General de Brigade

Sandwikshausen, 1813

The Napoleonic Wars, General de Brigade, 28mm Good old Charles S. Grant. Whenever I’m in need of an interesting scenario for a game I dip into one of his scenario books, or stockpile of “Tabletop Teasers”. This one – dubbed “Holding Action (1)” was culled from Scenarios for Wargames, published back in 1981. Its one

The Battle of Borodino, 1812

The Napoleonic Wars, General de Brigade, 28mm A few of us from the Edinburgh club were invited to take part in a refight of Borodino, laid on by the Leuchars Wargames Club. Leuchars is about 50 miles north of Edinburgh, close to the university town of St. Andrews. I’d already lent my Russian army for

Bridge over the Burro, 1811

The Napoleonic Wars, General de Brigade, 28mm This fictitious little Peninsular  game , with a couple of brigades a side was set around a bridge in Spain – a crossing over an important river. The British had seized the bridge during the night, but the bridgehead was poorly-defended, with just two battalions of foot and

Flank Attack at Mojtijo, 1811

The Napoleonic Wars, General de Brigade, 28mm When we don’t have time to dream up a scenario, or can’t think what to do, we dip into Charles S. Grant’s Scenarios for Wargamers (1970), looking for inspiration. Dougie had been painting up French cavalry, and was eager to give them an airing, so we chose this

Rearguard at Krasny, 1812

The Napoleonic Wars, General de Brigade, 28mm Edinburgh is still gripped by snow, so rather than spend hours in a freezing hall we played a short brigade-sized game, before repairing to the warmth of the local pub. This one was set during the Retreat from Moscow, one of the clashes fought between the retreating Grande

Ferme du Grand-Champ, Fleurus, 1794

The Napoleonic Wars, French Revolutionary War, General de Brigade, 28mm This was the second little brigade-sized game we’ve played in two weeks, with the same set of rules. Both had a completely different feel though, and they were equally enjoyable in their own right. This one was based around the defence of the Ferme du

Olivenza, 1811

The Napoleonic Wars, General de Brigade, 28mm We couldn’t chance a big game this week, as my wargaming buddy Dougie’s partner was expecting a baby, and didn’t want to be away too long. Of course, technically he wasn’t the one giving birth, but you know what I mean – he was on stand-by because of

The Battle of Mozhaisk, 1812

The Napoleonic Wars, General de Brigade, 28mm This was a rare chance to play a game up in Orkney, and it was in effect the inaugural game of the resurrected Orkney Wargames Club. We have only two members so far, but its a start! Anyway, this was a Napoleonic clash, set right at the start

The Bridge at Arcola, 1796

The Napoleonic War, General de Brigade, 28mm This Saturday we all headed north to Kirriemuir, in north-east Scotland. The town is host to Targe, a small but enjoyable wargames show, which marks the end of the annual wargames calendar. Our Edinburgh club put on two 28mm games – “Toulgas 1918” (Russian Civil War), which pitched
