We were playing with my Sudan collection, giving a number of new units a first run out .
The Egyptian column advances
Mahdsist move in on the British garrison
Mahdists move out from the oasis area toward the Egyptians
Time for a spot of tea...
The Gardner gun did bloody murder! no jams this time!
Brits casualties begin to mount
The Egyptians deploy all the fire they can..
Those pesky Egyptian lancers are about again..
to get more fire power the British expand their lines
|a fire sight!|
The mahdist did some damage to both the Egyptiand and the Brits , but their morale was incredibly fragile and broke at every opportunity pretty much , and at that the day was over!
We had a visit from Ray and Postie who had ventured north for a change - nice to see you both. There was lots a conversation with table visitors as well.
There were , as usual a number of excellent looking games , too many to do photographic justice too.
I picked up a pack of a4 ferro sheet, and matt varnish. For a Sudan lead pile stock up 3 packs of Foundry mounted infantry, another Egyptian gun, a box of British infantry, a Flashman figure, and Gordon at Khartoum vignetter piece. James gifted me a bunch of 6mm Leven miniatures building , most industrial design to expand the terrain bits for the modern collection
I also picked up from a pre order from Sally Forth or Really Useful Box inserts , as I am rationalising storage arrangements for the WW2 project at the moment
All in all , a great weekend.
