Republic to Empire has quietly but steadily carved a little niche in the Napoleonic gaming canon over the years. It has continued to sell well both in digital and hard copy. We have neglected it solely due to lack of time capacity to cover and support everything else we produce. This first Republic to Empire video takes a step to redress that support gap.
This video takes a brief tour around...
Part Two of the video which is a fast-paced AAR for the scenario explained in part 1 is now ready to view. Unfortuntaely I didn't have time to print and mount any of Clarence's excellent new Napoleonic Armee du Nord flags but it does show our ongoing heavy commitment to period. Here are the links to parts I and II so, grab a cuppa and a biccie and take 15 minutes to visit Belgium.

Adrian made the terrain, Toggy, Gerry, Peter, Barry and several other chaps provided the 8,000 or so figures. The event was a decisive result and the game...
As I am just about to take delivery of a large quantity of The War of Three Kings I need to make some space in the store. I currently have quite a lot of Republic to Empire after commissioning a hugely optimistic print run a few years back. Although the book sells well, I will be using the remaining copies to build a small housing estate if I don't do something with them now.

This was months in the planning and involved Adrian building from scratch 72 tiles to an exact ground scale plan. Bob and Gerry spent copious amounts of both time and money swelling the ranks of their collections so that in the end, together with my own collection and contributions from Alan Cuggy, Bill Paterson, Colin Napier, Ross McNeil and Peter McCarroll we were...
