Air War C21

With the upcoming C21 game I finished the flight stands.

The base has a holder for 2 dice, one is the maneuver and the other is the speed.
IMHO it reduces table clutter. In other rules the telescopic antenna shows the
altitude band.

If the special maneuver is blown, it's replaced with a red die so speed can be adjusted later.
i.e. reminder

I have been looking at AAA flak bursts:

It's a wooden hex base, with Christmas wire as the support, and filler as the explosion

I got very geeky and was tinkering with tracer fire:

Work in progress

And for a comparison of 1/300 scale Mig-17, A-4 and a B-52:

Yes, it's a lead B-52 miniature. Heavy...yeah...

Tinkered with some house rules for C21:

Pilot wounded +1 for manuevers DR (difficulty rating)
Crippled aircraft +1 for manuever DR
Added minimum range for SA-2, also only used in "high" altitude
Split-S and Immelmann maneuvers only go reverse direction vice any direction
Unload manuever DR lowered by 1


  1. Jim,
    I like the dice system for keep track of things. How did you make the dice?


  2. The dice are blank from Chessex (16mm I believe). I used
    Avery mailing labels for everything. Thanks all
