Very nice game and table. I have used Fistful of Lead several times for Old West games. Great, fun rules and certainly one of my go-to sets. This Horse and Musket looks equally great and I will more than likely be purchasing them. Who makes the Rifleman Hagman? I really like that pose with him balancing his rifle on his foot to take the shot.

look great. How do these rules compare to Sharp's Practice by Too Fat Lardies?

Sharpe Practice use "units" of 8 or more figures, and your force will have several of these units, so right away it is a larger scaled game, even if still a "skirmish game". Leaders in SP are there to get your units moving/shooting/recover from morale effects rather than doing heroic killing by themselves.
