Since we've started using Piquet's system we've run and finished 4 campaigns - one of which we ran over a convention weekend
(edited to insert touchstone to book just added)
The other advantage of the TOW system that Donogh forgot to mention was that it places a cap on the number of figures that you have to paint, which is a mercy.
Better get back to painting the figs for the Kursk campaign game.

We do something similar to your Franco-Prussian campaign experience. Play campaign turn and create battlefield and deployment in week 1; Play battle in week 3; play next campaign turn week 5. We're fairly flexible on that but basically it means that we don't overload people with sessions and yet we keep the pace up. It works out at a battle a month, so as you'd know from Theatre of War we'd expect the campaign to last 3-5 battles.
The main advantage is the lack of paperwork, and the lack of any work to be done in between campaign sessions. The fact that you can get the campaign turn done and a battle generated in 1-2 hours helps too
Years ago (pre marriage and kids) I ran a WRG7th edition campaign with very simplified troop maintenance and supply rules. I had a number of players who otherwise had never touched WRG7th and had to be prepared to do a lot of the work myself (eg - It's maintenance time, if you aren't able to re-work your list in time for the next turn here is an example I've prepared).
That campaign ran for an amazingly long time.
That's impressive whatever system/setup you're using! Do you blog the campaign write-ups or do you just e-mail them out (I love reading other people's campaign stories)
I email out the whole campaign write up with the cities on the map re-coloured to indicate territory changing hands, and I put a breifer synopis up on the Fanaticus Website.
A. - my full battle reports don't usually mention the dice and sometimes I lift them into Fanaticus as well - the Trojan War campaign from two years ago had a heap of my battles reported, after all if you are winning with the Early Libyan - who wouldn't crow about it :)
