Definitely wait for SP2 for learning the rules, it's quite different in important ways. There are still some good ideas and material in SP1 which you can lift for scenarios later.

If there is the possibility that you might want to use your figures later for bigger battle Napoleonic rules, like General D'Armee, then I would recommend basing your line infantry as singles on 20mm square bases or in pairs on a 40x20mm base and use movement trays rather than sabots. That way you will find it easier to rank them up into the typical 24 figure battalion most of those rules use. You can still use figures on round bases and in sabots for larger games if that is your preferred basing, it's just simpler when they are on squares.

Head to Partizan on Sunday for a few games of SP plus Richard Clark doing a Halland 1940 CoC game.

Sadly I’ll be missing Partizan.
But thanks anyhow.
Turns out one of my club members is an avid SP man, so he’s going to show me the ropes!

Cheers

Where are you based Tim?

Again, we really do need an official “Lardfinder” board here!

I’m in Manchester.
I play my games mostly at Element Games in Stockport.
The few historical gamers I know there are considering a SP event in November, I’ll keep the forum posted.
