Overall, the rules play very well for a tactical Napoleonic game. In our particular scenario there were about three divisions (six brigades) on each side and we got about seven turns in a three hour game. I think the rules are very realistic in the game results. They definitely favor a player who tries to use combined arms and deploys lines, columns and elite companies in the proper manner.
Here are some photos of the game and troops.
