Battle of Neigenburg 1807
The campaign is a good one to do as there is a good map and the area is not to be or too small.
This game took place in June 2007.
French vs Russians and Prussians (did bring some Spanish and British as well into the campaign based on some historical information, for a What if part).
The man to figure ratio used was the WRG ratio of 1 to 50 for infantry & 1 to 40 for cavalry, artillery was allocated at 1 gun per 2 units.

We did finish this campaign (unlike the first attempt many years ago).
The French lost, the Emperor made peace with the Russians and Prussians with the Duchy of Warzaw being only half the size.
Maybe the Emperor will have to try again.
