Wings Of Glory Albatros D.Va VS Sopwith Camel Dogfight AAR #2




Today I'll be flying a second sortie using the Wings Of Glory Basic Rules. In today's match, I'll be flying the  German Albatros D.Va (Yellow and Green Plane) of Karl Friedrich Kurt Jentsch and will be going up against a Belgium Sopwith Camel (Dark Green) of Jan Olieslager. I switched sides from my first AAR #1 so I can use the same planes but from the opposite sides to hopefully learn to both fly with and against each type. Just like my previous flight, I'll be using the Face to Face scenario that is in the Duel Pack Solo Rules book and the Sopwith Camel will be flying with AI using the solo rules by Herkybird of the Tyneside Wargames website.

Today from my archives I bring you another piece of memorabilia from Masters Of The Universe: The Motion Picture, a pin-back button.

Wings Of Glory Sopwith Camel vs Albatros D.Va Dogfight AAR #1



I first became interested in Wings Of Glory back when it was transitioning from its original name Wings Of War by Nexus into Wings Of Glory by Ares. I loved the game but with most games, I had a problem finding people willing to play it, and in addition to having my health deteriorate to the point of needing surgery I had to put the game back on the shelf for the time being which is where I find myself now. Times change and I now find myself willing and able to play.

I wanted to play some games by myself to relearn the rules before trying to teach anybody new how to play the game. I will be flying a Sopwith Camel flown by Jan Olieslager of Belgium and will be flying against an Albatros D.Va flown by Karl Friedrich Kurt Jentsch for Germany. For the Albatros, I will be using the solo rules that were originally designed by Herkybird and can be found on Tyneside Wargames' website here. Because I'm relearning the game I will be using the Basic Rules for this sortie.

Mega Bloks Katana Swat Leo Action Figure From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review


Today I bring you another toy rescued by my wife from the clearance aisle. This is Leonardo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the form of a Mega Construx toy. This isn't from their Heroes line like some of the Masters Of The Universe toys I've reviewed, which also has some TMNT figures that look different than this one, but a separate one... I think. It can be hard to find information out on these toys.

NECA TMNT Shredder 7 Inch 1990 Movie Action Figure Review


Today we come to the last action figure in wave 2 of NECA's 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie toy line. I've already reviewed Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo from the Wave 1 as well as (Bladed) Foot Soldier, Splinter, and (Melee) Foot Soldier which leaves the best for last. Besides a movie Skeletor, a movie-accurate Shredder is the other bad guy action figure from a movie I always wanted as a kid but never got. I had the regular Shredder from the Playmates line but they never made a figure from the first movie, until now that is.
