FIGHTING WINGS Counters

JD Webster publishes a semi-regular newsletter, Airpower, in support of his game designs and air combat gaming generally. In this newsletter he has published a number of new Fighting Wings Aircraft Data Cards (ADCs). Some of these were pre-release versions of aircraft which became have since become part of Whistling Death, but many others have yet to be published in any module. As a result, no counters yet exist for these aircraft.

To remedy this situation, I have produced PDF files of counters for these aircraft. In addition to the planes not yet off the drawing board and published in real cardboard, I have also included counters for aircraft that have been published already, but in alternative color schemes more suitable for battle in other theatres of operation than the one they were first published in. For example, several RAF and Luftwaffe planes from Achtung-Spitfire! are presented in Desert warpaint, for use against or alongside the included Italian aircraft.

I assume that folks who download these will be able to make up their own counters without any instructions from me, but if you want some tips on getting a top-notch result, I can refer you to this page of tips on mounting your own counters on ConSimWorld.
