I have play an odd but interesting version of these rules with someone using 40k figures and did like them.

What I would like to know is that if they cater for Austrian and Italian forces as these are the figures I have.

Does it operate in a similar style to Sharpe practice in that different nations have different traits? Or could I make do with using German and French stats.

There is a supplement for the Austro-Hungarians that is in Rich's hands that gives a good overview of their forces and what they would look like.

Wargames Illustrated gave a stab at it and offered up a Battle of Caporetto article here:

It should provide a good starting point.

It is utterly doable. Remember that the "stats" as you call them aren't set in stone – they are just Rich's suggestions for historically accurate play using the various forces on the Western Front.

Do a little research into the Italian Front – OBs, tactics etc, and pick your cards. Set up your troops in historical (or just plain fun) formations and have at it!
