I wasn't aware there was an EU distributor or have I missed something?

tabletopper.nl and miniaturicum.de are two of them but they do not list all the Empress ranges on their websites

This from Helion:
DUST OF GLORY: The First Anglo-Afghan War 1839-1842, its Causes and Course, Bill Whitburn:

https://www.helion.co.uk/military-history-books/dust-of-glory-the-first-anglo-afghan-war-1839-1842-its-causes-and-course.php

"The Russian-sponsored attack by the Shah of Persia on Herat was the latest move in the longrunning tournament for predominant influence in Central Asia called the Great Game. Its proximity to India could not be tolerated as it threatened British designs for the expansion of trade along the Indus valley. Urged on by hawkish secretaries, hoodwinked by the wily Maharaja of Punjab and prompted by his political masters in London, the ostensibly peaceful Governor-General of India, Lord Auckland, ordered the assembly of a vast army to counter the Persian move. The opportunity was also to be used to replace Shah Shuja back on his ancestral throne of Afghanistan. At the eleventh hour, Persia withdrew from its failed attack and to many a sage observer, Lord Auckland should have ordered his army back to barracks. Instead, an army of 10,000 soldiers, 50,000 transport animals and 30,000 camp followers advanced in December 1839 for the single purpose of regime change. From the very first blare of bugles and the cracking of whips, this glorious army was to prove that the path to Hell is paved with good intentions. In Dust of Glory the author explores the causes of the First Anglo-Afghan War and describes its course gleaned from a multitude of sources supported by seventeen sketch maps of key actions. No lessons were learnt as five more conflicts were to follow in this country that only produces fruit, nuts and opium."

Absolutely love the first Anglo Afghan War range, they're very close to tempting me back from my wargaming hiatus.

Are there any skirmish rulesets, with history etc. On this war that I am missing? I know that SP would suit, but not sure they have anything specific to the conflict. Would The Men Who Would be King be the closest?

Apologies if I'm missing something obvious!

I would say for skirmish times sets The Sword And The Flame or TMWWBK, though my personal preference is TSATF.

A very LARGE release from Iron Duke for their 28mm GAPS RANGE.

Get these whilst their hot. If you are thinking of picking these up at the Parizan show in a few weeks then place a pre order with us as stock will move quickly and we may suffer shortages due to sales and replenishment timings.

To place an order for Partizan just send us an e mail shopping list.

Cheers, Paul
