Gearing up for the 200th

Years ago I started working on War of 1812 stuff in 25mm, mostly Wargames Foundry figures and eventually some Old Glory as they became available.  Rules were always the issue.  A couple of years ago I stumbled on Too Fat Lardies "Sharpe Practice" which seemed to reignite things.  Then, interest waned again, probably as I wanted to play slightly larger actions than SP catered for, although I do think its a brilliant set of rules for the War of 1812.

With the arrival of Black Powder in my life, I am back into the 1812 mode, even larger battles like Lundy's Lane are very managable and I love the game system.  I'm currently getting things together for refights of the opening actions. I'll keep you posted.
