Well I guess I might kick things off with a link to my most recent Naps game. This game was actually very atypical for me, in that it was in 15/18mil, was not a ‘Black Powder’ game, and was set in Egypt. But it was a corker, and, if I may say so myself since few of the figures were mine, a sight for sore eyes!02/08/2014 at 22:09 #2846BanditParticipant
Hey Sparker – Nice to see a familiar face, maybe meeting at a new place (here) can be a new start for you and I as well :-p
The game looks nice, doesn’t look like your regular venue either. I’ve never played Napoleon at War, are the units considered regiments / battalions / ??? Are these rules you’re familiar with or first time using?03/08/2014 at 00:03 #2877
Thanks Bandit, yes I intend to be on my very best behaviour here!
I play regularly at two venues, my local FLGS at weekends, so large all day or all weekend games, and at the Uni where I work on Thursday evenings. So the FLGS games tend to be larger and more photogenic, so get blogged more!
No I’ve never played NAW until this either. Its an enthusiasm of the GO – Dave Brown, and he effectively made up cheat sheets for us. The units are considered Battalions. With my limited experience of these rules, I would assess that they are written at a very holistic level, despite the unit scale, which has been described as the ‘Flames of War’ of Napoleonics. Whilst the rulebook and army lists are certainly as well laid out as Battlefront books, otherwise this may be an unfair criticism! And if it attracts the younger ex Warhammer set into Naps, who’s to object!05/08/2014 at 06:38 #3326duc de limbourgParticipant
Great looking battle with an unusal theme. Do you know which figures? Think I recognise Minifigs and AB?
One day my FR army will be expanded to this time frame but I have to go painting them!05/08/2014 at 08:26 #3336
Thanks Your Grace! My figures – the Brits, are either AB or the Eureka own brand Nap figures. Most of David’s French and local troops were I think AB, but also a mix of all sorts! Plus he does a lot of conversion work (which in this scale seems crazy to me but he does a good job!)06/08/2014 at 14:56 #3543duc de limbourgParticipant
Thanks and indeed he did a great job06/08/2014 at 20:17 #3595GreystreakParticipant
Interesting ‘twist’ to the scenario, Sparker–bravo!
