A couple of days ago I got my copy of Sharp practice 2 from Too Fat Lardies. I have really high expectations of these rules as I very much like the Dux Britanniarum rules.
The production value of the book are exellent,120 pages full colour in a softback book. I also opted for the clasic activation card deck of 40 cards in a nice little card box. All very well presented and layouted with lots of images and rule examples, unfortunate some of the miniature pictures was a bit dull in the colour,
Seems like they have tried to streamline the rules very much, so they will be easy to learn and you will be able to memorize the basics quick. They haven´t even included a QRS, something that I really miss. Even if the rules are easy to remember some tables could have been handy in a QRS, but that might come later as a download.
I will tell more about how I think the rules work when I have had a couple of games under my belt. The setting will me Napoleonic with a focus on a re-start of my Finnish War 1808 project.
I even picked up 2 boxes of Warlords new and exellent looking French Hussars in my Salute haul. I will convert the Frenshies in to Russian Hussars.
I was talking a bit about my intention to convert them in to Russians with Guy, editor at Wargames Soldier and Strategy, that also working on Napoleonic Russians. Seems like he was caught by the ideea as he even posted a tutorial of how to convert the horses in to Russian Hussar horses at the WSS blog, thanks Guy, made my work easier:)
