This is my map campaign. Basically every game we play will contribute towards the changing map. Each army (british, german, soviet, italian and french) all have their own objectives. I didn't include the Americans because the French army will sort of count as the Americans as if they get defeated they will retreat to England and if they want to retake France like D-Day they take the American place. Just making it one army complicates things less. Plus I will be using American minies to represent the French as I don't have french models. The Italians will also have German models to represent them. The whole campaign will take ages to finish but I'll post a battle report each time something goes on. If a counter has a roman numeral on it it means that it is an army. The game starts in 1940, after the phoney war has finishes and Poland has fallen.
