Mechanised Aces
What is Mechanised Aces?
Mechanised Aces is a build-up campaign system that allows players to expand their armies over time. Players start with 500-point lists and build up to 900-point lists throughout the campaign.

During the campaign each player gets to make their own Mechanised Ace and tell his heroic story during the Allied advance up Italy towards the gothic line.

The Story So Far
This Mechanised Aces campaign continues the story of Infantry Aces, as the Allies are now breaking out of Cassino and Anzio to fight their way to the Gothic Line.

Historically, after the Allies secured the Anzio beachhead they were supposed to help surround the German troops retreating from the Liri Valley. General Mark Clark instead took his men and invaded Rome, wanting the honour of taking the first of the Axis powers’ capital cities. The Axis troops retreating from Cassino and the Liri Valley were able to slip through the Allied lines and help fortify the German defences.

The choices made during these battles are now yours. As an Allied commander, will you go for the glory of taking Rome, or help capture the retreating Axis troops? As the Axis player, can you hold off the Allied advance and break through their lines to reinforce the Gothic line?

Are you doomed to repeat history or can you change it?
