Emin Shapiro's walled house
« on: February 11, 2020, 06:19:29 PM »
Emin Shapiro, famed naturalist and adventurer,  is Governor of the Gunga Alunga region on the Sudan/Congo border.

He is beset upon by all sorts of bad guys, Mahdista, Arab Slavers, bad humored native tribes, etc.

it always falls on my beloved, Mary, to lead a small relief force from Suakin, fighting her way through Mahdi desert territory, until she reaches the semi jungles of upper Alunga.

"He needs a house", she said.  "The natives, Mahdists and Arabs have cool houses"   

So, in 3/4ths completion, here is Emin Shapiro's humble abode.  modular walls, carved out of magnets, so the bad guys can end turns on top of walls, as per TSATF rules.

Naturalist? Is that meaning Sans Clothing?

Smokey, I’m doing a NWF game. A re-make of the famed “Last Pack Train out of Ahoogastan” game originally ran by Jay Stribling of the Jackson Gamers  from Mississippi as part of a colonial North Central Frontier campaign they did many a year ago and then ran for us in Florida at Recon in 2005.
