the next three expansions are announced. Gone to 240 odd orders for each.
Austrian Army
Prussian Army
Russian Army
The amount of orders will determine the order in which they are released.

Excellent news but not sure if the P500 system works for UK or that it's cheaper to order from UK suppliers when the expansions are available. Hopefully one day there will be an EPIC expansion too.

One thought about the lack of extra boards and the fact that there is no 'open' end to the base game board, is that bigger battles will be broken up into linked smaller sceanrios?

I'm new to the Napoleonic period but VERY excited about the new expansions and scenarios! Now, when can we actually get our hands on the first expansion?

P500 Should work for England, it certainly does for South Africa.
All of my GMT games have been via P500 and the savings offset the shipping cost.
Shipping cost and import duty are the killers, all those blocks are heavy, import duty is on total price including shipping and the blocks are wasted on me as I play with miniatures anyway.
I have several boxes of blocks from the CC:A expansions that have never been seen stickers.
If I could buy just the printed materials, boards, dice and card deck, even at full price, it would save a fortune in shipping.

Message from Tony Curtis on the likely availability of the Spanish exapnsion in the UK ahead of Christmas...

"It will be close run, but probably yes, or if late, not by much."

Fingers crossed!

I ordered the 3 too and one friend of my club did it too.
It's interesting purchasing that way (P500) to support art & developpment and it's cheaper than to buy in our casual gameshop. We make an order for a certain number of gamers interested (5 for example for the 1st expansion), so shipping costs are divided.

Interesting comments from Richard Borg on the next expansions...

When looking at the different Napoleonic Armies and how they stack up against Napoleon’s French, each army, Austrian, Russian and Prussian, under certain circumstances, and at times were equally good and efficient soldiers. Each army however, was good in its own way by virtue of national qualities, drill and its commanders. Therefore by design, each army, Austrian, Russian and Prussian will require players when in command to learn and develop new tactics to successfully oppose Napoleon’s French war machine. And in turn, as the French commander you will be challenged on how best to deal with these new opposition armies.

In regard to the scenarios as listed, the final scenario selection for each of these expansions is still under consideration. Why, because we have a number of battles that in fact do field two coalition armies against Napoleon. But to include any of these battles would be pointless unless there is some certainty that the proper army expansions are available about the same time.

The Spanish have arrived in the UK :woohoo:

I have already put the stickers on and looked through the new rules and units. All set to play!

Many thanks to the developers and GMT for getting this expansion to me so quickly!
