This is scandalous.
We are in 2014 and i never saw awful maps like those furnished with this game.

So I made my own maps.

Interesting. I made the Vassal mod for all all of the games. (Note: the Gates of Moscow is not my work. I made the 100 days module and included Gates of Moscow and both Battle Packs into it).

I got extremely familiar with the maps because I scanned them, pieced them together, and then graphically touched them up to remove the seams. I thought they were really beautiful. Gates was less so than 100 days because I liked the darker colors of 100 days.

But to each his own.

Precision : the ARTWORK is BEAUTIFUL !!!

BUT...

The maps are in two pieces : this is not playable.
Also, the hexagones are too small.

Plexiglas, bro. Plexiglass.

Good news: you can play it on Vassal. The hexes are plenty big enough there.

Not nearly as good as some of the stuff from GMT (or Avalon Hill, back in the day), but I did not think they were that bad.

That said, it seems the Napoleon's War line is all but official dead.
