Re: French Strategy in Spain

Hi: I am a bit confused with this post. There is no Spanish Scenario as part of Wars of Napoleon, but of course you can invade Spain as part of one of the campaign games. Therefore, I don't know how you would start with only Madrid, since you have to declare War on Spain and then invade it. Is there...

Borodino scenario: Unpredictable and fun

Let me start this post by thanking Tallebois for mentioning this scenario and both Captain Orso and Durk for helping me find it. The first half of the SuperBowl was fun, but Justin Timberlake’s half time show bored the hell out of me, and I decided to give Borodino a try. In most cases, having a str...

Re: Is just playing scenarios - e.g. Borodino any good

Perhaps the same question as above. I found the Borodino scenario within the directory, but it does not show when I load the game and try a new game, so how can I load the scenario if it is not showing within the options for either the short scenarios or the campaign scenarios?

Never tried it from the Coalition side, but the way it works on the French side is that you use the diplomacy option to request expeditionary forces to be given to England from Portugal. Once they have given you forces, you should be able to command them by generals who have the ability to command t...
