The French in Russia

In two weeks’ time, the French will clash with Russian forces under the command of Wittgenstein. This will be the first time that a Napoleonic game using DBA will be played at the club and judging from the interest to join in, this should be fun.

The DBA-HX variant has been adapted to use the newer version 3.

Here, the French are stirring out of their camp during the early hours to meet the enemy.

The French in Russia (1812) is a participation game that will be held on the 9th of April. Location is the Klokhuis in Amersfoort, time 19.30 hours. The rules are relatively simple and in 10 - 15 minutes you are ready to play. 

Battle report with photos should be posted at the end of the week.

Nice figures. I like the flags and specially the Russian command stand.
Makes me want to do DBA again.

Our game is on the 9th and I should have a report with photos posted the day after.

Five are new to the DBA system, but they should quickly learn the essentials of the game after a bound or two.

The variant is based on DBA3, so movement, shooting ranges and combat factors follow closely the Ancient based set.
