I'm just getting into BRS. I see that they at one point they had several transports and bombers available. In particular, was looking at the German JU-52.

Seems like they brought them out and they are gone? What happened with these? What's the story? Any plans to reproduce these?

Has Warlord now ceased expansion of this game?

Thanks in advance?

Wow – quite board here.

Unfortunately, you are correct. There seems to be little BRS play among TMP readership. Worse, I fear you may also be correct about Warlord's spotty support of the game. Earlier this year I sprung for a couple of sets of the Airfix version of the game (for a total of 4 each Spits and Bf-109s), but there hasn't been anything on Warlord's site about this 1/72 version, and nothing here either.

Maybe you and I can form a two-man resuscitation team?

Hi all- while it's true there isn't much action here on TMP- please check out the Lead Pursuit Podcast and more importantly their Gathering of Eagles event
I just got back and it was incredible.
They are continuing to support the hobby with expansions , aircraft stats and missions
You can also order planes from ROC Works, Armaments in Miniature, or various sights like Shapeways etc
Decals can be found at Miscellaneous Miniatures
There is a lot out there

Heck- check out my YouTube channel
All I saying is keep playing
Set up games at your local store, etc
You will find the players
It really is fun
Message me if you want more info

The original sets of Blood Red Skies transports and bombers were in fact the 1/100 Zvezda models, with conversion plugs to fit the flight stands. I got a bunch of them from Zvezda distributors and mounted them magnetically.
