All in all it was a great fun game and a fantastic first use of my wargames room.
Rules wise I felt once we were into it the rules worked excellently. For me the volley firing from the lines disrupting the squares had great period feel, but were not a guaranteed success, so led to fun drama.
With hindsight there were a few details we managed to get wrong but nothing that would of changed the game to much. Also I managed to pull off a win and a rather meek chilli....
A testament to a good game is it enthuses you, John has since painted a battalion gun and is working on his rocket troop and I have bit the bullet and started ordering in my white horde of Austrians!
