Picked up the rules and played a couple of solo games and with an opponent today. I would say the advice that three brigades a side will take about 3 hours (an hour per brigade) is a good guide . The cards and turn sequence keep both sides involved - and you can't guarantee anything :-).

A couple of things seem a little odd from what I've understood so far- but are more observations that could be house ruled than serious concerns. eg Heavy Cavalry intimidation seems to have the same effect on a square as troops in other formations. Also a unit that is disordered and with more disruption than stands that is due to break in the end phase can still launch effective charges eg 6 strong professional cuirassier regiment in column of attack gets 6 die (6 bases +2 shock -1 column of attack, -2 disorder, +1 superior quality) hitting on 3's.

I get the feeling large units tend to do better.

Overall I've enjoyed playing so far, and importantly the non napoleonic opposition enjoyed them too.

Nice bit of teasing there Gregor.
Any more about the battles?
