A Little Potty?
In a spirit of seasonal bonhomie, I felt I would share with you this picture of an interesting novelty from the time of the Napoleonic Wars. Yes, it is a chamber pot, and, yes, that is His Majesty the Emperor of the French depicted inside.
Yet again the English flair for combining practicality with good taste is in evidence. Antique collectors and scatophiles the world over, please take note.
Something which might be less obviously useful, but which I was asked for, is a readable summary of my proposed additions to Commands & Colors: Napoleonics (CCN) for a Grand Tactical variant (which I have called GTCCN for the moment). The idea is that this gives a couple of extra sheets which can be clipped to the original CCN Rule Booklet.
