THIS IS AN EXPANSION. You need "Horse & Musket: Dawn of an Era" to play this game.

This is the fifth main volume in Sean Chick's Horse & Musket series, and it's the one you've all been waiting for! Horse & Musket V: Age of Napoleon brings us the man and the battles that defined an era and that continue to ignite the popular imagination to this day. As usual, we've got a set of twenty scenarios drawing from battles both famous and obscure – both the brilliant victories and the tragic disasters. These are drawn from every period of Bonaparte's career, plus a few from the War of 1812 raging across the ocean.

Naturally there are new Scenario Special Rules and a whole host of optional nationality rules to give you the flavor and detail that you want from this colorful and dynamic era. Over fifty unique named leader counters are provided – a record for the series.
