I plan to print 3 scenario books, as follows, and want to know who is interested in buying copies. This would influence the size of any print run, be it 25-100 copies of each book.

Perfidious Albion 1806-1810 (40 scenarios)
Iberia, The French Ulcer 1808 (25 scenarios – summer)
Iberia Stands Alone 1808 (25 scenarios – autumn)

I would be interested, but only if as pdfs to avoid shipping to the UK and import duties which can be prohibitive.

I'll send you an email later

I'd get them as well. The idea of PDFs would be great to avoide international postage

I will not be producing and providing e-PDFs for sale. This will be a limited print run, paper form only.

I respect shipping costs is a deterrent, yet shipping costs and book price direct from me is cheaper than what Caliver charged U.K. residents for the first two 1809 books (per book average cost).

I understand there are no import duties on books, having shipped 4 books on the 1809 campaign to gamers in the U.K. None of them have incurred import duty costs.

Thank you for your interest! This is just an informal survey to guesstimate what to print so I have little/no left over stock.

Best regards to all whether you want to buy or not. Michael

Could be interested in "Perfidious Albion 1806-1810 (40 scenarios)"

Hi Mike:

Put me down for all three. I've enjoyed the four 1809 scenario books and look forward to these as I've been busy building an Anglo Portuguese army to take on my French.

You are correct. Books and printed matter do not attract customs or duty.

Hi Mike. Are they to be based on Shako II?

Michael Hopper14 Jun 2018 6:33 a.m. PST


I was playing Bruce Quarrie, CLS, Empire (multiple versions) etc. before the locals embraced Shako/Shako II. Since then I have experimented with Black Powder, Lasalle and Age of Eagles (Bill Gray's stuff is brilliant, Sam Mustafa's stuff is innovative as well, makes players think differently).

To answer your question – no the books are not based on Shako. I use generic nomenclature in the 4 1809 books that are in print, and all future efforts. I include in most books an explanation of map/time/turn scale and how to adapt such based on gamer individual preferences for rules. Do the books have a feel for Shako – some will say so but my focus is orders of battle, maps, key objectives, enough information for players to embrace (or reject) as framework for their own battles. Most of those who have bought inform me they do not play Shako and can write their own scenarios but the books save them large amounts of time.

I confess I have not bought or learned general d'armee rules and hear a lot of good stuff on such. I hope to play those as well.

Dave Jackson Supporting Member of TMP14 Jun 2018 6:47 a.m. PST

Thx Mike. I would be interested in all 3

Mike Petro14 Jun 2018 1:16 p.m. PST

Ill take all 3. Where to buy?

Peter Lowitt17 Jun 2018 5:44 p.m. PST

All three

Drink – you buy direct from Michael via his email.

Great service, great product. I have his last two 1809 books waiting for me at home, care of a birthday present. But sadly I can't open the. Until 28 July – a good six weeks after my birthday due to waiting form my son's exams to finish. But I have the first two, and so I know these will be worth the wait.

The Iberian triplets are next
