‘Absolute Emperor” Napoleonic rules added

Paul Le Long has reviewed a new set of Napoleonic rules, “Absolute Emperor,” and finds them cleverly designed with an emphasis on simplicity. With the playing units representing divisions, even the largest battles can be played on a relatively small table.

It’s on the Reviews page.

    Thanks for reviewing this Paul.

    I watched the Wargames Illustrated youtube video on this previously, and it is nice to get an additional take on this ruleset.

    Thanks Chris.

    Re: the video links in the review – Jim Owczarski has posted another in the meantime, this time a full play-through of Waterloo, again with the author involved. It comes in at just under 3 hours but I think it shows off the rules better than the training scenarios. Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x86Vkdb6mxk

    Thanks for the review. I’ve read it and it looks worth trying. I agree with you on presentation, I spent ages looking for the ‘success / to hit’ numbers as well. I was surprised by the omission of 6mm, my preferred option for large battles – your effective table size covers a much bigger area, plus they are cheap and easy to paint (in an impression style). I understand the appeal of 28mm for smaller games (I have quite a few 25 / 28mm figures myself) but I do like the visual impression of 6mm as a grand battle.
