Re: Napoleonic Royal Marines

Thank you Baron, that was the confirmation I needed. Can't argue with Don Troiani's research.
All the best.

Napoleonic Royal Marines

Hi All. Just prepping up some Perry Royal Marines for Sharp Practice and I wondered if anyone knows whether the drummer from the command pack would have a red coat or reversed facings. Internet searches have not proved conclusive and image searches for painted models leave me erring on the side of r...

SP2 Hit Allocation and Saving Roll Situation

Last week a club game of SP2 threw up an interesting situation that prompted some (amicable) discussion. Imagine a walled farm yard with chest high walls facing South and West. The defenders were a French group of 8 Line (#1) and a voltiguer skirmish group(#2) of 6 figures facing South. There was a ...

Re: Leaders and excess shock in a formation

Page 34 - there it is - thank you JimLeCat. I thought I had spotted it somewhere. I have updated the index page references with that additional p34.
Thanks again.

Allocation of firing hits

Hi again. During last nights SP2 game an interesting comment arose during a musketry exchange. As the umpire I applied the firing and target hit allocations as per the rules but one of the players pointed out an apparent oddity in the rules. We had a two group British formation firing at a two group...

Leaders and excess shock in a formation

Hi to you all. Imagine a formation of three groups with a leader who is attached to the centre group. If, say, the right hand group accumulates excess shock do I count in the leader as one of the men or only count him for the group he is attached to? (I realise there is some debate about whether we ...

Thanks for the prompt responses, Gents.

Thanks again.

28mm Civilians/Characters for SP2 Peninsular War

Having seen several photos of demo games I wondered where to get civilian and non military characters suitable for the Peninsular War period. I seen and purchased some Redoubt Miniatures figures which gives me some European "Damsels in Distress" and some Gentlemen in frock coats etc but where to fin...

Re: Sharp Practice - Rescue at Cedillo

Thank you for the kind remarks, Captain. In fact if we both did another re-run using the same orbats and start conditions I'll bet the outcomes would be different again. I find that due to the card draw randomness that an otherwise identical game can go in a completely different direction once the f...

Re: Sharp Practice - Rescue at Cedillo

Rescue at Cedillo – Rerun 13 Jul 18 by Staines Wargamers: The terrain layout, forces and command structure were the same as those used by Captain Fortier in his original AAR. Deployment points also as per original AAR. British Leaders all named after characters in Sharpe Novels. The British commande...
