Everything I tryed: installation, menu, tactical and strategic maps & battles.
What does not
What was not tested
Online game, FOTS expansion
On vanilla wine 1.7.13 I had sideways models bug (all characters and soldiers drawed sideways). Solved using wine 1.7.4-CSMT via playonlinux. Performance is really good, the game runs nearly as fast as on windows.

If your game crashes due to awesomium.dll then do the following to get game working again;
Go to the games directory (Steam/steamapps/common/total\ war\ shogun 2/) and rename AwesomiumProcess.exe to AwesomiumProcessOrg.exe
During battles you may encounter a message saying your copy might be counterfeit or that your install is broken. Now this could be because of the FOTS fix mentioned OR there is a problem with how the game knows steam is running.
At first you'll only be able to move your mouse around but if you wait the message goes away and you'll be able to continue the battle as normal.
