Sharp's Practice - Spain 1809


I have never really been one to play skirmish style gaming however I do believe I have taken a liking to Sharp's Practice. After watching a couple of tutorials on the good old Youtube and a quick read of the rules we put together a very basic game just to get the mechanics and feel for the game. We were all very surprise to know that the rules played very well and we quite fun. No arguments just laughter for most of the afternoon. I would thoroughly recommend the system to anymore not too serious about winning and just looking for a fun afternoon with the lads. Thanks John for the figures and terrain.

Fantastic looking game!! We played our first game of sharp Practice yesterday and like you had a rip roaring good time, but then again we were not too surprised as we love Chain of Command and also Dux B. from the Lardies rules. Great stuff!

Beautiful looking figures and game. If I may ask, what figures were you using for your British regulars and rifles?

Wonderful looking game there! Love the terrain as well as the miniatures. As Chris said above we just had our first game yesterday and were enjoying ourselves immensely. Haven‘t laughed as much for a while. Am now thinking about introducing the random events into our games of CoC.

Great-looking figures and terrain. I have Sharp Practice 2 sitting on the shelf and this has inspired me to get stuck into it sometime soon.

Great looking game - figures and terrain are top notch. Sharp Practice seem to be the rules of the moment - I see reference to them on many blogs at the moment!

Great looking game. I also have these rules sat on a shelf awaiting the AWI figures to get to the top of my lead pile.

To the gent asking about his British figures, the line look to be a mix of Victrix and Elite while the Rifles look like Front Rank to me.

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for the great comments and glad to hear the post has inspired others to give the rules a go. They are certainly good fun. I watch a couple of tutorials on YouTube first and then dived straight into the rules. The French figures and the 95th Rifles are all Front Rank Miniatures, but I am unsure of the British line figures. They are a mix of plastic and metal.

Thanks again everyone

Regards

Vinnie

Utterly gorgeous mate! Where are the stone walls from? They are beautiful.

Hi Michael,

I believe the stone walls are from Grand Manner.
