Another vote for Triumph of the Will.  As mentioned they really do need to be given a second edition with proof reading and clarifications but if you are prepared to overlook that they have some lovely mechanisms and play well once you got into the thought processes used. Some of the mechanisms are slightly counter intuative which I know puts off some of my gamer chums ( roll lower than the number of figures firing to score a hit modified by the quality of the target rather than the quality of the firer) really clever but takes some getting your head around. Also designed for other itner war conflicts so good for your Tsuba Friekorps.

A number of battles using these on my blog, example below:

I love the Lary rules as do most (but not all) of my wargamign chums. Sharp Practice probably being me favourite. By reading between the lines and playin g itn the spirit the rules were meant (I think) we get a good game.

I agree. Probably best not rewritten by the creators as the rules will then get 'tea breaks' and other silly in vogue Lardisms. Just adapt what's there already.
