Has anyone ever done them and, if so, how?
I generlly run my historic games on the understanding that they are occurring in a universe just next door. This excuses any small historical inaccuracies. In this sense, my Napoleonic set-up could be qualified as an “Imaginantion”.
But I’m interested in hearing if anyone has ever done a REAL imagination for the 1800-1815 period, along the lines of the fascinating SYW stuff we normally see.

I would like to, I’ve been collecting Trent Miniatures for the purpose.

We have done some local games that were imaginations but using Napoleonic troops. It was basically the same type what you would see in the SYW themed nations but simply using 1808 troops. It was a lot of fun – roleplay, intrigue and battles galore.
Sadly it ended as our friend (and main instigator) passed away suddenly.

There was a really good series in some of the earlier war-game magazines Military Modeling / Battle I think, about a French invasion of England 1804 -1810. Well worth a read to give you Napoleonic imaginations ideas.25/05/2015 at 20:04 #24940
I’m contemplating building the army of a hypothetical breakaway Ottoman Sultanate called the Auspicious League of Thrace-our-Mother, located primarily in the Balkans, Greece and Crete with Moldavia, Wallachia and Transylvania as full partners. In aj state of traditional but fundamentally narcoleptic war with Austria its crazy quilt army exists mostly to contest Napoleon in Southern Italy, Sicily and the Polish zone.

Wowzer I have Ottoman Turks for that period and earlier. I don’t have any enemy’s for them. I guess I could use them for The Sultanate of Ifat.25/05/2015 at 20:27 #24946
Kyote, what range are you using for the Ottomans?25/05/2015 at 20:49 #24947
Essex, Falcon(out of buissness) some Minifigs. others I don’t remember. I did them 20 years ago. for DBM DBN with some fan lists. If my camera likes my computer I’ll post some pics on my Facebook.26/05/2015 at 02:53 #24956

I just ran a fictional linked scenario campaign using my normal Napoleonic stuff, which seemed to work fine.

I am working on a solo project which has elements of Napoleonic imaginations to it, although the countries involved are based on real territories – more of a what-if really. Here’s a link to the thread in the Napoleonic forum where I discussed it.
I am in the process of setting up a blog at the moment.27/05/2015 at 00:57 #25060
Ian, checked out the thread. Building a French Restoration army never crossed my mind before but now….. I liked your idea of Napoleon relegated to king of a second class power; interesting to extrapolate its military and…incidentally…a great enemy for my Balkan sultanate.28/05/2015 at 11:09 #25128paintpigParticipant
Get yourself over to http://emperor-elector.blogspot.com.au/
Check out the blog roll, many have good ideas even the now defunct blogs are worth reading.
Also have a look at The Grand Duchy of Stollen, Stokes is a thoughtful gamer with many good ideas, in particular http://grandduchyofstollen.blogspot.com.au/p/guest-gallery.html
