The one game of H&M I played with Doug seemed to go well. We played the simple rules, but it still managed to feel like the period and units. Was even able to use rudimentary combined arms, with cannons firing to soften up units then infantry to beat them up then cavalry to run them down.

Oh yes, its fun to play as long as you accept the abstractions required by the system, and does capture the feel of the periods it depicts. I did play a few games on Vassal with Doug and we always felt that the outcome of the games didn't produce any real ahistorical results.
