Very nice

Just wondering if you have any of the French sash and sabre command packs, I'm curious what the post of the officer and nco's are like

Excellent looking Hessians, things are coming together, like the sapper.  How many figures will you have in this battalion?

Planning to have most units at 40. Pretty much there with the Hessians now.

A great write up, the figures and terrain look great, especially the Hessians.

Wonder, what is the largest size game playable in Sharp Practice, there are many things I like about it, but not sure if larger units are possible?

cheers

Cheers Paul, I think I could have managed a slightly larger unit per side  but no more units than I had if that makes sense. Pushing the boundaries of what works at the point of this many figures I think.

I may have my posts out of order, got a few in draft ready to post at the moment, but here is the last one for WIP on the Spanish and Hessians.
