does he have the right hat on?

Can we just buy the figure?

Of course, it was only the British who fought and defeated Napoleon in Iberia… pesky propaganda mentioning Portuguese, Spaniards, Hannoverians and such…

Pro-british bias is really strong in Warlord Games, so this one comes as no surprise to me. I mean – Napoleonic wars were all about Spanish Peninsula afterall, right?

Black Powder is known for its whimsical and tongue-in-cheek "Haw! Haw! 'pon my whiskers, tally ho and all that" old-fashioned British gentlemen's club writing style.

This supplement's title Albion Triumphant fits that style perfectly.

@ Gamespoet – no, the model is only available with the book.

@ Manchurian – Portugese,m Spanish, Hannoverians, etc are all included in the book in some detail.

@ Matheo – Albion Triumphant was originally a book that also covered the 100 Days Campaign but would have been far too big so it was split down to two books. THe Waterloo supplement will be along early next year and work is already well underway on Napoleonic supplements for Russian, Austrian, etc forces as well as other conflicts during the Black Powder period.

Pro-British? Too bloody right, old boy!

Foot Guards, Old Boy, Foot Guards!
As long as its worn with a certain panache and is tailored in Jermyn street, it'll do, dontcha know!

Paul, I love the rules and all, but the fact remains. Just browsing through Pike&Shotte made mi grin, it's so Britan-focused.
Nothing wrong with that, mind you. Failure to pay attention to some rather significant conflicts in both Black Powder and Pike & Shotte books will be apparent only to people interested in those conflicts :) Thankfully the rules allow for creating almost every single army from respective periods.
This bias thing might've been irritating were the books written differently. However, as Arteis points out, it's the whole "grab a drink and play the game, not forgetting to put your tongue in cheek" attitude that makes them fun to read. And the rules, as mentioned, are really good – in fact, my rules of choice for both Napoleonics and Italian Wars. My initial comment might've come across as a little harsh, but really it was just stating the fact, which you actually confirmed ;)
Keep up the good work, and maybe don't forget to include Polish troops in upcoming Napoleonic supplement ;)

Actually Polish troops played a distinguished role in the Peninsular so you may find them in AT…

TBH I'm more interested in 1809 campaign vs. Austria and then 1812-1814 ;)

GunRunner03 Dec 2012 11:05 a.m. PST

And that is relevant to this thread, er why? Perhaps you're going to write the supplement you prefer to game…

Matheo03 Dec 2012 11:37 a.m. PST

I don't need to – all I need is within Black Powder book.
If you read the whole conversation here, you'll know what it's all about.
Or maybe not.
