Other people's Portable Wargame battle reports: Another Napoleonic battle

Almost as soon as I had made reference to the two earlier battle reports that appeared on the Heretical Wargaming blog, a third was published.

This was a re-fight of THE BATTLE OF HELMSTEDT ...

... the battle used in THE PORTABLE NAPOLEONIC WARGAME book to show how the division-level rules worked.

This battle report featured the elegant gridded tabletop that has been created by JWH and 6mm-scale figures from his collection. Yet again, this blog entry ends with what I consider to be a very fair and balanced commentary on the rules.

  1. A good series of battle reports and very useful for those curious about the rules.

    1. Ross Mac,

      I agree ... and it really helps potential players to understand the strengths - and weaknesses - of the rules.

      All the best,
