Very, very nice looking game. Terrain & figures are great.

I have one gripe: "chutzpah"? What's wrong with "gie’in it laldy! "?

Local variations may include, 'getting tore in', 'gie'n em pelters' and a variety of Gaelic imprecations.

Superb game - I can just hear the "humblies" marching off singing insults to taunt their Hanoverian captives (and showing remarkable prescience, albeit in part because none of their leaders had thought to bring a name that actually scans):
