Bring on full supply rules!  :D

If we do the campaign I think we're going to do, I want to be Lannes again. I need my death scene!

Fine.... then I want to give you that death scene chance...

In truth I'm more partial to playing Germans or even Austrians, since those are the armies I'm spending more time studying. I always end up playing Prussians when playing against Cyrano though, so it's nice once in a while to be on the French side.


More than a few games do the same thing with Napoleonic French that WWII Eastern Front games do with Germans.

In truth, I care not which side I'm on nor who's with or against me. The play is the thing.

Brig on a new campaign... I think I'll be better prepared this time around.... maybe....

Almost any other campaign we do will probably feel more balanced than that last one. First, because more people will know what to expect, and second, because the French were absolutely at their peak in 1806. It's damn hard to win as the Prussians in 1806.
