Please find below the Ground Battleboard. 

Since the minis are mounted on counters that have their combat values - there is no need to have combat values on the battleboard.

Units are either front line, support or in reserve in ground battles.  Up to six units may start a battle as front line (+1 extra unit for the side with better leadership).  Depending on the number of front line units - only so many air and artillery units may support the battle.  All other units are place in reserve.

All casulaties must be inflicted on front line units first (then support, then reserve).  If all of your front line units are elliminated, you must retreat from the battle.

After every round of combat, players roll dice to bring units up from reserve to front line.  Leaders strategic value (between 1 and 8 ) determine which column to roll on to see how many units can be brought forward.

AA guns roll against every enemy plane supporting the ground battle every round.  Most AA guns have an AA value of 5 - so 2 AA guns - you roll on the 10 AA value column against every ground supporting enemy plane.  An "R" is a return which just retreats the plane out of the battle - An "L" is a loss - or an elimination of the air unit.

That's essentially what you are looking at.  Terrain and weather modifiers are placed on the battleboard for easy reference.

Air Battleboard

This one is pretty straight forward - air to air combat is resolved every combat round prior to ground or naval combat.  Planes are placed either as air-to-air combat, bombers (ground support) or interceptors (fighters bypassing enemy fighters and attacking the bombers) - see the draft rules for more details.

Basically, players match up their air units (the side with more planes gets to match up that air combat) and you compare their air to air combat values and roll. 

For example, a spitfire has a 6 air-to-air combat value.  An ME109 has a 5 value.  So the British player rolls his attack on the +1 column and the German rolls on the -1 column.  An "r" is a return and forced the other plane to retreat out of the battle.  An "L" is an elimination.

Hi mark, the battleboard here doesn't match the one at Johns house. I think the one at his house excludes rough from the -1 penalty to support attack. Which one is the updated one?
