The 'early' gunpowder days. Muskets and Mohawks, Long Rifle, Muskets and Shakos, And a Bottle of Rum and similar era games.
I am looking to use this rule set for The First Italian Waf of Independence, would welcome discussing this with anyone interested, as I believe there is a lot of scope

Not my strong suit but I do not see why not.
If troops were equipped with "modern" mini ball rifled muskets then just use the rifle ranges from the game with the loading process for muskets. I don't think the Austrians replaced smoothbores for line troops until the 1850's although they did upgrade flintlocks to Augustin tube locks. Not sure that would effect game performance.
Tactics would have been similar although give the type of country fought over and developments elsewhere a greater reliance on skirmishers would probably be indicated. As the rules don't really limit skirmishers except in terms of better troops make better skirmishers, it will be a judgement call so far as rating the troops go.
Hope that helps.
