Has anyone ever thought of making an Axis & Allies style game but in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars? It couldn’t be called A&A ovboiusly, but alot of the units could be modified to fit the era:
Battleship to Ship of the Line, Cruiser to Frigate, Destroyer to Sloop of War (or Sixth-rate), and Sub to Privateer, Transport stays
Infantry stays, Artillery to Light (hit on 2) and Heavy (hit on 3) Cannon, Tank to Heavy Cavalry, Mech. to Light Cavalry (hit on 2 tho)
Instead of having air units there could be coastal fortifications which can return fire to naval bombardment.
The Powers could be as follows:
England, France, Spain, Prussia, Russia, America

I don’t think America was an important power in the early 19th century.
Have you tried Napoleonic Empires, for TripleA?
It uses Axis and Allies “Revised” rules, but with a different board, different units, and a very 1800s feel to it.
Napoleonic Empires thread:
Try Napoleon in Europe by Eagle Games. Great game.
There wa an idea along these lines discussed earlier here:

I think if a Revolutionary Wars/Napoleonic Wars map was to be made it would play better as a free for all as the constantly shifting alliances of the real wars would be a bit confusing to put into a set team game. Powers would be France, Great Britain, Austria, Russia, Prussia, Spain, Sweden, Denmark-Norway, Ottoman Empire and Persia. Maybe the Confederation of the Rhine and the Papal States.

I agree with Jim Napoleon in Europe is a good bet. I do think a strict axis and allies component system in a Napoleon era would be awesome.
