Gray, NCP has suffered from a lack of a volunteer with the time, patience, historical knowlege, dedication and people skills that you posess. Lofifly has done a fine job with WIA, but does he have the time to prevent ROP from becoming the dead end that NCP has become? That is the question about NCP ...

As the manpower strength of elements is abstracted by the number of hits an element can sustain, reckoning things by manpower numbers becomes an excercize in frustration. Generally in this game an element should represent two American or British companies and one German or French. The number of "hit...

I believe that historically, the only chance for British and/or French intervention on the side of the Confederacy would have been had they freed the slaves. But, what were they fighting for?

Careful; we do not want to turn cavalry into Panzers. The efficiency of light cav of all nations in the recon role was patchy at best. Most famous heavy cavalry charges were battlefield expedients, due to shortage, or disorder of infantry troops. Spiking cannon was less prevalent than some think. Ho...

The Schlieffen Plan was faulty. It aimed for a quick knockout blow ignoring logistics, the fatigue of right wing long marches, and Brit intervention caused by attacking Belgium. Two more Korps would have been no help on the right wing, as they couldnt be supplied. Schlieffen wasnt the only one promi...

Hi By the way, as you can see in the attached picture of my current 1775 campaign as the British, the fact that von Knyphausen is embedded with his own regiment don't impede him at all to actually command a "wing" of the army, as by chance, its how i'm using him :thumbsup: [ATTACH]5186[/ATTACH] You...

Ownership is not the same as command of a regiment. Fusilier Regiment von Knyphausen, for example, was owned by von Knyphausen but commanded by Col. von Bork. General Lieutenant von Knyphausen was busy commanding a division, or "wing." If we are taking ownership to mean command , why not imbed Howe ...

As I understand it, a depot represents not only the hex it occupies, but it's relationship to the owning side's supply line and capability. Thus Jackson's corps gorged on what they could and burned the rest, when they captured the Union depot at Manassas in 1862. It was impracticable to form a Confe...

I too am considering purchasing WIA and have BoA. Certain issues from BoA, such as portage links have been addressed. Others, such as AI winter death marches have not.
Do the German forces still have commanders imbedded in regiments, or has that oob/command issue been fixed?
