yay!

all damage is simultaneous

if it doesn't say a number, then it's 1d bombs

Where is the link to the pdf faq?

Ok , thanks for your quick reply !

Here are my last remarks :

1) We essentially play with miniatures (1/144). So for us the rule is " up to ONE aircraft in a hex".
If an aircraft X should enter a hex already occupied by an another aircraft Z ==>
a) The aircraft X has to return to the hex which X has just left (=1 hex back).
OR, if the option a) is impossible,
b) The aircraft X has to return to his initial hex.

In the two cases, aircraft X change altitude down 1 band.

2) Firing to the rear arc : it should be more difficult to fire at the hex just behind the aircraft. So the houserule si :
if you fire at such an hex, AND if the target is in the same or lower level (altitude level), the target number is increased by 2.

3 ) In playing with miniatures (1/144), we use only 6 altitude bands.

Well, I'd have no problem with those, except that firig to the rear is reduced already by 1, but if you ant it more severe, then increase to 2.

Don't forget to increase the attack die to a d8 or d10 if you want a faster game ;)

Please, a last question :
I suppose that a maneuver card "fast turn" or "slow turn" is automatically considered as "forward movement" if the conditions required to turn are not filled. Am I right ?

I know this may be a silly question, but I poured over every page in the rulebook, and I can't find out exactly what type of dice to use? From the examples, I figured a d10 makes sense but it was never specified. Help!

My instincts were correct! Also, anyone have a reliable way of attaching miniatures to a stand so that they bank? Mine are Reviresco 1/144th pewter with little rare earth magnets on the bottom, and currently they tend to spin awkwardly on the stands I have. The stands are plastic rod with thumb tacks on the top.

I have found that a little clip attached to the stand works if you can use pipe of some kind attached to the mini :)

there's banking stands available with RE magnets already on them too, the warbirds guy has gtrerat stands, but his site is in vitro right now
