More pandemic gaming. This was my first attempt at doing a Sharp Practice game via texting. The scenario was set on Martinique and part of our Sugar Islands campaign of 1759. It would be the 3rd game on that island and I was using the recently posted Encounter with Maroons by Stuart Insch as its basis link

For a full AAR and loads of pictures go to my flickr site: link 15mm minis and Sharp Practice 2 rules.

I've run that one twice now. Its a nice mix of terrain and unit types so really gives a sense of the nature of the campaign. Good luck.

Look super Mark!

I've had Stuart's book(s) ordered for a couple of weeks now (since he posted that free scenario awhile back).

If someone has AWI+ period figs, and Congo-style figs too, this opens up a whole new way to game with them.

That is a great looking game, thank you for sharing. Inspiration indeed for someone coming back to the hobby after a few years break.
