I mentioned earlier that I had submitted a New Zealand Wars scenario (using the Sharp Practice rules) into the Too Fat Lardies’ scenario competition.
Well, it made second place, and a link to the PDF has just been published on the Lard Island blog:
The topic for the scenario is the Flagstaff War, so its perfect for Empress Miniatures’ new range (of which my first order is on its way down here as I type).
The scenario concerns Hone Heke and Kawiti’s raid on the town of Kororareka in 1846. I’ve written a backgrounder, briefings for both sides and umpire’s notes. I’ve tried to replicate the light and airy tone of the Too Fat Lardies’ other Sharp Practice scenarios … hopefully I’ve succeeded.
Please bear in mind I am no historian, only a gamer. So, yes, there probably are historical inaccuracies and liberties taken. But for me, its all just a game!
So, please, go to the Lard Island blog, download the PDF, and enjoy!
