The figures have a good amount of detail, which is very pronounced. Should paint up nicely. They fit reasonably well with AB 15mm figures, they just look a little better fed. Hieght wise there is not much in it. Side by side you can see it but based in units I dont think you would notice.
Napoleon At War is probably as close as you can come to Flames of War for Napoleonics without getting sued. The marketing, scenarios and even the rules will feel vaguely familiar to any FOW gamer. Having only had the chance to play one game so far. I am undecided wether its a success. We did have fun and a few laughs but also found a few holes in the rules. They do have a forum, ala Flames of War. So we might be able to find some answers/errata there. Will see how the next game of it goes. Has promise to become our set Napoleonic rules of choice but FOG Napoleonics is on the way soon and will have to see ?
