Its all Napoleon all the time at the moment with two Didier Rouy games from Pratzen Editions! Our early play with their PBeM game series is proving to be fun for me. We will see how the participants feel at the end.
This time a test of play of Le Retour de l’Empereur. Part of the Long Live the Emperor series of which only two remain in print.
Visually interesting with oversized hexes 30mm, and all the units are rectangular. More slender counters represent skirmishers and step losses etc.
The maps are a soft pastel set of colors. Subtle but European in style evoking some solid period feel for sure.
With just a few turns under my belt this system might be the ‘just right ‘ level of detail I have been looking for. Deeper and richer than NLB, less fiddly and cumbersome OCD than La Batt.
Once I play a full scenario I will attempt to put some more thoughts together.
