I am thrilled about playing this game. Like many of you, I would like to see an expansion featuring the Austrians and Russians sooner rather than later. I am fine with the next expansion being one which allows you to get extra pieces and for grander battles without having to buy the whole set again but afterwards I'd like Austerlitz. What I have my fingers crossed for is an expansion which comes like the bas game: 100 Austrians / 100 Russians, respective cards and componenets, some terrain boards with water (for the Lake Satschan event of Austerlitz). Then do the expansion that creates elite units which includes elites for all four of these nations, five if they do Prussians first. Adding these other nations first will make for better multi-player games too.

PS: For those wondering what I meant by Lake Satschan, here is a quote from Baron de Marbot who was at Austerlitz, "chiefly Russians, sought to pass over the ice. It was very thick, and five or six thousand men, keeping some kind of order, had reached the middle of the Satschan lake, when Napoleon, calling up the artillery of his guard, gave the order to fire on the ice. It broke at countless points, and a mighty cracking was heard. 'The water, oozing through the fissures, soon covered the floes, and we saw thousands of Russians, with their horses, guns, and wagons, slowly settle down into the depths. It was a horribly majestic spectacle which I shall never forget. In an instant the surface of the lake was covered with everything that could swim. Men and horses struggled in the water amongst the floes. Somea very small numbersucceeded in saving themselves by the help of poles and ropes, which our soldiers reached to them from the shore, but the greater part were drowned."
