About Age of Eagles

The Napoleonic Wars in Miniature based on Fire & Fury

AND WE EVEN HAVE A FRENCH EDITION!


Age of Eagles and Age of Eagles 2d Edition is the base or foundation rules set of the L' Armee Francaise series of miniature wargaming rules and is the only officially sanctioned Napoleonic variant of Richard Hasenauer's popular Fire & Fury ACW rules. Developed over a span of five years, the end product is the result of hundreds of playtests and the comments of literally thousands of gamers from the rules' supporting Yahoo Group. The project has now expanded into a French edition and expansion modules covering the Lace Wars, the Age of Bismarck and many more. While sales happen from time to time, suggested retail price is $ 30.00 US with product particulars as follows:


Age of Eagles 2d Edition. Glossy color covers, BW interiors. Same length as the original with no change in retail pricing ($ 30 US) though some costs have squeaked up and I went for a heavier weight paper on the inside. Spiral bound. This is not a revolutionary, but an evolutionary 2d project including everything from the original plus:


  • All grammar, vocabulary and spelling errors corrected.

  • Interpretations of rules integrated into the actual text of the document.

  • Rules changes, from both the author and our 3000 + person Yahoo Group added and integrated into the text of the book.

  • New rules and data charts, from both the author and the Yahoo Group added and integrated into the text of the document.

  • New army lists and generals, to include an all new Ottoman army chart and a slew of Spanish generals.

  • Changes are identified by underlined text.
