A few readers of my blog have been asking for all the rules-specific scenario 'nitty-gritty' to accompany my game-reports, so here's the full scenario for a game I reported on last year - the Battle of Raab 1809.  We use 'Napoleon's Battles' rules (formerly by Avalon Hill, but now in its 4th Edition from Capitan Games), which is a 'grand-tactical' set, where each unit represents a brigade or large regiment.  The scenario could therefore be easily adapted to 'Age of Eagles', 'Bluecher' or some other ruleset designed for that level of play:

Nice scenario, very well presented.
Always a concern for the French player when the cry goes up to "Send in the Guard...." and the Italians march on.

A so well presented scenario! And your minis are always so well painted and so historically correct! Thanks for sharing!
