Battle of Barossa - Devon Wargames Group
« on: March 15, 2015, 11:07:23 AM »
Hi all,
With the 204th anniversary of General Graham's famous victory at Barossa fought this month in 1811 it was added fun to re-fight the battle based on Dave Brown's General de Brigade Scenario.

We also tried out a home variation on a rule set from James Purkey at Fife & drum Miniatures that gave us a nail biting end to the game and provides possibilities for the basis of a fast play set of rules for Napoleonics.

If you would like to know more then just follow the link to the Devon Wargames Group blog.


Often it is better to remain silent and let people think you are stupid than to open your mouth and remove all possible doubt.

Barossa is one of my fav scenarios - remember thumbing through the scenarios in General De Brigade and instantly gravitated towards this one, also Sharpes Fury just added to it lol. Brilliant Bat rep - looking forward to seeing this play out via G&G

Hi adamish, thank you, glad you enjoyed the read. The rules we used were pushed to their limits and like you I am looking forward to letting C&G loose on this battle. It makes a nice change to attack with British.
