This is my very first AAR so skewer and abuse away!
I am playing the Siberian Whites in a 3 player grand campaign.
Alikchi is playing the evil, perfidious Reds.
Digital_Pariah is playing my allies, the Southern Whites.
Now we just have to wheedle Digital_Pariah to write an AAR.
You know you want to, all the cool kids are doing it!
Anyway, we are four turns into the game, I started with a fairly standard opening taking out all of the Red cities in Siberia and the east. I abandoned Uralsk on the first turn, moved that corps to Orenburg and i just wacked Blucher in Orsk. I am now going to blow the Orsk depot because it is of no use to me and this way a parisan army will not be able to supply itself from that convenient lvl 4 depot.
I sped White troops west as fast as they took their objectives in Siberia, so at this point most of the white army is in Ufa. Unfortunately they are going to have to stay in Ufa for turn since their cohesion is about zero.
The eastern troops are watching for partisans and robbing my Whites of precious supplies. The Ural troops, especially my Bashkars, are converting railways to me.
The Czechs are largely sitting outside Ekaterineburg... yes, outside since for two turns one of the two division commanders and the Czech legion commander have been inactive. I just walked into an empty Ekaterineburg in the most recent turn but i have NO idea where the 16.000 Bolshevik garrison went. I think to Perm but we shall see.
The Komuch and the Czech legion on the Volga went hyper and took Simbirsk on the third turn and Kazan on the fourth, interestingly enough against Trotski in both battles. Don't tell my Red opponent but my forces in Kazan have 105 combat power at the moment due to casualties and exhaustion.
I know that this is the standard Komuch move to grab the gold train, and i do have 792 money at the moment, but i question how smart this is in the long run. The Komuch People's Army could very easily be scattered or destroyed here and the Whites can not reinforce for a couple more turns until i convert more railroads. Shortly after that my Socialist brother Czechs go home to create their own country. I understand since they have been waiting about forever for this day, but boy does this leave my naughty bits flapping in the wind waiting to get a Trotski bris.
My fifth turn is just consolidation and converting more raillines. I am ignoring Saratov at the moment and am going to send the Czech legion to Perm to anchor my north front, and i will send the Middle Siberia corps to replace the Czechs when they leave.
I don't know what else to do at the moment... I built 1 mountain division and 1 infantry division as reinforcements but i lack and spare leaders. I am going to have to spend 15 engagement buying a war factory in Omsk because i am horribly short of war supplies. That is 15 engagement that could hire generals though so i am hurting.
I requisition in every region that has 60% or higher support and reform in regions with less.
Thats about it so far.
