Description Edit | History

Lasalle is a game for two or more players, and is the first game in the HONOUR series. Players take the role of a brigade or division commander in the Napoleonic Wars.

The game is small-scale and tactical in nature, focusing on the movement of individual battalions and regiments of cavalry. The player will manage a small force of roughly a dozen units as he tries to complete some specific mission assigned to him, such as “Hold the village and our bridgehead at all costs!” or: “Drive the French from Plancenoit!”

From the publisher's website:

Lasalle is ideal for a small gaming table, and it plays in real-time with most battles lasting 2-3 hours. It is perfect for pick-up games or tournament play. It therefore includes sample army lists enabling players to collect and paint typical small forces from a large number of possible nationalities.

If you have a club, or a larger collection and gaming area, Lasalle can also be used to simulate historical battles of the Napoleonic Wars, such as Quatre Bras, Albuera, Saalfeld, or Eggmühl. In these cases, multiple players with multiple forces and a larger table will allow your group to simulate the excitement of a significant battle.

More Information Edit | History

(from the back of the book:)

Take the role of a corps or divisional commander in the Napoleonic Wars. Your orders have just arrived: you will clear the enemy from the village to your front and hold the crossroads against this inevitable counterattack. In the next two hours, the fate of an empire may be decided on this half a mile of ground.

Form your battalions in attack columns, concentrate your howitzers on the enemy-held buildings, deploy more light infantry to thicken the skirmish line, order up the light cavalry to prevent any nasty surprises on your flank.

Are you a good enough tactician, with this small force, to carry the day?

3 Wheeling by Angles
An easy way to make wheeling maneuvers in Lasalle is to use angles. With angles, the BW is not important because it doesn’t matter if you use 1” or 4” BW, the angle is still the same. Also, there is no need to make special gauges since you can use a simple protractor to do the job.
