In Wings of Glory - Tripods & Triplanes, the knights of the air of WW1 battle against colossal fighting machines sent by the Martians to invade Earth. Take control of an awesome Martian Tripod, set upon bringing death and destruction on our planet...or fly on the most advanced flying machines created by Mankind during World War One, and try to use them to win the War of the Worlds.
Tripods & Triplanes is a new, stand-alone game, fully compatible with the WW1 Wings of Glory collection. Tripods & Triplanes introduces a new twist to the game, as the historical setting is turned upside down by the crossover with H.G. Wells' imaginative novel "The War of the Worlds."
In Tripods & Triplanes, what should be the final year of the war becomes the Year of the Invasion. Two different generations of Tripods, one more advanced than the other, land on Earth, in two waves of invasion. Their alien technology and deadly weapons make them terrifying opponents for the Earthlings...Fortunately, the recent advances in weapon technology during WW1 give Mankind a fighting chance against these monstrous invaders...
The Tripods & Triplanes Starter Set includes everything you need to start playing in this new setting: a beautiful "Locust" tripod miniature (fully painted and assembled miniature, with its maneuver deck and vehicle reference card); a "tripod - hunting," rocket-armed Nieuport 16 model (with the historical colors of French Ace Jean Navarre); rules, counters, damage decks, terrain elements, and more!
You can use any airplane models in the WW1 Wings of Glory collection and add them to your battles against the Tripods, and expand your Martian army with additional Tripod Packs.
