Black Powder: Seven Years War

Another run out for Black Powder rules using our Seven Years War stuff today.
I fielded Russians against Stephen's Prussians.
We have I think the Seven Years War modifications we use are pretty much honed to how we like things now thereby leaving us to simply fight the battle.
I just could not pass a Break Test today and Stephen was able to save the bulk of any hits I inflicted and I never managed to roll a single 6 in shooting to cause a Disorder (is that even possible !!??).
Still another excellent game with these fast play rules.
They may lack some of the 'nitty gritty' of other sets but they do give plausible outcomes with minimal tweaking and lower complexity rules overhead.
Maybe its a consequence of getting older but simpler seems more fun now than complex ?
