For Sale - Empires, Eagles and Lions








What a brilliant is that front cover!


We have a few doubles of Empires, Eagles and Lions for sale.  These are one of my favourite Napoleonic resources and I remember salivating over every new issue in days gone by and being fascinated by the level of research uncovered by generally a group of amateur historians.


In fact some of the findings from this fine group of New Jersey Wargamers helped revisit some historical inaccuracies, especially around the Battle of Maida.









The wonderful collection of line drawings from Mike Gilbert, especially in wonderfully telling the tales of their "Friday Night at the Fights"  as the propaganda arm of various fighting forces.


These are all for sale at AUD150 plus postage or at AUD8.00 an individual issue plus postage. I believe they sell on EBay for anywhere between USD12.00- 20.00.


The following issues are available:


63-67 inclusive
74-91 inclusive
93, 94, 96, 97, 98
100, 101, 102, 104, 105,110
Total of 33 ISSUES




Drop me a line (carlopagano@bigpond.com) and let me know if you are keen.  Believe me, they are great fun and full of fascinating and obscure Napoleonic units, histories and tactical discussion...and those illustrations.  Simply superb.

    1. Absolutely Jonathon. I really still am determined to have the Austrian White Menace sculpted for me on horseback resplendent in bicorne, staff sash and bed sheet!
