Napoleon at Dover

As announced earlier on the 10th of Sept. in Heroldsberg near Nuernberg there was a combined land and seabattle with Playmobil.
We played the landing of french troops in england at the beginning of the 19th century, which never actually occured.
We called it "Napoleon at Dover".
Although we´ve been only 12 players we had a lot fun.
Later we will open a page with all the details of the Game with lots of pictures. There we will tell you who won.
Technical Datas:
Area of play Land and sea each about 40 square meters (about 50 square yards)

1  100 gun Ship of the Line
9 Artillery Divisions
14 Cavallery Regiments

Together more than 600 Figures

Here some pics as a start.
