Thank you, Marshall. I appreciate your hard work and candor.
I, for one, thought that the unit appearance that we were seeing in earlier screenshots was ... umm, shall we say ... "unworthy" of the design effort. As a Napoleonic-era game, style should be one of the foremost considerations in graphic presentation. The uniforms, the colors, and the other trappings of war were much of what brought glory to those times (of course, the horrible slaughter was the underlying reality).
Put my faith in the people
And the people let me down.
So, I turned the other way,
And I carry on anyhow.
