I’ve got to say, this recent posting on the Wargames Society forum depicts THE nicest Napoleonic game I’ve ever seen. You can see the many photos of this fascinating game that Joe Dever has posted here:
This game epitomises how I prefer to see Napoleonic wargaming: small actions; lots of colour; fantasy and fun; beautiful and exotic scenery; a storyline; silly names; odd little units; plenty going on. Even better is the merging of land-based and sea-going action.
I fully accept my preference is different from what many (maybe most) other Napoleonic fans prefer, who tend to go for larger, more realistic and tidier games. But, as they say, vive la différence!
Anyway, congratulations to Joe Dever and his mates for posting these pictures of their inspiring game onto the Wargames Society forum.
