Ouch - Squarians post shows that I am running a bit behind
. Not that much happened....
Turn 6 Late November 1756
I await the coming of the Prussians - but they decline. Probably a wise decision, as there is snow on the ground. I retreat my troops to winter quarters.
The cavalry at Chemnitz got repulsed by the infantry - a good sign, but not conclusive, as the infantry was supported by some guns. I lose 340 cavalry, the enemy 170 infantry.
I buy some replacements - to keep the troops on strength throughout the winter.
Turn 7, Early December 1756
Snow - I buy two militia units.
Turn 8, Late December 1756
More snow, nothing of note happens. I buy some Insurrection infantry - militia with a fancy name.
Turn 9, Late December 1756
Even more snow. Daun arrives in Prague, as does Charles de Lorraine. Charles takes the command of the Bohemian Army over from Browne. Daun gets to command his own (Silesian) Army. I try to detach the columns from the Bohemian Army and attach them to the Silesian, but that won't work - they revert to being part of the Bohemian Army. As soon as the snow permits I will send Charles east, and reorganize the Silesian Army.
I am a bit surprised that I have more money than men...I thought it would be the other way around. Maybe later, when France and the Russians join? Or did the last update chance things here?
Anyway - no men to buy a unit.
Turn 10, Early January 1757
Snow, snow, snow.
The treaty of Versailles is signed, Russia will get into the game on our side.
The holy Roman Empire declares war on Prussia.
I get a total of 6 EP, 10 NM and 2 VP for these events... We are both around the 120 NM. Squarian is leading the VP race though, with about 280-180.
I buy a siege gun, to help liberate Silesia.
Turn 11, late January 1757
Some lessening of the snow in the west, but around Austria it is still all white.
Some of the troops in Wien are ready to move, but I wait till better weather. Charles of Lorriane, who has taken over command from Browne, is send to the east, to lead the liberating of Silesia. Daun is taking command of the troops around Prague (Which leads to the army of Silesia staying in Prague, and the army of Bohemia going to Silesia...).
