Clothespin Aircraft in Action

Backyard wargame tradition in the Lion's Den. This game has been played for years as a 4th of July morning wargame. Dawn Patrol! This year we ran a play test on June 19th.
Tony, Bill, and Ted fly for the allies. Airplane models are mounted on drill rod and stuck in the ground. The cardboard boxes have the control sheet, dice, fire markers, and thumbtacks for the game.
Brian was my ally on the German side.

Yardsticks are the movement increment. D6 are used to fire the guns.

Terry flys in for the Germans in game two.

Please double click this image to open a much better view of the aircraft models. It will improve your view of the homemade aircraft.

View from my cockpit in game two.
Great game with some fun wargame friends.

  1. That looks like it was a lot of fun . . . and I particularly like that last image . . . very dogfight like.
