I thought some may be interested in a scenario I wrote recently for the Combat at Sabugal in eastern Portugal in 1811. It was an unusual encounter in that it took place in the rain and fog and the Allied Light Division actually arrived at the wrong place on the battlefield and for the first hour fought completely unsupported. At the same time the defending French, an entire Corps under Reynier, didn't exactly know what was going on.
For the refereed version (I wrote two, but the refereed version is better) I placed a hex grid on the map for hidden movement until spotted with changing weather conditions and visibility diced for turn by turn. It was an interesting challenge to try to make a rule set (in this case Over the Hills) reflect an unconventional battle. For added tension I introduced a picket that had to return to activate the French troops.
Anyhow, if anyone is interested in seeing the scenario it is available a a download here.

I also posted a battle report here for our test play of the game.
