Whether you desire to adopt the historical perspective of the allies, bravely defending key cities against the relentless French forces, or embodying the French and ambitiously conquering your way towards Brussels, these maps provide an immersive experience like no other. Furthermore, they offer ample opportunities for players to craft their own distinctive campaigns and engage in captivating nation-versus-nation gameplay.


Montigny holds strategic significance as the final town on the road to Charleroi. It was a crucial location for the French army, as its capture would allow for the concentration of forces and major engagements. Interestingly, Montigny was initially defended by a small Prussian force intent on impeding the French advance. However, it would later serve as a defensive point for the French, enabling them to cover their retreat following their defeat at Waterloo. The battle map encompasses the vital villages surrounding Montigny, highlighting the importance of securing these key locations and river crossings to facilitate progress on the route to Charleroi.

Battle grids

The map is organized into large grids, with each one measuring 10x10cm or 4x4 inches. These grids, which we refer to as operational squares, are then further divided into four smaller squares that are 5x5cm or 2x2 inches in size. This division allows for engagements on a macro level. The larger squares are utilized for moving troops in group formations, while the smaller squares are perfect for tactical engagements.This system offers players the chance to engage in combat using their preferred style.


The battle map is marked with green icons that represent important positions that can be captured. These key positions offer valuable protection against cavalry charges and artillery fire, unless the artillery is being used as howitzers. By strategically placing units in squares where the green icons are located, shelter can be obtained and control of that section of the battle map can be secured. In order to capture a key position, infantry units must successfully charge and replace the defending unit within the square, walls, roads, or at the gate/door. Additionally, mounted Generals can seek refuge within squares containing green icons for added protection and to effectively lead their troops.

Order of battle Nation vs Nation

Players have the extraordinary chance to exhibit their strategic expertise by constructing their own customized order of battle in the game. With the ability to deploy up to 80 units per nation on the battlefield, players can truly demonstrate their distinct tactical style and adaptability. The freedom to create one's own order of battle not only empowers players but also presents a myriad of opportunities to explore diverse strategies and playstyles.


Historical order of battle

In order to recreate the events that transpired in Montigny in 1815, it is advisable to assemble an attacking force consisting of 40 units of one's own choosing, while the defending side should consist of 20 units. It is crucial for players to carefully select their troops based on the combat type of the map. This necessitates a meticulous study of the terrain in order to field the most effective troops and accomplish their objectives. During this altercation, the French forces held a substantial numerical advantage over the smaller Prussian contingent. 

Engaging in a battle with a 2 versus 1 ratio can offer an engaging and formidable experience. The primary goal for the Prussians is to halt the progress of the French army by guarding critical villages and river crossings. 

Conversely, for the French army, their main objective is to annihilate as many Prussian troops as possible and capture key locations indicated by green icons on the map, thus paving their way towards Charleroi.
