"Battles of Napoleon" is a new boardgame series with the goal of re-creating Napoleonic warfare at a tactical and operational level, using 1/72 figures to represent units and formations on modular game boards.
The rules are of average complexity, with enough detail to simulate the most important features of the battles of the Napoleonic age, such as formations, maneuver, the relevance of combined arms. At the same time, they are simple enough to be fun and playable for beginners.
Each set in the "Battles of Napoleon" series will include unpainted figures, modular boards, terrain elements, cards, dice, rules and scenarios. Different sets can be combined together to create larger battles.
1. Maida (July 4, 1806)
2. Cerro De Medellin (Talavera, July 28, 1809)
Battle of Salamanca (July 22, 1812)
3. Miranda de Azan
4. Los Arapiles
5. Garcia Hernandez
One-Hundred Days Campaign
6. The Road to Namur (Quatre Bras, June 16, 1815)
7. The Woods of Bossu (Quatre Bras, June 16, 1815)
8. Jerome (Waterloo, June 18, 1815)
9. Attack of the 1st Corps (Waterloo, June 18, 1815)
10. The Miserables (Waterloo, June 18, 1815)
Drawing a card to check the combat result is maybe based on luck too much and not very well related to the events on the battlefield. Instead of drawing a card look at these charts and match the die roll with the results.

I've made it a file so that I can use color to distinguish different sources.
All the questions are in black.
Editor's comments (mine) are in blue.
Red is either rulings that come from the rules or have been answered directly by the Nexus folks. Probably 30%+ of the questions asked can be answered with the rules we have.
Items in green I hesitated about including but Roberto encouraged me to do it-- these represent what I THINK the answers should be. In all cases, we can come "close" with what is written but needed some extra clarity which I've tried to provide. They are not official until someone from Nexus makes them so.
Note that some people downloading the file end up with an 'underbar' after the .doc, which prevents the...
Still some improvements, especially that:
1) recovering from disorder is not a formation change
2) UGC movement is restricted to in 1st segment
3) mass charge rules are clarified
4) house rules are updated
