The Corsican


THE CORSICAN is a set of wargame rules inspired by the Napoleonic Wars. The system was developed by Victor Barone, and can be played with scales from 6 to 20mm, since the basic concept of the rules uses the construction of Infantry Battalions and Cavalry Squadrons from Units that can house miniatures of varying scales. The main objective is to provide an easy-to-learn regulation, but don’t forget the realism and historical accuracy.


1) Rules developed for different scales, from 28mm to 6mm, at the Regiment level.

2) An original mechanism - using Action Dice - that randomizes the actions that each troop will be able to perform in the turn and gives the commander in chief (the player) the responsibility of distributing these orders with or without privileging certain Troops.

3) An original mechanism - called Action Cards - that, by means of a deck of printable cards, randomizes random events in each turn, granting bonuses and penalties to the armies involved in the combat.

4) An original combat system, which uses randomised dice rolls to determine the outcome, while maintaining a high level of reality in the confrontations between Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillery.

5) Lists with the main Generals, with quality grades for each of them (for use in-game).


Dice - The system uses 6-sided dice (d6)

Measuring tape - Measuring tape is used to determine movement distances, weapon range, etc in centimetres.

Miniatures - Miniatures represent your army. We suggest using miniatures on scales from 6 to 28mm.

Action Cards - We provide a deck of Action Cards that you will need to copy and print.

Scenarios - These are designed to match the real terrain on the battlefields. You can use your own ideas to build scenarios.

Opponents - Invite friends to a fight over the dinner table. You will become generals for a few hours.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
