for V1.1

These are very simple and straightforward Napoleonic rules for miniatures, based on orders’ counters placed on the table face down. Orders directly determine unit’s actions and combat outcomes.

The rules are at Regiment’s level, the name by which units were known by Generals, therefore minutia pertaining to the Company and Battalion organization are not directly addressed, they must be considered as factored-in.

The scale and abstraction levels are best represented by 1:100 (15 mm) miniatures or smaller.

There is minimal use of dice, for marginal effects only.

Any basing system will work, no base modifications required.

This edition will be for Continental armies, From Montenotte to Paris.

There are no markers, bookkeeping or cumbersome tables.
Note: if not using the base offset system proposed, shaken and square markers will be required.



Miniatures Scale: 1:100 (15 mm) or smaller

Simulation level: Regiment’s level; mildly abstract.

Speed: very fast.

Solo potential: very high.

What you will get:

PDF 1: 25 pages rules, with 15 large diagrams, plus cover and counter-cover, credits

PDF 2: 15 Combat Examples

PDF 3: Solo Module example, 3 pages

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.
