Thanks very much guys, we spent 3 1/2 hours playing all told, but stopped to chat a lot, I do mean a lot as well so maybe 3 hours gaming tops to get a convincing result.

Fantastic! Love the Guard Cuirassiers. I converted the same figures and French Dragoons for early line cavalry and Guard Horse Grenadiers.

I guess you have used 28mm figures. Do you think the rules could work in a smaller table (6x4) but using 15mm figures?

Nice game, by the way.

I am planning to use a 6x4 table with these rules for 1812 retreat from Moscow, I will be halving movement due to the snow and using small units so they dont take up lots of space so yes that will work I would simply use centimetres rather than inches for the 15mm and bob is your uncle!

Love that. Would also like to do some scenarios for Sharp Practice.

We use Black Powder for First Carlist War, I plan to us ebothe these and Sharp Practice for Retreat from Moscow, BP becuase it is so flexible and SP as it suits smaller skirmish games games.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try it.

Didn't decide yet. I would like to try Black Powder, but the table requirements made me wonder. I think that Roger's idea could work: just convert inches to centimeters.
