Our latest Napoleonic big game was a fictional action, the Battle of Perekrjostok, on the Northern wing of the 1812 Russian campaign. The game was fought at Hugh Wilson’s house on a 14ft by 5ft table. I provided the scenario and the figures. There were 6 players and I umpired. Donald Adamson, Jimmy Conquer and Mark Taylor were the Russian players. Colin Jack, Dave Paterson and Hugh Wilson were the French players. After Jimmy Conquer departed before lunch I took over his Russian command. It was a good fun game.
I have included a full report of how the game played on my blog and I have added a Perekrjostock 1812 page which gives more complete information on the game set-up, terrain map, rules used, the player briefings and order of battle.
It was actually a hidden scenario based on a real action - more on my blog about that.

Opolcheniye go in against the Swiss - who threw 6 hits against them - not a good first action
