Sharp Practice and more trees!

This week I received my copy of Sharp Practice! I plan to use the rules to make use of my 15mm Napoleonic troops as well as my French and Indian War miniatures.

I also plan to paint up some Swedish 28mm miniatures for the 1809-1809 Russian Finish War.

I did some research while at the Army Museum here in Stockholm to check out some examples of the two types of uniforms that would have been in use during the war.  It looks like the 1802 and 1807 uniform was in use during the war.

The 1807 Uniform

The 1802 Style uniform

I have ordered some of the Perry Norwegian miniatures for the Swedes in the 1802 uniform. For troops in the 1807 uniforms I will use some plastic 28mm Austrians I have for the bodies and I have ordered British Marine heads to add to the Austrian bodies to make them look like the Swedes. We will see how they turn out.

I also made some more trees for the 6mm terrain that we need for Altar of Freedom. I have more trees so I will continue to work on more trees before making rivers.

Have a good day!

  1. Sounds as if you have a good plan and I must admit that I am interested in the rules myself.
