On February 21, 2012 Wizards of the Coast (WotC) will release their next major Axis & Allies miniatures game. It’s a brand new air-power based game, called Axis & Allies Air Force Miniatures, and the first set will be called Angels 20.

In early February WotC brands and marketing released their fall 2011 catalogue. The catalogue contained information on a new WWII Air force Mini’s game that until that point had only been a rumour. The release caught the designer Rich Baker off guard when word spread through the gaming forums. Within days we got our first look at Angels 20.
