An ingeniously simple set of Napoleonic wargames rules by Jervis Johnson, Alan Perry, and Michael Perry.
Valour & Fortitude (V&F) is a set of tabletop wargame rules designed for fighting battles using the Perry Miniatures ranges of plastic and metal figures and bases. It is played by two or more players, divided into two sides. Each side has an army, made up of figures organised into units and leaders. Units and leaders from the armies are formed into brigades that are commanded by the side’s players.
As well as the figures, players will need army sheets, a scenario, dice, tape measures, playing cards and markers. Normal six-sided dice (D6) and a standard pack of 52 playing cards are also required. Markers are used to record the losses and setbacks suffered by an army and can be represented by a small coin or casualty figure.
V&F exists in three formats:
1) Printed rules – these were given away free with Wi418, the October 2022 issue of Wargames Illustrated. Order your copy from our webstore. Wi418 also includes more V&F coverage in the form of Designer’s Notes and scenarios.
2) Downloadable PDF – free to WiPrime Members in the Wi Vault. This is a ‘live’ version of the rules and is updated regularly to include rule corrections and amendments.
2) Printer Friendly PDF – free via the Perry Miniatures website. This is a ‘live’ version of the rules and is updated regularly to include rule corrections and amendments.
You will also find Army Sheets, a Q&A, and scenarios on the Perry Miniatures website.
