I am considering the purchase of this supplement, but could someone please confirm how many Somali infantry and cavalry are required for the largest of the scenarios in the book?

Cheers

the 4 rth scenario "set piece battle" says 36 cavalry ,20 rifle armed foot and 140 spear armed foot plus the Mad Mullah himself for the somalis . the 5th scenario has about 160 somalis 36 being rifle armed and 1 gun + crew I think those are the 2 largest just had time for a quick scim through hope this helps

....and they can all be scaled up or down depending on your lead pile... ;)

They certainly can.  I wrote them that way :D :D

In that case sir, you recently cost me 200 infantry, 30 cavalry and 20 camel riders 🐫

Cracking supplement, I can't wait to give it a run out 👍

Sounds intriguing, is this a scenario book or a supplement with scenarios? Where can it be purchased?

It is a short history with scenarios for the campaigns in Somaliland and Darfur.  It can be bought from Caliver Books
