Please see link for an AAR of a battle set in 1809, with 6mm Austrians facing French in a Polemos General de Division game.

Very interesting, and a rough time for the French, right from the get-go. Please forgive my ignorance, but was is the difference between Ruse de Guerre and General de Division?

You've got me *this* close to ordering some Baccus Napoleonics; my willpower is getting weaker and weaker…

V/R,

what is the difference between Ruse de Guerre and General de Division?

The Polemos General de Division ruleset is one of the two sets contained within the Polemos Napoleonic set. It is aimed at a Corps or so per side. Each base represents a battalion, more or less.

Polemos Ruse de Guerre is designed for the wars in North America from 1756 to 1815, although they are adaptable to both Europe and a wider time period – I believe that the author (Glenn Pearce) uses them for ACW games. Glenn was a playtester and veteran player of the Polemos Napoleonics set so in some ways it is a development of them. It has a more variable scale than GdD, being aimed at games in which a base could represent a battalion, a half-battalion or a single company or cavalry troop.

Yes, nothing went quite right for them except the abysmal performance of the Austrian artillery!
