Great looking game. I did 1866 in 10mm & I still wonder how much better it would look in 15mm.

Crikey that's an interesting contraption the Austrians have on a tripod, what is it ?

Outstanding blog presentation! Really like the animated maps, binocular-view image, and the newspaper-style Journal page.

@ Ramming, it's a rocket prototype, but I do not know if their number was really important, in any case their effectiveness was questioned …at least on our table!
@ Dave, many thanks for your kind words sir, you make me blush!

Ah interesting. The rocket launcher in 1866 was actually like a surveyor's theodolite, the Hale's rocket (short, no stick) was inserted, the fuze lit, first the rocket began to spin in the launcher, then the main propellant kicked in and whoosh.
