15mm Prussians for sale or trade.  I will be in Phoenix on Friday playing a game at the game depot.  If anyone is interested in these figs, let me know and I will bring them to Phoenix. 
Please understand, these are a good painting grade, nothing special, but nothing to be embarrassed about.  There are, by my estimation, counting cav as a single fig, over 750 figs.  I am asking for either $200 for the whole bunch or would like to trade for a reasonable number of painted/unpainted 15mm dervish figs.
There are, and also understand, I am no Nappie expert, so you could come see for yourself:
100 Grenadiers
357 line troops
Various other line troops in uniforms I do not recognize
 Green jacket and grey pants - 27
Green jacket with white shako - 45
Green jacket with shako -12
French-looking figs in red and blue (but with prussian flag) - 132
30 plus Prussian skirmishers
About 60 guys in light blue uniforms
64 mounted Dragoon or Hussars
24 guys - lancers I believe - in dark pink with square hats
9 guns
6 limbers
3 officers
A handful of gunners
Frankly, I think there are more figs than the number given above, but it comes out to about 750, again, counting cav as a single fig.  If you are interested, let me know and I will bring the bunch.  Bring your own boxes as I want to keep the trays these guys are in.  email or call me at 520 370-4497

1809 Campaign

The Tin Dictator <TinDictator@...>
 

Rob and Michael...
You said you wanted to be in the campaign.
Please confirm since I haven't heard from you lately.
If you're in, you will be Austrian Korp commanders as all the French/Allies Corps are spoken for.
Let me know ASAP.
I'm almost ready to disburse the campaign stuff.
Bob


1809 - Danube Campaign Starting

The Tin Dictator <TinDictator@...>
 


Saturday's game went relatively smoothly. Those who played seemed to remember most of the rules. The new players seemed to pick them up pretty quickly.
 
We'll call it a minor French victory for those who are so competitively inclined. But it was really just a learning/refresher game to get everyone in the mood.

The Campaign Corps assignments were assigned.
 
I'm working out the paperwork now and will email your troop assignments and your starting locations within the week.    Then I'll call for orders and the game will be afoot!
 
I will start with a call for a week's move at a time. That will change when things get closer.
 
Those of you with no internet will, of course, not see this message. In those cases, I'l probably have to do your map moves over the phone.
 
I have a Large map for Napoleon (David) and a Large map for Charles (Larry) with the starting locations of all your troops.
 
I have small maps for the rest of you. But I'll email you all the map since the small ones I printed are so hard to read and some of you are having trouble accessing it on the Yahoo group. You'll be able to zoom in on whatever areas you like with the map on your computer.
 
Map movement:   Distance between towns = 1 day's infantry march,   1/2 day's cavalry march,   1/3 day's HQ march.
 
Scouting cavalry is advised.
Garrison's along the supply route is advised.
 
Couriers will take three "campaign" days to deliver their messages regardless of distance. Unless they are closer than three day's march. Messages should be sent to ME for distribution. Orders should be addressed to the General they are being sent to along with his approximate (last known) location. They will generally be safe, but if their routes take them through enemy territory they might be killed or captured. In that case, the message may fall into enemy hands. So be careful. 
 
I expect Napoleon and Charles to send orders to their subordinates. However, Unless they are present with the troops, I will not move the troops UNTIL I see orders issued by their respective commanders. 
 
For example..... If Napoleon tells Davout to move all his troops to Salzburg. I will wait until I get Davout's orders to his divisional commanders before any of his troops are moved. So, if Davout wants to alter the orders somewhat, (change route, NOT send everyone, etc.) he'll be able to. If nothing comes from Davout, his troops will sit tight until Napoleon screams at him.
 
If you are feeling sneaky and want to discuss plans with other generals you should only do it when you are located in the same place. Contact via email or phone with your other players will be considered cheating, so please don't do it.
 
I am hoping to be able to complete all map moves during the two weeks between game days. That way I'll be able to set up the battles and pull troops before game day. If multiple battles are needed, the map moves will be on temporary hold until the battles are done.
 
Casualties will be assessed as follows:
Table Top losses will start at 25% permanent. Tie battles will stay at 25% permanent.
If you WIN the battle your losses will be 20% of whatever you lost in the game.
If you LOSE the battle your losses will be 30% of whatever you lost in the game.
This only applies to killed troops. Captured troops will be 100% lost.
 
More to come ...

Those are the maps we are using for the campaign because they are easy to keep track of movement.

I expect that the majority of the campaign will happen on that map.

If the French get the upper hand and push the Austrians back, we might move onto the "Austria" map. But that shouldn't be for a while. Unless the Austrians really crap their pants early on.

 

I will have a full poster size map each for Napoleon and for Charles. I have also printed out a bunch of smaller 11" x 17" maps for the rest of the players to use when keeping track of your map moves. The smaller maps are harder to read but should be serviceable. And you can always refer back to the maps here in the yahoo group and zoom in to your area of interest.

 

Some basic info:

Starting troop positions will be assigned per historic location at the beginning. After that, you are free to change history.

 

Each player will be at least a Corps commander.

 

Each town is one day's march away from the next for infantry.

Cavalry can move two towns/day.

HQ's can move three towns/day.

 

The smallest detachment can be a Battalion or Squadron.

If you detach an element, it will NOT magically appear with its parent unit during a battle. So keep track of such things. As GM, I will try to keep track also.

 

Couriers and scouts will generally have a three-day lag time between when they leave a place to when they arrive at their destination regardless of the distance. Unless they are closer than three towns away. Then they'll be a bit quicker. 

 

Garrisons will be necessary to maintain LOC's.

There are special rules for fortified towns with garrisons.

 

Unless circumstances warrant otherwise, I will ask for a week's movement orders at a time.

This will hopefully keep units from turning on a dime to respond to things they really wouldn't know about until a courier arrives to tell them.

 

Marching to the sound of the guns:   Troops can hear guns one day's march away.

YOU CAN NOT MARCH TO THE SOUND OF THE GUNS UNLESS YOU HAVE STANDING ORDERS TO DO SO! or you get an order to do so. Simply saying that since there are more troops nearby they will also fight doesn't do it.

 

More on Saturday.

So far we have....
 
Campaign Master
Bob
 
French/Allies
David
Fred

Austrians
Larry
 
Unknown
Mark
Rob
Pete
Ed
Michael
Richard
 
If anyone else wants in just let me know.
 
There are about 6 French spots and about 7 Austrian spots.
More can be accomodated if needed.
Those of you marked as "unknown" should let me know your preference as soon as possible.
First come -First served. We'll try to have an even number on both sides.
 
If you REALLY want to be Napoleon himself, or Archduke Charles, you'll need to convince the other players on your team that you are the best one for the job.
 
Since I'll be aware of everyone's troop movements/orders, I can't be one of the commanders .
I intend to play in games as a subcommander for whichever side needs a player.
 
We're having a warm-up game Saturday.
A rules refresher and its also something to do while we assign teams and plan strategies.
Starting at noon.

1809 Danube Campaign

TinDictator@...
 

April 9, 1809

There are rumors coming through that the Austrians are beginning to mass along their border with Bavaria. The rumors appear to be coming from civilians who can't tell an Austrian from a Russian.

 

The Bavarians are getting a bit nervous but Marshal Berthier, who is in temporary command has assured everyone that the Austrians wouldn't dare come accross the border knowing that there are French troops in the area.

 

The Emperor Napoleon, who is in Paris, has been sent a dispatch advising him that all is currently quiet in this theatre.

 

It is advised that such rumors should be stopped and local commanders are authorized to make examples of any civilians who persist in this nonsense.

 


Re: Napoleonic Campaign ?

The Tin Dictator <TinDictator@...>
 

The maneuvering will be on maps and the battles will be fought on the table top...... if they're worth fighting.  One regiment vs a Corps won't be.
 
If there's a question, the commanders can decide if they want to fight or run away.
 
There are also rules for maintaining the line of communications/supply, detached garrisons, and scouting.
 
All will be explained.

the bob…

i have the rules finished…but there will probably be some tweaking after a full game. as to figures;

the Grand Alliance 136 btns 169 sq.

Armies of the sun king 114 brns 118 sq. as of this time. they will be brought up to par. but i have enough figures on both sides to re-create or imagine a major battle


Re: Napoleonic Campaign ?

The Tin Dictator <TinDictator@...>
 

I will play a War of Spanish Succession game.
Plug it into the schedule or tell me when you want to run it and I'll plug it in.
Do you have the rules fixed yet?
You are also the only one with figures for WSS I think.

The Yahoo Group Database is really sucking lately.

 

For the life of me I can not figure out how to get the damned thing to accept updates.

I have tried numerous times to update the games played this year (2013) and everything seems to work until I hit SAVE. Then it just dumps all the edits and goes back to the way it was.

 

Does anyone here know anything about how this newlw "upgraded" thing works?

Well, I can't say the response has been overwhelming.
So far Dave, Rob, and John are the only ones interested.
And John will be a part-timer.
 
So, counting me, that's 3.5 players.
Ideally, I'd like a few more.
The armies and the theatre of war are fairly large.
 
I'll run a warm-up game on November 2nd.
 
Austrians vs French
Battle of Schmelling Fahrte, Bavaria - 1809
 
Game will start at noon.
Watch for the calendar announcements.
Try to come if you can.
