Today, we had a very hard grind playing a Seven Years War game. It was fun, but very close!

I did enjoy, mate. What rules are you using- the initiative/commander ratings looked interesting. I still use Grant's rules, but am also looking for an option to use smaller units.

@ Dal Gavan, the rules are my own, freely available from this link

Herky!!!! you finally won one!!!

Indeed! and I found out why I kept losing! I had worked out an army for Phil and made a mistake in allowing him 100pts too much infantry! I made a rod for my own back!
I still enjoyed the games though!!!
