If you bought a copy of our monster game "Napoleon and his Marshals" before Dec 12, 2017 chances are that you have four misprinted counters (see pic, which shows front and back of the replacements). We'd like to fix that at no cost to you.
Send me an email with your name and address and I'll pop them in the post. (If you bought our game in a store, the store will have the replacement counters in a week or so.)
The printer has shipped, and the games are due to arrive on December 11.
This means the following will be in stock:
1. Unconquered Lands -- the new expansion for Napoleon and his Marshals
2. The Ottoman Empire -- the new expansion for Napoleon and his Marshals
3. Napoleon and his Marshals is back in stock, too.
Two more expansions for Napoleon and his Marshals are off to the printers!
Unconquered Lands provides 3 maps (no counters) needed to complete the set for the Grand Campaign Game and several scenarios including the Patriotic War. Included are two large maps of Russia and Scandinavia and a small map of southern Italy and the Central Mediterranean.
The Ottoman Empire provides 1 map and one counter sheet. The map completes the European maps in the Balkans and eastern half of modern Turkey. The counters give the Ottoman Empire and navy, the third minor power. Also on the counter sheet are some client state leaders, navies and admirals for the Prussians and Austrians (for the campaign game) and counters needed for the 1806-1812 Russo-Turkish war scenario.
Both of these games are expansions. Napoleon and his Marshals is needed to play. All maps are the same scale and fit together with the others. We anticpate arrival before Thanksgiving (late November).
The first expansion to Napoleon and his Marshals expands the series to include the wars in Spain and Portugal from 1805-1815, with scenarios for 1807-1814, 1809-1814 and as part of larger campaign scenarios. The basic set (Napoleon and his Marshals) is required to play. The complete British army and navy for the basic game is added, along with the Spanish army, navy, and leaders and the Portuguese army. Other navies, such as the Russian, are also included. A 20.75 x 16 inch map of Spain, Portugal, Southern France and the adjacent seas is included along with two 88-counter sheets of 0.6" square game counters, printed front and back. Scale is approximately 38 miles per hex.
Among the new leaders added are Wellesley/Wellington, Beresford, Hill, and other commanders. Wellesley can undisrupt British forces after combat which gives him a resiliency unmatched by his peers. Beresford can train the Portuguese, converting them from militia to fighting units. Of course Nelson is included with the navy, along with less famous but highly effective Admirals like Collingwood, Saumarez, Pellew, and others.
Like its parent game, this is a diceless combat system, based on our algorithm for battles in that period. The gameplay is identical to that of Napoleon and his Marshals, with some minor modifications for the scenarios. Units are similar scale - about 5,000 men per factor which was roughly a division. Ship factors are two ships-of-the-line for each naval factor.
Rules are the same as for Napoleon and his Marshals which you must have to play.
To order, click on the Place Order tab, then click the button for The Peninsular War. Please remember, this is an expansion. You must have the basic set of Napoleon and his Marshals to play!
