But during the first session we were chatting and not surprisingly, since we were playing a napoleonic wargame but the topic of my Plan N came up and Carl mentioned that he had a box of unassembled 28mm napoleonic era Austrians.
I suggested that he put them together as a start to assembling the Austrian forces for SCENARIO TWO: "The Austrians At Bay" - 1809 from Napoleons' Battles scenario book, a small fictional encounter between the Austrians and French in 1809 with a view to playing the scenario. He agreed and of course that means that I in turn will put together the French force, which is made up of:
Army Commander: 1 x General.
1st Division: 1 x General, 24 x Light Infantry, 16 x Line Infantry.
2nd Division: 1 x General, 40 x Line Infantry.
3rd Division: 1 x General, 36 x Line Infantry.
Cavalry Division: 1 x General, 28 x Light Cavalry.
Reserve Artillery: 1 x 12 pounder cannon, 1 x 6 pounder cannon.
So ignoring the generals and cannon, I need:
24 x Light, or 'Legere' infantry miniatures.
92 x Line infantry miniatures.
28 x Light Cavalry Miniatures.
