General

Both the 1812 and 1813 campaigns take place during non-winter months so the Rules/factors relating to “Winter” can be ignored.

Rules 6.3 and 8.7 (French foraging) do not apply for Turns 1, 2, 8, or 9.

The initial set up and the arrival of reinforcements is as per the Basic game until the earlier of the completion of Turn 7 (September 1812) or the deployment of at least eight (8) depots by the French.

At this point, the two armies go to winter quarters as follows:

First, the French

All disrupted units are returned to good order.

All units are moved to friendly cities or unfriendly ones occupied by a friendly depot. (Rule 4.1 applies.)

The following reinforcements may be deployed on any friendly cities or unfriendly ones occupied by a friendly depot. (Rule 4.1 applies.)

IX Corps (1CL), Augereau

XI Corps (2Iv, 2IL), Victor

The French player may choose one friendly city. or an unfriendly one occupied by a friendly depot, to be designated as an USS. An unfriendly city must be on a hex bordered by a river which flows into the Baltic Sea, and none of the down-stream cities bordering the same river can be occupied by Russian unit(s).

A friendly city will remain an USS unless and until it is occupied by a Russian unit(s). An unfriendly city will remain an USS unless and until it is occupied by a Russian unit(s), or unless and until a down-stream city is occupied by a Russian unit(s).

(The western map edge remains as an USS throughout the game.)

To reflect French losses through attrition during the winter months the French player rolls 2xd6, halves the score (fractions rounded down) and removes from play a number of combat units equating to the result. A commander is removed if a one (1) is rolled; two (2) commanders if two (2) ones (1s) are rolled. Foreign contingents must be removed in preference to French or Polish units.

In addition, the French player rolls 1xd6 to ascertain whether Napoleon remains with the Army. A roll of one or two (1 or 2) means that he returns to France permanently and is removed from play; of five or six (5 or 6) that he winters with the Army. A roll of three or four (3 or 4) means that he returns to France, but may re-join the invasion. To determine whether he does so, at the end of each Turn 1xd6 is rolled and a score of five or six (5 or 6) enables Napoleon to be placed upon any friendly stack.

Then the Russians

All disrupted units are returned to good order.

Units may take up positions anywhere on the board subject to being in winter supply [Rule 6.2, final bullet] other than (a) immediately adjacent to a French unit or (b) a city down-stream of any newly established French USS. (Rule 4.1 applies.)

The Russian player rolls 2xd6, halves the score (fractions rounded down) and restores a number of units – command and/or combat - which were removed from play in 1812. These may be deployed in or immediately adjacent to Kiev, Moscow and/or St Petersburg unless the city is occupied by the French. (Rule 4.1 applies.)

In addition, the Russians receive the following reinforcements which may be deployed in or immediately adjacent to Kiev, Moscow and/or St Petersburg unless the city is occupied by the French. (Rule 4.1 applies.)

1AL, Chichagov

3-OS Corps (1Cc)

3-IX Corps (IL),

Cau (2Ic),

Dan (1Ic)



Finally, if not already deployed [Advanced Rule 16.12], and if the city is not occupied by the French, Swedish units arrive at or adjacent to St Petersburg. (Rule 4.1 applies.)
