Battlefield Game Board

The battlefield game board (hereafter referred to as the battlefield) is a hex grid, 13 hexes wide by 9 hexes deep. The battlefield is divided into three sections by two dotted lines, giving each player a left flank section, a center section and a right flank section. Where the dotted line cuts through a hex, the hex is considered to be part of both the flank section and the center section.

 

Terrain Tiles

The Terrain Tiles represent a wide range of terrain features and are placed on the battlefield to recreate the historical scenario.
Terrain rules are explained in detail in the Terrain rule section.

Command Cards

Units may only move or battle when given an order. Command cards are used to order your troops to move, battle, or do something special. For a description of all the Command cards, see Command Card rule section.

Battle Dice

Each battle die has six blank indented sides that will require stickers. Each die should have the following stickers placed on its indented faces: two Infantry symbols, one Cavalry symbol, one Artillery symbol, one Flag symbol, and one Saber symbol.

National Unit Reference Card

Each of the major powers that fought in the Wars of Napoleon will have a National Unit Reference Card.
A National Unit Reference Card details:

Note: Not all nations had the same organization therefore the number of blocks for a specific unit type may differ.

Units and Leaders

Each unit is composed of a certain number of blocks. The number of blocks in a unit may vary by unit type and Nation and is detailed on the National Unit Reference Card.
A General, Marshal or Field officer of any rank (hereafter referred to as a leader) is represented by one rectangular block. A single Leader block is not considered a unit.

Applying the Stickers: Apply appropriate unit stickers to the fronts and backs of the blocks for each unit. Place the British unit labels on the red blocks, the Portuguese unit labels on the brown blocks and French unit labels on the dark blue blocks. We suggest that you separate the blocks by color, then sort blocks by size. Start with the British units. Pull out 36 small red blocks.

Find the British Line Infantry stickers on sheet 3 of 6. Peel and place a sticker on the front and back on the 36 small red blocks.
When you run out of the 36 blocks, move on to the British Light Infantry. Pull out 10 small red blocks. Find the British Light Infantry stickers on sheet 4 of 6. Peel and place stickers on the front and back on the 10 small red blocks. When you run out of 10 blocks, move on to the British Rifle Light Infantry units that need 6 blocks. Keep going in this fashion until all the British units are completed. Then move on to the Portuguese units brown blocks, and then to the French units using the dark blue blocks. It will take a little time but it will be worth the effort! A few extra blocks and stickers are supplied as spares.

The two infantry in square tracks and the numbered counters are used to track infantry units that have formed square on the battlefield.
