    I’m sorry you didn’t like it.  Is there anything you think I could do to improve next time (either the game or the report)?

    Leaving aside all matters of a scatological nature, I’d just like to say that I enjoyed your AAR. I also liked the look of your “bases”, do they represent a brigade? I ask because I am not at all familiar with the Polemos rules.

    Thanks.  One base represents an average-sized brigade or Prussian regiment (occasionally a base will represent two brigades if those brigades were exceptionally small, half a brigade it those formations were unusually big).  The rules recommend that a brigade base is 60mm x 60mm, but I (and some other Polemos players) use a 60mm x 30mm base.  I find that the larger bases sometimes give too cramped a game, although individually they do look better.  My bases are roughly in line with those used in DBN/HFG, the larger ones are similar to those used in Volley and Bayonet and Grande Armee.

    That is quite amazing!!  It is Waterloo, in a way that none of  the other Waterloos I have seen can be.  It is the other end of 6mm from what I do (small actions with large units) but it is bloody amazing.  For the Great Battles – with large armies it is the way to go.

     

    Likewise for later 19th C battles when the armies got even bigger.

    Nice report and it really does give the feel of a large battle.
