Suddenly Sudan

Posted by Ochoin on 27 May 2024, 02:28

With the impossibility of staging an ECW game this year at our annual local Train & Hobby show, we finally settled on the Sudan. Oh, well, the weather will be nicer.
I decided to run through a solo game using Black Powder for the first time. This was a "throw what you got on the table & play" sort of game - no subtilty. Just try out the gaming mechanisms.
The Anglo-Egyptians ended up narrowly winning.And the game went fairly smoothly & quickly.
Essentially, the A-Es had to travel from their camp & their riverine transport to the other end of the table.
In this game, the Nile steamers were just 'eye-candy' but they can have "bite" being heavily armed & crewed.
Dismounted Camel Corps, ready for action:
The column;
NB plenty of Scotsmen. "You can have too many Scotsmen" is a logical fallacy.
The Mahdi, himself:
Always using the terrain:
Haddendowah 'goodness':

And it's always time for a photo opportunity:

I still have things to do - figures on the painting desk, limber horses etc. And this represents half of the figures we'll be tabling when my pals add their forces.

That looks very nice with a period feel.

The mat, cork? looks very good indeed.

Best wishes,
