Anyone know of a good grognard game that deals with the Napoleonic Wars? I've been on a Napoleon kick lately.

Thanks! I'll do research on them all and pick one out. How do you guys feel about Crown of Glory?

I think Crown Of Glory a great game. As you do not mention a scale etc I am not clear what you are looking for beyond Napoleonic. However, Crown Of Glory covers all bases so I would strongly urge you to take a look at this title.

I'm looking for a game where I can play as Napoleon and kick butt. But also as his rivals are good. I am looking for a turn-based strategy PBEM game that is just.. well.. good! As for scale I am just thinking of one that covers that whole era. His rise, his reign and his downfall.

Crown of glory will certainly give that to you. There's another game more complex that Matrixgames sells that will do that also. I can't recall the name of it right now though.

While Napoleonics, I feel like a bit of a shift. Napoleon Total War worth a try for something different, its going cheap. Any thoughts?

You would also do well getting Mad Minutes 2nd Manassas and then getting the Napoleon mod if they finished making it. It's about the closest you'll get to playing Napoleon wiithout actually being him as you can ride your white horse up and down the real battleline giving moral to your troups.

Here's some quality screenshots.
