Absolute Emperor Osprey's latest offering
« on: March 02, 2021, 10:04:27 PM »
New rule set by Osprey called Absolute Emperor

See: https://ospreypublishing.com/store/osprey-games/osprey-wargames/absolute-emperor

From the late Revolutionary Wars and Egyptian campaign, to the battles of Austerlitz, Borodino, Leipzig, and Waterloo, Absolute Emperor is a mass battle wargame that provides all the rules needed to play during this period of grand armies and sweeping campaigns. Players' armies are composed of multiple corps, with command and control being of the utmost importance, all influenced by the elan of your general. Do you follow in the footsteps of Napoleon and be crowned the Absolute Emperor or stand against tyranny as Wellington and Blücher.

Publication Date: 27 May 2021
This title is not yet published.

I am looking forward to playing this - lets hope it does not disappoint.

Ooh — I'm always happy to check out another army level Nap game.  I suspect I'll stick with DBN, but will certainly give it a read.

It is always nice to see new rules, but I hope for more information about it. Is it card-driven and so on. Osprey is always "mysterious" about their Releases.

I think the author also wrote an RPG for Osprey?

I am interested to see what this looks like.

Certainly be nice to hear the authors take on things but I can't seem to find a blog or similar by the author as is the case with many other Osprey Games.
