At the Trenton Gaming Emporium this past weekend, we had a very enjoyable outing with Sharp Practice 2, using the Carlist Wars collection. Facing off against the Carlists (commanded by Jack) were a predominantly British Auxiliary Legion force (commanded by Michael).

The Cristinos chose to upgrade their Level I Big Man to a Level III and ???
The Carlists were supplemented with an Exploring Officer, two irregular skirmish groups and a Level I Big Man to command them.
