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
if you own 1 of everything you will be short
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.
There are in Europe many good generals, but they see too many things at once. I see one thing, namely the enemy's main body. I try to crush it, confident that secondary matters will then settle themselves. ~Napoleon
