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 and Triplanes is a new, stand-alone game, but it is fully compatible with the WW1 Wings of Glory collection. With Tripods and Triplanes your aerial battles will never be the same!
Wings of Glory is probably the most popular World War One aerial combat tabletop game in the world, with a great collection of pre-painted, ready-to-play model airplanes. Thanks to its elegant and innovative game system, it is possible to start playing minutes after opening the rules. Each airplane has a unique, historically accurate, maneuver deck, yet it is easy to play.
Wings of Glory - 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 year the war ends 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...
