WW1 East Africa - Part 2
Monday 29th August 2016 - WDW
DBM scrap - Andy's Hussites versus Medieval Irish. It's always a grind when you are pitting blade against blade. This game was no exception and eneded up a draw.
On the other tables - Square Bashing and a boardgame.
I started off by playing Pocket Battles. I hadn't had a game of this for quite some time and had forgotten the rules. I didn't get the initiative so my fate was sealed in the first round by loosing about one-third of my forces. Something needs to be done about the tremendous advantage that the first player gets - doubt that I will be having another game soon.
Thursday 1st September 2016 - WW1 East Africa - photos at last!
British 'regulars' - Hat British Inf in Tropical uniforms (plus a few others)
HaT WW1 Indian Infantry to the left, Revell (I think) to the right.
Right - Zulus converted to Masai
Front - two HaT British machine guns
Well that's all the figures I need for the September fight. Will add extra painting detail as time permits.
