Hi. I am running a campaign based on June 1815 and wondered if anyone would like to be part of it. I have the 3 main leaders but am needing people to play the role of corps commanders.

It is a simple campaign and wont need lots of time.. just regular input on decision making re troop actions and the sending of messages to army leaders etc. (in a similar style to my 1644 ECW of a few years ago) Battle plans will also need drawing up when encounters with the enemy happen.

The main attraction is the fog of war the campaign will provide. Maps are done, orders from wellington, blucher and napoleon are just about ready.. so chaps to implement the orders are needed. No cost involved just a willingness to write emails/orders on a regular basis.

contact me

and let me know if you have a preference for any of the sides involved.. British, Prussian or French

Sending an e-mail.

Quick question, I'm guessing we will be getting some type of feedback on how battles turn out, scout reports or such things??

Hi I have had about 20 replies and have emailed everyone. Many thanks as am very impressed.. all positions are now filled. And I have 2-3 leftovers on a waiting list also

The plan is that corps commanders issue orders to their divisions, receive reports, act accordingly and generally keep their c in c informed… the aim is to create a fog of war campaign ! time will tell how things go

This sounds fascinating. Please keep us updated on progress.

paul in rhb,

Do you have a webpage and some other way us bystanders can follow along? If not, I hope you post updates on here every once in awhile.

Thanky Sir.

Thanks for the comments chaps. I have emailed all the chaps who did not get a place but I now have one more spot open. It might not be a big spot but it will be interesting. Drop me an email please if you would like to be included.

Am not sure i will get round to doing a web page/blog but will see how things go. If not i will try do an update at a suitable juncture- with maybe an outline of whether the game is working or not. Cheers

paul in rhb27 Feb 2018 3:26 p.m. PST

slot filled in record time… thanks.. all positions are now filled. cheers

I'll be interested to see how this goes. I've long thought the best way to do solo games (if you favour an obscure era or ruleset for example) would be like this, i.e. get others to manoeuvre the forces, and you then just implement what they want to do.

The problem I always have with games all of them, not just solo is that there tends to be a side or unit that I favour, usually because it's the best painted. This distorts what that side then does because I either want them to win, or not get shot up, or whatever.

I've long wanted to do the thing where you don't actually fight the battles, but just sit in another room, issue broad directives, and wait for the results to be reported.

paul in rhb04 Mar 2018 8:15 a.m. PST

well… did you email me? its fascinating seeing 23 players sending orders in and being the only one with the other all picture..

paul in rhb05 Mar 2018 2:36 a.m. PST

hi again.. a position has opened up in the campaign if anyone is interested in joining in.. its early doors so its a good time to join

message me please at

paul in rhb09 Mar 2018 12:21 p.m. PST

all sorted for now thanks

paul in rhb14 May 2018 1:54 p.m. PST

well we have got to the end of the first day 15th june.. am not sure either side knows what's going exactly! Napoleon has some sort of plan and Wellington is still trying to work out what it is !! or knows what's happening and has positioned his troops accordingly. Will do a report at some point .

I am one of the players involved in this campaign and I can say I am enjoying it immensely. Thank you for organising the game, Paul!

leofwine 316 May 2018 1:43 a.m. PST

Me too, any clues what formation you are leading Kokolores?
Paul is doing a grand job!

Kokolores16 May 2018 4:24 a.m. PST

I am the commander of the French Imperial Guard. How about you?

paul in rhb16 May 2018 11:31 a.m. PST

Ha.. lets keep players anonymous if we can …. all will be revealed later am sure…cheers

Osterreicher16 May 2018 2:12 p.m. PST

Paul, was I supposed to keep it to myself that I'm commanding Guards Armoured?

4th Cuirassier17 May 2018 4:08 a.m. PST

Just don't tell anyone the French have a unit of Daleks.

paul in rhb17 May 2018 9:06 a.m. PST

its a free for all !!

CSherrange17 May 2018 10:23 a.m. PST

If a commander is suddenly "recalled or killed", I would happily accept a command if offered!!

paul in rhb17 May 2018 4:30 p.m. PST

thanks.will kep you in mind.. one nearly did get killed/captured and i would have felt bad for the player.. fortunately the dice rolled kind and the commander escape harm… he had blundered alone with a small escort into a town occupied by the enemy

paul in rhb14 Jun 2018 2:50 a.m. PST

one slot maybe available… cant totally promise yet but anyone interested please let me know asap.. we are just past dawn on 16 june and the action is hotting up… 23 players all committed really well ( except one who may have hot footed it away from the impending battle -hence the need fr a stand in)

leofwine 314 Jun 2018 4:57 a.m. PST

I bet its that bloody Milhaud. Him and his cavalry have not been where they are supposed to be the whole campaign so far. That's donkey wallopers for you, leave the grunts to do all the work!

4th Cuirassier14 Jun 2018 9:45 a.m. PST

Get involved, it's a blast. I normally only get this WTAF-is-happening? feeling at work.

paul in rhb14 Jun 2018 3:31 p.m. PST

he's resurfaced so no one else needed… things will start moving again soon..cheers p
