Montenotte and Monte Negino April 1796 28mm French Revolution era scenario.

Next week I plan to feature my Battle of Montenotte April 1796 28mm scenario at the annual HMGS-PSW "October Surprise" historical miniatures convention.

Anybody interested in the scenario can review at: link
Includes an order of battle scaled for 85:1 ratio, the terrain and tabletop map scaled for 1" = 50 yds and assumes 20 minute turns. Scenario terms and our group rules can be seen on same blog site under this link: link

Since the rules and videos posted cover many..many aspects of our group games…here is a quick chart to describe what the unit values mean (.doc file): link

The Montenotte scenario includes a small mini "Monte Negino" scenario to add in the Austrian assault the previous day. Sort of give a full favor for this opening battle of General Bonaparte's early campaign career.

If in Los Angeles next weekend (20th), the HMGS-PSW October Surprise convention details can be found at:

After the convention, the AAR will be posted on blog and linked here at TMP.

Cheers from the warren,

Very well executed scenario design! What are you using to draw your scenario maps? Reminds me of "old school" hand drawn maps. Clean and easy on the eyes.

Hi JF,

As you said….old school hand drawn maps method. Tried the computer method…but never found a satisfactory computer program (somewhat cheap) to use on my iMac. Lots of mapmaking programs for PC….but not iMac it seems.

Battle scenario maps drawn from period maps, battle notes / historical references and reviewing the Google terrain maps for the ground heights. Simplified to our game system. The other constant is what terrain I have available… tends to influence my map making.

Thank you for the comment. Happy gaming
