Re: Field Of Glory: Napoleonic Coming in March 2012!

Glad to see Slitherine have seen the error of their ways. However I have learned quite a lot about elements of the wargaming community and why I shouldn't bother doing any more research. As for Osprey - they have chucked about £1/2 million on an ABN-Amro type purchase and cashflow appears to be a pr...

Re: 1809 Austrian Ratings

I could give you chapter and verse on these units - having done a lot of research on them. However, given the abuse you and your chums handed out, I won't - maybe you children will learn some day?

Re: Three rule books?

Since this and the other thread, I have had a few requests for information, which would have required a lot of digging around and my time, let alone writing it all up. But you know, I thought of you lot, especially Hazelbark, who tell me it doesn't matter. So, I just didn't answer - that is what you...

Re: Amendment - Cavalry & Skirmishers fighting in Difficult

So, Hazelbark, you think research is worth doing and the results worthwhile? Of course, you don't do it yourself, but expect others to do it. Wurzburg required French and German sources, but why should I bother, given the attitude of yourself and a few of your chums? :? The episode at Wurzburg at th...

Re: Frei corps helmet crest

You might understand why I can be abrasive in my responses and perhaps others might appreciate that the windbags only succeed in driving out those previously prepared to do the work.

Re: Frei corps helmet crest

I know I am just a useless troll, but as hazelbark and his mini-me clearly don't have a clue, i will answer this for you. The Limburg Volunteers became the Archduke Charles Legion and a colour illustration is shown as a plate figure in MAA299, which is copied from a contemporary illustration of this...

Re:

The danger with this divide is that it does reinforce the "Reaction" mythology - the Allied armies were in a state of continuous change and reform from the end of the 7YW. I am getting concerned about these army lists and the mythology they might reinforce. If you had spent any amount of time on th...

Re: Field Of Glory: Napoleonic Coming in March 2012!

No surprise to see the idiotic remarks coming from Osprey's much beloved Yanks. Yes, why not just paint them yellow, give them repeating weapons and have them fight in triangular formations? It is only a game after all - well, except some gamers seem to think they have the knowledge to pronounce on ...

Re: Rule Book

I see it is available for pre order frpm Osprey. I am quite looking forwards to this as I have a large Bavarian Force in 28mm to paint, some Austrians and more on the way for Christmas and some French! I started like this in 15mm for Napoleons Battles and now have enough troops to fight any Battle ...

No, it is the same as the clean shoes at a job interview - first impressions count. Yes and the impression you leave is one of a distasteful individual so insufferable everyone cheers when you walk out of the room. Do you really find value in trolling here? You clearly have some demented ulterior m...

These uniform details are basic - not minor :lol: I presume you do understand that such a judgement is highly contextual. With regards to a study of Austrian military uniforms, they are indeed basic but with regards to a study of the underlying causes, courses of action, outcomes, etc. of the Napol...

Do you plan to troll every thread possible? I had assumed the post was a joke parodying the obsession with minor uniform details so common in Napoleonics gamers. To then follow it up with a tirade about the classification of some obscure unit that no one has seen yet! Champagne comedy :D Martin Com...

I cannot imagine that the hobby is enhanced in any way by abusive language, stupid accusations and an apparent indifference to a reasonable historical accuracy.

The cover artwork is rubbish - seems thy cannot even read their own output, but I am sure all of you know that Austrian German infantry had plain round cuffs! So, I wouldn't be too confident about the unit ratings - who has done those? I bet the best Austrian cavalry units are said to be the Hessen-...

I was interested to see Bob Coggins'post on TMP - he was the designer of Napoleon's Battles and it seems there may be some copyright violations involved here, which is in itself potentially not great. Likewise, he notes that NB was the only system using unit ratings - now also adopted by FoG. While ...
