So, I bought Rise of Prussia on the cheap in the sale over Christmas. Played the Saxony scenario (a lot), looked at the longer stuff and thought 'its all rather different', read the excellent AARs that have just started to appear ... and decided to take the plunge.
In this case not just into playing the full 1756-62 scenario but do it as a sort of 'learn as you go AAR'. All (ie all 2) existing ones are from the Prussian viewpoint, which makes sense as its Prussia that makes the pace etc, so, to be wee bit different, here's one from the Austrian side of the fence.
For set up, I've put it on hard, attrition etc as historical, given the AI more time, and using the latest beta. So the AI is pretty well pumped and me ... pretty whimpish.
The style will be game play.
 - check out Iain Wilson's excellent Frog in a Well for the inspiration to trying this particular approach.
This final post has some overall reflections on this fascinating game. Can't recommend it highly enoigh.
