Algernon Pulls it Off
World War I biplanes using TFL rules and Mike’s excellent miniatures. Mike and Phil played as Germans, Andy and Bruce as the British. Mike narrowly missed Andy’s ace as the two squadrons approached and then got behind Bruces chaps as they slowly climbed. Bruce’s pilot panicked, went into a spin and ended up in the mud.
Meanwhile Phil closed in support with the german Ace and began to tail a british pilot. However his weapon jammed at the crucial moment. Andy’s pilot did multiple turns and twists but could not the free of Zimmerframe. However the german emptied out his entire magazine over the ensuing turns yet could not get in an effective shot.
Phil’s rooky pilot got tailed and could not shake off Bruce’s pilot who first cut his fuel line with a well aimed shot thus priming his target which he then set alight with a further well aimed burst.
Mike’s pilot suffered an engie hit and had to retire for repairs. His next pilot suffered a nasty wound, blacking out for a short period he quickly recovered control and retired behind the lines. Finally his last pilot got caught in the sights of Bruce and Andy’s Ace wo soon had him crashing in a spin out of control towards the mud. Seeing all this Zimmergrame with his guns out of ammo retired.
Well done Andy and Bruce.
