Is the Mk.IV Tripod the ultimate weapon of the invaders… or is this monstrous achievement of alien technology just the forerunner of even worse things to come? With its powerful energy shields, long-range heat ray, multiple black smoke launchers, the “Cuttlefish” is as yet undefeated on the battlefield - but the best WW1 aces are ready to find out who will be the first to destroy one.
Each WW1 Wings of Glory - Tripods & Triplanes Expansion Pack includes all you need to play with it - a pre-painted and fully assembled model, a deck of maneuver cards, counters, and a tripod reference card.
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 & Triplanes is a new, stand–alone game, fully compatible with the WW1 Wings of Glory collection. 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 final year of the war 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...
