Went browsing on Newline Designs' website and found some very nice Nap 20mm, as can't find any decent plastic Brisitch Line inf.

The Nap miniatures look great and I have some of their Carthaginian/Roman command packs, which are very good figures and go well with plastics.

Hi Dave

Do you currently have Napoleonics and if so how how many.

I assume you are looking at British, have you looked at Italeri. There are quite a few people around using them as a basis for their British Armies.

Regards
Barry

Hi Barry

Yup, just starting out, wanted to do Naps for ages (battlion/brigade level), and now have growing (unpainted) 20mm British collection.

See the "who has armies" topic - "Another closet Nap fan in CHC" posts.

But yes am wanting to do British and allies - late war. Had a look at the Italerai(Esci) stuff but not many figure poses. Newline will be more expensive, but the more I look at their figures, the more I like them.

With the rest of the army being so very cheap, it may be the one indulgence, along with some '95th' rifles, for the army.

Dave

Hi Dave

Have you seen General de Brigade rules, we use them a lot amongst my friends, they are battalion level and are quite strong on command and control. Not a lot of games at the club yet, but I hope to change that shortly.
As far as I know there are about 4 semi active Nappy's in CWC(James,Ion,Basil and myself), most of us game at Dave Clarksons place on a Tuesday night. Drop me a line if you want to see the rules in action, we usually game once a fortnight and are presently organising a campaign.

I hope to get some of the guys to get games going at the club in the next week or so as well.

Regards

Barry

Not sure what rule set to use, haven't really given it much thought (I know that sounds terrible!). But thanks, that sounds like a plan.

I'm really into the brigade aspect of the period, mixing battalions as the battle progresses.

Just adding this here for completeness:

Warhammer Napoleon

An unofficial set of rules based on the Warhammer wargame system to represent battles in the era of Napoleon. In fact, the rules would suit games representing warfare from Monmouth circa 1700, through the American Revolution, Napoleon, and even as late as the Crimea – possibly even the Indian Mutiny though that might be pushing it.

These rules are presented so that you can use them whether you own Warhammer Fantasy Battle 6th Edition, Warhammer Ancient Battles (or Fantasy 5th Edition), or Warhammer: English Civil War. However, for fear of infringing copyright, it would obviously be inappropriate to reprint rules that already exist in Games Workshop or Warhammer Historical publications, so references to the relevant rule are given instead. In general, if you have more than one of these publications, prefer the Fantasy rules, then the ECW rules, then the Ancients rules, unless otherwise stated.

The following abbreviations are used in these rules:

WFB – Warhammer Fantasy Battle (6th Edition).
WAB – Warhammer Ancient Battles.
WECW – Warhammer English Civil War.
AoC – Armies of Chivalry.

Now in the fourth revision of these rules, the author is indebted to the Warhammer Napoleon Yahoo Group for their enthusiasm, ideas, suggestions and all-round contributions. If you’re not already a member, please join and contribute to these rules yourself!
