evening all, thought i'd just post some pre battle shots of the battle of Waterloo, windows 10, 64bit pc in use.

just playing with settings to get everything to look right, so over the next couple of shots, some may get better as i post them, sorry for that as i'm playing with the settings as i take them.





this is your right my left of my line, just softening up the enemy lines before i march to combat

Here's one from a multiplayer game last night - Waterloo scenario, army scale. Time for the Old Guard to punch through..

Don't like that Old Guard shot, the columns are far too close together. How could any of those battalions make a single manoeuvre?

as soon as you go to the largest battles, 300k on the field can look a mess at times and yes they are rather close, but as soon as they start to move they make better spacing anyway, it's just i've taken it at the start of battle as they are moving from there starting positions, where it's more about formations and looks than being ready for battle, more like a dress parade that battle ready shots, the AI is much better than i at doing distances tbh regarding formation moving

densely packed French infantry columns in a Napoleonics battle, who would have thought! Quelle horreur! :)

They were not densely packed in the manner shown. If a brigade has its columns that close in reality you tell me how each one would form a column of divisions or a line?

Columns of march like that were used only on roads on one behind another as a formation snaked its way to a forming up point before a battle. You'd never see a formation like that on a battlefield.

I was interested in seeing how the famous Tombe de Ligny is depicted on the map. These games are known for their historical accuracy and it's a structure that has always intrigued me. Any screenshot taken from it should give a commanding view towards Ligny and would be great as an observation point in HITS play, but I imagine any formation standing on it would look kind of odd though.

Looking east from the Tombe de Ligny towards St. Amand (Napoleon stood here on the Tombe de Ligny to watch the Imperial Guard attacked the Ligny).

the same view today in real life





does seem rather flat from the view, while it was a small hill, it had gradual slopes so not as shown in your picture tbh.
