The 1809 Campaign is one of the most interesting and yet one of the least known to most people. Napoleon was hip deep in Spain and not ready for another round with Austria when they started moving west. In a few short weeks the Austrian armies were destroyed and would not play a large part again until 1813.
The Austrian armies were large but hamstrung with a antiquated command system

I just finished watching this movie, it arrived today via USPS only a week delayed from projected delivery. The Web-site said their was a delay in a part of the package that was not the movie. OK. Works for me.
I did spend the dollars and get the deluxe version. The box set is nice, with cover artwork around the outer cardboard shell. Sliding that off, you have a heavier cardboard box, open at the bottom for the goodies to fall out. The artwork is the same and is iconic to the game.

The two Grenadier battalions mentioned in the last blog entry- 30 figures each. You can see the greenstuff Sappeur in the second battalion.
Three completed- 57 to go.

I read somewhere in a set of Napoleonic rules that there were more Grenadiers of the Guard and Scot's Greys on the tables of wargamers than ever existed in reality. This is no doubt true, but up until now I have stayed away from building these units...up until now.
Victrix came out with the Grenadiers of the Guard box with 60 figures and I had to get them. Even if I never put them on the table

This article will quickly discuss the various other nations you can field with our two primary armies, the British and the French.
In this post, the French exported revolution to the various states in Europe during the wars and brought them into the fold, so to speak, against the English. They often reformed these allies into clones of their own national army, restructuring the battalions into a six company organization, and often uniforming the men into a similar pattern of clothing.
