Just a question about Bolt Action in North Africa.
I take it besides miniatures and the rules book, what else do you need the army books for Germany, Britain and Italy?
I have the starter set rule book and it has basic units, is this enough or do the army books really add anything specific for the North African campaign?

In regards playing Bolt Action if you have the army books for GErmany, Britain and Italy I really do not think you need the Bolt Action North Africa book unless it has some scenarios and special lists that you like and want. I've run plenty of North Africa games with just the army books mentioned and the related specific theater lists and had a blast.

I agree. I have Duel in the sun and it refers to units in their respective army books. It does have some cool scenarios.
