Here is a link to a solo re-fight of the 1807 Battle of Friedland between French and Russian forces.

Table setup at start of game with Russians to the right and French to the left.


Napoleon and the Guard arrive near the game end.

Quite a set up. What size table did you use?

wall6103 Jul 2020 5:31 a.m. PST

2100 x 1500 (7' x 5')

Thanks; looks bigger in the pics.

The figures are true 15mm (mainly Essex) so it probably makes the table look bigger.

Your rules on your blog are very intriguing I've always felt the commands and colors approach would work for a true miniature game.

Are the rules still being developed? There appears to be some rules topics that are still blank. If you are still updating them please keep us posted.

Very nice visual game with not much complexity in rules has been a wish of mine for many years. Good job.

The rules are basically complete. I just tinker with them after each game as I discover various anomalies and gaps. The missing sections are just explanatory notes.
I agree that the Command & Colors approach was the inspiration. The clincher, for me, was replacing the card system with the use of the battle dice as command dice.

That's a very nice looking game. A beautiful battlefield and nice AAR!
