Hi Sparks.

From the limited information that I have, the Dutch-Belgian's still wore a very similar colour to the coats worn when they fought FOR the French! I'd recommend either the Vallajo 930 Dar ...

I think that the lack of agreement about rulesets, scale of battle, and what a figure or stand represents, may be a signifigant barrier to Army Lists!

For my personal taste, the Company sized actions are best done using 25mm figures. I think that, as Figgy suggested, the minimum sized force I'd look at representing in 15mm would be a Brigade/Regimen ...

Impressive list.... and mostly, I can muddle enough of the French out to work out what they are! Who says that wargaming doesn't broaden the mind? (Certainly helps to broaden the waist! LOL!)

Hi all...

Looks ok at first glance through.... a lot like Victory in the Age, though?

Can I just say that I am always annoyed by the rulesets (Such as Victory!) that claim that a battalion is ma ...

I agree that actual base sizes, be they FOW or GW, are probably irrelevant, so long as both sides use the same conventions. So, let's stop getting to hung up on this at this EARLY stage, and try to be ...

Maybe you can add sapper and "pontonnier". Maybe Landwehr/opolchenie ( it's very different than line infantry I think).

For command, you have many command possible for France: "batai ...

So, now we need to hone game mechanics?

This is Flames of War, so can we agree to perhaps call a standard base, a "Team", so that we have commonality? As Don said, it really doesn't matte ...

I could almost repeat Sharpes answer, word for word, but instead I shall let my vote stand- The Peninsular War.... Not, as you say, a sideshow!
