Paul from Kallistra brought his Hexon Terrain and WW1 figure collection for a massive WW1 encounter using his own Raging Empire rules.
Meanwhile fellow Wyverner Phil hosted a string of linked battles in the Sudan using Black Powder.
I played a Brigade Commander in Colonial Army as we marched out into the desert to crush
The plan for the day was a series of linked scenario's with the results of each battles impacting on the forces available in the next.
My Brigade consisted of.
-28th Bengal infantry
Two further brigades were commanded by Ian and John - Time for a jolly good dusting....
The plan was simple advance down the centre of the table fending off any of the nasty locals and reach the far end, easy a quick stroll in the desert before stopping for tiffin.
Game 1 draws to a close with the Mahdists withdrawing behind the dunes.
Game 2 - Take the high ground.
Take the village and the high groud, securing both the well and the spring so our troops could push on into the desert, what could possibly go wrong...?
Game Two draws to a close with the Naval Brigade reaching the ridge line and fending off the remaining Madhists.
Game 3 - Hold the Line.
With the ridge secure time to press on to the village, we re-ordered the brigades, after my poor show in losing some of the best troops in game two, I took the artillery park and cavalry leaving the fighting to Ian and John.
The British hold on securing the village.
A cracking days gaming.... Cheers Phil.
