• @Emperor_Taiki:

    I just noticed you included riflemen aswell!

    Where are the stats for the Napoleon’s flying dragon unit?

    Do I dare ask what the flying dragon is?

    It’s an equally serious response to the seriousness of this thread.

    So yeah I would have generals around where some big battles will happen.


  • Okay I got the UK’s setup on I’ll do some edits on it later and I’ll put Russia and Austria on next, but won’t put an update, next update on the site, will be costs and stuff anyways here’s the site

    http://sites.google.com/site/napoleonicwarsgame/setup


  • I’m actually doing something similar, but only for my own amusement. I’m using the map and some tokens from Napoleon in Europe, the units from Viktory II, the chits with the generals from Age of Napoleon, and the battlefield rules from Napoleon’s War for tactical battles.

    It will play as a sort of Napoleon: Total War, The Boardgame. The ship pieces included with the Viktory II set are excellent for naval engagements.

    Altough this isn’t an Axis & Allies clone, it will look and feel a lot like it, with area movement, dice rolling, and plastic units.


  • @Dylan:

    calvary? Outside Jerusalem?
    ahh now I get it. swords into ploughshares and then… cha-ching no hill.

    You’re quite right. Couldn’t do that landscaping with muskets.

    I’m using photoshop to make the map.


  • I should have this done by around the end of the year, dunno, I’m still a bit unsure about somethings, but it will somehow be released wherever it’s printable, actually, played online, still don’t quite know.


  • I change my mind about Austria and Russia not getting boats, but I’m still confused about a setup for naval’s.

    But more important! RUSSIA’S TERRITORIES ARE ON THE BOARD!!! 😄

    Do you like it?

    The Ottoman Empire doesn’t border Ukraine and your map doesn’t look close to the real world

    If you don’t care about that stuff, why call all the territories what they are? Just make up random names

    Because I want it to be a game.


  • @i:

    dylan based on the maps here you should hire someone to do it. because those really suck i can draw great maps but, i dont have a camra. so i cant post one 😢 😢 :oops:

    I made that with a mouse, I need a tablet, that could just be a rough copy, dunno.


  • As a big-time admirer of Napoleon and the Napoleonic Era (much more than WWII era), I gotta ask why there are “swordsemen” in this game. I know you’ve said multiple times you don’t care about the issue, but it’s a big one. Swordsmen were phased out of mainstray European armies by at least 1700.

    Come now, I’m genuinely trying to figure out something here. The least you can do is give a reasoning that’s at least a sentence?

    He is a little kid who dosnt understand what the Napoleonic Wars were, thats all it is.

    Dylan, i appreciate your enthusiasm but you should read a book on the subject before you make a game out of it.

    You should also reference a 1812 map of Europe and draw the map by hand, then post a picture of it if you must.

    Here is a start
    Europe 1805

    Europe 1808

    Europe 1812

    I know some things!

    So I’ll attempt to draw a map then try to do the same on the computer, but it may have to be a printable game, but the pieces might be annoy to deal with


  • @Dylan:

    More important: do you understand that there are things you have yet to learn.

    Dylan, its tough to take you seriously when you claim not to care about accuracy of maps or units.  As others have said, you really should do much more research than you have.  You are posting this because you want our feedback right and not just to jack up your post count right?  I sometimes wonder as many of your posts are not even a sentence.  You are creative and show enthusiasm, two great qualities that will serve you well over the years.  However, you need to add in some hard work in the form of research, do your thinking and work, then present something more complete here and I am sure it would be welcomed.  I suspect things probably come easily for you and you may have gotten by so far in life based on your above average intelligence.  This works when you are the big fish in the little pond, but sooner or later you will come across people not as bright as you but damned hard workers, or worse, equally intelligent and harder working, or the worst of all, gifted people who also work hard in which case you best become their friend!
