    Please see here for an AAR of a refight of the 1805 Battle of Caldiero using the Horse, Foot and Guns rules, Baccus 6mm figures and a scenario modified from one published in Michael Hopper’s Rise of Eagles 1805 scenario book.

    Thanks for the report. How  long did your game take (in real time) to play?

    Thanks very much.  I can’t remember now exactly how long it took, but around 90-100 minutes.

    That is a pretty quick game!  Looked like the French had little options but a brutal frontal assault for most of the battle.  Always nice to see the Italians in a battle.

    I notice your guns were in front of your foot.  When HFG was still being actively developed by Barker, I was involved somewhat in the playtesting, before I threw the towel in.  Do the rules still allow artillery stands behind foot units to support the four stands in front of them, which I believe was to represent large or  divisional batteries being parceled out to bolster brigades and regiments.  Are there army lists in HFG now?

    Just idle curiosity.  It does seem like an ideal set of rules for you, or any solo gamer with limited space!
