Now here is a thing. Whilst I have been busy dicing and slicing Bob Cordery's Memoir of Battle 19th century rules to incorporate the earlier smooth bore era I suddenly had a brainwave. I reckon that most of the game system (sans the command cards) used in Command and Colours: Napoleonics could be very simply tweaked into a Memoir-ish set of rules. As a result of this brainwave I shall spend a couple of days seeing if it sticks and if so will try it out with the block armies over the weekend.
Of course if I was tackling a Peninsular based campaign I would just go ahead and use the game blocks but I am not and so I won't - at least not yet in any event!
