Re: Just started playing Sharp Practice

Great minds think alike - the scenarios in those 2 publications translate to SP very well. There were some rule adaptions for the Plains Wars published in one of the Specials some time ago but they were written for SP v.1. I must dig them out and see how they might be updated for the current version...

Re: German Late War Lists

And they wonder why ‘Northern’ wargamers are stereotyped as tightwads. 😕

Re: Franco-Prussian War

The original article was in the 2010 Xmas special. There’s some useful ideas that are readily adaptable to SP2 and 3 small scenarios. I’d be interested to see what you come up with. There’s a much greater variety of unit types available, especially by the time of the siege of Paris, with assorted sa...

Re: Franco-Prussian War

There was an article in one of the early Specials with FPW rules and force lists for SP1, which might be useful but I don’t remember seeing anything for SP2 since then. It shouldn’t be too difficult to come up with some tweaks to reflect the tactics and weaponry of the period - SP is much more about...

Re: Chain of Command East Africa 1940

It’s a campaign that caught my eye as well, but I’ve not got beyond starting to read up on it. Good introduction is “The First Victory” (Stewart) and there’s an extensive bibliography attached to the main Wikipedia article on the campaign.

Re: Stuka/Pre Game Bombardment

Indeed he did , but as Stukas are a variant of the PGB, there remains some doubt whether the two can be used simultaneously , and how this should be handled. Combining them with SNTs and lack of SLs might make for a short and unsatisfying game for the other player but might be justified in a campaig...

Re: Stuka/Pre Game Bombardment

I’m going to have to ask him about this in Sheffield at the weekend - before my third attempt to take Perbais in the Gembloux PSC!

Only question is, how many pints before I pose the question.

Re: Application of shock from firing

What Derek said - so one Group may suffer a lot of Kills and Shock while the one alongside is completely unscathed.
