Entry # Time Turn Player Title Entry
13 9/7/2021 1:37:00 PM Turn 1 German Message The bombardment in 19 is at 5-1, not 5-2. The +1 modifier to the defense for a CA only applies against a naval bombardment, not an air bombardment.

That said, you still lost the roll.

Yes, any time a die roll occurs, by either player, and you own the advantage, you can use it to do a re-roll. After the re-roll, the advantage passes to the other player.
12 9/7/2021 11:37:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Can I Play the advantage and reroll?

Message from Allies:
Thanks Scott - duly noted.

The 2nd TAF will bombard the Coastal Artillery in Area 19 and the 9th AF will hit the CA in Grandcamp.

Rolling for the attack on Area 19.

Odds 5:2

Allied roll first


10 9/7/2021 8:41:00 AM Turn 1 German Message On Omaha, 716/726 also flips in addition to the CA.

Try not to group many die rolls together like you did going forward because if someone wants to use the advantage to re-roll a die roll they need to do it before other actions occur.

On to your two air bombardments next, which must both be designated before any occur.
9 9/7/2021 4:19:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Hi Scott,

I think that means that the CA's in all beach areas are spent and you have two points of AP to allocate in Omaha beach.

Message from Allies:
Hi Scott,

Thanks for the information - really useful.

Dice roll in order of bombardments below - allies first

Bombardment on Juno beach.

8:4

Bombardment on Gold beach

8:4

Bombardment on Omaha beach - primary target CA

8:4

Bombardment on Utah beach

8:3
7 9/6/2021 6:49:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Hi Martin. You handled the para phase correctly and the assault on area 7, which resulted in the CA going D2.

However, for the Sword bombardment, the defense is only 4 (1 for TEM, 2 for fortification, and one for a fresh CA), so your naval bombardment will flip the CA and the infantry unit. All the other naval bombardments will be at 8-4, except Utah Beach which is 8-3.
6 9/6/2021 9:30:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Before I do the rest - just checking that result 20:19 means CA unit only spent

Thanks

Message from Allies:
Hi Scott,

If I start with Naval Bombardment Phase on Area 8 Sword Beach (just to check I am getting this right):

Attack with 8

Primary Target CA

Defence: Unit 5, TEM 1, +2 fortified area, + 1 CA in target area = 9

Odds 8:9

Attackers dice first




4 9/6/2021 9:17:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Hi Scott,

Based on combat result 13:10 I have marked the CA in area 7 as D2

Message from Allies:
June 6 airborne phase:

Area 7

6/3 seizes Merville - Sword Beach bridge

6/5 assaults CA in area 7 at 3:3, Allied DRs first

Area 49

82/507 seizes the Pont l'Abbe - Ste. Mere Eglise Bridge

Area 50

101/502 & 3 seize the bridges into Carentan and Montebourg.
2 9/5/2021 4:46:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Hi Martin. I'm back and ready to play, but I am not sure what you have done here.

If your first action is a para unit attack against the CA in area 7, there should be a die roll showing the results of this attack here in ACTS. To do this, you would go to the "submit die roll request" function, choose 4 dice to roll, and then put something like this in the comment section: "June 6 airborne phase: 6/3 assaults CA in area 7 at 3-3; Allied DRs first."

I'm not sure what to do with your vlog file. You will track the results that are generated by the ACTS die rolls in the Vassal module, but we do not need to exchange these vassal files.
1 9/4/2021 7:40:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Hi Scott,

I have read the rules!

My opening moves are plotted and sent by separate email.

Please let me know if in right format or anything I should be doing.

First attack in area 7 - 1 para unit taking on CA

Thanks
