Re: Streets of Moscow Manstein

Hi faos333, Thanks for checking and you bring up a good point about the bonus units. While one can generate a fair amount of prestige over the course of the campaign, I have a feeling that by the middle of 43 I'll be burning it as fast as I can get it. But there are a slew of guards units in this sc...

Streets of Moscow Manstein

Over the past year I've been trying my hand at the GC 39-45 on Manstein. Lots of great videos and suggestions from folks in the forums but I've hit the wall , trying to get the bonus units in the Streets of Moscow. Part of the problem is that by using Nico's equipment file the Russians have two mobi...

Re: Wehrmacht vs SE or SS

Hi Pete, my error as there are only Wehrmacht and SS units that can be purchased.

Wehrmacht vs SE or SS

Been following Barracada and Soren's Manstein GC play through and they are both amazing. Haven't a clue as to how they figure out they strategies but, wow. That said in my attempt at a GC on Manstein, I've been dabbling with the early sturmpanzer for SP artillery. Currently I have 2 SS sturmpanzers ...

Re: Question about spotting range

Not to hijack this tread but when it comes to spotting range(s), do all cities and airfields have a spotting range of 2 hexes?

I suspect that this goes down to 1 hex during cloudy, rainy or snowy conditions as our units do but I'm not sure.

Thanks.

Re: Achievement doesnt get unlocked

Goose is correct about unlocking the higher difficulties. In the "vanilla" campaign (which mimics the original PG), you need to get a decisive victory in the USA West. Now that you finished the campaign and if you don't want to replay it, just open up the the save file where you start the USA West s...

Overstrength and Manstein

Muddling through the GC on Manstein and just started the 41 campaign with about 15K prestige and I'm wondering if there is a sweet spot for OS when playing on Manstein that is less than the maximum allowable for the campaign year. At colonel, general and FM, one can get buy with 12-13 strength units...

Re: Manstein unit spam on Warsaw North

Here's a link to the modified GC and a couple of others, along with the equipment file. I believe he tweaked Sealion and Afrika Korps as well, with AK getting two starting points. One for the Italians in the 30's and one for when Germans got involved. http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=...

Re: Manstein unit spam on Warsaw North

I'm using Nvkidd's equipment file and his updated GC files. for the 39 campaign there are 2 Krad units to pick from, a 36 and a 39. I feel that he's done an excellent job as it increases the enjoyment of the game for me. Lot's of mods available for folks to try but so far, I really enjoy his.

Re: Manstein unit spam on Warsaw North

Pete, Thanks for the link as it was very helpful. Managed a DV on turn 20 which was great. So it's off to The Spoils of War, which may not be great on Manstein... ;-) Erasermarek, 1 Krad for now but if any of my infantry gain a spotting hero, there will be more. A good unit, but at the moment rebuil...

Manstein unit spam on Warsaw North

So, thought I'd try my hand on a GC playing at/as Manstein. Wallowed through the 39 scenarios till Warsaw North and once I get within 2 hexes of the lower 2 victory objectives, the spam starts. Entrenched infantry and Calvary leave their position and the spammed ones create a new ring around the obj...

Re: limited prestige and high cost units

Thanks Goose! Good luck with your play through as it sounds like a neat challenge. I've been trying to play the entire GC at Rommel level and it seems that if one were to choose certain units throughout the campaign, you could maximize the use of the limited prestige by eliminating certain units and...

Re: limited prestige and high cost units

Thanks for the update as once again it was a good read.

Any chance that he drops a note on this site when he releases a new set of stats? I'm hoping the little rascal speeds up his research as I'm almost in the 45 East campaign and I'm rather curious as to what his findings will show.

Thanks again!

limited prestige and high cost units

When playing the grand campaign with limited prestige such as "Rommel", do you find that when you build your core over the years it costs less in the long run buy purchasing one type of unit over another? For instance I'm working through 44 East and I have a mix of Tiger 1 and Panther A's but in gen...

Re: Monstrous McAuliffe at Bastogne

I've had good luck in that scenario by attacking from the NW of Bastogne and he always appeared just as I cracked the second line of units beyond the airfield in that area. Knowing that he would appear, I back my units with SP artillery and hope he pounced on a Tiger or an Elephant as they took less...
