Round 6 Tactics
« Reply #25 on: August 29, 2005, 11:54:36 AM »
Looking at rorrak's latest standings of a few hours ago, and the battle reports forum - it seems that Talabecland and Stirland are having quite a scrap at Udo's.
Significantly though Helblaster has not posted his massacres - probably will not leave it till the Last Moment this time...... :wink:
where he goes will be quite interesting - as long as it's not Kaltenbach.

Fort Grigory is close, and we need to keep that in our hands.
Bechafen we have moved ahead of Talabecland, and within a couple of thousand points of Stirland.

I still favour  a late attack at the Watchman - as Rorrak says if Stirland lose at Udo's, and we make TUW contested - they are in trouble again.
Plus we get a round to fortify Fort Grigory and attack Bechafen - we can almost let the Watchman go as they will be running out of rounds.

We need to have 6000points plus ready to attack the Watchman on Tuesday am. GMT.

Lets use the Round 6 Standings thread to put available points in.
Brunger has some, I have some, what else is around??

We also need to keep odd small stuff going into Fort Grigory and Bechafen.
I hope it looks to the opposition that we are making OUR move at Bechafen as the campaign goes into its final few rounds.

I can add nothing more, I have only a game on Tuesday night and possibly some skirmish games. Even so I cant post them until wednesday morning. This round is too short!

I am going to post my two draws to Bechafen. I looked at the recent battles and it seems the talabanders are splitting pretty even between Udos fall and Bechafen. I expect them to push at bechafen at the end.  That is just my opinion but are we ready if they do?

Ok - what do we have left to post?

rha - you still have 2 solids?

I have a 1400, and a 1050, which I was saving for the Watchman, but I am worried we do not have the other 3-4000 we need to take it.

I have a minor as well, but I was going to bluff that elsewhere.

I still have two solids to post where you see fit. I do have a narrow window to put them in. I have break, in anothe hour and a half, that is when they need to go in. You just say where.

If your estimate of when Calvin will do round close is correct it will be after my game tonight and I may have another to post this round.

However that would be stealing a report from the next round. I had an exceptional rate of games this last round but thats not my norm.

It might be worth it though if we can contest at TUW. Based on my opp for tonight the chances for a result are better than average but never garanteed.

Ok post them to the Watchman.

Helblaster has posted all his at Udo's - so Stirland are in real trouble there.

If we can just sneak the Watchman it could be major advantage.

I've updated the standings with the perfect Hellblaster barrage and now I'm off for the evening.

Udo's is sealed I think.

Ok Talabecland have made their move - all at Udo's and they are now 16000 points in front of Stirland there.

Everything we have now should go to the Watchman

Right Brunger and I have thrown our last reports at the Watchman - hopefully that should put us about 1150 points ahead as of my last report.

Anyone logging in now can see if there has been any Stirland activity afterwards.

If anyone has any more points to post up - continue to post to the Watchman.
Calvin may close the round now or in 5 hours or so - we do not know.

I posted my Tuesday game at TUW, it now seems in excess but I suppose it could have been too little to late also.

It does mean that I only have 1 scheduled game for this round.

However locking Stirland out of Bechafen is pretty valuable in itself.

We posted a record 33 games this round but they are of mixed quality (as one would expect). Other factions have fewer games but have a much higher average quality. We posted 8 games fewer than T-Land but fewer points in total.

[edit] Apparently I cant add.

It  looks like General Helstrom posted the results of round 6 in the "the War of The Ostermark succesion" forum.  and it's looks very good for us  :-D ...

Ft. Grigory:
Stirland gained 3,900 points: CR is 10,400
Middenland/Kislev gained 5,050 points: CR is 13,650
