Hexasim Quatre Bras 1815 Last Eagles Board Game HEX QB
Quatre Bras 1815, Last Eagles is the 4th Volume in Eagles of France series, after Waterloo 1815. Austerlitz 1805, and Ligny 1815.
Historical Battle. In this scenario, the initial deployment and reinforcement arrivals will replicate what occurred on June 16th, 1815. This is a recreation of the historical battle.
Historical battle with variable reinforcements. Previous scenario was about replicating the historical battle but not the actual mindset of the commanders who had no clue when exactly their reinforcements would arrive, and even less of an idea as to what was in front of them. With Scenario 2, while deviating from the written history, players will be able to better simulate the strategic uncertainty of the Napoleonic battlefield, for which Quatre-Bras is a very good example. Here, instead of optimizing a sequence which both players know in advance, the uncertainty about reinforcement will put players closer to the real thing than before.
Ney's early attack. This is a "what if" scenario. What if Ney had immediately attacked on the morning of the 16th? Assuming a better concentration of the II corps and immediate action from Ney, this earlier move could have happened. This short scenario can be used for tournaments and as an introduction to the game.
Wellington attacks Ney. This is another "what if" scenario for Quatre-Bras. In this scenario, we assume that Wellington would have been able to concentrate much quicker against the French left. He would then be able to reinforce Blucher and/or attack Ney.
