|Mamluks coming to a table this winter.|
Sharp Practice 2 is very different animal to the original rule set, far slicker in game play and player experience, it introduces a points based system that brings a degree of uniformity to the table top and an element of pre-battle planning as you decide what to spend your support points on, really useful if you play the same opponent regularly and want to shock them every now and again with a fresh new unit.
I also have the added challange of painting the unit in the same style of the original and matching the colours when I never wrote down the exact paints for each unit.
The Egyptian Ottoman's are probably best broken down into 4 distinct factions when opposing the French each in my opinion giving a very different gaming experience.
Ottoman - Nile Forces
Ottoman New Order Army
Mamluk Cavalry and followers
The plan for the winter is to work through each of them back filling and bringing units up to strength as well as completing the French.
The first core force should be leaving the paint table tonight...
