Just after posting my "halfway there" we have hit a bit of a snag. As detailed elsewhere (http://www.ageod-forum.com/showthread.php?t=18366
) we have some trouble with the infantry vs cavalry battle results. Squarian has his supply system guarded by infantry brigades. As a result of the easy with which my cavalry brigade can destroy his infantry brigades, this cavalry brigade can roll his complete suply system - hopping from one depot to the next, killing off the infantry brigades, and drawing supply from the depots.
Though great fun for me
, this is a tad unrealistic. So for now we will wait a bit to see what the Powers That Be have to say about this problem...
Meanwhile I will post the turns that we alredy have run, edited so they don't show my genius masterplan to defeat the perfide Austrians.
Late May, turn 90
I reach Leipzig, Daun arrives back in Torgau. It is a way to defend Berlin I suppose....
I forgot to assault Leipzig. I order one column to assault it this turn, the others will dig in and await Daun.
A detachment takes Chemnitz (once again).
Not much other developments.
I raise a cavalry unit.
Early June, turn 91
Spring season is almost over. The Austrians are sieging Munster and Bautzen (a bit east of Dresden). At both places they hit the garrison, destroying the unit at Bautzen. They also send a siege unit to Olmutz, preparing to take back the part of Austria I occupied. I had expected this earlier...
I take Leipzig, gaining 6 (!!) morale. Daun stays in Torgau.
I send Wutginau to Munster, to try chase away the French.
Still waiting on the attack... contemplating going west with my army, attacking the French from behind. A bit wild though...
I buy another grenadier depot btn.
Late June, turn 92
Bautzen is lost. I am surprised it was not taken earlier.
At Munster the French reinforcements arrive just days before Wutginau does. He does not get the information on time, and attacks, only to be beaten back. I lose 2400 men, the enemy 3100, but they stay around Munster. I retreat, and lose one morale.
Wedell his men are almost up to strength at last. I detach the two most depleted brigades, and send the rest of his column together with Frederic to Stettin again.
The main armies of Austria and Prussia stay where they are - at Torgau and Leipzig respectively - and glare at each other.
I send the cavalry brigade that took Chemnitz on to Erfurt. A bit of a risk - I cannot see the strength of the enemy garrison there - but cutting of the supply of the French (or threatening to do that) is worth it.
I can buy a regular infantry depot btn.
