It’s been a long time since old friend Scotty and I have played a Napoleonic game , so it’s been good to get one under the belt. Scotty has used his lockdown time to complete a whole load of basing for his 15mm acquisitions over the last few years. He has also been making terrain bits. We played In The Grand Manner as it’s a system we have played a lot over our years attending the Wargames Holiday Centre and we pretty much know it backwards . I know they are not everyone’s cup of tea , however if you like chucking a bucket of dice they can work well.
We used French and Austrians this time. We also have Russians & British as well already painted that need a flesh out .
This will also mean a return to Napoleonics for me in 15mm - initially looking at Confederation of the Rhine or Duchy of Warsaw for my first top up. So I need to do some figure research- I suspect Blue Moon for now .
Anyway on with some pictures -in no particular order as I only remembered to take them occasionally.
Very cool Dave nothing like a large Napoleonic army to stir the blood, although Grand Manner rules might not be for everyone they do give a good games. Cheers GregReplyDelete

Having played it a few times, mainly at the WHC ITGM is really not my cup of tea.
Always wonderful to see your Napoleonics on the tabletop. Sounds like a grand day out.ReplyDelete
