Hiller pulls off a draw in what would have, could have, should have been a French victory, in this fictional 1809 engagement played with our friends at No Dice No Glory!

You can get the full after action report in our Gallery of pickup games.

The game played out in about two and a half hours. Checkout all the details in our Gallery.

I misread that as Hitler vs Bernadotte, I'm no Bernadotte fan, but thought it a bit over the top to compare him to Hitler.

I'm glad it was a good looking game instead.

very nice terrain, Bernadotte commanded the Saxons in 1809

And Bernadotte failed as a commander in 1809 and was relieved and sent home by Napoleon.

Awesome looking game, looked like loads of fun!
Thanks for posting.

Also, I received my fur mat, it's fantastic (I've been using it in the "KG Klink" WWII battle reports I've posted lately)!

V/R,
Jack

Gunfreak,
you are not alone

Gunfreak Thanks, glad you like the look of the game.

von Winterfeldt & Brechtel198 Well, hence this being a fictional scenario, Radetzky also wasn't a subordinate of Hiller in 1809, neither was Ulm, and while Vincent was, the 3rd Hussars wasn't assigned to him, but in any case, it was a fun game!

Just Jack Glad to hear it about the game mat! And happy that you like the look of the game!

Where can I find these game mats, and is there a little variety in the type?

von Schwartz,

We offer them, so you can purchase them from us if you like. We currently offer two varieties. The Classic Grassland Mat is the one you see in these photos, its color varies based on light and direction of viewing as it is triple dyed three different shades. The other is the Static Grass Mat which is currently available for pre-order and expected to ship this fall.

Have to say I do like the look of your new static grass mat. Rather odd size though. How does one store the mats?

Marc33594,

Thank you Marc. The size is very intentional, 4x6' and increments of of 4x6' are incredibly common table sizes, but if a mat is 4x6' then placing any hills underneath the terrain results in you having a mat that is too small for your table. By using 5x7' this is not an issue and provides more flexibility to players. It is very common for game mats to be sold in some deprivation of "4x6+" for this very reason.

The mats can be either rolled or folded, we ship them folded in reusable vacuum sealed bags which they can be packed back into fairly easily. That is what we do for transporting our demo/display units to shows and the like.

Very clever!
