Looks like I'm way too late to this party, but if you need another player for whatever reason let me know.

Yay, convenience! (Will miss Ugeek, but glad to have B_C vol in. As... {checking notes} ...Brassiere?  :o)

MetalDog...saddle the hell up, brother.  You might well be going to Montana soon.

Note to corps commanders: if Blucher gets orders to deploy to Montana, LET HIM! The women there aren't very cute anyway, compared to Spain or Italy. (Although I will fairly consider evidence to the contrary.)

Remember, never interrupt an enemy when he's making an error.

Cy,

Have you covered supply rules yet? I don't recall them being explained....

Well, well, well, sounds like UCG is OUT (never a worry, life is grim that way) and B_C is IN.  I will update the roster immediately, placing UCG in the reserve should he later wish to mobilize.

Re: supply:  The first volume of this series does not take up supply in the detail II & III do.  The argument from the author being these campaigns are too brief for supply to have a dramatic effect.  That said:

1.  The lines of communication for both armies will be clearly identified in the briefings and there will be an obligation to protect them.

2.  Each division has long supply trains that must be protected.  I may, in fact, inquire where they are in the line as appropriate.  Losing supply trains has a deleterious effect on morale.

All right.  I'm locking the teams in and will be sending out the team e-mails shortly.

As I say, to the battlefield!

Is that length covered by "add wagons", or something else?

@James:  A bit of both, though more the latter. Trains are calculated into the 500m/SP but then the non-French are further penalized by having their inefficient supply systems tacked onto the back of the divisions in the "add trains" calculation.

Do we know the length of our division trains or is it mysterious?   :)

serious question:  did the commanders back then honestly know the lengths of their division trains?  or was it mysterious?  ;)

I'd guess they had a reasonable guess, but not necessarily more.

I'm not telling Cyrano which answer to give, I just want to know what I do or don't know, so to speak.  :)
