GdB Scenario Books

Postby john de terre neuve » Thu Jun 01, 2017 11:49 am

Someone on TMP had asked whether you could use the GdB scenario books with GdA.

I had forgotten that I had the Wellington's Victories booklet.

I had a quick look through and it appears that these scenarios would be very easily adapted to GdA.

I believe that GdB has a 1:20 ratio. So it is pretty easy to multiple the number of figures in the scenario book by 20 to get their size.

In GdA Small is <475, Standard is 475-750, Large >800. This may give some players pause as a 36 figure unit would be Standard and a 40 figure unit would be Large. I am good with it though.

The tricky bit will be the brigade structure, as in GdA the minimum number of units in a brigade is 2, many of the scenarios in the book have just 1 artillery or cavalry unit per side (although I see no clear restriction in the rule book for an infantry division having an attached artillery battery or cavalry regiment)

I believe there are also 5 grades of troops in GdB: Elite, Veteran, Line, 2nd Line, and Conscripts. There are only 4 in GdA: Elite, Veteran, Line, and Recruits. One would have to decide where to place 2nd line in GdA.

GdA also has Reservist, Enthusiastic Recruits, and Grenadier for additional morale gratings to help with converting scenarios.

Actually there are six basic grades in GDB :
Guard,Elite,Veteran,Line, 2ndLine and Conscript.

I believe that :
GdB GUARD = GdA ELITE
GdB ELITE = GdA VETERAN
GdB VETERAN = GdA GRENADIER (optional)
GdB LINE = GdA LINE
GdB Second LINE and Conscript = GdA RECRUIT
