I enjoyed the last one so I'll get this one too. I may even be tempted to order Hail Caesar at the same time too.

Now available to pre-order from our webstore, the latest Black Powder supplement, Albion Triumphant, Volume 2 – The Hundred Days Campaign, is a fabulous addition to the Black Powder rules system for Napoleonic gamers.

Albion 2

On a damp, overcast Sunday in June, 1815, 20 years of continuous warfare – the Napoleonic Wars – came to a violent and bloody conclusion on a rain-soaked field in Belgium. These wars were truly a world affair, with European powers fighting battles not only on the mainland of Europe, but as far as India, Egypt, the Caribbean, and America.

The greatest generals of the age finally faced each other on the field of battle: the Duke of Wellington, rooted to a little-known ridge, faced the Emperor of the French. Napoleon Bonaparte, master of the attack, opposed brigades of British, Germans, Dutch and Belgians; brigades of an infamous army that, despite horrific casualties, clung to the ridge for over nine hours to ensure that the arrival of Blücher's Prussian army would put the Duke's victory beyond doubt.

The Battle of Waterloo became a true landmark in military history, one that will never fade, and nothing on such a grand scale would be seen again.

This supplement for Black Powder overviews the main battles, armies, and personalities of the Hundred Days Campaign, and includes army lists, scenarios, and special rules to enable you to re-fight them using the Black Powder rules.

Featured conflicts include:

  • Quatre Bras and Ligny (16th June 1815)
  • Hougoumont (18th June 1815)
  • Waterloo (18th June 1815)

132 pages of Napoleonic army lists, background, troop stats, and scenarios make this an absolute must for lovers of Black Powder, of Napoleonic gaming, or simply of gloriously produced wargaming books!

You will need the Black Powder rulebook to use Albion Triumphant, Volume 2 – The Hundred Days Campaign.

Sharpe Shooter

As you've come to expect from Warlord Games book launches, we are giving away an exclusive miniature. Warlord sculptor Wojtek created the special-edition miniature that will be sent for free with any purchase of the new book directly from us at Warlord (via the webstore, over the phone, or in person at shows – you can even drop in to see us at Warlord HQ and pick yours up in person!)

Featuring the British rifleman depicted on the cover, this Sharpe Shooter will look great in any Napoleonic British army.

Released early- to mid-May 2013, pre-orders will be shipped just before Salute weekend (20th April), with the book being available on the day of the show from Warlord Games!

Please note: If you want to pick your copy up at Salute a good few weeks before general release, you can pre-order through our webstore, and during check-out, use 'Pick up order at Show' as the shipping method. If you need any help with this, please do not hesitate in contacting us.
