Following our long-running and highly enjoyable 1815 Campaign, the club is about to embark on a very different Napoleonic operation. Instead of a linear sequence of pre-determined scenarios, our newest campaign will be a more exciting, map-based, free movement system.
Using the new Blucher rules with 6mm miniatures, we will be covering twelve days of critical action along the Danube, where Napoleon and Archduke Charles fought a series of major battles in April 1809. Our own version of this campaign is based largely on the research, maps, and OOBs presented in John Gill's fantastic study, Thunder on the Danube.
When it is time to resolve a tabletop battle, attendance by high command players is not required. Whomever shows up that Monday night can take a role in the battle. Those unable to attend will have to read the after-action reports (and inevitable recriminations) after the fact! We won't be playing these battles every Monday night, so this campaign could take several months to unfold. A twelve-turn limit should help keep it from dragging on indefinitely.
