I’ve finished designing some cards today for the Too Fat Lardies’ Sharp Practice ruleset to use in games set during the colonial New Zealand Wars.
I hope to give these cards a bit of a test-run at the Kapiti Wargames Club games day next weekend, when we put on a display game using Sharp Practice along with the Terrible Sharp Sword supplement for the American Civil War.
Grasp the Nettle cards
While the British will use the standard wording from the rules for their cards, I thought the Māori cards could use the first lines of one of their most famous haka (wardances).
Cards for the main and bonus decks
These (and the following pages of cards) are a combination of standard bonus cards from the Sharp Practice rules, some from the Too Fat Lardies’ Terrible Sharp Sword supplement for the American Civil War, and some I’ve made up myself.
British Big Man cards
My Empress Miniatures officers and NCOs feature on these cards. These pictures will make it easier for players to identify which card goes with which model soldier.
Māori Big Man cards
And these are the chiefs who lead my Māori forces, again from my Empress Miniatures armies.
