File Attachment:


On December 2, 1805, after pretending weakness and renouncing the advantage provided by the Pratzen Heights, Napoleon defeated superior forces in number, in what would become known as "the battle of the three emperors": Austerlitz.

Austerlitz 1805, from Trafalgar Editions, recreates the conditions of the battle, from the forces involved by both sides, with all the historical rigour, to the foggy conditions that conditioned the first part of the battle.

File Attachment:


Despite its historical fidelity, Austerlitz 1805 allows you to rewrite the history and obtain a different result and explore alternative strategies during the battle.

File Attachment:


A game for 2 players or more, with an approximate duration of 90-180 minutes, Austerlitz 1805 uses an innovative game system, bringing mechanics from miniatures to a boardgame without hexagons or zones, which allows us to enjoy all its aesthetic splendor.

File Attachment:


Each counter represents an artillery battery or an Infantry or Cavalry brigade. Elite units can also be found on both sides, such as the Guard Units or Oudinot's Grenadier Division, commanded by Durac.

File Attachment:


Using templates for artillery movement and range and a clear map with no hexagons or zones, Austerlitz 1805 also incorporates a simple sequence of play and a fluid game system, in which the movement capacity and range of artillery fire are measured using templates.

File Attachment:


After the Norway 1940 crowdfunding, Trafalgar: Line ships and Waterloo 1815, in Trafalgar Editions we plan to launch Austerlitz 1805 through a Kickstarter campaign on April, 30th 2019.

How many counters on the board typically?

Also, how do you move? In particular how do you change facing? You mention templates, templates like Wings of Glory, Table Air Combat? I'd love to see a photo.

And do those nifty cones of fire have modifiers when you're firing enfilade? (They should!)

Hi Sagrilarus !!!!

There are about 155 unit counters and about 290 markers.

The units move with movement markers, here I attach an image so you can see it. Depending on the type of unit, more or less markers are used (infantry units use 2 and cavalry units use 4). the movement is very flexible and that is why our map does not have hexes or reticles, it is clean.



To change formation, you just have to spend part of your allowed movement and turn the counter to show the other side

The game only contains the two artillery templates that we showed in the post. and of course, the shrapnel has an extra fire modifier ;)

Regards

The fog limits your visión to a few meters. It drowns out all the sounds, enveloping the Heights of Pratzen in a tomblike silence. You fear that the fog will hide a n assaulting French army avancing towards your position. Perhaps the worst is happening right now..


In the game game Austerlitz 1805, we could not forget the fog that covered the battlefield during the beginning of the battle. This fog, Napoleon's ally, made it impossible to see the enemy clearly.

Our game incorporates fog during the first few turns, with a variable duration, so you can plan your strategy in advance knowing that it will last between 3 and 7 turns before it begins to dissipate.

During fog, the units detection capacity is reduced and you won't be able to tell if the chits in front of you are decoys or real units until you get very close to them.



The true composition of each formation will be hidden on each player's strategic map, in numbered boxes, to place on the map when the unit is revealed.



In this way, with a minimum number of rules, great tactical depth is added to the map, as you have to adapt your battle plans to troops you don't know the exact composition of.

Looks nice.

I'm concerned you're spelling canister incorrectly. In English it's usually one n.
