2 games with them (plus 2 solo games, but I never feel like that counts)

2nd game was Blucher (today). because I have been painting towards a FoG:N OOB, I didn't have enough Austrian artillery or French cavalry. So, when I can be arsed to paint more, that's what will be up next.

Its ok.  Different to most rules because its so high level, so it lacks a lot of things because they aren't needed, such as formations - that sort of thing is the problem of the brigadiers.  Its more about where do you concentrate your efforts, because you have a limited number of activation points, and you don't know how many.

I really like them. You feel like Napoleon or Kuznetsov etc, to me!

But they’re very “chalk or cheese”
And a lot of people don’t get on with them.

I really enjoyed the game (not just because I won  Grin ). Early 19th century isn't usually my favourite period, but I'll certainly play Blucher again.

Sunjester was looking at one end of the field thinking if I attacked there he didn't have enough units to hold me, I was looking at the same situation thinking how much of a slocg it would be and I could easily get routed; I wanted to move there but the 'I don't know how much momentum I have' problem meant that I dare not split my attack in two places.

Its always funny finding out your opponent's view on the game afterwards; ive found sitting on the other side of the table gives you a whole new perspective.

Excellent, glad you both approved Cheesy

“Why didnt you just...” is a great post mortem.

Better than "What you did wrong was..." from someone who won by absurdly good luck.

The people that 'amuse' me are the ones who complain about their poor rolls and your good ones when their poor tactics leave them needing 6s when you only need to roll 4s Wink

Three things lead to my defeat at 19th Century (Any of it, not just the early bit)

1) Sunjester's Lucky Dice (Orcs will confirm; three 6s on 4 dice is taking the piss)
2) My Dice (again, ask Orcs)
3) I always choose the Austrians...

At least with Blucher the French Skirmishers are a lot less effective than in FoG.

Need to paint more artillery, and then more Cavalry for Blucher - What I have is for FoG OOBs.  Going to get the Imperial Guard as well. Next game we'll use the campaign system.
