The rules read well and are useable for lots of miniatures from across the ranges… I personally love the special rule on page 104; Dutch Courage: A shot of hard liquor can often instil within a warrior a greater sense of courage.  A unit with the Dutch Courage special rule re-rolls failed D10 Confidence Test Rolls.
