As briefly mentioned some time ago, I have been looking for a nice small scale skirmish system that would be on it’s own for French Indian war. After reading quite a bit about Sharp Practice, it appeared to fill the bill. French Indian war conflicts were relatively small size and I think that the variety of situations would create interesting skirmish games. Additionally, French Indian war is interesting take on the conflict and one of my favorite topics.
Now the question rises, which way to go. 6mm, or 10mm? Obtaining minimum packs from Baccus would almost certainly provide more troops than ever needed. On the other hand, it would be nice to try out Pendraken 10mm for a chance. Incidentally because of the lesser overhead, Pendraken would probably be better of the two… Of course Adler would be yet another alternative.
Overall, 10mm would probably also be somewhat better from handling perspective, but the question is also of visual appeal. 6mm can be visually nice, but they work better in larger groups. Then 10mm is probably not yet too far off on my limited table size (1m x 1,5m). Real ground in scale would then be maybe 200m x 350m or something along those lines.
Any opinions or experience to share?
