NG International announces at Nuremberg the new products planned for this year in WW1, WW2 and miniatures lines
Wings of War, the game series which recreates aerial combat in the XX century, will continue to grow in 2011 with several new releases covering the first and the second World War series, as well as new miniatures. NG International, the game’s publisher, is working on several new products that will be released this year.
For the World War I period, two new series of miniatures will be released. Wings of War WWI Miniatures: Giants of the Sky will introduce the bombers Caproni CA.3 and Gotha G.V, each in two different painting schemes, and will be released in june 2011. Afterwards, NG International will release the 5th miniatures series, featuring four new airplanes, Fokker E.III, Halberstadt D.III, Morane-Saulnier and Airco D.H.2, each one in three different painting schemes.
The new releases for WW2 include the boxed set Rain of Destruction, which will introduce into the game multi-engine bombers and heavy fighters such as the B-25 Mitchell, He.111 and Me.110, with all related rules. Two expansions featuring 70 cards with new planes and maneuver decks are also planned: Winds of Fire (Hurricane, Zero and other fighters of the Pacific front) and Ground Attack (Ilyushhin II-2 Sturmovik and other dive bombers).
In the WW2 miniatures line, a first series of Bombers Packs is also coming this year, introducing the models Heinkel He.111 and North American B-25 Mitchell, each in two different painting schemes.
In addition, NG International will release the 3rd series of Airplane Packs, bringing to the game the planes Curtiss P-40E Warhawk, Yakovlev Yak-1, Kawasaki Ki-61 and Reggiane Re.2001 Falco, each in three different color schemes.
Wings of War is an exciting game series which merges card and board game mechanics to recreate, in a simple but accurate way, aerial combat in the XX Century. The players choose and play simultaneously maneuver cards to decide the actions of the airplane they control. Different planes use different decks of maneuver cards to represent their different movement capabilities, and different decks of fire card are used to take into account their fighting effectiveness and to keep track of damage. With the miniatures lines, the game becomes even more realistic, with accurate models that represent historical airplanes used to play instead of cards.
The Wings of War series includes complete games, usable by themselves or in a combination, or expansions, which may be added to any complete game to play with more planes. Created by Andrea Angiolino and Pier Giorgio Paglia, with illustrations by Vincenzo Auletta and Dario Cali, and graphics by Fabio Maiorana, Wings of War is published by NG International and has international editions in 10 different languages.
