Millenium Con 2012 - Saturday Morning

Day 2 of MillenniumCon 2012 - Saturday Monring

Suvarov vs. Napoleon 1799

On Saturday morning, I was originally signed up to play the 54mm 'All the King's Men' game but instead I squeezed myself into a gigantic 25mm Napoleonics game on a 6' x 18' table.  The game used the Carnage and Glory II ruleset.  The game was managed by the GM with a laptop at one end of the table. Each miniature unit was given a designation number and a label.  When each players moved, charged or shot at another unit, they player would report the unit number and target number to the GM. The GM entered the info and reported the results to the group.

A good example of the size of the battle

Most of the game, I was focused on my brigade of Hungarians, and knew little of what was happening on the opposite flank.

The figures were 28mm Eureka French Revolution line.  All beautifully painted.


This was easily the largest game I've ever played and it was absolutely awesome!  Ten players were involved and after four hours of fighting, the outcome was still in dispute.  We all agreed that another four hours were necessary.
