There seem to be quite a few difference tactical/regimental-level Napoleonic wargames. Does anyone have experience with a broad range of these, enough to recommend one (or a series) above others?
I like the play-style of the Great Battles of the American Civil War system, and ideally I'm looking for something similar, but in the Napoleonic era.

Little Round Top – 1600-1700 hours – ‘The devil’s work at The Devil’s Den’
I’ve begun my third scenario of GBACW – Three Days of Gettysburg. This time I’ve stepped it up a little more and am taking on the Little Round Top scenario.
