WorLard Sharp Practice Practice II

Tonight we played the second test of our Beau Geste based game, which as it turned out was ore akin to Beau Jest if my dice rolling was anything to go by! The game is set up for the WorLard Day at the Durham club and we'll be using Sharp Practice by the Lardies. It will be interesting to see what we can glean in terms of how Sharp Practice has been streamlined by their play testers as it's a system that, along with The Men Who Would Be King, I predict will be used a lot at the club.

The following pics were taken throughout the second test game.....

Lonely Sentry On the Lookout:


Caravan Train protected by a platoon of Legionnaires enters the table and starts making it's way towards the fort:


What's this? Tuaregs suddenly adorn the ridge line! And there's loads of 'em heading for the camel train!


Platoon of Legionaires stand their ground and let off two volleys that see one one the leading groups of Tuaregs off nicely.



The Legionaires protecting the Caravan are getting overwhelmed so out come the Chasseurs d'Afrique to offer much needed support!


My poor Legionaires about to be overwhelmed:


Yep, that's what you call "overwhelmed"!!


Chasseurs d'Afrique fan out and charge the Tuaregs carrying two groups away as they hit them in perfect order.



The 'Donkey Brigade' (TM) are also ordered out in support of the Chasseurs d'Afrique!


Ouch!


Chasseurs d'Afrique re-group:


The Fort, too ice not to have another piccie!


Stoic (ie well protected!) Legionaires!


To be continued.....

  1. Cool looking game! I'm interested in the game mechanics. I'm a die hard TSATF player but enjoy to read and learn other sets.
