Last weekend we got together to help my friend Robert (left) play test a new set of Napoleonic rules he's been working on. The rules use the same basing system as our current favorite 15mm Napoleonic rules, Volley & Bayonet. This makes trying out Robert's rules very easy. In addition to Robert, Ralph hosted and Charlie also showed up to help out. We did some what-if test combats then played a small two on two game.
All in all Robert's on the right track. His system has some very nice things going for it and there seems to be a workable system here with some small adjustments. Spending the game kibitzing and playing a small game was just the thing for a cold New England weekend.
