While playing around with the Terrain Overlay, click on a stack then tap number 7, I was shocked to see that range in mountains was not the normal 99 it is in all other areas, but rather a tiny 4. I gather that this means, long distant fire is almost nil in the mountains, and that any medium and hea...

If they are in a "colonial area," Turkish, Bedouin camel cavalry have a special trait that reduces supply consumption by 25% for their stack. Needless to say, this could be a valuable trait for a force operating in the desert. Anyone have an idea of how to identify which areas are "Co...

Push to get Russian NM below 75: 2 nasty decisions will then apply. The Tsar takes command resulting in a bad GHQ and worse, Rasputin comes resulting in more loss of more NM and increased chance of Rebellion.
