I have owned a copy of Sam Mustafa’s “Blücher” rules for five days and already started to bugger about with them. Not because there is anything wrong with the rules, but I wanted to see if I could adapt them to my normal hexagon-based playing tables in 2mm and 6mm.
I am pleased to say that very little adaptation is needed. As a first test I tried the rules with a scenario from Commands & Colors Napoleonics and the here is the result.
I made a few cock-ups in interpreting the rules, but I have to say that was my own fault. These are probably the clearest, best laid out set of rules that I have ever read.

I’ve been looking for something in a hex terrain system, for me, 10mm (GHQ) to play Napoleonic type games with. This looks the business, and appears good for scale etc. Thanks!
Having done a playtest with the C&C equipment I will be rransferring to my hex terrain and miniatures. I wondered whether to use the rules as they stand, ignoring the hexagon grid, but in fact very few adjustments were needed. Further reading indicates that the rules for attacks on urban areas may be a bit tricky to adapt.
