Balloon Busting (Spandau & Lewis)

A writeup of a couple of balloon-busting games using my simple home-brewed Spandau & Lewis rules. The rules are still in development (and have been since 2008), but I have the basic mechanisms pretty much sorted and am playing around with stuff for specific scenarios and missions now. That's what these games were.

The first game was set in Summer 1915 and saw a couple of Vickers Gunbus attempting to pop the balloons with machine-guns only. The second game was set a year later, and French Nieuports were attacking the balloons with rockets. In both cases the Germans were defending with Fokker Eindeckers.

You can read all about it here:


The models are mostly 1/600th scale planes and balloons from Tumbling Dice, but one of the Fokkers and the two Nieuports are scratchbuilds.
