A Ridge Too Far…the Egyptian invasion of Ethiopia, 1875...AAR
« on: January 12, 2017, 12:07:33 PM »
Gents,

agrabbagofgames is back with the first of 2017 posts.

This one sees us heading up country Ethiopia-Eritrea in 1875 by the Egyptian Khedive’s forces on a bit of imperialist expansionism - Egyptian style..in this case..a ridge too far...

Rules were Rifles & Spears and a top game had by all…lots of pics to see. Plus a bit of a review of the terrain mat by Tiny Wargames…very nice mat.

Hope you can check it out…

A great looking game and an interesting war I didn't know much about.

Lovely stuff! A real game with a difference. Will we see the return of 'Bin Charlie?' Nice figures and the mats look great.
