Completed the mounted elements for this force which completed the OOB for 2nd El Teb at a 1-20 scale -

And the start of the colonial forces

If you do set that game up, I'd love to join you - seems like Yorkshire is God's Own County when it comes to light-hearted colonialism  :)

That's fantastic! I love the Sudan and hope to return to it soon as a gaming project. These days there's so much inspiring stuff around for an aspiring Sudan gamer that it's a wonder everyone isn't doing it.
I've added you to my list of people to copy :)

Unless just caught on to this project, Deedles.
 :o :o :o

Stunning stuff, both in scale and results.
 :-* 8) :-*

I shall not be doing any Colonial* stuff for a very long time, so I can safely watch this and drool.
Brilliant!
 :D



*Plans for expanding the VSF stuff does not count, by the way.

Really lovely collection you have there. Some of my gaming buds and I are just getting started on a Sudan project so this is inspiring stuff.
