This unit straggled from one of my Napoleonic games I think. But, which one?

Thanks,

Do you have a Waterloo or Quatre Bras game at the Brigade level?

I have several actually.....which is part of the problem.

I THINK it may be a GDW counter. I am trying to locate those games...I have a LOT of games.......

Judging by the picture on the counter which seems to show a mitre I'd say more likely a Brunswick brigade from an AWI game - unless you're sure its Napoleonic?

I think you might be on to something.

I have a hunch it is a magazine game.

I have taxed my google-fu.

No....I am NOT sure.....could very well be a AWI game...the picture does look of that era...I just found them under my table in the Library. I have been sorting and re-shelving games lalely and I am not sure where this came from.

AND perhaps they should be shot....or at least brought up on charges...

Recruited in Brunswick in 1781, von Specht's regiment was part of Burgoyne's left wing at Saratoga.

I know that game well. Excellent design. In fact in the late 80's I walked the real battlefield with the game magazine in hand.

This is a counter from:

Birth of a Nation

Well... I am at work right now. And I remembered that counter almost 33 years after playing the game for the first time. So give me a break!

But both battles of Saratoga were in 1777?
