The Battle of Waterloo-Plancenoit 1815 ...

Battle of Sanchobueno 1810 (January 2013)

An Age of Eagles Game

Organised by Thoran

This game was to test play another set of rules for large Napoleonic games.  So I found the orbats for a game we played in our short 1810 Peninsula campaign.
I think if the guys knew the rules better this may have worked, but it was not to be. This time around Sanchobueno progressed further than it did when we played it a few years back using WRG (this maybe just be my opinion).
I think I will stick with my first idea and using WRG for our smaller games in the 1812 Peninsula Campaign and AoE for the large games (given the supply restrictions in the campaign rules there may not be that many of these anyway).  
Anyway see below for some pictures of the days fight.
