I recently bought BLB and Twilight of the Sun King.  I have Condray and several other Marlburian rules sets.  I am open to trying any of them out. 

I'm painting late 17th century now in 15mm.  Hope to eventually do Great Northern War.

Club Project - Leipzig #Club_Project #poll

Bob
 
Edited

Some members of the club will be running The Battle of Leipzig in October.
This is a very large battle with lots of troops.
Napoleonic Rules that are tactical in nature will require too many troops and are generally more complex and slower.

Two rule sets have been identified as potentially having the correct scale emphasis for this battle.
The club will be testing these two sets over the next couple months so members can try them out.

After you play them, please vote in this poll.
Which rule set would you prefer to use for our Leipzig "Monster Game" in October ?

I took a look at both March Attack and Snappy Nappy over at Bob's.  IMO, it looks lke Snappy Nappy could be used for Leipzig right out of the box.  I would vote to test that out first.  They are pretty straightforward and can be played off the QRS.  It seems units only take morale hits so only one marker is needed and no rosters.

Overall, on first glance, I prefer MA. But that may Just be because of the pretty pictures. Either one will do the trick. MA will also have the advantage in that we have a PDF version of the rules in the files so it’s free if you don’t want to buy new rules.

I’ll be interested to hear from others.

I have played March attack previously, we would just have to come up to a decision on how to change the ground scale and do something with all the divisional commanders in the game.

I'd be up to try March Attack since we can get the pdf and all be somewhat familiar with it when we start testing.

My copies of Snappy Nappy and March Attack have arrived.

Initial impressions:

Both use the same basing. Two stands per cav or inf unit. Artillery uses one stand except in March Attack where large batteries can use two stands. 

Both seem scaleable up to what we need without too much trouble.

March Attack is more professionally done and the graphics are better. But both are good enough to give you the information you need to play. 

SN came with one QRS but it is mis-cut and parts of it are chopped off. Luckily we have the PDF version already. There is a slightly different one in the rule book  

SN came with a CD of synthesized period (supposedly) music. It sounds almost like accordion music to me.  I didn’t care for it. It’s now in the “Trash to Treasure” box. 

MA did not come with a separate QRS. The QRS is in the rule book. Again, luckily we already have the PDF version.

I’m not sold on BC. 
I’ll play it but the activation system bugs me.

Looks great! What are your thoughts on the rules so far? I've been considering them for my 6mm WWII guys. (I use Fistful of Tows 3 right now).

Attached is a photo of PZIIIs overrunning the American forward positions.  In the photo you can see destroyed M3 Lee tanks, and a few US half tracks that were not able to pull back fast enough.  It was a brutal game for the Americans.

Looks interesting, but one shot appeared to show maybe 20 blips following the convoy......

Get it was 1 U Boat and a bevy of humpback whales looking for action????

Here' a link to the movie, "Greyhound," where Hanks commands a destroyer protecting a convoy heading to the UK.
