Warlord Games Taking Pre-Orders For Blood Red Skies Sets

Warlord Games is coming out with a new WWII miniatures game. This one take place in the skies over the heads of the troops fighting below. It’s called Blood Red Skies and it gives players a chance to recreate those classic dogfights over Europe and the Pacific. They have lots of different bundles available to order, depending on if you want everything, just the Axis, just the Allies, or just particular factions.

From the announcement:

In honour of the anniversary of the start of The Battle Of Britain – 10th of July 1940, we are proud to announce that Blood Red Skies is now available to Advance Pre-order for late 2017!

Blood Red Skies is scheduled for release early 2018. Pre-order yours today to receive your sets 1 month prior to general release!

    Interesting! I’m kinda surprised Warlord decided to dive into aerial combat gaming. It looks beautiful though. And the planes appear to be at least mono-colored, if not fully pre-painted (can’t quite tell from the photos.)

    • Planes are colored plastic, from what I’d seen.

        The Me109s in the photos definitely have yellow nose paint, camo and markings. That being said. I would never pre-order a miniatures game where the miniatures seem not be the center of attention in marketing materials. It looks suspiciously like a lack of faith in the quality of the product.

          Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing: Why are you hiding the minis? Are they crap? Or maybe the final production sculpts aren’t ready yet.

            At 1/200 scale these planes are what, 6mm scale. Simply treat them as pawns in boardgames.

      I too am surprised. With Wings of War, the dead and burried Axis & Allies: Miniatures, crad-games like Down in Flames, and a not so recently kickstarted Battle of Britain game, this moves seems like wading into a swamp.
