Wings of Glory WW1 and WW2
Wings of Glory WW1 - It is 1918 and war rages across Europe. While men face a last-ditch battle in the mud of the trenches, colourful biplanes fly in the skies above, gallantly fighting each other as true "knights of the air". In Wings of Glory WW1 you take the command of one of the early flying machines to shoot down your enemy, complete recon missions, and become an ace, following in the steps of men like Manfred von Richthofen, Eddie Rickenbacker, Georges Guynemer and James McCudden!
Wings of Glory WW2 - It is 1941 and the German war machine has steamrolled the Allied nations of Western Europe. Having defeated the much vaunted Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain, only the Royal Air Force can take the fight to the Germans in the skies over France. Will you pilot the RAF's famous Spitfires and Hurricanes or take to the air in deadly Messerschmitt Bf109's of the Luftwaffe?
Wings of Glory WW1 and WW2 are easy, fun to play, fast and furious systems which you will be able to start playing minutes after opening the box! Innovative game mechanics encompass planes with very different flight capabilities and firepower, while still keeping the flow of the combat simple and fun.

Lone Jack is set during the American Civil War, the battle of Lone Jack 1862. This game is being run in 20mm/ 1/72 scale, and using arguably the finest set of 15mm ACW rules - Fire and Fury. Classic fast playing and easy to learn rules. This game is a tribute game to Mr Allan Woodland, who passed away last year. Allan did much to promote the wargaming hobby in the 1970s and 1980s on the northside. He ran demonstration/promotional games (usually Napoleonic) at City Hall, Toombul (when it used to be crowded with people five deep watching!), and at school fetes.

DELTA ONE ZERO
Europe is in crisis. A devastating terrorist attack on a nuclear storage facility has plunged Germany into its worst humanitarian disaster since Word War 2.
