I know, heresy right? But as both a Napoleonics and a Fantasy gamer I had to try to place something in the overlap of that particular Venn Diagram:



For those curious for more I can direct you to two posts on my Blog:




I've plenty more ideas for this force, but this makes a full 24 point Dragon Rampant force for starters.

Hope you enjoy, and don't find too blasphemous!

Too blasphemous for my taste, even though I enjoy a good VSF game. Never been very sure why NAp Fantasy irritates me so, although it's not at Bloodbowl levels of irritation. I will be heading to the imagination game of ancients of Sea peoples vs French Ordinance across the hall but do let me know who won.

For inspiration, I recommend:
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norell (both a novel and a British television series; I've only seen the series, but it is quite exceptionally done!) Two rival English magicians work to aid the British war efforts against Napoleon.

His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik, first of the Tremeraire series. A British Naval officer is forced to abandon his commission when a powerful black dragon from China imprints on him when its egg hatches unexpectedly. Now part of the less-than-prestigious (dragon) Air Corps, the captain and his dragon Tremeraire never-the-less become an essential force in the ongoing war against Napoleon. Think Patrick O'Brian melded expertly with the Dragonriders of Pern.

Neither feature much in the way of fantastic elements beyond their respective premises; the one has magic spells, the other non-magical (yet still fantastic) intelligent dragons. But both could be inspiration to what can be reasonably and intelligently done regarding a believable black powder fantasy setting.

Alas, no warg-riding cavalry, but they're a start!

Now seeing like 400-600 of these coming at you would make you think twice on why you are still standing there.
