Sandstorm – Air Campaigns over the Western Desert 1941-1942

Welcome to the Western Desert! It’s November 1942, the Afrika Korps is in full retreat after the decisive battle of El Alamein. Ahead of the pursuing 8th Army the RAF’s Desert Airforce seek to pound the Axis forces from the air as they flee towards the Libyan-Tunisian border.

A desperate struggle for air superiority rages as RAF Spitfires and Tomahawks confront predatory Luftwaffe Bf109s and the deadly Fw190 only just arriving in the desert theatre.

Sandstorm is a two-player campaign system for Blood Red Skies, pitching you headfirst into the swirling furball over the Egyptian and Libyan deserts. You’ll take the role of a British & Commonwealth wing commander, or a German Oberstleutnant, managing your squadrons of pilots as they soar across the desert sands! Pilots will grow in stature over the course of the campaign, starting out as untested rookies and hopefully ending as battle-hardened aces.

Every single engagement, however large or small will give your pilots the chance to make a name for themselves. This campaign system is designed to work alongside the brand new Air Strike! supplement, using several of the new scenarios and the rules for attacking ground targets to great effect.
