Re: 100 Days - Battle of Gilly

Our group has played Gilly as well. Great game incredibly tense! We’re now up to Plancenoit and so far every game has had a historic outcome, with the exception of the larger Mont St Jean scenario which the French won, albeit a very bloody affair. Dave, we’re nearly done with this one, where’s the n...

Re: Battle of Osma

Hi John, This scenario only has 10 turns so there is no time to hang around! We played the smaller version of Mont St Jean yesterday . We got 10 turns in on 3 hours and will finish off next week- the advantage of a mate with a wargames room- and by turn 3, using Forwards options and taking a few ris...

Hi PL,

Yes I believe that all units count towards demoralisation levels.

Re: Map for Mont St Jean scenario

We played this, after some discussion, as a lower and upper contour with the grand Battery only being able to reach the lower contour/slope. But, we also played anything beyond the road as being on the reverse slope for the allies to leave that little ‘surprise’ for the French coming over the crest....

After combat in BUA

Quick question for the experts.

After a single round of combat where the attacker is either defeated outright, or retires after a draw, are both sides unformed, including the defender? Or as the defender was already a formed garrison does he remain so?

Re: Cavalry Charging Attack Column

We played the Mont St Jean scenario over the last couple of Tuesdays. The battle culminated in the British guard cavalry been thrown at a fresh brigade of French Infantry, all in column except one square. Of the three charges one of the veteran units charged home and wiped out the opposing column in...

Re: Just a thought

Hi John,

Just a thought

Although our group love the rules and the ‘friction’ created by the ADC and Activation rolls I was just wondering what people views were on the following. In some of the other periods we play, where ‘friction’ is also key, the commander, whether he is a squad leader or Frederick the Great, can overr...
