Battle in the Sudan: Relief of Atbara- Part 3``

Some images of the Mahdist army gathering to resist the British landing....and capture the fort! (the Krupp guns are served by captured Egyptian crews)

a "Rub" (3 units of 10 figures each) of Dervishes!

Mahdists tents in the background (actually 15mm scale Flames of War pre-painted North Africa terrain but it works ok in the distant pics)

Mahdist CinC with his standard bearer

Camelmen and cavalry mass to the attack

Mahdist cavalry (just painted)

In this game the Mahdist infantry units of 10 figures will each be "recovered" once,.... essentially doubling the Dervish force.

Once again, everything looks great!

What rules are you going to use?

PS, I'm still hoping for dimensions on all of your river boats (they are fantastic)

Very nice!

Mad Carew said...

Great looking game. I hope there's more...

They are fantastic looking figures. I love the camelry in particular!

Best wishes

I echo the previous comments but the unit for me is in that first picture, the Haddendowah.... lovely stuff....

Jeff, I'm using The Sword and the Flame 20th Anniversary edition with 1/2 sized standard units.

I'll get those boat measurements up asap...that is the hardest part of getting them constructed because if you get things too small there's no room for figures and too large, no room for the boat on the table!

Steve, Yes I agree those Hadendowa are fun to do! ...and a quick job to paint.
