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 ...

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.

Re: Uncontrolled fire

As an additional point when a formation is firing uncontrolled volleys, can it be made to fire a Crashing Volley by the allocation of the appropriate number of command cards? or is a crashing volley deemed to be a deliberate and arguably disciplined firing action?

Re: Leader casualty in a formation query

Hi John, that makes it clear now, I had thought that that was the correct interpretation but nice to see it confirmed.

Leader casualty in a formation query

Hi guys, I'm umpiring my first SharpPractice game (as opposed to playing) on Friday and running through the scenario on paper to make sure I had a good enough grasp I came up with the following situation. There is a leader commanding two infantry groups in formation. He is placed bang in the middle ...

SP2 Force Lists

Hi there, I'm looking at particularly the AWI force lists from the rule book and I feel that there may be some typos or copy and paste errors. I suspect others may have noticed these too. 1. British Regulars 1778 on - should they have 'Thin Red Line' characteristic? 2. Rebel Militia to 1777 - Should...
