Nexus Games have sent details of several upcoming Wings of War products.

From their announcement:

Wings of War, the game series which recreates aerial combat in the XX century, will continue to grow in 2010, with many new releases covering both the first and second World War series, as well as new miniatures. NG International, the game’s publisher, is working on several new products that will be released this year.

For the WWI period, the publishing schedule for the first half of the year includes the boxed set Flight of Giants, introducing early bombers, and two booster packs: Hit and Run will add airplanes like the SPAD VII and the Aviatik D.I, while Crossfire will bring to the game new aircrafts like the Bristol Fighter and the Rumpler C. IV-VII, with their respective maneuver decks.

The WW1 miniatures line starts the year with a new set to be released on February: the Balloon Busters set, featuring one balloon model (Drachen Caquot/AE800) and one airplane (Nieuport 16), in two different painting schemes. This line will also be expanded during the year with a series of Bombers (Caproni CA.3 / Gotha G.V., in two different painting schemes), a revised Deluxe Edition with four exclusive models and everything needed to start to play, and two new airplanes series. The Wings of War WWI Miniatures Series IV will include the models Se5a, Pfalz D.III, Breguet XIV – Rumpler C.IV, in three different painting schemes, arriving in May, and the 5th series will introduce the Fokker E.III, Halberstadt D.III, Morane-Saulnier, Airco D.H.2, each one in three different versions.

The new releases for WW2 include the boxed set Rain of Destruction, which will introduce into the game multi-engine bombers and heavy fighters such as the B-25 Mitchell, He.111 and Me.110, with all related rules. This set is scheduled for the second half of the year. Four expansions are also planned: in the spring, the Squadron Packs The Last Biplanes (Gloster Gladiator, Fiat CR 42 Falco) and Revolution in the Skies (Polikarpov I 16 and others); and at the end of 2010, Winds of Fire (Hurricane, Zero and other fighters of the Pacific front) and Ground Attack (Ilyushhin II-2 Sturmovik and other dive bombers).

The WW2 miniatures line will be expanded by the release of the 2nd and 3rd series of Airplane Packs, as well a series of Bombers. Arriving in the spring, the Wings of War Miniatures WWII Series II will feature the planes Hawker Hurricane, Dewoitine D.520, Junkers Ju.87 “Stuka” and Aichi D3A1 Val, each in three different painting schemes. The 3rd series will include the planes Curtiss P-40E Warhawk, Yakovlev Yak-1, Kawasaki Ki-61 and Reggiane Re.2001 Falco. A first series of Bombers Packs is also coming this year, introducing the models Henkel He.111 and North American B-25 Mitchell, each in two different painting schemes.
