I would love to see chain of command in action.  I've not got any minis to contribute, but I'd love to participate.

Hello Sylvain,

Mike D here. Do you have 8 squads of American and German Inf WW 2, 16 in total? If I can find someone who is interested in learning the rules I think I have thought of a way to play an 8 player Chain of Command scenario that would force people to have to work together in pairs and would not require a lot of waiting around? Please let me know your thoughts.

Bob,

I agree but there are a lot of meeting engagements and run up to battles that can be fun. I'm thinking of the 1805 Russian retreat down the Danube after the Austrian fiasco at ULM and the 1809 engagements in Bavaria. Certainly could not do big battles likeAusterlitz, Eylau or Borodino--but I'm not sure that there is any scale (at least that I can see to paint) that would allow this.

General de Brigade is 1:20 (36-man Battalions) scale.  Empire is 1:60 (12-man Battalions).
Having never played it, I assume that each player could run about a Division.
Probably couldn't do more than a couple Corps per side on my table.

So we could push a lot of lead but we couldn't redo any full-scale battles.

There is not always a game on Friday night.   Also I skip some games (Command & Colors or more correctly "Cards & Chance" - which I can't stand!).  So in answer to your question I I do not go every Friday.

Chad and Sylvain played an ancients game last Friday with the group, and both posted later that they had a good time.   I would encourage you to come along at least once and see what it is like, particularly as you live so near.

As I posted before it is more informal, shorter, noisier and more prone to arguments than the Mesa group (often the latter because whoever is putting on the game has home rules they want to use and that can lead to confusion).   Also the ambiance is a game shop, not Bob's palatial set up!

You are Correct 
I think that general de brigade or black powder is good for a small section of a large battle or a small
Battle. A division a side (a brigade per player) being the scale. A corps at the most. Scenario could be Massena in Aspern or Davout in Austerlitz. Small battle could be Junot in Vimeiro. 
For large battles, age of empires seem like the choice 
The same would apply to Civil war. Black powder or Pickets charge is good for small battle or section. Large battle would be fire and fury. 
I will check my rules collection but I might have General de Brigade. I have the civil war and awi version of it (Guns at Gettysburg and British grenadier) and all the scenario books

I agree but there are a lot of meeting engagements and run up to battles that can be fun. I'm thinking of the 1805 Russian retreat down the Danube after the Austrian fiasco at ULM and the 1809 engagements in Bavaria. Certainly could not do big battles likeAusterlitz, Eylau or Borodino--but I'm not sure that there is any scale (at least that I can see to paint) that would allow this.

General de Brigade is 1:20 (36-man Battalions) scale.  Empire is 1:60 (12-man Battalions).
Having never played it, I assume that each player could run about a Division.
Probably couldn't do more than a couple Corps per side on my table.

So we could push a lot of lead but we couldn't redo any full-scale battles.
