A slew of small two to four player battles, terrific for evening games and introducing new players. Accented by Napoleon's famous success at Austerlitz, a battle that will surely turn heads at a convention.
Do the Austrians break out of Ulm and succeed without Russian help?

For 1805 there are nearly 250 individual units, most with unique uniforms. Collecting all the necessary source material, across scores of books and images can be very daunting.

To help, we've done the work for you. Hundreds uniform images: detailing every regiment featured in the scenarios. All in one place, for easy reference, organized by unit.
Officers, musicians, elites, rank and file, even NCOs, and support troops like sappers, pioneers, and artillery train. In one place.
No page flipping, no book shuffling.
