After my experiments with 6mm Napoleonics over the weekend I worked up a summary sheet for a simplified Black Powder for big Napoleonic battles and set up a game for Steve, Big Carl & Tony - again based on El Perez from the BP book. Not a big battle yet, but you have to walk before you run.
Steve's Russians v. Carl & Tony's French
The French garrison eventually ran out of hot dice and broke leaving the escape route clear, but it was too late. The Russians only got about 1/4 of their army away & the French won a good vctory.
The modified Black Powder system worked really well & can only improve with more work & testing. The players enjoyed it and it was a breeze to umpire. The simplifications make the game easier to remember and quicker to play, but I think still retains enough tactical options. Borodino 2012 here we come.
