Napoleon in Italy

RIVOLI – MillenniumCon 16

I ran another game of Rivoli in Austin last weekend at MillenniumCon 16.  This is the third Con we done this.  First time was Rivoli sans most of the cavalry.  Second time it was really Suvorov’s 1799 OOB against the French Rivoli OOB.  This time is was the French Rivoli OOB with a few extra French horse and two Polish Legion battalions verses the Austrian Rivoli OOB with five Russian Musketeer Regiments (2 Bns each) and a few Cossacks added.  Big game, lots of fun.  Carnage & Glory II rules, which are just better every time we use them.  I should have my Austrian Hussars and Uhlans finished within the month and at that point I’m done I think.  Perhaps I need a few Russian guns and one or two 12pdr Austrian batteries, but that would be it.

All figures are Eureka Miniatures, aside from a few leaders and the Polish Legion, which is Trent Miniatures.

Here are a few photos –
