Quote from: Grahame on May 08, 2018, 03:29:54 pmAll I need to know can indeed be written in two lines - I need to be able to track what has happened to units either destroyed or downgraded - there will be a results slip to be filled in after each game which will provide me with what I need.Heroes will be able to be added to your army either at the start or later on - it is one of the ways to make sure that you will have 24 pts on the table but remember they can be killed. Heroes & officers can always be replaced. There is a mathematical possibility that you could end up fielding less than 24 points by the end of the campaign so be careful about the balance between must haves which can be replaced and could haves that cannot eg your must haves are worth 24 pts at the start of the campaign - you then get all your could haves killed. In the next battle one of your elite[6pt] must haves runs off table and comes back as a  pt unit for the game after - you will then only have 22 pts left but you could then use heroes to bring it back to 24 pts BUT if your must haves were only 16 points at the start because you have maxed out on could haves then you could end up in big trouble by the end!As I have stated previously - officers need to look after their troops. Be prepared to withdraw units from the field.I will review the rates of attrition across the campaign as a whole and may send reinforcements to the front - but don't count on it!Grahame
