Why would they. What would be the point of wargame discussion of everyone agreeded? Seems silly to me to expect anything but division on everything from cuff colours to frontage of regiments. Bottom line is the Napoleonic period is one of the most written about eras out there and everyone thinks they have the inside track on facts and figures. I find the difference of opinion most entertaining.

POLL DESCRIPTION

GarnhamGhast wonders...

Is it possible to to have a discussion about Napoleonics on here without an argument breaking out? I mean, seriously. I refer you to this. It seems to me (as a horror/fantasy/SF/sometime Vietnam gamer) that Nappy gamers too often think of themselves as "Historians" and get highly upset at the idea of the games being fun or not perfectly accurate.Then there's the hissy fits, the resignation letters, the tears... Let's remember for a start no wargame can be a perfectly accurate representatiion of the battle. The billions of variables make it totally impossible. And we are supposed to be having fun after all.
