Napoleonics

Eagles at Quatre Bras - These are my (beta) rules for getting a napoleonic game onto a hex grid that will give a good game on a 4' x 3' table. Scales are somewhat flexible to allow users to squeeze in some bigger battlefields or go the other way and have a more tactical game with units representing regiments. 


As it stands, the units represent brigades and artillery batteries. A 4' X 3' table will comfortably give a Quatre Bras sized game with four or so divisions per side plus support. The rules are presently in a beta testing format, but the main principles of play seem pretty solid and so the rules may get tweaked rather than go off in a new direction.

Waterloo - Fading Glory.

During the 200th Waterloo anniversary,  I played out the three days of fighting using the Fading Glory boardgame by GMT. 


A rolling blog post started on 15th June to show the preliminary moves and general situation and then as each of the next three days were played on their anniversay date, the blog was updated to show the significant events of that day. 


The progress of those 4 days have been formatted onto a single account available the link below. Note, it was written as the action unfolded, nothing is commented upon retrospectively.
