TheDoctorKing wrote:Also it is difficult to combine anarchist and regular Republican units. Basically, the Anarchists are a pain in the butt, useful for defending positions but pretty much handicapped on the offensive. They have a couple of leaders and you can form mixed brigades and divisions with them and get a few into the war.
the regular republican militia once you can get them trained up to regular status and formed into brigades.

TheDoctorKing wrote:So we have a possible capitalist/social democratic Spanish Republic, with French aid, and [now] a possible anarchist Spanish Republic, with Makhno commanding a cohesive and organized anarchist force. We probably ought to have some options for the Nationalists as well...
I see these as potential political option choices early on. Going to take a lot of work, though.

So, french Front Populaire suddenly gave to frenches many social and economical advances, all even not in their program and they had said impossible! It was successful: it made the french revolution end, the Left government made the french workers let the economy to bosses and to the State.
So, even at now, the spanish anarchists indirectly made the french Front Populaire still popular for french workers..
French Front Populaire won't make a spanish revolution sucessful, which could (re)start one in France. At best, French government would make like Russia: an help if it let the spanish revolution die.

For instance, explain how these potential forces impact units, leaders, income and tactics?
ERISS wrote:Funny how the trotskits advocate what they destroyed when they had power, acting like, and even worst than the Madrid governement.
Do as we tell, not like we did.
Anarchists, Durruti, in Spain: Yes!
Makhnovists in Ukraine: No.
You may ask for being included in the beta forum, where there is some material, but I don't think the game will be continued. Or maybe a small patch in a far future.
Durk wrote:in Spain This was a collective, localize commune.
Very different than our idea of anarchists as bomb throwers.
Durk wrote:Well, kind of exactly like in the Ukraine, except in Barcelona it was an industrial model, not a rural model.
Durk wrote:Kind of funny. I hope you meant to be funny by calling Barcelona merely a town.
I get your point, but still - there are/were differences in what syndicalism meant.
