Cossacks shouldnt be able to penetrate your lines if you have a division or more in an Offensive or Assault command posture. Units in a Defensive or Passive posture will let a cossack scoot right on through.

The Synch Move command requires that the Army HQ be present in the region. You give the Army HQ the Synch Move command along with any other Corps you wish to coordinate. Move the Army HQ to the intended region and you'll notice that the Synched Corps are coming along for the ride. The intent of the ...

Sorry about the delay in posting. I caught a bad flu over the weekend and I've been too sick to do much of anything.

The Walk-Through will next cover Battles, the Battle Report, and the Command Posture/ROEs.

Just give me a day or two to shake this flu and I'll be back in action.

Unfortunately, with bad weather on the horizon, I need to hustle the French troops into Wien as quickly as possible. This operation requires a none-too-subtle ad...

Ah, I see what you mean. Yes indeed. You can remove these units from the Division "container".

Look at Post #9 in this thread for details on how its done.

I think... stress think... that it works the same way in AACW as it does in NCP.

I'm not sure what you mean by a vertical stack. If you mean multiple Forces in the same region.... you can click-drag units out of Forces and drop them into other Forces at will if they are in the same region.

Yes indeed.

As it happens, a detailed summary on how combat is resolved is being prepared at this moment. I'm looking at posting the summary within a day or two as the Walk-Through unfolds.

While French troops managed to take the fortress, Archduke Karl’s Austrians arrived on the scene to promptly force a withdrawal to Verona. Although casualties among St. Cyr’s Corps were heavy, Fren...

Walk Through Comments

Please feel free to post feedback on the Walk-Through in this thread. I feel like I'm posting in a vacuum.

Is this the kind of information that's helpful or am I just confusing everyone with too much detail?

Note: You will see losses referred to as Hits in both the game and the manual but this term is slightly misleading. When a unit is ‘hit’ in combat, the actual damage it suffers from that ‘hit’ may vary from between one (1) and three (3) losses depending on the type of enemy unit that scored the ‘hit...

Fortunately, this is one of the easier restructurings you’ll probably do. We only need to reduce the Command points being used from 22 to 14 (St Cyr’s CP allowance) in order to eliminate this penalty. We can do this any number of ways but since we have eight loose batteries of artillery, our problem...

Command penalties reduce the movement speed and combat values of each of the elements in a particular Force. Not only does St. Cyr’s Corps now move 35% slower than it would without the penalty, it is also 35% less efficient in combat. Now, I realize that there are many of you out there thinking, “35...
