Not good enough, Ronan. Where is the bar? What beers does it serve? Does it do 'pub food'? We demand a full review!  Waiting Smiley

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Hang on, wasn't he selling all his stuff after losing his Battletech mini's, and rage-quitting to W40k?!

Good choice of rules - have you tried the Scenario System?

Pierre the Shy & I know Keith very well and were both involved in the development/testing of the Scenario System Smiley

The game was based on a double sized Hasty Attack scenario Wink

Well I'm sure that's really interesting, paulr. In the meantime, back to the derailment!

Ronan ..... !?

Ah ha, I did wonder, as I thought you might have been active on the Spearhead list Cheesy Or at least blogs I mentally link to such as they have, errr, Spearhead games on Cheesy

Also, yes, Ronan, excellent. Game was a bit draining then, first to fall over wins Wink

1. FOG

2. Crusaders v. Ayubid Egyptian

3. Beginning to - it has taken a very long time, which I think is a major fault of these rules..

4. Must have been my 15th game or so.

5.Three players - two Ayubid's and one Crusader. I took on the role of Saladin and gave the crusaders a good hiding.

1) What ruleset do you use in your last game? - General d'Armee
 
2) What armies were confronted? - French V Austrians

3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - picked them up relatively quickly. The online tutorials are really helpful as some of the rules sections go on for ever....

4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - yes

5) How many players were in the game? - solo

2300 points per side, five brigades each with four infantry brigades and a cavalry brigade each. Played out in very slow time trying the game for the first time before a club game in a week or so.

The command and control element of the game is excellent and after a few moves most concepts were established and easily rememberable. Played out on a 6x3 table with 10mm minis using movement/firing rates for 15mm which works well, but definately needs to be played on a 6x4 table, preferably 6x5 if you can manage it to give space for manouvre as retreat distances are 30cm....

Plus points
Gives a decent game with a proper napoleonic feel
Most of the game concepts are easily remembered
Command and control phase makes the game
Lots of scope for multiplayer, huge games on club weekends

Negative points
Like all napoleonic games its not a pick up and play game
No army lists - which will put off people new to the game
You will struggle to fight a game to conclusion in three hours - this may change once you really 'know' the ruleset
I need to buy some more minis - particularly artillery and infantry if I want to play much bigger games than 2000 points

That's a very popular set with the big game lovers down the Liverpool club. I've seen CDA battles set up for several weeks there.
