand? Hopefully i can clear it up.

"The whole mission is spent over enemy territory for bail out rules. The enemy is playing over friendly territory for bail out rules."

I think you need to use different terms than "friendly" and "enemy" here; perhaps "defender" and "attacker", respectively?

Oh, one other point: Could you post the pics somewhere else, please? I have broadband, and it still takes 2-3 minutes for the fourth page of this thread to load; who knows what the folks on dialup are dealing with.... :)

Anguss,

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner, got a bit tied up with work.

All the details for making the bases can be found in reply #4 and & #22 of this thread. If you're after the exact measurements of my bomber baces, no dramas, but I wont be at home again until the weekend, so i can post them then if you dont mind waiting that long?

All honisty, the mesurements were generaly made so every part of the aircraft body is a min of 1.5 cm away from the edge of the flying base. This was so I could show the turret/body/tail gun arcs, not becuse it had been "Scintificaly" worked out. So to be honist, it was a hit and miss bit of guessing, but it kinda worked for what we wanted and got us up in the air. It pretty much worked out OK, except for the aircraft turning circle, we never really got that one sorted out and it could almost out turn some of the fighters, which is not quite historicaly accurate!!!

Hopefully this will help, if not, let me know and I'll see what i can do.

Aaron

Anywho keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more, and oh I think you might want to run a special mission to free your POW's from the cluthches of the Tommies. :P
