Gents – one more posting for today – this was my third game at Little Wars this year – based on Sharpe's triumph this was the escalade at Ahmednuggur…

I've been working on Wellesley's gentlemen in top hats and a number of highland units for the last few years. The fortress is by Crescent Root. The scenario was based upon the book and information in the companion I referenced in the post.

Still haven't beaten the whole 'how to link Photobucket to TMP' thing yet, but here's the link to my blog:

Great to see, thanks for sharing. I love India as a setting, and the three set in India were my favourite Sharpe novels.

Thanks, since I have a big 15mm collection partly painted for the period, this is huge inspiration!!

I completely agree about the India Sharpe novels being favorites. There is a ton of inspirational history for gamers in those books. The campaign at Seringapatam is on my maybe list as well. The Wellesley night attack might make an interesting game as well.

Great stuff.
