We've really enjoyed the free Napoleonic rules released by Perry Miniatures called "Valour & Fortitude." This free rule set allows you to play division (or small corps) sized actions with buckets of six-sided dice and a single page QRS. Today, we're offering up a historical scenario we created in the club for the Battle of Montebello in June 1800. The scenario includes a map, OOBs, special rules, and base labels.
And, in addition to the scenario, we also present our revised Quick Reference Sheet for the rules. This is the QRS we use in the club...it's more comprehensive and user friendly (we think). Don't forget, "Valour & Fortitude" is available 100% free from the Perry website for you to play the full game!
* JANUARY 2023 UPDATE: We've added some clarification to the starting deployment for both sides, including a revised map with deployment details! The scenario PDF is updated accordingly.
PS--If you're one of our incredible Patreon supporters, don't forget to visit us there for an exclusive post-battle chat with Keith and Greg as they trade strategies, talk about the historical action, and do some good-natured trash talking.
It's just days until Christmas, making this our fourth and final scenario giveaway! This week we have three fantastic new scenarios for you and your friends to try. Miles wrote an Age of Sail scenario for the only major French naval victory of the Napoleonic Wars, the Battle of Grand Port. This is a small frigate action presented in a way for you to tailor it to your ruleset of choice (ours, for the record, is Fire as She Bears).
Tom wrote a Sharp Practice AWI scenario focusing on the intense skirmishing in New Jersey during the winter forage wars. You can download his scenario below! And finally, Keith prepared a brand new Ravenfeast scenario for a Viking raid on a monastery. "Ring the Bells" can be found on the official Ravenfeast website right here!
Finally, don't forget that this week we're giving away a 2022 subscription to the new Military Miniature Magazine to one lucky YouTube commenter. A second random commenter will get a copy of the first issue from October 2021!
Last week we aired our epic, 4-table Brandywine wargame with the American Battlefield Trust! We had a blast playing this game on the battlefield using a streamlined set of rules we developed called Live Free or Die. The game was originally based on Andy Callan's brilliant 1987 article, Loose Files & American Scramble. If you find the homebrew and rule writing process interesting, we think you'll love our current podcast series tracking the writing and playtesting in real time.
You can learn more about Live Free or Die here, and we have a FREE Princeton scenario for you to check out!
If you saw our "choose your own ending" Austerlitz wargame on YouTube, then you know we played this epic battle on a 12' long custom table, divided into three sections. And to resolve the battle, we used Dave Brown's General d'Armee rules, modified for brigade-sized formations instead of battalions. Our map, orders of battle, scenario notes, and General d'Armee rosters are available for free right here! Just grab yourself the free PDF below and check it out! Thanks for joining us on the "Free Stuff" page, where we do our best to share every single scenario we play on the channel!
