A Sudan variant of the Too Fat Lardies' Sharp Practice rules was published in the recent 2021 Lard Magazine and I've been eager to try it out. Having enjoyed Sharp Practice for horse & musket and having tried The Men Who Would Be Kings for the Sudan I was interested to see whether Sharp Practice could deliver a good game with a suitable period feel. I played two games in quick succession, one in 15mm and one in 28mm. To be honest the scale was irrelevant, that was just a matter of circumstance, as the rules work just as well in either. I thought the variant worked very well and I'm keen to play it again. I've written a longer blog post that will give a better impression of how the various games played out which you can find here Sharp Practice in Sudan

A good assessment of these two rule sets Sharpe & TMWWBK. Thanks for posting it.

Yes they do play well. I played through a 15mm test game where 1 stand of 15mm equated to a "figure". Looked like a big battle and played well.
