You will find me on table GB10 - Guisborough "Occasional" Gamers. If you are there pop along and say hello.
I have a "big" Sudan game planned - using Black Powder and bits from the "Sands of the Sudan.
If you are interested in game let me know.
|These bring a nice splash of colour to the table
|The original inspiration for this one.
|The visible mahdist defenders are deployed
|The imperial column advances
|its a large distance to cover to take the village
|The brigades start to expand to check for mahdists on their flank
|Scouts lead the way forward
|Excellent long range shooting from the mahdist guns and skirmishers cause problems
|Mahdist rifleman appear from the wadi
|The Black Watch deploy to chase off pesky marksman
|just as 4 Beja warbands turn up. The Hussars join the fray cutting one down completely
|The right deploys into line , but the centre is a bit thin....
|The gatling deploys to provide more support
|The mahdist mounted troops bound across the wadi to press 1st Brigade
|Terrifying charge are held .. but only just , casualties are taken.
|Maximum firepower deployed....
|Volley fire!!! sees of the cavalry ..
|it wasn't a good time for the gatling to jam boys!! the gunners are cut down!
|The RMLI find themselves under pressure - with screaming Beja all around..
|it gets worse as the Yorks & Lance retire leaving the RMLI surrounded - and massacred!
|The British pressure on both flanks finally breaks both mahdist brigades and the army flees!
|Brits - Martin, James, John... CinC Roy is hiding!
|Mahdists - Steve, Pete Stuart
|The full brigade in square watching our for the Fizzy Wuzzies.
|the Wadi sections about 7 feet altogether
|Vac form hills , and ready made ones
|Figures and some tokens to use as markers
|Yes that does mean a future Zulu project!
