'The Black Baron' (Michael Wittman - 13 June 1944) - The Greatest Day [MMP, 2015]

"One of my favorite systems but I've not yet dived deeply at all into this particular title and I really should.  Thanks for this demo of the first learning scenario!"

Series Comparison: La Bataille [Regs XXX and ML] versus BAR

"Yeah I'm currently up to the 4:40pm turn. I'm doing it all as one video this time. It's a great title in the series, lots of small company size forces, heat effects that disrupt forces as they move, and a lot of ground to move around…"

"Hope you'll post a video on your Monmouth game--will really look forward to that!  I've got it but never came around to playing it (I confess a preference for the European titles more than the American Revolution ones!)."

Series Comparison: La Bataille [Regs XXX and ML] versus BAR

"Another terrific video!  This does a great job in comparing (and especially contrasting) the two systems.  Really appreciate the discrimination between the Marie-Louise and Reglement XXX rulesets!  Marvelous!"

La Bataille d'Albuera

Despite the old counters, La Bataille d'Albuera has the potential to serve as a good introduction to the La Bataille series.

Here's the full video of my recent playthrough:



There are only a small number of specific rules, and they're easy to implement. It's also a relatively easy battle to manage, consisting of just the…

La Bataille de Mont Saint Jean [complete]

It took my about 4-weeks of regular play, dedicating roughly 1-2 hours each night [with a few missed nights], but I finally completed La Bataille de Mont Saint Jean [Battle of Waterloo], using the Marie Louise Rules, and the compiled reports, totalling just over three hours, are now up here:

La Bataille de Mont Saint Jean

Now it's time to get started at Clash of Arm's La Bataille de Mont Saint Jean which combines their La Bataille des Quatre Bras and La Bataille de Ligny. I need to spend some time figuring out…

Tactical/Regimental-level Napoleonic Wargames?

There seem to be quite a few difference tactical/regimental-level Napoleonic wargames. Does anyone have experience with a broad range of these, enough to recommend one (or a series) above others?

I don't have much of a…

The Casualties of Wargaming

Here is the situation at the end of the first turn of my game of the Battle of Eylau (The Coming Storm by OSG) - note the shot-glass chit holder over on the bottom-left:

The next image shows the first casualty of the battle - my beloved shot glass chit holder. A careless elbow saw this flying to a tiled-floor and shattering into a hundred pieces. The…
