I did a "bathtub" refight of Minden, roughly 1/4 scale. And thought I'd share. It was a fun battle but I don't think it felt very much like how I perceive the real battle.

Beautiful looking game!

That looks like a great game, mate. How does C&G handle the difference between SYW and Napoleonic battles?

It's a good question Dal. I own all the C&G rulesets but have only played the SYW version. It's our current default rules for the AWI and I am giving it a go for the SYW. After I finish exploring Minden, I played it again with C&G and am doing it now with Might & Reason (another AAR to follow) I'll be doing Denmark Strait with Sam Mustafa's new rules Nimitz followed by some Franco-Prussian fun using 1871. I may noodle around with C&G FPW afterwards to see how it plays so I can compare two very different periods (SYW vs FPW) with the C&G ruleset.

Thanks, mate, the fact that the SYW and Napoleonic are covered by different modules answers a major part of my question. They must be different in some way or they wouldn't be separate modules.

I'll have to have a closer look at their site.

Thanks again.
