French Napoleonic Artillery now shipping From Victrix

Napoleon was an artilleryman. That’s where he got his start in the military. And by many accounts, he was a master at utilizing it on the battlefield. Considering the battle formations still in use (regiments of men in close proximity, marching in steady lines), a well-commanded bit of artillery could take out a rather significant part of the enemy forces. Now Victrix lets you do that on the battlefield by finally releasing their French Napoleonic Artillery pieces.

Napoleonic Bundles Galore from Warlord Games

Waterloo. It was 200 years ago. One of the battles that set the course of history after it.

Je suis Napoleon!
Hehe, no I’m just kidding. Though if you or a friend are any type of Napoleon impersonator, now would be a good time to go out and get noticed. It’s the 200th anniversary of the battle of Waterloo. As such many games and specials are popping up based on that historic battle. Wargame Shop has a new board game, Grand Empires Waterloo, that you can use to replicate the events of that day. The game is part of their Grand Empire series (as you can tell from the name). When you purchase the .pdf download, you get the game board, counters, and rules for the game.

River Horse Running Waterloo – Quelle Affaire Kickstarter Campaign

Alessio Cavatore over at River Horse has just been a busy little bee lately. Along with Terminator Genisys that’s going to be on your store shelves any time now (my copy here came in the other day. Expect extra coverage of that soon), he’s been working on Waterloo – Quelle Affaire. The Kickstarter campaign is up and running and has just passed over the funding goal.

New French Old Guard Grenadiers for Black Powder from Warlord Games

While, thanks to The Simpsons, the current joke is that the French are a bunch of “cheese-eating surrender monkeys,” the truth is that for much of their history, the French army was one of the most-feared fighting forces in Europe. And some of the most-feared were the Grenadiers of the Old Guard. Warlord Games brings these soldiers back to the battlefield with the release of their new Grenadiers of the Old Guard box set for Black Powder.

Pre-Orders for French Chasseurs a Cheval Light Cavalry now from Warlord Games

Cavalry has always been an important part of an army. Napoleon certainly knew that, and so he made heavy use of the Chasseurs a Cheval (or mounted hunters, if you will) to scout and raid the enemy. In the days before satellites and even aircraft, you simply had to go and look for the enemy to see where they were at. And having a group of well-trained riders on very fast and light hordes was the best way to get that done. You can now bring these figures to your tabletop to aid in your much smaller battles, as Warlord Games has started taking pre-orders for the plastic Chasseurs a Cheval box set.
