BTW, I did pick it up. It looks like a pretty good game. Similar game mechanics to Gentlemen Generals, another game Crooked Head makes. Add and subtract dice for shooting. 1 die per 2 men. Roll them trying to get 5's and 6's usually. You can score up to 3 casualties. Morale is built into the combat system. 2 hits will disorder a unit. 3 hits will cause a unit to fall back. Disorder prevents a unit from moving and make the chance to hit only a 6. Melee works in a similar fashion. The difference is 1 die per man.

There is a command system. If a commander does not roll his command rating or more, all units within 18" of him are out of command. Each one tests to see if it can move and fails on a 1.

The game is along the scale and scope of Brother Against Brother. 10 man units. Each unit is essentially a "company".
