Dixie vs. Navajo Nation

Michi wroteColonLast night´s game was the first time we made it through all 24 turns until fuel ran low and we had to quit the fight.
Doc wanted to pilot a Brigand (the plane in the foreground, the other is a Coyote), thus I lent two planes to him. This is his "White Feather" flight from Navajo Nation:
Image


Their opponents were my proud southerners from "Dixie Blue" flight, leader Jason Hambone and his wingman Fred "showstarter" Crawford had both been gathering experience in previous dogfights. I had a Brigand too and a Fury which proved to be very useful by Walter and Doc in previous games.
Image


We started on opposing table ends. Scycrapers made obstacles all around and we got into a wild manoeuvring around the aerodrome in the centre.
Image

Image


Though we finally got into firing positions and gave lead to each other. Brigand pilot Evander Doughnut and Fury pilot Fred Crawford were equally quick on the trigger. We had to roll it out and Doc beat my 9 with an unbelievable 10... :banghead:
Image


Even worse: Doc´s Coyoty could fire at my Brigand while I faced the wrong direction to fight back... :rant:
Image

Image


My poor Jason Hambone swallowed lead by pounds...
Image


...and the brave Brigand´s wingspars got surgically severed. The pilot didn´t manage to bail out and I lost another valuable veteran.
Image


Meanwhile the Fury and the Brigand exchanged lead as well. I even sunk two drill rockets into Doc´s Brigand´s wings each.
Image


We curved around for a while with me permanently tailing the crippled Brigand, but Doc couldn´t get his Coyote in a firing position. Regretfully I had lost three guns, all rockets and the remaining two guns got jammed. I could have fired at the Brigand each turn if not for those damned guns! :banghead:
Image


Image

Turn 24 saw me pumping some more lead into the Brigand´s tail again, wiping out the gun turret, but the game was over.
Image

I had to fly home according to the rules and had to consider myself the looser as I had lost a plane and a pilot... :bye:
Though fighting through 24 turns within three hours was a record for us!

This is the greatest account of a table-top Crimson Skies battle I have ever seen! The Navajo Nation and Dixie paint schemes are awesome, and i love Coyote and Valiant as departures from the standards planes we see so often. This totally gets me hankerin' to take to the skies. Thanks for posting!

AWESOME paintjobs. Did you actually paint on the little details like the feathers or numbers or Dixie insignia, or did you use decals?

Wow. Very, very nice. I wish I could manage that level of detail on my own minis, but my hand is just not steady enough.

Very cool.
