This comprehensive guide will cover all the new components that have been added to the game in recent months, giving players a thorough explanation of the game mechanics and allowing them to fully enjoy all that Marshals Unleashed has to offer. So whether you're a seasoned veteran of Napoleonic wargaming or a newcomer looking to delve into the world of Marshals Unleashed, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Get ready to immerse yourself in the thrill of historic battles and strategic gameplay - have fun playing!

We are pleased to announce the launch of our updated manual for "Marshals Unleashed: Land Battles." As the game has evolved with additional content, it was essential to revise the manual accordingly. We have made significant strides in clarifying game mechanisms by incorporating more examples, illustrations, and detailed descriptions. Drawing on both our own experiences and feedback from our players, we have refined the battle rules to improve overall gameplay. The key changes include:

  • Multiple action points can be utilized to engage with the same unit (not in movement)
  • The artillery's firing capability has been refined: it is now limited to one shot per battery, though multiple action points can still be employed with the same battery. Each standard artillery hit inflicts 1 damage point, increasing to 3 damage points at short range. This adjustment is intended to enhance the artillery's durability during the game while mitigating its overall impact.
  • The "cannonade" feature has been changed in the "Grand Battery Bombardment." If the dice roll results in an artillery icon with triple skulls, up to six aligned batteries may simultaneously engage and target enemy units with guaranteed hits. Previously, this outcome was associated with using just one artillery battery and achieving triple hits.
  • To further enrich your gaming experience, we've introduced a dice expansion set that you can download from our website under /tools/virtual-dice. For more detailed information, please visit our website.
  • Moreover, cavalry units are now capable of charging as a regiment when deployed in line formation across two adjacent engagement squares. This maneuver requires only one action point but allows both cavalry units to charge and target enemy forces effectively.


If you have previously purchased the manual, you can redownload the new edition fr free. We will be republishing the manual on Wargame Vault to increase its visibility. Please refrain from purchasing or downloading it as a new product when we release it under the title "Marshals Unleashed: Land Battles Manual."

For the convenience of our international customers, the manual is also accessible in Spanish, German, and French. Please note that these translations have been generated using online translation tools. Therefore, we recommend referring to the English version for clarification when necessary.

We highly recommend thoroughly reviewing the new manual, as it is designed to provide you with comprehensive insights on maximizing your experience and performance while playing Marshals Unleashed.
