The recent long weekend here in NZ (Labour weekend) was an ideal time for a mate and I to squeeze in a big two day GÉNÉRAL D’ ARMÉE game. With my usual flair for planning I had prepared nothing by the time Keef arrived at 11:00am on Saturday morning ready to start gaming. After a quick chat Keef set about arranging the battle field while I mustered the troops.With the desire to push lead around the table far out weighing our motivation to balance army list points we both agreed to field two batteries of guns, four infantry brigades and a single cavalry brigade each. It should be noted here that in this rule system, standard British infantry battalions namely all eight battalions in the British 2nd and 3rd brigades benefit from a special shooting rule (superior volley) if they remain stationary. To compensate for this advantage the entire French cavalry brigade was raised one morale class making them superior to their British counter parts.
