GdC mass look

Like the new Sam Mustafa rules of "Blucher", our home-brew Napoleonic era "GdC  General de Corps" could be much like a 6mm game but in this case set to a 28mm figure sizing.

The photo shows a French attack on the Allies position at Waterloo with D'Erlon's attack in column with Milhaud's entire heavy cavalry corps in column alongside its right flank. Each stand represents a brigade.  Each has a small black die whose pip number can be changed to indicate any change in status and the green labels show the commander of each and are only temporarily attached and thus can be changed according to the battle/scenario.

  1. A stirring sight. It does resemble the scale of a 6mm battle.

    1. ...and in glorious 28 mm splendour! ...or at least a bit more eye-candy-ish than the little boys...

    1. dice and small wood dice frames by Minibits. They have now come out with 5mm! All the markers I try to make obvious to the players (or else why have them!) but subtle enough not to be sore to the eye and the table. No bright coloured bobs for me.
      Thanks for the comments!

  3. I've seen bits and pieces of Blucher on some forums and blogs. It's interesting to see the parallels come up.

    1. Yup, sorta like needing a certain tool which is not in your kit, so after some time, after trial and error and input from friends, finally deciding it will do the trick; only to find it on the hardware store shelve the next day......

      thus yes, many parallels and similar concepts!
      cheers
