The Adventures of Claude Canard - A Sharp Practice Campaign
6 months of the year gone and very few distractions so far (ok so a few figures for Planet of the Apes), time to turn my attention to the Napoleon in Egypt Project.
I get more done with a target to aim for, so with that in mind thought I would kick off a number of linked games using the Too Fat Lardies excellent Sharp Practice Rules.
I recently picked up the supplement from the TFL's The Compleat Fondler a series of 18 linked scenario's based on and inspired by the Sharpe Series, they are a cracking read and full of great scenario's to play through, however lacking the suitable figures and terrain I thought I would "reimagine" the scenario's for the French in Egypt.
I give you the Adventures of Ensign Claude Canard and his Friend and mentor Ensign Côtelettes de Mouton of the French Sloop "Le Vendeen" a paradogy of all things Sharpe and Hornblower.
