I have decided to launch into a project I have wanted to do for years and that is the Battle of the Alamo. I wish to use Sharp practice and I am thinking 1/5 scaling for the men but my problems lies in how to scale the cannon? I'm thinking I will make the Alamo itself about 1/4 of its size and make the victory target for the Texians to inflict 1/4 casualties on the Mexicans before they are wiped out.
Any suggestions or advice?

If I recall correctly, about a week ago Rich was musing on the TFL Yahoo mailing list about more formally scaling up SP2, though whether that would be a special or just a download I'm not sure. That may help, though maybe not in a one-off like this.

You can always just imagine it's a bigger action as you are planning, but then you run into problems like you describe. Maybe reduce every location where there were multiple guns down to one and also give some other penalty (they were under-crewed IIRC) to reduce their effectiveness vs. a smaller attacking force.
