Our new Napoleonic Blog (Der Alte Fritz and Bill P.) CAMPAIGNS IN IBERIA presents:

Part 2 of our adaptation of The Coa Bridge Scenario in Napoleonic Iberia. See 25-28mm 1:10 units on gently rolling terrain and discover what happened to the lone British grenadier company guarding The Coa River Bridge in Part 1.

Also of interest are the natural delays built into observation, writing messages and sending couriers to change orders, move reserves and send information. Without same, we would have reacted instantly to enemy maneuvers and threats.

See the end of the story here:

1:10 is clearly the way to go!

Nicely done – I especially like the way you avoid the "200 foot tall general" stance

Great photos as well

Love written orders and couriers etc. Sadly not many do apparently.

Well done and splendid looking game.

Nicely done. I may have missed it, but what rules are you using?

Solid approach to handling the "god of war" effect.
I'm curious as to the "written orders" via courier rules. I assume that you had to note the specific orders given and sent, and that these were the orders implemented on arrival of the courier, correct?
