Thanks so much for the quick replies!
GaiusJulius78, I completely forgot about the supply map mode, so that will help. And I will try what you suggested with the depots, and thanks for clarifying the rules that surround them.
Also the information on a stalemate being ok, this is the result I always get, with different point variations depending on what I tried, so I guess that is ok then and I am doing well enough, so thanks for pointing that out.
I have been watching H Gilmer3's Let's Play videos on YouTube
and have learnt a lot from them (I am still watching them, there are a lot to get through!) and they have helped with the troop rearranging, but nothing I try with the French/Bavarians help, they are awful
Thanks for the info on trying to avoid niggly battles loki, I wasn't aware of that. Good to know.
Armed with this new information, I shall tackle the scenario again!
