Making a first foray into the 45 rising in Sharp Practice shortly, so thought I might share the figures ready so far on my blog, lots of pictures and a little narrative here ; link

They look really nice!

I have a large collection of Front Rank figures for this period…looks like I will be starting yet another project!

Excellent work! I've never played these rules though. Let us know how well they work.

First game report is in drafts now so with you next week. I think it can work really well but we got it very wrong first time.

Great! I'm a big fan of the 1745 rebellion as a wargame setting -- hundreds of figures in my collection. The problem is finding people who want to play! It's pretty obscure in the US. And fantasy gaming dominates where I live now. I've been playing with a variant on The Sword & the Flame rules that I designed myself -- this works very well for this period and this level of battle.

Watch this space piper909.Sharp Practice will I feel work well, just need to get the balance right. In this first encounter we definately didnt.

I crafted a variant for the Jacobite rebellions using The Sword & the Flame as a base set -- I've played it for years and it flows very well. "The Sword in the Heather".

Interesting piper909 one for the back pocket if Sharp Practice doesnt work out. I do like Sword and Flame.

Sure. PM me and let me know an email address where I can send an attachment(s) sometime if you'd like a copy of my rules (PDF format), a short set just enumerating the necessary changes from TS&TF, unit organization, and a set of reference charts (based on the TS&TF Colonial originals).

What I need to do now is contact Lori Broom / Sergeants 3 and see about getting these published as an authorized variant. My next year's project now that I've house moved!
