After looking at the Siborne model pictures I have finished with my approximate overlay for the Black Powder scenario I am working on. Placement of units are relative to the layout of the map. There were a couple of spots that it was hard to tell if there were different levels of vegetation or not from the Siborne model photos – so this is my current attempt at translating his model to the tabletop. I plan to start shaving the teddy bear fur terrain this weekend!

Looks great!
Pity I'm not tall enough to reach into the middle of a 6ft wide table!

That's a disturbing thin looking, um, green, red and blue line…

It looks really great…
I did the same scenario for Napoleon at War so I have a good idea of the effort that you have to put into that.
Also I love some of the ideas you have, particularly on the battlefield..

I'll be looking forward to seeing the AAR…

good luck,

Thanks mate thats very interesting – duly copied and filed away for further reflection…

I would be very interested to see your troop stats and attirubutes and any special rules or tweaks you have come up with…..

I am still working on the OOB stats but since I intend to run this at a convention I am going to try and keep things as simple as possible. I just recently picked up the latest Black Powder supplement and although I like the different abilities reflected amongst the British and French I wonder how overwhelmed folks who have never played the game will be with all the national caveat rules.

A few years back I exhausted myself running a large scale Warhammer Historical Medieval English vs Scots game. As popular as the game was at the time I didn't get one player that knew the warhammer historic system. Since then I have been cautious with rules at conventions – mostly do skirmish.

As this game is intended to be part of a series that leads up to a full scale Waterloo refight I think the Black Powder rules offer the best chance of getting a reasonable game off the ground.

That sounds very reasonable.. I think it is important for the convention players to quickly be able to grasp the fundamentals of the game so that they can enjoy it…

Eager to see how it turns out
