Ares Games, the Tuscany-based publisher that recently acquired the rights to the War of the Ring board game, announced an agreement with Andrea Angiolino and Pier Giorgio Paglia, the creators of Wings of War, the bestselling game of aerial combat in World War I and World War II.
Ares will publish the game under a new brand name, Wings of GloryWings of Glory will be released with a new rulebook, but it will be compatible with the previously released Wings of War products.  Ares Games will initially focus on creating new miniatures for the game, but also plans on producing new starter sets.
The P-40 Was Used by the Flying Tigers--Actual Mini May Differ
The first Wings of Glory products that will be released will be four airplanes for the World War II game series: the American P-40, the Russian Yak-1, the Japanese Ki-61, and the Italian Re-2001 Falco.  Ares Games is planning a Starter Set featuring those four planes, introductory rules, and all the elements needed to play right out of the box.
Like War of the Ring, Wings of War was previously published by Nexus.  A new English language version of War of the Ring will be released this fall (see “Ares Games Gets Rights to ‘War of the Ring’”).  A schedule of releases for Wings of Glory will be announced shortly.
