Osprey Publishing To Release Napoleonic Skirmish Rules

September 15, 2016 by stvitusdancern

A new rulebook coming out in December of this year will explore the Napoleonic Wars in skirmish battles, Chosen Men.

Chosen Men

These rules allow you to play as light infantry and cavalry, concentrating on lower rank NCOs and their men. Almost like the flankers or skirmishers that went out ahead of the main troops to find and engage the enemy and keep them occupied until the main force arrived.

This ruleset if for those of you interested by the Napoleonic Wars but were turned off by the usually high model count. Now you to can get you fix of musket and bayonets with blaring trumpets and bright bold colours. These rules are designed around a model count of a dozen or so miniatures.

I have always been a fan of Osprey Publishing’s line of rulebooks and I will be looking forward to getting a read through of this one when it is released.

Have you thought about skirmishers in Napoleonic Wars?
