The day before yesterday, some gaming mates and I finally met for giving a try to Bag the Hun --specifically, for their SCW supplement.

It was a lot of fun despite our obvious inexperience – it was our first time!

As a pretty short AAR, we threw a Republican NiD-52 section and a Nationalist He-51 section against each other, to see what would happen – and if we were capable of sorting it out.

Each section was composed by a veteran, a trainee and a sprog. We used some home made aircaft data sheets and initiative cards (these latter, heavily customized), as well as a couple of toy "hidros" (=seaplanes) in the role of bogeys (from Kinder eggs I guess?).

Soon both sections spotted to each other and started approaching.

Heinkels soon took advantage of their higher MAN to outmaoeuvre the Nieuports and take on the tail of one of them – but their fire resulted ineffective and had to disengage due to their higher SPD.

On their side, the Republican formation got disrupted while trying to evade, but then they cleverly took advantage of their dispersion to counterattack the enemy by the rear and left side altogether (after some slow manoevrings I'm better going to spare you).

However, their fire resulted quite ineffective too. At that point we put an end to the game, feeling quite satisfied on how it had gone despite inexperience. We had a great time with it!

Models of this very first trial are Reviresco 1:144 painted by myself, finished up with home made decals. More models from other brands, hopefully soon!

Fantastic looking planes Lluis, and a fascinating period for air combat too

Great table, great period and a great game system. Did you use bth 1 or 2? They are both good.
