With this supplement, you as the player, can design any French divisions from the Grande Armee between 1808-1815 including Line, Reserve, Marie Louise, Swiss, Marine, Grenadier as well as all the Guard formations, Light, Dragoon and Cuirassier cavalry divisions.
Clearly laid out and thoroughly historically researched, this 68 page full colour book with pictures of each starting divisional organisation is invaluable to any Grand Battles player thinking of building the French.
The book also has options for building a Royalist army of the Vendee region between 1793-1815.
Fighting 15s now has in stock the fabulous Napoleonic pin-up girls playing cards illustrated by Polish artist Bartek Drejewicz.
Published by Polish lingerie store Intimo, this deck of playing cards features pin-up girls in Napoleonic uniforms. The deck is definitely themed as traditional pin-ups, not “glamour”, with bare midriffs and plunging necklines the limit of any risque exposure.
Each suite is themed as follows: Clubs - Austrians and Prussians; Diamonds - French; Hearts - Polish and Confederation of the Rhine; Spades - British, Russians and Spanish. All cards in the decks are illustrated in full colour, and the illustrations on the standard 52 cards are unique. Four identically illustrated jokers are also included. Illustrations are identical in the blue and red decks; the only difference is the colour of the backs of the cards.
The cards use continental notation for the court cards - K for king, D for queen (dame) and J for jack – which should cause minimal confusion if the decks are used, for example, to drive a game’s card-driven initiative system.
Decks are priced at £9.50 each including VAT, or £18.00 including VAT for a pair of different-backed decks.
Released to commemorate not just the Battle of Waterloo, but the entire 100 Days Campaign in its Bicentennial Year. Extensively researched to produce the most up to date thinking on how the buildings may have looked on the day of the battles. Buildings such as Hougoumont look very different from previous models, but our model ties in directly with the model on show in the Waterloo Visitors Centre and is deemed by experts to be an accurate rendition of the Chateau on the day of the battle.
The range has been specially designed on a shrunken footprint system which has reduced the size of the Farm and Chateau complexes down to accommodate a more realistic area of ground covered when using figures at a one figure to several men ratio while still maintaining the character and look of the actual buildings.
