  1. Ooh, very tempting for picking up the second edition. I've been wanting it, but never pulled the trigger. I've about worn out my First Edition print book.
    And thanks to your scenario book, I've lost my mind. I now am 8 generals and 3 battalions short of being able to field the entire Austrian army for Wagram. I can probably get 1/3 or maybe 1/2 of them on my table, so I'm not sure why I built the entire army. Just to be able to say I did it, I suppose.
    Now, I'm going to have to upgrade my French so I have their entire OOB. The madness continues...

    1. For $1, you'd be crazy not to pick up the 2nd edition... IMHO only, of course! :-)

      The Austrian OOB for Wagram is both large an pretty cool. When we ran it at Historicon 2009, my own troops were the bulk of the Austrians, but we still had large contingents from Thomas, Rodger, and small ones form a few others in order to have enough Line infantry and Cuirassiers, and I must have painted about 150 Landwehr for the game. We didn't even try to include Johann's force.
      Much the same was true of the French forces.
      I obviously share the same disease, as I am constantly resisting the urge to add another 4 line units to my French and Austrian armies, both of which are well over 1,000 figures each.
      I think Wagram was one of my favorite wargames of all time, so if you keep painting and can find a big space and enough tables and players (10 -16), consider running it as a day event, much like we did with the 1815 Waterloo Snappy Nappy campaign.
