it, since it's such a set piece, but is light on detailed numbers and some of the account doesn't match well with his maps. I bought the hefty Road to Rivoli by Martin Boycott-Brown, but that adds little, and contradicts more. There are some OOB on the web, but most miss out any mention of guns - and this was also in the day of battalion guns. Timings are also all askew. I found the Grand Manoeuvre scenario, but the provenance of some of the assumptions was unclear (only 4 bn in Massena's Corps which others put at 10,000 strong?), and the holy grail appears to be Bernhard Voykowitsch's book

I'm just putting the finishing touches to the deployment and scenario (timings? victory conditions?) but battle will hopefully commence before the week is out.
By request here's a link to my scenario and OOB - take it as you find it! http://www.converj.com/docs/wargaming/scenarios/Castiglione%20Scenario%201796.pdf
