" "Battles of Napoleon" is a new boardgame series with the goal of re-creating Napoleonic warfare at a tactical and operational level, using 1/72 figures to represent units and formations on modular game boards.
The rules are of average complexity, with enough detail to simulate the most important features of the battles of the Napoleonic age, such as formations, maneuver, the relevance of combined arms. At the same time, they are simple enough to be fun and playable for beginners.
Each set in the "Battles of Napoleon" series will include figures, modular boards, terrain elements, cards, dice, rules and scenarios. Different sets can be combined together to create larger battles."
