Hi Guys
I recently played a game of SP2 and it was as usual a lot of fun.
You can read all about it here:

Post game I took the opportunity to create some 'House Rules' pertaining to Artillery Duels.
Comments welcomed.

Cheers

Looks like a fun addition to the rules.

Glad you are having fun with Sharp Practice, I particularly liked to see the Thin Red Line do their stuff!

Very nice game and inspiring report and pics.
We are starting playing SP2 and we like it very much.
BTW I have seen that an additional leader 3 has been added.
I wonder how much is the cost in terms of points of such an addition because I am unable to find any mention of it in the rules.
Thanks in advance for any reply.

Hi Marco – it's hard to spot, but it's on the generic supports table on p.80, 3 points per level of the leader. So the Leader 3 you mentioned would cost 9 points.

Yes, there are two sources of support for Sharp Practice. Firstly you have the Army Rosters which are specific to your force, so if you have 1812 French as an army this will cover all the troop types available at that period with their point costs.

Secondly, you have the generic support table. That is for stuff available to all armies. So that could be Leaders, Doctors, ammunition wagons and so on. Leaders are generic, so they are costed in there at three points per Status Level, so a Status 3 leader is indeed nine points.

Thank you very much guys. Your help is much appreciated. Especially considering that we are going to increase the number of troops on our battlefield.

Trailape, the link only takes me to a picture. Can you post your artillery house rules here? Or you can send them to me at Burker1 (at) aol (dot) com. Thanks.

Took a long time for website to load but I can see your artillery house rules now.

Anyhow, here is the Link again:

The release of a War of 1812 supplement has sparked my interest in Sharp Practice.

Here is the House rule:
When your Gun fires ROUNDSHOT at another artillery piece (Not ROCKETS or their Launcher) role to convert 'KILLS' to strikes on the actual piece:
