Re: 28mm Con Game

Thanks for the comment, Archduke. Unfortunately we didn't get many close-in shots to show the quality of our collective collections. Many gamers around this area (Great Vancouver) have the 12-figure battalions based on standards for other rule sets. I've long been interested in striving for the best...

28mm Con Game

For those discussing games in 28mm. I have posted a few pictures from our GdA games at Vancouver's Trumpeter Salute Convention.
Both games featured the same scenario with Russians and Prussians facing the French. Please follow the link.

Re: Columns

Well, attack columns move faster, they are easier to maneuver and in some cases there narrower frontage could allow more than 1 battalion to charge a weakened enemy. We often use columns when racing for objectives such as towns or if advancing with Elites or Veterans which can change formation on th...

Re: Using Cavalry

We had a similar situation in the club game we hosted at the Trumpeter Salute Con in Vancouver last Sunday. Allied (Prussian and Russian) cavalry swept around the flank of a German states brigade, with a reserve of elite French infantry rushing to shore up the left flank. Forming several squares the...

Re: Playing using 28mm

Our clubs use 12-figure battalions on 3 bases for a standard sized unit. This system was originally used for Shako 2 here but we find it works very well for GdA. I will try to link to some pictures.

Re: 2nd round melee aftermath

Supporting units in a melee generally suffer the same Morale consequences as the lead unit For the attacker, everyone Retires which essentially means everyone is treated as unformed. On the defender side, according to the Results Table, units would be unformed after the first round of Melee, so they...

Re: Battles of the 100 Days - Scenarios

Will this be released as a hard copy.... I don't own a printer....

Re: Battles of the 100 Days - Scenarios

Re: Playing using 28mm

Do you limit the number of artillery stands at all? - We choose to use 2 artillery stands to represent a standard battery - that way the width of a battery is comparable to an infantry battalion. - We also only have 2-3 batteries per side (although this depends on the scenario); otherwise we find mo...
