I don't see Austerlitz listed in the scenarios for the Austrian Army expansion, or the Russian Army expansion. Seems a strange omission.

If I may, I created a Vassal scenario waiting for an official Austerlitz.

assumed that Austerlitz would be an epic sized scenario. (or perhaps more than one epic sized scenario)

I am waiting to hear more about Epic C&C Nap.

Give us news.

Well, I know the rule book mentions a "La Grande battile" expansion, so there's that.

Most of the C & C games only include scenarios you can play with what is in the core set box plus the expansion box you have in hand (even though most of us buy them all). So yes, I'd expect coalition battles to be in Grand Bataille mode. As there were plenty of them, it will sell especially well...

yep, disappointed there is no Austerlitz scenario, even a small section (e.g. aisle under Davout).

It's not like Austerlitz was a major Napoleonic battle, is it...

I was a bit surprised not to see any Austerlitz sceanrios included aswell. I mean they did other large battles like Borodino where they made many sceanrios from the battle, which could also be done with Austerlitz. Though I don't know why this wasn't asked in the Russian expansion thread since the Russians made up the main part of the Army at Austerlitz. Anyway maybe it is going to be given the Epic treatment where the Russians and Austrians can be put throughout the map.

Yeah, seems a bit of a gyp.

I get they are going to save the attempts at the whole battle (or even large sections) for an expansion focusing on multi-national battles, but it would seem both this and the Russian expansion could have had one or two Austerlitz scenarios focusing on smaller actions using just the Austrians (or just the Russians).
