I've got the complete and revised rules from Barry and they are fantastic.
Thanks for that.
Will translate them to german and start playing them.
They are ideal for pick up games on 6x4' tables.
And they are a great chance to bring new players to that era.
With the simple point and quality system, the focus on 5-10 units per side and even the artillery and cavalry included they are exactly what I had looked for at 28mm.
The game mechanics look simple but well thought and adequate and the activation idea is very tactical. With R2E in mind a lot of the rules look like a light version, which makes the MoE rules perfect for convention/demo games and as entry to R2E or napoleonic gaming in general.
My favorite is the characters section with those 12 characters you can buy for units, especially the priest for some irregular russian units. Do you place the characters directly into the units or beside? In the former version there were special places defined to them.
Horse artillery has no additional cost, is that intended (I guess so, because you have to pay activation from other units to handle them properly)?
Anyone else using this brilliant rules to play 28mm napoleonic games?
