I've been considering giving the DBN rule set a try, to enable me to fight smaller or solo battles whilst i'm preparing for my larger battles.
However, I didn't want to spend the time and money on buying and painting a load of new figures and bases, if I didn't like the rules - so my solution was simple - I decided to download some paper soldiers and base them up according to the rules, to refight the Battle of Barossa 1811.
You can see the opposing armies on my blog below

Whilst I appreciate this isn't everyone's cup of tea - it is a cheap and effective way to either start a new period or to play a new ruleset without significant investment in money and time.
