Just curious if anyone has bought, and/or seen/played with these air rules?

I'd like a bit more info about them.

Looks like they're set up for running 8th Air Force bombing raids over Europe, and are produced/sold by Tumbling Dice, for use with their 1/600th scale aircraft minis.

Haven't seen any mention of them here on TMP.

I have not seen these but they are part of the Wings at War series of rules. I own several of those sets and really like them. Not as simple as Airwar C21 which is a modern set with a WWII variant on the web but not as complex as Check Your 6. The others in the wings at war series sort of hit a sweet spot for me. Enough altitude and aircraft variation without becoming too complex. I don't know about "A Mighty Fortress" but the other Wings at War rules have a great variable victory condition set of rules which really makes the series.

Neither have I. Pulled the trigger and ordered these on 9/26 along with some additional aircraft models. Received an email on 9/27 stating order had shipped.

Will post an initial review after receipt.

Thanks for the info.

Does look like a good deal, since aircraft minis are included with the rules as well.
