Re: Cavalry and Stack Question

But my question was not what the union should do but what should the CSA do with Shelby in till late September 1861? Plus it seems to me based on your response it doesn't matter what Shelby does.

As CSA Should I Build 1 set of IW's or 2 and When

I did a search and read many posts on CSA building iron works. I'm wondering what the best strategy is when playing against the AI vs. a PBEM game. From my search it appears that when playing against the AI you should only build 1 set of IW's in 1861 as you capture more than enough rifles for your n...

Re: Cavalry and Stack Question

Here's what I don't understand. What can you do with Shelby in KY/TN before October 61? So for June to late September what is the opportunity cost to using him in MO? I do see your potential point about the Union taking Springfield and then wasting troops trying to go for Arkansas. However the Union...

Re: Cavalry and Stack Question

Just some clarification. The reason I mentioned Shelby destroying stockades and small town was because the AI would go after Fayetteville in 62. I don't see much need for Shelby in TN in 61 so I thought I could destroy the union supply chain just west and north of Springfield. Once Springfield is se...

What if You Had No Replacements For Light Artillery

Here's an interesting question. I'm managing all my replacement chits. So say I never buy any for light artillery. Now I have a mixed brigade like one of the CSA 200 strength Virginia brigades that have a 6 pounder artillery element. Over time due to movement or fighting the 6 pound artillery elemen...

Re: Cavalry and Stack Question

Thanks for the reply. My idea for Shelby was to run around west and north of Missouri capturing stockades and then destroying them. Same for some small towns. And of course to do some raids against the farm income regions. Forest and others would hunt down the union troops doing raids or landings. O...

Cavalry and Stack Question

I have two questions that I would love all the experts to voice in on. As the CSA you have some really good cavalry commanders (Shelby Forest,etc.). What is the better option for these guys. To create a division of cavalry (or mostly cavalry) units and then put them in a corps, or to run them as an ...

Re: AI Supply What Am I Missing

Thanks for the reply. As for Fayetteville I actually captured that city and own it. So the CSA could not have gotten supplies there. I think the rest of your answer probably explains it. Athena recovers cohesion very fast due to the bonuses which means longer attacking power. The 2 X 4 element train...

AI Supply What Am I Missing

I really like this game and have spent lot's of time on it. Right now I', playing as the Union at Colonel level difficulty, +2 AI activation, normal aggressiveness, no simple supply, +1 AI spotting and unit losses for moving (both me and AI). So here's a couple of the problems. First I had captured ...
