Description

Raiding Aces is an escalation campaign that focuses on the special forces that fought in the Sahara from 1941-1943. It is all about the bold raids, sabotage missions, and convoy ‘bash ups’ fought in North Africa.

This is not your typical campaign. In the beginning you are a commander with a crazy notion of establishing a deep reconnaissance unit. Your superiors reluctantly agree to let you form your elite unit, but it will be up to you and your men to prove the value of your idea.

During the campaign you will write the story of your squadron as you fight through the sand dunes of the Sahara Desert and the wadis of the Mediterranean coastline. Your small force will grow and develop into an elite force ready for the final decisive battles in North Africa.

Like Infantry Aces, Raiding Aces is an escalation campaign. An escalation campaign is different from a normal campaign where players use the same points throughout the campaign. Instead, an escalation campaign starts at a small point level and works its way up to higher levels at the beginning of each campaign turn.

In the first turn you will command a 500-point force, then in the second campaign turn you will grow to 700 points and in the final turn you will get up to 900 points.

The escalation format is ideal for new players to learn raiding basics without the intimidating presence of tanks. It is also a great opportunity for veteran players to start a new raiding force with plenty of time between turns to get their men painted up and ready for combat.

The Raiding Aces Raiders Campaign Pack contains everything you need to run a Raiding Aces campaign. Included in the pack is:

  • 1x 40 page Raiding Aces Campaign rules booklet that contains all the rules need to guide you through an Raiding Aces campaign.
  • 1x Raiding Aces Wet-erasable campaign map (30" x 20") to track progress during the campaign.
  • 10x Raiding Aces Medal Pins to award to players.
  • 1x Wet-erasable marker pen.
  • 1x Plastic tube carry case for ease of transport and protecting your campaign map.

    So what are you waiting for? Raiding Aces gives players the chance to launch a campaign of havoc on the enemy supply lines!
