Barry,

You reckoned that you had about twenty people. You realise that at RtE scale that's an under strength battalion.

Barry,

OK then, if you do a second edition of RtE for Star Wars fans would it be called R2E2?

Jim :lol:

info on the Scenario

Post by barr7430 » Thu Sep 16, 2010 10:53 am

OK Folks,

finally I have some information on the shape of the scenario for our big weekender coming up:

Battle date: 15th June 1815
Location: North of the Sambre River.
We will use two seperate tables. On the first elements of Wellington's Army with engage with elements of I & II Corps of the Armee du Nord (D'Erlon & Reille). On the second table elements of Ziethen's Prussian I Corps will engage with elements of III & IV Corps(Vandamme & Gerard) of the Armee du Nord.

Objectives... you'll just have to wait and see!

Sides have already been chosen:Bob, Jim, Matthew, Robbie, Alan, Hugh & Bill are French.
Ray, Paul, Peter, Neil, Tom and Mr Reidy (sorry I missed your first name on the booking! :oops: ) are the Allies/ Prussians.
Dave, David, Ade and myself will play but in subordinate roles. We are just waiting on one or two final confirmations to see if the numbers go up.

Some of you will be commanding your own figures by request (Ray!) For everyone else all you need are you dice, a tape measure and the rules.

More info nearer the time but really looking forward to it.. Any questions just shout!

Did you not suggest having Ray do a frontal charge against the French Grand Battery/ :twisted:

Barry,
Cant make the Saturday, is there any chance of getting stuck in as reinforcements for the allied sector on Sunday morning? I could even provide several battalions of Dutch/Belgians/Nassau/Brunswick if required.
