Well this year saw the Taupo Grenadiers host the Annual Napoleonics Event in Taupo NZ on the 11th-13th September.I decided to put my hand up to organise this event, and I enjoyed every bit of it. So what did we have on show:

6mm Napoleonics
15mm Napoleonics
28mm Napoleonics
Napoleonic Naval (1:1200)

The rules we used were for the 15mm were an addaptation of In the Grand Manner as well as General de Brigade.I floated between running the 15mm guys, and the 6mm.

We ran a semi-fictional campaign (Just ran out of time to write up the fluff). Points were awarded for:

Battalions in Retreat (As soon as it recieves a retreat order)
Battalions in Rout
Brigades Broken
Generals Lost
Secondary Objectives

Players were also awarded points individually for Victory / Loss in a game, votes for painted army, votes for best oponent, and most napoleonic.

Before I start to post the photos, just a couple of thanks:

Nic and the team @ Eureka Miniatures for there ongoing support from year to year
Craig @ littlmenbigbattles for supporting the event
Steve @ Taupo Hobbies also supporting the event
Ken & Richard @ Battlezone also for supporting the event.

But the event could not have gone ahead without the support of the gamers.It will take me a while to upload the photos, so I will do this over a series of posts

Thanks for looking
