Bit of a long title, but essentially on Sunday we had our first Wagram Mega game practice, starting with just the one table. The main aim was to gather some evidence of how well some of the new rules in the Clash of Eagles supplement would work for our big game – we want period flavour, but the last thing we want is to slow the game down!

Superb !

No charge on initiative

Some of the other rules look interesting and reflect changes I already use or have pondered. Will be interested to hear how others find them.

What a mass of figures; love that.
Thanks for the AAR.
I have the new book on order. I like most of the rules changes you mentioned.

Thanks guys! Yes I was hoping the Austrians could charge on initative, like the stroppy Russians, but it doesn't read that way. Overall I think these rules do reflect the reality of the K und K Armee – well trained, tough and good leadership at the Regimental level, but lacking in initiative and poor leadership and staffwork at the Brigade and Division level, let alone Korps!

Great looking game! Nice AAR.
Our group played Wagram twice, once in 28mm and again in 15mm. Both times the French destroyed the flanks of the Austrians and rolled up the centre. Especially using combined arms of heavy cavalry and infantry. Each dispatching line or square as they were presented.
