So what need adapted: - lesser light/horse artillery, but replaced by battalion guns; all battalions (be it French or coalition) had them - no combined (grand) artillery batteries - less light infantry, esp. coalition troops had less but also restricted to their task so no screening line troops for...

This is going well :D Either that or I just bored everyone into silence!


Judging by the overwhelming forum response Barry - perhaps it’s time you changed the working title to ‘Consulate to Empire’ :wink:

I’m not claiming to be an expert on the period (or a clever writer of rules), but in response to Barry’s questions perhaps I can kick some discussion off here regarding the ‘Republic’ period of RtoE? Modelling the character of the Old Régime armies like the Austrians and the Prussians for the period...

Great to hear things are progressing well Barry. Really enjoyed looking at the pictures and reading the report, and I'm starting to get quite excited about these rules now. I would just concur with the previous poster who asked you if you'd got the "Republic" bit of the rules sorted out as well :win...

Great news to hear you're moving forward with this. Good luck guys! I don't mind modest handfuls of dice (6 - 8 - 10?) when deciding combats and the like, but it does get a bit tedious when you find yourself picking all the fives and sixes out of 20 - 30 dice. So no "bucket fulls" for me please. I'm...

Thanks for your help and suggestions B and C. After much musing I’ve decided to organise my Revolutionary period French infantry battalions on six bases of four figures each, with an extra seventh base of four grenadiers – but these were usually detached off in their own composite battalions. (And I...

And thank you for the most helpful response good sir! That’s excellent. I too am a bit ‘wargames table challenged’ (although mine will stretch to 7 x 5 feet) and like you I thought 24 figure units would be a good base line to work with considering the available room for manoeuvrer. Your last paragra...

So gentlemen – on a related topic, how would you recommend I base figures so that ‘elite’ companies can be shown attached / detached? Specifically – I want to depict my pre-1802 French battalions for RtoE so that I can show them with grenadier companies sometimes attached to their fusiliers or somet...
