finally got 1000 and there's some simple tips that would have helped along the way. Just my advice and little pointers along the way .. that may have been common sense, but I hadn't played a DW game until this one ..

1. STATION your men, that's the most fundamental part of the game. Use Station to load up your areas where you plan on attacking.

2. Leave Experience on .. helps with the limits of your characters, the max's carry over, you just loose your soldiers .. I used the same territory for the entire game, but think that hinders getting 250 officers.

3. instead of Consult (if there aren't any good ones) use the Assign feature, you can pick a speicific action. Helps with the officers and allows you to pick who to train or replenish soldiers.

4. GET means you've already GOTTEN the officer .. figured GET means GET him .. you want officers without GET

5. SAVE YOUR GAMES !!! it takes all of 2 seconds and by saving that's the only way your achievements will register .. my advice is to save one 'Invade' before you take the entire empire .. this is where you can ally the remaining and unlock officers

6. Don't rush straight for the enemy main base. You NEED to establish a supply line.
