Later this week the club will be refighting the Battle of Marengo using the excellent Napoleonic ruleset “Blucher” by Sam Mustafa.
These have been a club favourite since their release with the members putting on a well recieved “Quatre Bras” scenario at both Kirrimuir in November 2015 & Falkirk in May 2016. Most of the club also played the Battle of Austerlitz scenario using Alister’s excellent custom built terrain boards over the Xmas period.
During his current exile in Paris, Ross has been busy producing the cards and scenario notes for a number of battles for the club to play. These include Austerlitz, Marengo, Lützen, Groß Beeren and Friedland. He is also in the process of creating the scenarion notes and cards for Boridino, Jena, Dennewitz, Bautzen and also for the Battles of Antietam and Gettysburg for the ACW as an experiment.
The files for the Battle of Marengo game can be found below:
Those attending the game on Thursday will take notes and some pictures of the game to post an After Action Report on the club website and onto the Blücher forum too.
We hope to see you all there.

When on Thursday and where are we having the Blucher game?
What Modifications do you use for ACW? I´m working on a similar project for Blücher.
Thanks for the message – if you visit the Blücher forum here then you’ll see the suggestions we’ve made.
All very minor as at the end of the day the tactics and weapons really were not all that different from the Napoleonic period.
Let us know what you think!
