We can talk Friday if you can make it out - I think I will be ordering from WARWEB soon - shipping is a flat $20 it seems.


it goes up with bigger orders. I have paid $30 for the ~$250 WWII stuff I have ordered Free shipping kicks in at ~$400

What PDF do you speak of D?
EDIT: Nvm I found it.

Also I need a few odds and sods to make a real list so I'd be in for a few things if someone does an order.

Don't worry too much about it Duaner. We all are flying blind right now. We just picked up whatever we could at Hcon to get started.

Evening gents...D sent me the link here today but of course I can't get here from work...

So, D, quick question, do you have a sense of how many points you have in your collection of lead-on-magnets-and-wood? From the organization I spec'd out of the Brunswick OOB at Quatre Bras I think they come out around 500 points max.

Well, using EVERYTHING I got in my army deal minus the hussars that I bought, it comes out to 650 points ish..

That's a Skilled Corp commander, 2 competent div commanders, 4 units of line infantry (16 bases) 2 units of Light infantry (8 bases)*, 2 units of 3x 8lbr guns, 3 units of 4 x Chasseurs Cavalry (12 bases) and 2 attachment guns for the infantry.  I barely have enough models left over for a CAMP/Objective marker Smile    (this is from Pg 95 of Eagles and Emperors, French Infantry Armee)

*my light infantry I think is same as your Jaegers.. 4 bases, 2 of which have 3x2 models per base, and 2 bases with 3 models in open order.. and these go in front. For some reason, the previous owner clipped the bayonets off a bunch of guys.. I assume its because they are the skirmishing dudes and not expected to fight?

I've been getting some advice from people on the FoGN forums and people are mentioning muskets are better skirmishes than riflemen, maybe that's what your guy tried to do?

800 pts is considered a standard game. 2 or 3 divisions, to play 1 division you can divide all the minimums in 3rd i think, its in triumph of nations, tells you how to round off 1 division games. The game is designed for 2-4 divisions, each with 4-6 units in each (more then 6 is hard to manage for moral, 4-5 seems to be more standard).

I have a few extra, though will probably donate them to Matt when I decide on what to make for a LOC marker... Last night I based everything, and started painting my Dragoon unit.. I hate painting horses!
