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.

Well, as a group the Atlantic Gaming Commission survived Little Wars. In total members of our group ran eight games at the convention, and no one died. Although there were some close calls. We will probably run a repeat performance next year, but we are seriously thinking of running nothing but Black Powder just to see how it goes. Should be fun, I think.
