It looks amazing!

A couple of thoughts:

Have you considered leaving a few minies at the office for the next day?
If you need a bigger fort, you could cast a few plaster copies in the original. Since its a renewable resource you can cut them to pieces and build a huge modular fort!

I painted some more minis for my Ansar force.






Originally I intended to use my NWF brits for the counter part. But after reading so many cool things of the egytian army, I wanted to try something more like this....;)

I searched my plastic pile for suitable minis and found some old ACW frames from the Perrys and some newer Zouaves.
Added a little geenstuff to get some fezes on the heads and of it goes...:)

Okay perhaps not perfect, but I am no button counter....:D






The guys in bluea re the officers btw....;)

Cheers,
Don

Little thread necromancy here, but I found a few shots of a game I played with the sudan stuff...;)

Nothing too fancy, but I thought I shared it anyway.
We did two small games with a Scenario were the egyptians had to reach some spots of water or die of thirst. The ansar force was more or less defending the wells and a few barrels...

Here you can see the setup.





In both games the egyptians just got to the water. Pretty close matches...





Still tempted to add some more minis to the setting....;)

Cheers,
Don

A very fine game and a real inspiration for anyone looking at doing the North West Frontier! I like the terrain especially.

The terrain is stunningly realistic  :-* and it is worth considering to add some more figures!
