Battle of Gavere

I just read about the Battle of Gavere (1453) where the rebellious Ghent army was defeated when a panic spread through the ranks like a wave due to a stray spark igniting a stash of powder for their artillery.

My wargamer's mind immediately jumped to similar situations I've seen on the table, and I thought, "Wow, it sucks failing that many panic tests when your light gun rolls a misfire in the first turn."
