> Observations.

> - Game worked well. No real major queries.

> - WWgX did nothing really. Duncan brought them along for extra colour,

> one reflecting AC Milan colours, the other Inter.

> - BwO were capable of dealing with AxO, SpI and BdI reasonably.

> - Dont try and do tricky things with Irreg Kn. Line em up and let them

> go. In hindsight, DuncanB said he should have lined the French up and

> charged forward. After all KnO against I foot is pretty good for the

> Knights.
