This edition is really good value. It has the old style pieces, but the bases of these are very small so infantry is a bit too easy to knock over with any vibration or movement of the table.
it comes with no objectives cards (this can be solved by using a normal set of cards and a list of objectives pulled from wikipedia) and the reinforcement system has changed from the traditional 1993 3 infantry, 3 cavalry 3 cannons or one of each into a points-stars system that changes the dynamic of the game somewhat.
If you can deal with using a regular deck of cards and a list and the new reinforcement system (which is not too bad) then this game is for you. If not stick with some of the classic editions.
The quality is nice and the build is good but not too fancy, but we've used it so much that it's definitely one of the best buys of 2011-2012.
