Bolt Action - Desert War Campaign tracking

Campaign season


This fall of 2020 really seems to be a true campaign season! I’m currently leading a Song of Ice and Fire campaign, playing in a two player Sharp Practice campaign and participating in a 10+ player Bolt Action campaign. This campaign starts with all units as inexperienced and if they succeed in both surviving and doing good in the battles they will evolve to regulars and then veterans and learn special skills. So some tracking is needed and I will do it in my notebook and here. Follow  the faith of DAK forces on this page...


Battles

Battle 1. Sectors vs.Marko's Free France army - RESULT: VICTORY!





Battle 2. Demoltion vs. Tero's British - RESULT: VICTORY!





Battle 3. Double Envelopment vs. Juha's Commonwealth - RESULT: destroyed 8 enemy units, but too many escaped battlefield 25-14 victory to Juha

Then continued to move forward on the road and eliminated two more enemy units (antitank team and their transport), unfortunately after that they were hit by enemy Grant and the panzer was destroyed, but luckily the crew bailed out and survived!

  • Gunner skill: Adrenalin rush (fire x2 at the same target)
  • Infantry skills: move up (change Down to Advance), pass through
Story:
  1. Battle: destroyed an enemy vehicle and half of a unit of infantry, foolish enough to enter a building within it's LOS
  2. Battle: deployed in a position to shoot directly at an enemy infantry unit, scored a hit on the first order die of the game! Kept that unit Down for most of the game and eventually destroyed them and a mortar team that was too close...
  3. Battle: deployed on a hill with excellent view to entire battlefield. I misunderstood, that night fight (visibility) rules would only be in effect during the first round and hence I hardly had visibility to many shots. Spotter managed two indirect shots (before being killed), but neither the 6+ nor the 5+ hit
