May I suggest changing the UK (or is it French?) unit color to white? Their fleets at Jamaica, Trinidad and New Brunswick are nearly invisible - "stealth" technology 200 years ahead of their time!

Late to the party, but there's no way I'm not signing up for my favorite variant. If there's not room left, put me down to reserve.

Thanks!

It is like waiting for Christmas morning, or for BAR exam results...

Any chance this will slide up to a sooner start date?

The map colors have been partially updated. I'm still working on Britain, but the rest are pretty set for now. If anyone has issues distinguishing units, let me know!

The old school armies with spears are hard to see...please don't use 2 different army styles. I get that it's smaller for smaller locations...but they are hard to see

The pieces aren't finalized--the small armies are placeholders while I make nice matching ones for the big armies. The colors are what I'm working on at the moment.
