I tried another one of the Lasalle 2nd Edition scenarios. Read how it went here.

Wow that looked like an excellent battle. You are really selling me on the 2x2 rules. How did you select the forces and how long did the game take in real time?

Thanks for posting. Would also like to know duration of game, start to finish.

Thanks. In terms of game time from first turn to the end of battle both scenarios were in the ball park 2 hours. Actually a bit more but these scenarios worked differently than the normal 2x2 rules and were bigger. In this one for example I had a turn limit only. If I would have played by units eliminated (normal rules) the games would have ended quicker.

I played some standard sized games in an hour, which lends itself well for campaign in a day style games.

The forces were done via the points system which is included. Usually you have armies of 40 pts each. In this one the Austrians fielded something along the lines of 60-70 pts.

I played a game with 120 pts per side once (thats about 40-50 units per side) which is absolutely doable but its a bit of a task solo. I think with 40 pts per player per side and only allowing written orders between players you can play big battles very nicely.
