A few gaming buddies and I are planning on jumping into the Napoleonic period of gaming, but although we have all been gaming for decades, only one of us has any experience of this period, and that was from over 20 years ago!
I'm desperate for advice on which rule set to start off with, and yes, I do realise I'm asking folk who all play General de Brigade, I suppose I really should ask - "Will this rule set suit us?"
After a little research into a few rule systems it's obvious that different rule sets are aimed at different scale battles, whether that's Brigade/Divisional/Army level etc. My friend who played years ago, played Napoleons Battles from Avalon Hill, and as he remembers it, each block (for want of a better word) of figures represented a Battalion, and all functions of that Battalion ( skirmishes, grenadiers and line ) were taken into consideration as one overall stat line. We would prefer to play at a less epic level, being more in control of individual companies. We are looking at using 15mm figures.
Will General de Brigade fit in with our ideas? All advice welcome, as I said earlier we are total novices to this period.
Thanks in advance.
