I would like to thank Panos1975 (now a new LAF member) and Thanos K for the contribution of their excellent figure collections!
It was a game to remember!

Ah, I love the look of a well groomed savannah - or floor carpet - as the case may be!   lol  Yes, very nice game and report.  Though not an African animal in sight - or was I distracted by all the action (no fair saying they ran off because of all the gunfire!)?!  

As to the comment on the carpet, I have a nice canvas ground cover I painted - eight different layers of paint, one color per layer that I think is generally very effective. However, close-ups reveal the same issue, some all too 'regular' lines in the weave of the material.  Oh, well.  What really matters is that it works in the game - and yours does.

And the animals?  Well, I just plain like to see them in a game for no other reason than I like to see them in a game.

Sad to think that those fine looking horses will soon be consumed by the ravages of the tse-tse fly.  I do hope you had unhorsed versions for the next game in the area to reflect this bit of 'reality'.   :D

An epic game, I really enjoyed reading through this.

Lots going on and the narration and sense of humour made a good report epic.
Cheers

Love the story.

I'm glad you liked it, I tried to take pictures while we were playing, trying not to disturb the flow of the game.
At the same time, I had to take care of the correct photo frames, to match the narration I had in mind.
