Great pictures. Bavarians always look gorgeous in those powder blue uniforms and the shots of their squares chequerboarded across the valley looks magnificent.

Beef did fantastically for his first time in command - far better than I did!

The learning curve is a brutal and bloody one but soon you'll be tossing corps about the map like a true Ney or Soult!

In MP with a player team that has enough players our group likes to have a C-in-C who commands no troops at all if possible, or he can actually take a brigade and use it as a corps reserve (he players the brigade commander but we give him the corps command rank). A brigade of heavy cavalry, grenadiers or guards forms a nice reserve.

With a division that has a player commander we also try to have no more than 1 of its brigades player commanded so that the command friction and weight of responsibility is balanced across the corps. It often happens that the player commanding the division tasks his human-led brigade as his advance guard on the march which then uses the couriers and delayed information system to its fullest and engages every player as equally as its possible.

And, as people discovered yesterday, with Napoleonic divisional artillery concentrated at the divisional level its always wise to keep the division concentrated. An infantry brigade, even two, away on their own will suffer badly vs a combined arms enemy.

Its rewarding to play a game using MP restricted commands and views that can emphasize these things to you. The helicopter view and instant communications would lose all of this tension.
