Featuring two complete battles of the Peninsular War, each with an alternate set-up possibility.
Eagles of the Empire is a game system that portrays the military engagements of the Napoleonic Era. Players assume the role of the army commander of a major national or allied army of the period.
The map is divided into areas that channel unit movement as dictated by the terrain. Units represent infantry divisions, artillery batteries and cavalry regiments. Leaders play a key role, activating formations and leading them into action.
Spanish Eagles will feature the Eagles of the Empire rules set 3.0, complete OBs for both battles including what-if scenarios for Talavera (Soult), hidden deployments, special British rules, and optional force breakdowns.
The game has been resized to accommodate 1.3 x .65 inch counters, but retains the scale and intense terrain portrayal for which the series is known.
Spanish Eagles is in the final design phase, with test play about to begin. A mid-2007 release is anticipated. Price and preordering information will appear here at a later date.
