A Struggle Along the Nile - Sudan 1884/85

Seeing the main theme for my last few posts have been to do with the Sudan it seemed only fitting that we played a game with the same theme, so last night Victor Perry and Brian Buskell dropped in for a game. The game was also must likely one of the last games I will get to play with these guys, as myself and the family are moving back up to North Queensland shortly.

The game played had no particular scenario only I had Brian and Victor choose a 800pt Army each, from Andrew Parr's Fortune & Glory Colonial supplement, and then they placed down their objective markers.

I also tried to use every piece of new terrain we have built over the past few weeks just to set the scene and brighten up the gaming table. Brian would have liked to have used the paddle steamer but I was not quite sure how we would have incorporated it into the point system. However it would be something to consider in future games.

Figures were a mixed of Perry, Old Glory, Cast-a-Way Arts and Black Tree Design and were either painted by myself, Scott Robertson, Leroy Simpson or Professionally Painted by Eye.

I have to admit I do love this period and intend on expanding the collection in the not to distant future..so please the images.
