As enjoyable as it is to do all the painting and terrain making for my AWI project, nothing beats getting it all on the table and playing a game. My regular opponent Dave has created a campaign for Sharp Practice loosely set during the 1776 New York campaign. It takes place over five tables and we played the first game this week. I'm controlling the rebels while Dave takes the British.

Sharp Practice games always unfold with a good narrative and that makes it a lot easier to work it into a game report and I enjoyed putting this together. You can find the full game report here 'I'll Take Manhattan' Scenario 1 The British are Coming!

Interesting scenario design, great kit and a very interesting AAR. Looking forward to seeing whether the Brits take Manhattan!

GREAT looking game!

What did the table measure?

What scale and company were the troops?

GREAT looking game!

Thank you.

What did the table measure?

It was a 6x4.

What scale and company were the troops?

They are 28mm and all the figures are from Perry Miniatures, they are a mix of their plastic box sets and their metal range.
