Black Powder rule test SYW
Quick test of Black Powder rules using my Seven Year War Russians against Stephens Prussians.
Quick terrain set-up from Warfare in Age Of Reason set and Points Costed armies (around 1370pts each)
Not played to completion.
Some nice systems in the rules and they play fast and flow well (can see ideas from Field Of Battle, Warmaster) but a major howler we felt was being able to move up to enemy and then shoot them to bits without them having a chance to reply !
So we changed sequence of play to have Shooting first.
Only other concern was that Charges seem overly desirable but easy fix to disallow versus Steady Inf or similar.
