1814 Napoleon at Bay Campaign

I have recently started a Napoleonic campaign at the local club based on the Boardgame 'Napoleon at Bay' covering the 1814 campaign. Rather than use the detailed hex map I changed it to an area based campaign map.

The boardgame rules were ignored and instead the campaign uses a simple area movement system with various speeds for different troop types.

Army lists have been put together from various sources including the game itself and historical OB's culled from the internet and books. I dont pretend that they are perfect but its enough to say that the French have their work cut out for them!

1814 Campaign Map

Grey area names denote major towns while those with a thick border are fortress towns.

The first major battle was at Brienne and the campaign is in its 7th turn with another major battle about to be fought at Chalons sometime next week. I'll take my camera along and make it my fist battle report for the blog.
