2.  Fight it as 4 separate battles (3 peripheral and 1 central as the French try to get out of town (Leipzig town, that is)), on 4 separate weekends.

After some discussion at today’s game (Thanks for running the game Ed) we have decided to put together a club project and run an anniversary game of the Battle of Leipzig (1813).
We already have all the OOB’s and maps. If you’re not familiar with the battle, its the largest battle of the Napoleonic Wars.

The anniversary of the battle falls on the October 17-18 weekend. But we could move it up a week and run it over the Columbus Day weekend if enough of you guys can keep away from all the Columbus Day car sales.

So…. Now we’re opening up the discussion to see what scale you guys would like to do it in.
The obvious choices are 15mm or 6mm. Unless you have a gymnasium and want to do it in 25/28mm.

Also, we’d like some opinions on the rules we should use. The size of the battle seems to call for a fairly low figure-per-unit count. And the units should probably represent something larger than a battalion or even a regiment. 
Once we pick a scale and a set of rules we’ll need to do an inventory of "who has what”.


Pros & Cons: (You guys should add to this list or maybe someone can put together a Poll)

6mm Pro - The game will fit on my table. Terrain would be approximately 6’x9’.
6mm Con - This scale isn’t too popular with many in the club and many will not be interested in starting another scale in the period.

15mm Pro - The game will fit in my garage. Terrain would be about 12’x18’.
15mm Pro - I believe this is the group’s most common Napoleonic scale so filling in the gaps will be quicker.
15mm Con - We’d have to build a terrain table. I love doing this, others don’t.

25/28mm Pro - Visually appealing.
25/28mm Con - Cost

Re: Club Project - Leipzig #Club_Project #poll

So I think you should think through what your want to fight.
The battles was to a degree a series of partially interconnected battles.
Are you going to try and do all three days?
If the object to fight the key areas? This may fit your table. Or is it to show everything? For example the town itself was largely irrelevant for fighting.
You also need to find a rule set that allows a resolution in the time you have. This as other have said leans toward Grande Armee or Blucher. Maybe Volley and Bayonet. Age of Eagles has up and down side. But as Sylvain just posted a bit massive. Those rules mostly operate with a bunch of figures on a base so you can just pre build the sabots and have people bring figures accordingly.
Related do you want the operational movements where players can shift troops to different areas or do you want more of the line, column and square effect?
Bataille Empire would be overwhelmed. FOGN2 might not but would require a lot of learning the rules.
You should also have a few mini-games with the rules before hand so people are familiar with the rules of the day.
I have a good number of Austrians and French in 15mm. Plus smaller amounted of Russians, Prussians and Wurttemberg.
In 25mm I have a bunch too.

A brigade game is Blucher.  I haven't played it, but it is designed for larger games.  You would likely have to figure out how to do the movement rolls in a different manner with mutliple players.  You could just build sabot bases to fit figures.  I think there may even be an OOB for Leipzig on his site.

Not really. 
Dennewitz, Mockern, Liebertwolkwitz, etc are in there as smaller (still big) scenarios. 

If you’ll remember our Waterloo or Austerlitz games with wall-to-wall troops you should then multiply the unit count by 4 to get an idea. Or, think about it being twice the size of our Borodino game. 

I also think that AoE may be too tactical for such a large battle to be completed in one weekend (2 days). 

I’m researching some “fast play” options.

I reckon the infantry and cavalry wouldn't be too much of a problem, but representing every single battery like AOE does might be a tough ask.

Corona virus

John C
 

Hi,
Sorry to inject a sombre note.   I think it is time to do some forward thinking about Corona and the group.

It is possible that the virus will hit the US very lightly and maybe not even that much in Arizona.   

However the more likely is that we will have a full blown "Corona season" with many people affected   Based on what happened in China (started in December, peaked in late January and early February and began to decline in mid-late February) it looks like China may be through most of it by the end of March or so (the number of new Chinese cases continues to decline - but they are still having new cases).
That would put the Corona "season" at about 4 months.

It seems to be ramping up on the West coast so perhaps the first month will be March or April.  If so, then the season may end in June or July.
I would seriously consider not taking any flights for the next 4-5 months, as airplanes - with completely recirculated air - are great incubators for pathogens.
A friend told me yesterday that he and his girlfriend were due to go on a cruise in April in the Caribbean.   I strongly advised cancelling it.   I think everyone has seen the problems of spread of the virus in a confined space with lots of people in close proximity,  such as on a cruise ship.

The main weapon currently against the virus, is quarantine - no drugs, no vaccine as yet.  Not just quarantine of individuals, but also part of that is staying away from crowds.  So one thing to consider is perhaps at some time in the next few weeks - depending on what the virus does - scaling back on the Saturday games or cancelling them temporarily until things blow over.

A point to bear in mind is that most of us in the TTG group are seniors.   The average death rate from the virus is not too bad - about 2 % according to reports.   However this is an average.  It is clear that the older you are the greater the mortality.   Children are the least affected.   One statistic quoted was 200 child fatalities at the time the death count in China was 2600.   That 200 is obviously bad, but in number is significantly less than occurs in children with the flu.   The flu usually hits kids and seniors the hardest.   There are a lot more flu deaths than Corona deaths this past year.

The most deaths have occurred - according to  reports - in the 70+ age group with preexisting medical conditions.  I have seen a figure of 8% mortality quoted for this.   A caveat is that no one is entirely sure that the figures coming out of China are entirely accurate.   Also young people do die from the disease.   Dr. Li, the physician in Wuhan, who tried to raise the alarm, but was initially arrested, was 34 yrs. old when he passed away.

By way of disclaimer, all of this is just my reading and understanding of news reports, commentaries, etc.   I have no particular expertise in epidemiology or infectious disease.   I am a radiologist, not an infectious disease doctor.   So if you have concerns or questions, contact your personal physician or other medical professional  for advice.    This is intended as a discussion point for the group and what the group should do about game days in the coming months.   It is not intended as specific individual medical advice.

Finally I have decided that it would be best if I did not attend the group for the foreseeable future,  until we know what the virus is doing or not doing.    I work in a children's hospital.   I am likely to be exposed to the virus at an early stage and have no wish to pass it on to anyone.   So, for now, I will stay away.   Even though children do not suffer as much as adults do, they do get the virus.   In most cases they have asymptomatic infections, or very mild infections.   But they still have infections.  Because of the dose of pathogens, even with protective gear, medical professionals tend to get the virus to a greater extent than the general population.  Currently 124 medical professionals are under quarantine in Washington State (I  think they said Washington - might have been Oregon or California, one of those).
So I think it best to stay away for now.   

See you in a few weeks hopefully

In age of eagles 1 figure equals 90 men

Around 500,000 men in Leipzig means around 5500 figures so around 1400 stands

Not the most precise calculation but a good approximation

6mm Con - This scale isn’t too popular with many in the club and many will not be interested in starting another scale in the period.

15mm Pro - The game will fit in my garage. Terrain would be about 12’x18’.
15mm Pro - I believe this is the group’s most common Napoleonic scale so filling in the gaps will be quicker.
15mm Con - We’d have to build a terrain table. I love doing this, others don’t.

25/28mm Pro - Visually appealing.
25/28mm Con - Cost
25/28mm Con - Size requirement for the game.

This sounds like great fun. 
I have French, Bavarians, Russians and Austrians in 15mm—based on Empire. Would need to know if I need to rebase.
I have French, Badeners, Austrians, Saxons, Prussians, Russians, Portuguese and other German states in 28mm if there is a basketball court somewhere to play on.

I’m thinking that Age of Eagles will need too many figures. It’s a pretty figure heavy game.

I have no figures to contribute but I am very familiar with age of eagles in 15mm. I have the rules and can lend them. 
It will be fun !!!! The day that Napoleon lost his empire for sure.

I'm game, and my project miniatures wise for the year was painting up forces for Lützen and Bautzen, so I was already in an 1813 frame of mind.

I have 15mm Napoleonics, and got the 'all generals and marshals,' Old Glory French pack for Christmas, so I can get all the relevant generals for Leipzig painted up.

I am basing for Age of Eagles because that seemed to be a common rule set in our club.

Unless you want to give Et Sans Rwsultat another try...

Previous large club projects:  Borodino, Waterloo, Austerlitz .  (I sense a theme)

After some discussion at today’s game (Thanks for running the game Ed) we have decided to put together a club project and run an anniversary game of the Battle of Leipzig (1813).
We already have all the OOB’s and maps. If you’re not familiar with the battle, its the largest battle of the Napoleonic Wars.

The anniversary of the battle falls on the October 17-18 weekend. But we could move it up a week and run it over the Columbus Day weekend if enough of you guys can keep away from all the Columbus Day car sales.

So…. Now we’re opening up the discussion to see what scale you guys would like to do it in.
The obvious choices are 15mm or 6mm. Unless you have a gymnasium and want to do it in 25/28mm.

Also, we’d like some opinions on the rules we should use. The size of the battle seems to call for a fairly low figure-per-unit count. And the units should probably represent something larger than a battalion or even a regiment.
Once we pick a scale and a set of rules we’ll need to do an inventory of "who has what”.
