Solo Sudan Game
« on: May 16, 2018, 08:00:11 PM »
For a variety of reasons itís been a while since Iíve run a game for my friends so I thought it best to do a solo play test and re-familiarize myself with the rule sets Iím going to use.  First up is a game using David Bickleyís, ĎA Good Dusting.í  The scenario is based on one I found in, ĎTSATF Scenario Portfolio 2016,í from Sergeants 3.  A British force containing 3 battalions of Regular infantry, a unit of Bluejackets and supporting artillery will attempt to relieve and bring away an Egyptian garrison besieged by Osman Digna.  Here are a couple photos of the initial set-up.

Great!

Where is the Egyptian garrison?

(I need to talk to your Dervish commander.  I have some dhows he might be interested in.  :)

With one battalion thrown out to cover the right flank, the main column of the relief force advanced towards the besieged town while friendly Arab scouts reconnoitered rough ground for possible ambushes.

Before long, two groups of Beja tribesmen appeared on the left of the British column.  First blood went to the beleaguered garrison as it inflicted two hits on the group of Beja skirting past the town.

The majority of the British figures are Peter Pig, as is one of the gunboats. The other gunboat is from the Old Glory Miniature Shipyard.  The Beja unit that took casualties is comprised of Gallia Miniatures while the other unit is of Peter Pig figures.  All of the buildings are from the older, resin line formerly produced by Crescent Root Studios.  The vegetation along the river is from Battlefield in a Box.  The palm trees are from various wargame convention flea markets over the years.
