I'm having a practice run through of the Quatre Bras scenario I have been working on. To simulate the uncertainty of the arrival of reinforcements for both sides, I have made up an Excel spreadsheet with units and times and a D6 roll needing to activate them onto the battle field. You need to roll equal or higher to bring them on. Units could arrive earlier or later than the historical time depending on this roll. Some units may not arrive (like d'Erlon's Infantry Divisions).

You can find the file here to download with some more thoughts on it in the blog entry – link

Interested in any feedback to improve it or other systems that people use. I'm planning to play it solo over the next few weeks to see how it goes.

Look forward to hearing how it goes Ironlegs. Like the blog and figures BTW.

Quatre Bras has always been my favorite Anglo-French battle. I have not played it in years. I have all the units that were there, but my Anglo-Allies need to be rebased to my current system.

I will definitely use your reinforcement table when I next play that game.

Thank you so much for making it available.

Just updated the file, a bit easier to read, shaded alternate rows. Nicer formatting. Same link

I've added a OOB for Quatre Bras in 20:1 ratio, with unit ratings for "Republic to Empire"

Great stuff! It will be a while before I can game this battle- but I will have this stored and ready for use for when I do! Cheers
