This is the Kenyan table, British coming from the right and Communists on the left. No idea what the scenario was as I was rather busy getting my men shot on the other table.
Here you can see some of the nasty rebellious Communist types sneakily sneaking through the bush. Damned sneaky types!
The other game was a Rorke's Drift scenario set up by Nathan "Stumpy" Goodyear. There were
Four very dodgy types commanded the British garrison. Jon "I'm used to be indecisive" Jones was both Chard and Bromhead and commanded the defenders of the storehouse. His command style can only be described as changeable. In 4 turns he ordered the British to fall back to the smaller compound, then countermanded that to hold the larger hospital compound and, then, changed it back to the original plan. It's probably best not to mention the redoubt either, which was noticeable in its absence.
Here is CinC JJ deploying some of the thin red line as my son Michael "Where's all me troops gone" looks on.
The other British commanders were Michael, Charlie and Nathan. Michael defended the mealie bag wall behind the hospital as Sergeant Windridge and his command was let down badly by the actions of his immediate superior, Colour Sergeant Bourne! Charlie was defending the hospital as CS Bourne and, following a markedly exaggerated report to JJ, he was given 4 of Michael's men to bolster his defence. This came back to sting the Brits as Charlies sector was the most secure of all the British areas and Michael's wasn't. Nathan commanded Surgeon-Major Reynolds and a small detachment of soldiers tasked with building the redoubt. The less said about this the better, unless your a Zulu when you should mention it repeatedly.
The wall between the store and hospital was finally in action. It took the Zulu's a long time to get there as Charlies fire dice were damned good, whittling down several waves of attackers before they could get to charge. the action ended as the Zulu's fell back to lick their wounds. The British had held out again, but with horrendous losses of well over 50%. Thanks to Nathan for putting the game on and everybody else for playing it so well. A thoroughly enjoyable game. Now get painting so we can do Isandlwana!
Anyway, I am off now to prepare tonight Bag the Hun game. Have fun and I'll catch you later.
