Re: 28mm Civilians/Characters for SP2 Peninsular War

Thanks for the prompt responses, Gents.
Perry and Front Rank suggestions look useful and on order as I write.
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...

Re: Sharp Practice - Rescue at Cedillo

That looks and reads like an exciting game, so much so we are planning to run that same scenario with your AAR as a basis this Friday at the club. I will address the omission you mentioned by having a minor character and his unit performing the guard duties. Will the rescuing force commander be able...

Latest SP2 AWI Beasts of War Video

Also posted in General Discussion board. Superb video production (as always). A couple of obvious nuances passed over in the heat of the moment, but there was a few things that challenged my understanding of the rules. 1. When a leader is down the chance to recover is on the next activation of that ...

Re: New Beasts of war Sharp Practice Video

Superb video production (as always). A couple of obvious nuances passed over in the heat of the moment, but there was a few things that challenged my understanding of the rules. 1. When a leader is down the chance to recover is on the next activation of that leader (Table 12 p48) or the chapter end....

Re: Artillery in SP2

Thank you gentlemen I had a feeling I'd seen something like that but on the night couldn't see the woods for the trees as is often the case when under game pressure. Further to Artillery I do believe there is a typo on the French Peninsular lists showing crashing volley and step out characteristics ...

Artillery in SP2

Good afternoon all. We enjoyed another SP2 game last night using a light artillery piece for the first time in a scenario. Set in the Peninsular circa 1813 the British were attacking over a fordable stream, the French had a light gun covering one of the possible crossing points. We gave it a small e...

Re: "Stacking" Crashing Volley & other orders

In Captain Reid's reply I see something I don't understand.
I thought Crashing Volley and Step Out were applied by playing the respective numbers of command cards along with that leaders activation.
The good captain seems to suggest they can be applied without Leader activation.
