People laugh at our army
Although the decision to go for a massed army makes sense to many inside our country, uncouth foreigners are laughing at us, saying our army is nothing but an undisciplined mob.
Leaders harder to find
We have made the wise decision to favor quantity over quality. However, the new larger army has the unforeseen problem of finding it harder to spot officers of talent among the masses.
Some thought that our decision to favor quantity over quality was foolish, that it would lead to a decline in leadership, or even make our army a bit of a joke - but they were wrong. Our new larger army has unlocked the talents of our military minds, leading to ever better levels of organization.
More men for the Army
Our policy of favoring quantity over quality is paying off, as of today yet more men came available for the army.
Horse Population Boom
A horse is best bought as a cavalry mount at the age of 3 or 4. Fortunately for us over the last few years we have an above average amount of horses born. This increase in supply has made the recruitment of cavalrymen much cheaper.
Turning a man into a soldier is expensive and time consuming. One of the biggest costs is the necessary equipment that turns a defenseless man into a relentless killing machine. Fortunately we have found that we have a stockpile of such equipment sitting around. It is in poor condition and won't last long, but if we were to use it now we could get men into uniform much cheaper.
Well, not just iron, but the most expensive part of a cannon is the metal. A recent glut in the market has made metal prices cheap for the time being.
Growing trees for timber is a bit of unpredictable business, taking many years before a tree is ready for harvesting. The recent crop of timber has struggled to find a buyer and thus makes the business of ship building timber easier. The wood will not last forever and who knows what future supplies will be like.
Men flock to the colors
Men are flocking to the colors, begging for a chance to serve in our glorious armed forces. God is truly on the side of the big battalions!
Some sort of strange blight has been affecting our timber. The wood is covered with some sort of fungal growth that renders it useless for anything except burning. It makes sourcing timber for ship construction much harder.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to administer our armies. The men we have in the job are proving inept and far too venal. We search for men who are just corrupt enough to be bought, without being too greedy, until this is done our military administration will prove costly.
