Before each scenario, I'll do what I've done this time - post the brief, the orbats and the support choices you can ask battalion HQ for.

At the end of the battle, please note down kills on each section/damage to each vehicle before you pick them up and put them away, as well as on sections that break and flee or are reduced to zero actions. Kills are not necessarily dead - there's a decent chance they'll either miss the next game or be patched up and return to duty anyway, but you will want to remember that this is a campaign!

Note that you will not necessarily be using the same company on two consecutive battles, depending on the flow of the campaign. You will also be allowed to call on replacements sometimes - details of that will be revealed to each faction separately.

The other thing that gets tracked post-action is the Battalion CO's and your men's opinion of your Company CO: depending on results this can go up or down and will affect things like how many support points you get, extra cards in the deck, your forces status (Regular/Veteran/Elite). Some of this will be based on tables like that in the Sharp End campaign supplement for COC, some I'll rule on as the umpire.

P.S. Obviously, do remember the officer killed roll when he's attached to a section that takes kills - d10 <= number of kills and you lose the officer.

P.P.S. There are probably bonuses of some sort available if you maintain an in character Battalion War Diary for publication. I'll be writing a battle report for each game.

P.P.P.S. Obviously supports available will vary from scenario to scenario, but there is a finite limit to them, so (for example) if you get a bunch of tanks destroyed don't expect their replacements to be instantaneous.
