Kamerun Gunboat Battle
« on: February 26, 2016, 06:39:32 AM »
This week Axabrax and I managed to get in a small game using his new river mat and my jungle terrain.  A German gunboat needed to fight its way past a French held river outpost.







The battle report can be found on the blog:

Thanks Guys! It was a really fun time, though I wish I had made it a bit father down the table (had a lot of bad dice rolls).  We used the "In The Heart of Africa"  rules by Chris Peers.

Great looking table and boat.  The Miniature Building Authority trading post is a wonderful building.  Good stuff all!  Richard

Great looking game!!

I agree the river section looks great.....along with the rest of the scenery.

When one of them sinks does it become the James Kamerun gunboat battle? :)

I painted these several years back, so I'm guessing at the colors right now. I think the dark tones were a Games Workshop color (beastal brown?) with Vallejo desert yellow as the mid tone and and Vallejo dark sand for the highlights.
