Hello,

Napoleon's Battles covers the French Revolution, but there are no Vendee lists in them.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any army lists or has played the Vendee using the rules, and what they might suggest for army stats.

Thank you.

Good point, I've pondered over the early rev lists for some time as our group has played a lot of Napoleon's Battles. Like many rules for Napoleonics, they are a little light on the rev era coverage.

Would NB, a brigade based system, be appropriate for actions in the Vendee?

I always thought of fighting in those areas as fighting pro royal forces in a counter-counter revolution campaign.

Thanks

Kléber en Vendée (1793-1794) / documents publiés, pour la Société d'histoire does contain a list for the Revolutionary army – see pages 460 to 465. The book is on Gallica at: link
It can be downloaded by clicking the downward arrow (telechargement/impression), tick the box next to "En cochant cette casse, ….." and then press "Telecharger"

Louie,

There are some fairly large battles that were fought during the conflict.

The Battles of Saumur, Coron, Vihiers, Nantes, Cholet and La Tremblaye are around 12-25,000 per side, with Tiffauges (one of the largest) having 40,000 combatants on each side.
