Shock Markers for Sharp Practice 2
But then Perry Miniatures started to make plastic sets. And even though I've never earned a lot of money, I began to make the odd purchase here and there. Dangerous, as I did so without an army list, let alone rule set to use to temper my purchasing. Then along came Sharp Practice and the wonderful Compleat Fondler. Trouble was, it looked like I needed a couple of hundred miniatures to play the scenarios in the book. And I clearly don't have that many miniatures. Plus, none of the miniatures I did own were even made. I was worried about basing them incorrectly. So little happened.
Then TooFatLardies released Sharp Practice 2. This was at probably the lowest point of income I have ever had the privilege to earn. But this edition made putting together your force a lot easier and required fewer models as well. I was sold. But I had to wait a long time until I could afford to buy the PDF.
But boy was the wait worth it!
And now, with a load of figures purchased and ready to go, I'm slowly enjoying putting together my forces. And this includes Shock Markers.
Now, Perry Miniatures make some lovely casualty figures, but if like me you have some of their French Cavalry boxed sets, you'll realise that the horse frames come with a French and British Infantry casualty on them. And whilst that would be great for adding to their bases, I thought it would be great to use these to adorn my shock markers!
I should add that I'm going to be gaming in the Spanish Ulcer. As most of Perry's plastics are designed for gaming the Hundred Days campaign, the French Infantryman casualty has the wrong uniform on for my chosen period. Not to be beaten, I've purchased a pack of casualties from Perry Miniatures to solve this problem.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
