So W7 would be able to attack L1, L2, L3, S2, P1
This means S, L and P bonuses can be broken by archers and B bonus broken by archers and B bonus by canons.
This would leave H, R & F as safer bonuses. Perhaps we would want one or two (but not all - such is the gameplay beauty of Waterloo) to be bombardable? Perhaps the canons could bombard F as well as B? And maybe an archer on W9 (so he can bombard R but not H). This would leave H as a bonus area safe from archers, which, game-play-wise, would the better of the 3 areas to be safe. Certainly, if F were safe, the gameplay would often revolve around initial battles for that area, as, once held, it would probably stay held.
We would also have less of a feature of the right-hand tower. However, that could have canons (maybe two on each tower that players cant move from - again, a la Waterloo), or, this would be the Wizard's tower (and potential associated +1 or other feature)?
