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...

Sealion 45

Final scenario for the 45 West DLC and suggestions would be welcome. Currently seized the southeastern corner of the island and the the eastern coast as well. The naval battle in the channel is going poorly and every 4 or 5 turns brings a fresh wave of allied aircraft. Surprised at the damage a P-47...

Re: Pz3's versus Pz4's thoughts

While it was probably debated in the past, I wonder if part of the problem with the 3's and 4's is because their stats are hard coded so that they can never progress beyond a certain point. Now one can make that point about all of the tanks/AT units in the game but "if" there are certain game mechan...

Prestige % question

When you move the cursor over the prestige window during game play you can see what percentage you are getting per turn. Does the % indicate how much you get per turn or how much you lose per turn? Also if you play with the soft cap is there a chance that as your units get damaged during the scenari...

Re: Sealion 41

You have to split your forces a bit. I usually send a small force to the northeastern corner by sea, land the main force in the center (a bit spread out) and optionally you can send Fallschirmjäger to an additional target. It is enough to block them from buying reinforcements. If you need more tips...

Looking for some tips on the original campaign for Sealion 41. Playing on FM and unfortunately most of my units have only 1 star of experience.

They've been great all through the campaign but as this scenario and the next are all urban combat, I'm thinking they'll defend bett...

Re: artillery upgrade, maybe

My first hero on one of my SU-122's Movement... Not really needed on an SU-122... Should I keep it as they are so handy in a pinch, or should I trade up for a 4th 30cm Nebelwerfer? I love my 30cm Nebelwerfers. All 3 have 2 heroes, and all 3 should be able to get a 3rd hero before this game is over....
