I've been pondering 1812 using Sharp Practice, which I recently purchased, and was wondering about the 1812 supplement from Too Fat Lardies. I posted on their forum as well, but can anyone say what scenarios are included? I'm particularly interested in Mackinac Island and the upper Great Lakes, which would include the 41st Regt that is mentioned.

Figure choice would likely be Knuckleduster, but I haven't started considering which just yet!

The scenarios are:

Queenston Heights
Frenchtown or the River Raisin
Fort Meigs
Battle of the Thames
St. Lawrence River (a scenario set around a cross-river raid)
Attack on Fort Erie (Drummond's attack.

Thanks for that! Much appreciated. That is a good assortment. More to think about for sure!

Been available for a while:-

At £7.50 GBP for the pdf there's not really much to ponder.

Episode 200 of the Meeples and Miniatures podcast covers the publication with the author:-

Hope that helps.

Re: Knuckleduster and choosing figures for units; KD has a PDF that lists nearly all of the War of 1812 units and the associated KD figure codes to make up a unit.

Yes, the supplement was centred on the exploits of the 41st Foot, the favourite unit of creator Mike Hobbs. Mike put a heap of work into it and it's all good fun. The nice thing about Sharp Practice is that you can add your own twists and turns tailored to a specific scenario.
