Played today. Excellent struggle that ended 22-17 to the French. Great intro to these massive battles.

Hi, I would like to know if while setting up the austerlitz lgb scenario, you guys also had to use the "spares" of Russian grenadiers. Because I just had 5 units (20blocks) but in the scenario there are 6 units...

If you speaking about playing with only one box of base and each extension, you are right and can be happy, if you only missing 1 unit ;)

There are different requirements to play EPIC and LGB scenarios:

EPIC Napoleonic will allow two or more players to enjoy a truly Epic size battle, but it is important to note in order to play most EPIC Napoleonic scenarios, players will need a copy of the Commands & Colors Napoleonic game and its expansions (Spanish, Russian, Austrian, Prussian and Generals, Marshals and Tacticians) This EPIC Napoleonic expansion will only provide enough units and terrain to fill any gaps.


In Epic games you should have 1 box of each to play the scenarios.

As for La Grande Battles, it is not the intention of GMT or myself, to require a player to buy multiple copies of the Napoleonic game to play a La Grande Battles scenario. I would truly hope, that two friends, both who own copies of the Napoleonic game and expansions could come together with their games, and set up a La Grande Battles scenario to share in the fun with eight friends.


For LGB scenarios the intention is, 2 players have each the required boxes to set up the scenario ;)

My dice are the hell!

Thank you, yes I was talking about playing lgb with the core box and all the expansion. Unfortunately my friends don't have this game, so I will try to resolve this issue in a other way..

if you own 1 of everything you will be short
LGB01 Austerlitz
1 Russian grenadier - substitute an Austrian Grenadier or create 4 Russian Grenadiers using 3 Grenadier and 1 Militia Block, remove Militia first.
1 Right hand fork river tile.. warm up the photocopier or just use a normal straight river tile, has the same game effect.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

It's the time of year to celebrate Napoleon's great victory, and our VASSAL game did not let him down. The Allies kicked off by occupying Stare Vinorady in strength and making bold flank attacks that saw them ahead. A vulnerable moment let the Russian Guard Heavy Cavalry sweep into the French centre, wiping out a French Foot Artillery on the way. However, the battle turned as the French surrounded and eventually eliminated that cavalry, with reinforcements pressing on to the vineyard. Meanwhile the French flanks held, until the critical moment when the French broke through in the centre and on the right, Allied units falling in quick succession.

To add, I played the French central Corps commander and had a hoot.

I deliberately moved the artillery to where it could shell the advanced Russian Guard Heavy Cavalry unless it did something. What I didn't expect was for it to charge into the middle of my force and wipe out the artillery!

However, it wasn't going any further as, with a little help from my colleague on my left, it was surrounded and eventually destroyed. It took a while, but this time let me get my infantry forward to subsequently push on Stare Vinohrady.

Sterling work by my colleague on the right meant the Allies couldn't make use of their numbers on that wing and the eventual win was 22:14.

I really look forward to the opportunity to replay this with the same teams on opposite sides.
